@Truth Who the F*** are you? Fantasia is one of the most underatted singers.The clowns that should leave the entertainment business and who(CAN'T) act a scene or read much less sing note would be Brittany "Bald Head" Spears as a matter of fact since your telling us Fantasia is going to be dropped let's talk about who really should be dropped Brittany she F****** K-Fed while he was married and hell even got on T.V.looking like a bald headed monkey and placed her already nasty feet on nasty pavement.By the way (she can't sing)Who knows what kind of drugs Brittany was on (Why don't you go find that Sh** out?)I know you need them making comments like those.Linsey Lohan (what is her purpose other than doing cocaine and nearly killing people?) Keisha (The party don't stop)another one that can step off the ledge. As for the pig statement @squeaky You sound as retarded as Sarah Palin (aka dumb a** clown)She can also find a steep peer. Palin and all of her childlike statements are rated C for Corny. Can she even read? We know she can't answer real questions in an interview and that's verbal. (Check on that one as well).And since your using Palins pig & lipstick in your comment ( your "piggypalin" did not win ),"fact" Fantasia did.-Fantasia has not left the building.Fantasia has more talent more charisma then any performer. She made a mistake and she's going to correct it I'm sure.If you don't like Fantasia that's your choice. But know whose worthy and whose not.

To fantasia my prays are with you and your family you are a child of god don't let nothing and no one come in between your love for god.I will not pass judgment because I'm not perfect and I think a lot of other people need to think about that as well. We should try and help her come over this not bring her down even more the words that you may say are very powerful if it was trying to take her on life we are not helping her by saying bad things about her we all make mistakes.I wish one day some of you people can walk a day in their shoes and see how it feels you never no what a person is going through. Keep your head above the water honey and you will make it

Fantasia may God speed you to full recovery.....for all the haters on here....that man had a choice to make not Fantasia.....if he were or were not happy at home, he is the one that repeated those vows in the site of God not Fantasia....he should have been home with his wife and his wife should have been home doing whatever it took to keep him there.....dont try and blame the other woman for a marriage gone wrong...because obviously there was something wrong to begin with.....Ladies learn to keep your man happy and satisfied and the OTHER woman dont have a chance

Fantasia is a child of The Most High God. This a warning to her and all those who want to be in this business without God . You can't do this and think that God don't see you. Matthew 6:33

No.93 ~ Emerald, Temper! Temper! for 1, it takes hard dedication, hard work and alot of hours to make it in da music industry it does'nt just happen over night, and nor does it just get handed to you! It's alot harder than you even know .... you 1st. have to be a musician, to even know where I am coming from, for 2, I don't trust no man, or woman I have my own dreams, I only trust in myself! So you go on hating and you have a nice life, later !!! Audi 5000 Gangsta. ~( DA ~ BIGDOGG )~ In Drumming & Bass Guitar. ~( S.O.S. )~ *

We will be praying for you, Fantasia! All of these haters and people passing judgement should be ashamed. They need to look at the Man in the Mirror. He that is without sin should cast the first stone. Nobody is perfect but people make ignorant comments like they are. To all those hating and passing judgement - Nobody has exposed what you are doing or have done "What is done in the dark will come to the light."

Seems to me if she was really serious about taking her life she could have taken advantage of all the other drugs that are readily available. Michael Jacksons doctors office is still open. Heck, just track down Lindsay, Paris, or any other celebrity that is nearby, they can get or tell you where to get the good stuff. You figure if those other celebs can get drinks at a bar depsite their being underage they can get most anything else. Except integrity and self esteem.
