R&B Diva Fantasia Barrino was the headliner at the annual 2010 BVI Music Festival that took place over the weekend and ended today. According to BVI News, the 25-year-old singer demanded that the concert organizers remove barricades that prevented her from getting up close and personal with her Virgin Island and Bahamian fans.

The audience roared its approval as Fantasia told the organizers the concert would not begin until the barricades were gone. With the barricades removed, Fantasia launched into her hit song "Free Yourself" as her fans rushed to the front of the stage. I must make a mental note to go see Fantasia perform the next time she comes to Atlanta. She is so passionate and dedicated to her craft.

    She just made me hot, and not in a good way. It's been raining/storming here all day, but I did get my eat on, I'm full. I like her shoes though. LOL. I won't mention that her toes are running away.

    Talk about working up a sweat... Live your passion Tasia!...but ummm....leave the tatts alone.

  • Ms_Psych

    The is just something about Fantasia that I just love about her. She country, and sometimes the dresses she wears I wish she wouldn't but I love her to death regardless. I have everyone of her cd's so far so just sings so passionately. I need a new cd from her soon too.

  • SugarPieHoneybunn

    Is that a keloid on her ear??

    Dear Fantasia,
    You have a great voice!! You have a little change in the bank too. Please hire a stylist. That dress is not for you. Those shoes are ugly. You have multiple tattoes and even a tramp stamp. You sure sweat alot. Is this because you drink b4 all ur shows? U stay drippin. Thats not cute. Hey at least u left ur shoes on this time!!! Every little bit counts!!
    Your fan,

  • Daisy

    Shoutout to my fellow ladies who also have "tramp stamps" I got mine for my 30 b day! :party:

    That's my homegirl right there! Yes she sweats a lot when she performs because she is not concern about her image she wants to give her fans all of what she has. She loves performing and gives it her heart. Added with her beautiful attitude and pure heart Fantasia is gem

  • winenroses

    Tasia always looks unclean to me, like she needs a bath. Can't get too excited about this chick.

  • ELove

    WHY would Fantasia DESECRATE that Beautiful Brown Skin of hers with THOSE Ugly-Azz Tatts (Just a Damn Shame !!!) So Many Females just don't have THAT Sense of Self & Knowledge of Their TRUE Sense of Value as A Beautiful BLACK Female (Truly Sad Indeed -- IMO) :shrug:

  • SugarPieHoneybunn

    LOL @ Daisy!!!

    Fantasia is sweating like that bc she drinks hennessy b4 her shows and she should be concerned with how she looks cuz she looks a HAM!! literally

  • CWhatsHerFace

    Bahamian fans? Naw there wasn't too many of those there! Fantasia tore that show up! Like SERIOUSLY! *Nothing can be sweeter than to be in the Virgin Islands*! Tasiaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

  • MandaPanda0408

    Dam.n Tasia got sum thick thighs :yes: I like her tats, she is sexy! And for those of you concerned about her sweating, perform outdoors in hot a$$ weather under lights and come holla @ me if u can stay dry!! SMDH!!!! :waiting:

  • SugarPieHoneybunn

    Whatever!!! @ PANDA

    This chick be sweating when its 30 below. Dont be hating on my comments!!! LOL

  • KK76

    Dang, E. I don't have a tramp stamp, but I have 2 tats. That I got at 19 & regret. Some of us were just young, dumb, and you know the rest.

    Hey Daisy Mae (& every one else)!! I'm sure your stamp is hawt :wink: I like Bittersweet too. So apropos right now #sigh

    I had an innie and now my navel is an outie. Too much bbq.

  • SugarPieHoneybunn

    @ KK76
    My cuz has her babydaddy's name tattoed on her tittay. That shit is so wide and stretched out after 5 kids and of course they aint together anymore. LOL I do like RhiRhi's tats though

  • Daisy

    My tramp stamp says strength courage and widsom (india areie song)

    I sweat easy so I cant talk about Tasia. I am soaking wet after spin class and I sit in the sauna it is what it is :shrug: I wish I wasnt such a sweater but I get it from my bio father sadly lol

  • http://dahoneyhive.blogspot.com ryand91

    Wow, you can take the chick out the hood but you can't take the hood out of the chick. I have tattoos but they most definitely aren't trashy or trampish but this heifer got them all over the place, look all hoodish.

  • SugarPieHoneybunn

    LOL @ ryand91

  • ELove

    @KK76 ...
    I KNOW You don't know me that well but I DON'T necessarily have anything against Tattoo in GENERAL because of the reasons YOU just stated about Your Tattoo(s)... I Just Hate UGLY-AZZ TATTOO(s) ON Beautiful Black Females (Real...) :wink:

    Tattoo(s) can be Sexxy BUT... and this is JMO... Beautiful BLACK Females don't need No Damn Tattoo(s) ESPECIALLY Ugly-Azz Tattoo(s) :lol:

  • TSRBenz

    she needs a better stylist


    Tasia sweats her ass off because she saangs her ass off every single time. She just needs to ask Bey about that damn wind machine she keeps with her.....

