Fantasia

Do As I Say,

Not As I Do (Or Say)

8/29/2010 4:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Fantasia Barrino admittedly took a whole bottle of aspirin because she "wanted it to be over with" -- but in a Las Vegas club Friday night, she made the whole incident seem like something that was done to her ... not something she did to herself.

It's been three weeks since her "suicide attempt" and Fantasia has gone back to shooting her reality show and promoting her new album. She performed at Rain nightclub over the weekend where she told the crowd, "They thought I was finished, they thought I was done, they counted me out. But I will never, ever stop. I don't care what nobody say about me ... Don't let your haters stop you. Don't let nobody stand in the way of your destiny."

Just a few days ago, Fantasia told VH1 (the network that airs her reality show), "I wanted to go to sleep and just be at peace. I knew exactly what I was doing. You can't accidentally take a whole bottle of pills."

She knew what she was doing all right.

Who kills themself by taking a bottle of asprin? I know attempts are a cry for help, but hers was a cry for publicity. Get OVER yourself already...no one really cares....and as #1 says, brush up on your chinese so you can meet our new masters!

I have no respect for this woman. This was nothing more then a publicity stunt. Other then leaving this comment, I won't watch, listen or buy into anything she does. Not giving her a dime of my hard earned money nor should you.

The quicker we all unite and come together and do this, the quicker she will disappear from the spotlight. TMZ, you ought to be ashamed for even posting a story on her. I know I'm ashamed to see it on your site. You're just like the rest of them....buying into what this pathetic waste wants.

What are y'all expecting? Perhaps you would be happy if she were out promoting suicide like Rihanna's Russian Roulette song. You seem mad that she's not somewhere sinking deeper into a depression trying suicide again. Instead she is being smart about it, if people can try to use her troubles against her to bury her, then it's only smart of her to use them to elevate herself. All she did was date a grown man, she didn't rape and kidnap him, she committed no crime. It's not like she got on drugs like Eminem, or went to jail for committing a crime like Lil Wayne and T.I. Those things only seemed to help their record sells too yet the media isn't calling their troubles publicity stunts.

I hope Fantasia stays strong for herself and her daughter. She made a mistake as everyone does. She needs to rise above it and ignore the hate people spew out at her. She needs to remember that jealous people love to kick someone when they're down. She needs to remember this too shall pass. :D

Follow-up to my post to why I said what i said....

if this was all true about her then she would have taken time off to HEAL not self promote! Big difference! Spend time in therapy and with your family/daughter. Not in the SPOTLIGHT!

Get HELP not sell records. Of course, same class of people trying to save her career as she is...trash!

ASPIRIN?? All that is going to do is give you a really bad stomach ache and diarrhea. If she really wanted to kill herself, she would have tried something a little stronger. Like Sominex or Gravol.
