R&B singer Fantasia blames the media (specifically the blogs) for breaking up her ill-fated relationship with Antwaun Cook.
Like most people with personality disorders, Fantasia pities herself and blames everyone around her for her problems. Fantasia, who is promoting her 4th studio album, Side Effects of You, said the album’s ballads about heartbreak are not based on her relationship with the former T-Mobile salesman.
“All of my music is not just based on Antwaun,” said Fanty in an interview with Ifelicious
“You know, he plays a big part. I think with the songs like, you know, where I speak about ‘I’m a lady, I’m a woman,’ and I came in at the beginning of the song and I say ‘Look, the world says this love is no good to me, but my heart says that it is.’ So I think it’s my way of speaking to everybody… You only heard what you heard, you only got what you got. But you never got to see that real love and that relationship, that friendship that we had.”
“They kept running with this whole knowledge thing, and she stole somebody from some woman… Well, if everybody really looks at it and goes and does their research, I won that case. So obviously, if I won that case, it never was what they said it was. But once something gets out there, people believe everything they hear, or they just put their own twist, their own spin to it…Regardless of what you say, he’s still my son’s father. I still do love him. No, we’re not together, but he’s still a great father, a great friend, and nobody’s gonna change that. So I would have to say that this album is my way of letting go of a lot of things, letting go of a lot of things holding me back, the world mainly.”
Any woman who breaks up another woman’s home to satisfy her own needs is selfish. Fantasia’s issues are with herself, but she continues to place the blame on others:
“But the main thing that hurt me, the industry was the main thing that hurt me. It wasn’t really the relationship. It was the world. It was me having to turn on my TV and seeing my name all over CNN, TMZ, all over the blogs, all over radio station. That hurt me the most. Some of the main people that sat and voted for me and said that they loved me, they were fickle. And stuff started happening, and people believed what they wanted to believe. And as far as putting all types of stuff out, that hurt me the most. But the industry hurt me the most…I never understood how someone could love you so much at one point, and then months down the line, everybody is against you, everybody’s trying to make a mockery of you.”
Fantasia said she isn’t the only one who stole a man from his wife. “And let me just say this, there’s been so many other artists, and I’m not gone say any names, who have been in the same situation that I have, but you never hear it,” she said, referring to Alicia Keys, Angelina Jolie and other shameless home wreckers.
“So Fantasia was that person that they said ‘Hey, let’s make her the crash dummy. Let’s make her the person who we’ll talk about. We’ll never praise her good but we will always expose her bad.’ So I would have to say “Side Effects of You,” my main hurt, all of those songs came from the industry…And I’m not just talking about Antwaun. I’ve been in a lot of relationships where they’ve just been, not good.”
Obviously she’s referring to her ill-fated relationship with rapper Young Dro. It probably hasn’t occurred to Fantasia that she’s just not meant to be in a relationship if all she is interested is breaking up other women’s relationships. She needs to work on her own issues and stop blaming the world for her problems. She has two children to raise. The media, the industry and the world are the least of her problems.