  • militaryspouse1

    Tasia always looks unclean to me, like she needs a bath. Can’t get too excited about this chick :rofl:

  • militaryspouse1

    im so busy laughing at that comment that I did that all wrong, but the above is from winenrose's comment

  • http://twitter.com/Ms_Missy2791 missy

    Even if their weren't any or many Bahamians their Sandra still representing for us... :lol:

    Sandra why don't you do a post on the Caribbean Artists who were at the Best of the best *coughs* mainly the ones from the Bahamas *coughs*....

    Also can anyone look up a boy named Sammi Starr and tell me what y'all think of him..because i already have my opinions but i want to know if he could make it internationally (please be honest...)...

  • Ms.Everything

    Just cause she sweats don't mean she drinks before shows. Everybody who sweats ain't an alcoholic and under the coldest conditions being up on that stage under all them lights is hot. Add to that she's singing her ass off, moving around a lot and wearing clothes and yes she's gonna be dripping. No not all artists are seen sweating as much but many artists aren't doing so much, singing so hard (or at all) and wearing a shit ton of waterproof makeup that's like paint and powder to mask the sweat.

    :cosign: Elove but I hate anyone with a body full of tats or big visible ones. Its nasty to me and I have one but its small and not visible when I'm out and about. A lot of people don't even know I have it til they see me in a bathing suit.

  • pointhimout

    aren't we supposed to sweat? she may be one of those who sweats easily. she's not photogenic either. way too many bad pics. i do appreciate her passion, hence I'm not as hard on her as I used to be. do ya thing fantasia. it's working for you.

  • http://twitter.com/ChaiLife Yadda Yadda

    I'm happy she's wearing shoes.

  • http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/profile.php?ref=profile&id=1335451522 therapist1911

    Yo Daisy your Tattoo sounds nice. Btw I love that India Arie song. I think you just gave me an idea for my next tattoo.

  • Shauny

    I am pro tats but sometimes you go TOO far (see above pics for examples). I've never seen Tasia sing live, I'll have to check her out (when she comes with someone I'd pay to see).

    I have 3 tats, leg, back, and armband and the one that I've had on my back since 19 that is almost faded completely away THANK YOU!! I only want my armband...but what are you gonna do when :shrug:

    @Sandra - are you gonna post the Matt Barnes tweets to the Basketball Wives. pure @b!tchassness

    oh and somebody on another site actually stole my A Keys song off here and posted it there as their own. I'm consulting with my attorney this morning :lolol:

  • Cinderella

    Good Morning. I like Fantasia's new song but this look is not what's up. :nono:

  • Zephyr1979

    I love Fantasia! It's just something so genuine about her, I think it may be knowing her struggle and what it took fro her to make it in the industry. Love that she is about her family, love it!

    I'm surprised she even has on shoes, wonder how long it took before those were kicked to the side, lol!

  • Daisy

    @shauny girl I saw those Bish azz tweets as well Matt needs to SAT down!!

    @the1911 Thanks :wink:

  • lovinme

    I saw fantasia in DC 2 years ago at the black family reunion and let me tell you she did the same thing... wanted to get close to the crowd...

  • mirsmommy

    Good morning.

  • cheeks8683

    Hope she threw away that dress after her performance... :hurl:

  • Musiqal1

    And now all she is doing is screaming too...like can you STOP screaming all the time?

  • Quitta

    I've seen her perform before, she's really good. You would get your monies worth.

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco

    At least she is wearing shoes but her tats are a bit much I'm sure she did tear the show down she can sing...

  • Lyssa02

    Big up to the BVI!!! Home sweet home!! I missed it but I did hear she tore the house down! BVI Music Fest, where sand & sea meet music!

    This is the point. These celebs go on stage trying to be cute pissing me off. When you pay for a show, give the people a show. Put in work. I can't stand seeing somebody walk up and down the stage like they can't put energy. I like the fact that Fantasia is passionate about her stage shows but she needs to show the same passion in the studio.

  • dragonbabe

    Morning All. I love me some Fantasia. She has such a beautiful voice when she's not screaming. Maybe if she stops screaming so much she would not sweat so badly. BTW can someone tell me what's a HAM and what's a tramp stamp?

  • tintin1979

    this girl is so run down. poor ting

    Hot azz mess. Tramp Stamp is a tatt you get on your lower back and it has a mans name on it but no one with that mans name on their back is with that man. :lol:

  • allwrightyden

    Ok Tasia, Imma need you to take that "too lil" dress off! All of your hunks are showing and thats just NOT cute! :blink:

  • DeliciousOne

    Why can't Fantasia just stay on the stage and leave the barricades alone? Doesn't she know that they are there for health and safety of the audience? She gets on my nerves being so needy and needing to feel the fans to perform. When someone gets crushed and injured because of her silly divatastic demands she will understand.
