Fantasia’s recent Breakfast Club interview went viral after the soul singer spoke candidly about submission in relationships. Fantasia, who has been married to Kendall Taylor since July of 2015, expressed that women are still single because they refuse to give their man the reigns in the partnership.
“Most women are trying to be a leader, that’s why you can’t find a man. You can’t be the king in the house. Fall back and be the queen and let your man lead the way,” she told the radio hosts.
“You have to learn how to submit,” she urged.
Later on Fantasia and her husband took to social media to clarify her statements. “Submission is supposed to be a beautiful song and dance between two lovers,” Mr. Taylor explained.
“What’s happened is, men have abused that gift … I submit daily to the most high. I stay in my scriptures, I continue to feed myself with things that help me build my character to reshape my perspective that was messed up in the streets … so I can come to my wife from a pure position,” the devoted husband cleared up.
Now Fantasia is opening up even more about her relationship dynamic with her hubby, telling Angela Yee that the two were wed just three weeks after marrying.
“When I first met my husband- this was the keeper. We became friends first, and we got married very, very fast,” she told the “Lip Service” hosts.
“If you wanna ask me any questions about that, we can talk about it. We got married in three weeks! I’m a hopeless romantic! But I knew he was the one when I was getting ready to go on the road and he kneeled down and was like, ‘Can I cover you?’ And I was like, ‘Cover me?’ He kneeled down and started praying. And I couldn’t even get caught up in the prayer, ’cause I was like, ‘Is this real?’”
Even though their courtship was short lived, Fantasia was impressed that Kendall didn’t bring sex into their friendship.
“And then I kept watching how he flowed and he never gave me no ooh’s and ahh’s, ‘You bad’- he never tried to sleep with me,” she revealed.
“We were married before we made love. That was one of the things I wanted, too. There were just certain things that I asked God for that he brought to me through my husband.”
