Fantasia says more women are single these days because too many women want to be leaders rather than walk alongside their men.

The 35-year-old American Idol winner discussed gender roles in an interview with the Breakfast Club on Monday, Sept. 16.

"We need more men to stand up and lead the way," she said. "Most women are trying to be the 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."

The mom-of-2, who is happily married to Kendall Taylor, continued:

"I feel like it's a generational thing, and we can talk and we can go real deep on that, I don't need to start that. But it's a generational curse in how society has placed our men, and women have to stand up and be the mother and the father and the provider. So now, you're so bad you can’t be told nothing that when the right man comes, you lose him because you're trying to be the man."

She said team work is the key to a happy marriage and that women should "learn to submit" and let men be natural born leaders.

"At the end of the day I'm the neck, my man's the head. So he can't make any moves without his wife. It all works together. But you can't be the head of the house. You got to let the man be the head of the house. But it's a generational thing and it's what we've been taught. Stand up, be strong… And a dude comes and everything about you is a man.

"You have to learn how to submit. You can still be a queen. A king needs his queen. It's certain things that he can't see that we see. Anybody play chess? We work together. But the queen has to sit back and allow the king to be the king."

 

Rihanna in Prague

We're not sure what look Rihanna was going for here. No matter how fashionable Rihanna is, she is not going to make Shoesocks a thing. The Bajan singer was spotted after her concert in Prague in the Czech Republic on Wednesday.

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."

    Fantasia still cannot spell

    Fantasia's poor attempt to promote her new single, "Lose to Win", backfired horribly on her. Fantasia, who earned her high school diploma at age 25, continues to struggle with illiteracy. But she's not alone. 24% of the American population are functionally illiterate.

    Fantasia like you've never seen her

    After being dumped by one man (rapper Dro) and about to be taken to the cleaners by another man (her baby daddy 'Twan) -- Fantasia has a new attitude.

    You have to love Fanty for bouncing back after every major, much-publicized failure in her life. Lesser women would have caved or checked out of life. But not Fantasia. She just gets her hair and nails did, loses a little weight, and she's back on top again! I know a couple of men right here in Atlanta who would hit that!

    Fantasia posted these pics of her new look on her Instagram page. Get it girl!

    My regular readers know that I strive to maintain credibility on my site. If I write an erroneous story I will make a retraction. Last week I wrote that Fantasia Barrino's brother Ricco Barrino was signed to T.I.'s Grand Hustle. But according to Ricco's publicist that information is incorrect. But Ricco does write songs for Grand Hustle artists. As you know, Ricco will make his star turn on American Idol this season.

    Speaking of Fanty, she drove the kids crazy in Decatur over the weekend as she performed for not one, but two gay clubs. I hear she walked away with a cool $28,000 for performing every title in her catalog. They say she had to be pulled off the stage at 2:30 am Saturday night so she could go sing Happy Birthday to her alleged boyfriend Young Dro at Club Crucial.

    If the rumors are true about Fanty and Young Dro, that would bring the total list of women that he's seeing on the side to three - including his baby mama.

    Read the publicist's email after the break.

    If this is old news I apologize, but I was not aware that American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino had a brother. Somehow I assumed she was an only child. According to American Idol Worship blog, the seventh season of American Idol begins tonight, and Fantasia's brother Ricco Barrino is one of the contestants.

    According to them, Ricco is expected to win it all. I hear the major labels are in hot pursuit of the brotha. They say his voice sounds like a male version of Fantasia, whatever that means. I have never seen an episode of AI, so I'm counting on you guys to keep me up to speed on whether he wins it all or goes back to flipping burgers at White Castle.
