I know Fantasia is just another celebrity who can’t wait for a fresh start in 2013, because after her recent comments, she’s caught some heat. Via her Instagram, Fantasia decided to go on a rant about people unfairly judging her for what she does in her private life, but condoning and doing many things ourselves that the bible says is wrong. While I can understand her wanting to get some things off of her chest about people consistently coming at her head about her decisions, the talented singer and former American Idol winner probably went about it the wrong way. She had this to say, with a picture of herself in a “graceful” ballerina pose, which has now been taken down:
“I Rise ABOVE IT ALL!!! THE WORLD IS GONE MAD. KIDS, THE GOVERNMENT, THE church House… Everybody Trying!!!!!!! Its a lot that going on that the Bible speaks about we should Not be doing. Weed legal in some places, Gay Marriage Legal BUT YET IM JUDGED!! Im not doing Nothing for you… My Life!!!!”
Clearly these comments weren’t given the “AMEN!” she was looking for, because as I stated, she deleted the comment. But on top of that, word spread about her comments, giving the impression to some that maybe she’s against gays, so her manager, Brian Dickens, put out a statement to clear the air about her actual support of the LGBT community:
Comments made by Ms. Barrino through her Intragram account were recently taken far out of context, and the purpose of this release is to set the record straight. Ms. Barrino is not now, nor has she ever been an opponent of the LGBT community. She has supported and performed at numerous events that are sponsored by the LGBT community. Whether it’s through a live performance or placement on social media, Ms. Barrino uses every opportunity to reach out and connect with her fans, all of her fans.
And in an effort to clear her own name from those coming at her head about her comments, Fantasia saw fit to take to Instagram one mo’ gin to set the record straight about what she really meant:
“It has been brought to my attention that something I said was taken out of context,” she wrote. “I Fantasia Monique Barrino don’t judge anyone because I don’t want to be judged. The gay community is one of my largest supporters. I support the gay community as well as they support me. Bloggers please stop misrepresenting the facts.”
I don’t think Fantaisa really meant any harm in her comments, but in the future, seeing as how she just can’t win with those who just don’t approve of her, she should just stop talking about her private life to “give people the facts.” Seriously. It’s not helping whatsoever, and you would think she would have learned that it doesn’t help to try and explain why you do what you do with your life to strangers. Just ask Alicia Keys and Gabrielle Union. As someone who exposed a majority of her life on TV, there’s really no going back from what people saw and decided to take judgment with when it comes to Fantasia. Just continue to make music, take care of your family and live your life, Fanny. And oh yeah, next time, just stick to posting pictures on Instagram, because these long rant-ish captions just get you in trouble it seems…
