The best thing that Fantasia can do with her life right now is delete her instagram account and go back to chasing married men at T-Mobile.
Last night, Fanny caused a hell fire when she took to her Instagram account to tell the world how she really felt. It wasn’t too long ago when she was dragged to death for misspelling the title of her own song. And her new offense is questioning the legality of gay marriage while she’s being judged. Apparently Fanny thinks there are much bigger fish to fry.
Once again, I was half sleep when all of this happened and was only able to screen cap a few of the responses to her madness, but they were very necessary. Although I like Fantasia as an artist (can’t say that I love her), I think that she’s one of those celebrities who’s better off seen and not heard…unless she’s singing. She has way too many open mouth/insert foot moments. After the break, check out an open letter to fanny from @Ahmier of Slay New York + some tweets, and post your thoughts!
My father used to tell me “I’m only doing this because I love you” right after he beat my ass for doing something I wasn’t supposed to do. With that being noted, I’d like for you to read (used lightly) this using the same sentiment.
From the beginning I’ve always been a fan of yours. I remember my friends dogging you after watching your American Idol audition, saying you looked like a stand in for the hood’s version of Donald Duck. I personally could care less about that nor did I let the question of how many food stamps you had to sell to get to the audition linger in my head for too long. Why? Because you were different, you had a story, and you could really REALLY sing.
I’ve cried to, worshiped with, made love to, ate bacon and chicken while listening to, healed from, and strip-teased to your entire catalogue, both released and unreleased. From “Baby Mama” to “Control Freak,” from “Move On Me Baby” to your cover of Elton’s “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word,” – I’ve BEEN HERE!
Now that I’ve given you a little history, I’m sure you can understand why I was so caught off guard by your statement on instagram last night. I don’t know whether you’re going to be cool or come out of the bag on me with this one so I’m going to keep it super light.
Never mind your lack of proper spelling (something I know you’ve struggled with visibly over the years) or the fact that you were standing on a table in a spandex snuggie – lets focus on the intentions of what you typed. It’s one thing to feel chastised and judged and express that accordingly, but it’s another to do to others what you don’t want done to yourself.
You stated that the world has gone mad and that not only kids but the government (take note of the n) and the church house as well are trying you. You complained about weed and gay marriage being legal and totally referenced it to being completely against what’s being taught in the bible as though that was supposed to make your situation any better or worse.
Lets just move outside of the bible on this one because it tends to be tossed around and used as a weapon of mass destruction only when the target isn’t one’s self. And being that you’re a mother of more than one child out of wedlock, one with a man who was definitely married at the time of conception, wrapping your lips around anything with the bible being the base shouldn’t be in your ministry. Especially considering that you are still unmarried. Unmarried. Oh and UNMARRIED.
As a celebrity you walk into this entire new world of being scrutinized and looked at as a super human like figure. When you gain a certain level of popularity you have to recognize and understand that it is up to you to pick and choose how the world views you. Accept that and live your life.
You can’t fuck up in public and then expect to never hear about it again. I mean you tried to kill yourself using sleep-aids bro? Over a married man who you then had a baby with, gave the last name to, and still ended up without a ring. That’s a big deal home girl.
I can understand you wanting people out of your business and into your music but when you are so publically careless with your vagina, you kind of put the negativity on the forefront. Gays are primarily the grunt of every female artist’s fan base, especially people like you. To put your struggle (or sin as you refer to them) against theirs because you’re tired of being picked on isn’t the move. And that whole weed thing? Girl. Plants are just that. Plants. This one just happens to put you above the clouds, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
I wish you, Chris Brown, Jazmine Sullivan, Tyrese, Keri Hilson and artists alike all had true media training. Sometimes it’s best to just shut all of the fucks up even when you’re dying to pop off. People can’t wait for you to do things just as this so they can hit you where it hurts.
The next time you want to throw a fit across the inter webs; at least have one of the little ones proofread it for you. If nothing else you should know that the kids are going to eat you alive on that note alone. I really want you to be great but you so have to start doing better. Don’t feel bad about the backlash either. Sometimes you gotta lose to win.
Until next time,
