Fantasia Barrino

Crackin' Suicide Jokes

9/10/2010 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's been one month since Fantasia Barrino attempted to kill herself with Aspirin and a sleep aid -- but now, the time has come to crack some jokes about it  ... at least according to Fantasia.

The former "American Idol" champ was boarding a plane in NY yesterday when she decided to open up about pills, her love life and, of course ... her new album.

This is ridiculous! Watch the video. She doesn't joke about her suicide attempt. She's questioned by someone with a camera about several things and he asks her if she's taken aspirin and she gives him a funny retort. She could have gotten angry, but she let it go and was a good sport about the guy questioning her.

I'm not even a fan of this woman, but I'm defending her quite a bit because of the judgments of others and ridiculous spin of the media.

Being a star does not automatically give you freedom from not so good choices. People don't always act or respond the way we want them to, and that's their way of doing things.

So many stars in the news with legal problems, but I think people get a charge out of saying evil things about Fantasia.It is plain to see that the nasty remarks are coming from children or fools.

Don't like her, can't say anything helpful, why waste your time?

Have you ever taken the time to go back over your life and revisit some of the choices you made and wonder why you did not make a better choice? Do you still have people talking about your past problems, I mean just won't let it go? Did you eventually mature? Did you wonder why people seem to remember your bad choices and keep it fresh during gossip and failed to see improvements you made because of your mistakes? Did people ever post their opinions about your looks, mentality, abilities, for people all over the world to see? Did it hurt you when that happened? Did your ever wish someone would help you to not make the same mistakes. Do you think Christ died on the cross to provide a way of atonement for only certain people? Did you figure out that Christ would not have died on the cross if we were not going to need forgiveness again and again? The One who hung on that cross is the ONLY ONE who does not need atonement.

I lost someone I shared my life with, just three months ago to suicide. It's not a laughing matter what so ever. This woman has put her friends and family through so much, which is now all apparently for fame.
She definitely has mental problems, that's for sure.
What a slap in the face to the tens of thousands of survivors of suicide who face one of the most complex grief processes. It takes years to get over the pain, and even then, it will never be gone.
I expect an half assed public apology from this woman soon. What trash.

For someone who deal with the public, that question to Fantasia was thoughtless, rude, and mocking. No suicide or the try is funny.

For the one who asked that question, think about it when you suddenly find yourself hurting from a problem that plagues you or someone you love.

Thing is, the public will never see it but if there is a real heart in your body, you should come back and repent of that question.

Being nosey is one thing, but being heartless to a bad situation is just plain sick.

Fantasia is a gifted singer. I'm all for her getting her act together, and refocus on singing. A suggestion is that she refresh her look and go with something more feminine. Her hairstyle doesn't do anything for her.

She'd look a lot better with something more like Diana Ross. She looks too much like a guy now. I know it's probably easier, but if she wants to be a star she needs to look like one. More diva with big hair and feminine, classic styles.

Also, she needs to get herself into some serious dance classes. She needs to learn how to move well to pull herself together. Fantasia needs to spend more time dancing and singing and less time with pointless family and men issues.

Get back to learning to dance, singing, and looking like a diva.
