"Idol" LaKisha Picks Up Fantasia's Crumbs

1/8/2008 10:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"American Idol" Fantasia Barrino not only blows off her performances -- but her fans too!

The singer gave her final "Color Purple" performance on Sunday, and after the show ended at 6:00 PM, fans waited by the stage door to get her autograph. Unfortunately, they were still waiting in the cold until 8:45 PM, when they were told she had already left! Damn! Ah, who needs fans anyway? Luckily, humbler "Idol" contestant LaKisha Jones, who also stars in the production, signed some pics for them -- on Fantasia's picture!

Also in NYC: Fabulously gorgeous "Enchanted" star Amy Adams, and board-trotter Jen Garner. In L.A., Danny Bonaduce credits TMZ with making his radio show interesting ... and Lil Jon just wants to relax!

Fantasia has left the building, bitches!

Fantasia is reportedly expecting again. Not the smartest career move, but I hope everything works out for her. LaKisha is not picking up anyone's crumbs, she has a contract. Let's wish her well. Chaka Khan will also appear in "Purple."

Fantasia had to pick her daughter up from the babysitters folks! She is a working mom you know. I guess Harry, I mean Harvey, Mr Levin wouldn't understand.

Don't be so quick to judge, TMZ. You have no idea why Fantasia left. Quit making stories out of non-stories just because Brit Brit didn't do anything in public for a couple of hours.

Party 'till you die!    

Oh, I really hope this day picks up! What about a story of how Brit's Talipap taught her how to breach K-Fed's fortress of sperm-donorhood and commandeer a slow moving Mercedes for a low speed chase with kids in tow ( and safely eating cheetos and sucking on baby bottles filled with espresso) .

Fantasia could have sent a representative to the stage door to apologize - so that the fans would not have to wait in the New York cold. It is not like being in Southern California.

It seems like Broadway is the dumping ground for all former A.I. contestants. Oh I forgot Mall openings,Bingo halls, Walmart appearances and Balloon races.

First of all, LaKisha ATE Fantasia. If you cut open her belly, Fantasia would be inside there.
Also, when Fantasia accepted the role in The Color Purple, she was fully aware of the tradition of the performers briefly meeting the fans at the stage door after the live performance. It is an unwritten rule. Therefore, a brief hello explaining she had to go (for a legitimate reasons) would have satisfied her fans. It is called MANNERS and RESPECT.

And don't forget about karaoke! There's a fairly new karaoke system with all the finalists' and winners' song from Season 1-6. Apparently Idols are doing it all. Here's the karaoke machine link:

I was never impressed with Fantasia and I don't think she will last long in the business. But Lakisha is very talented and seems to have a better overall personality. I wish her all the luck and success.
