She looks good in the

She looks good in the pictures, but I won't get my hopes up that she'll keep up the 'classy' look. What will return without the dressers, magic makeup artists and photoshop? A return of the hot ghetto mess!

WOW. I'll never forget when

WOW. I'll never forget when she can 2 Philly for the Big July 4th concert and she looked a hot ghetto mess.Came on stage with no underwear, shoes, or makeup.Just a wifebeater and bootei shorties taht people sleep in.She aped around the stage like a fool and ruined her image for all the fans that had waited in the rain to see her. Straight up ghetto

I HOPE MS.TASHA AINT WORRIED ABOUT THESE HATERS.THEY ARE JUST LIKE ME WHEN I SAW HER NAME I WANTED TO READ ABOUT HER AND SEE HER...SHE LOOKS WONDERFUL SIMPLY GORGOUS... SOME OF THOSE HATES ARE THE PEOPLE SHE LEFT BEHIND IN THE HOOD.THEY HAD NO TALENT AND WELL NEVER GET A BLESSING BECAUSE THEY MISSING WITH ONE OF GODS CHILDRENS. SHE HAS 200 TO 300 PEOPLE COMING TO HER WHEN THEY SEE HER NAME ON A BLOG...THATS A LOT OF PEOPLE TO JUST MAKE A COMMENT SHE IS FEIRCE!!!.

I agree! And I am a dark

I agree! And I am a dark skinned beautiful woman. I dont need anyone to cosign for Dark skinned women or "uphold our beauty" however its interesting how complexion biases are so embedded in the minds of black people including whoever posted the pics, that Fantasia is not even acknowledged as beautiful. I mean look at those photos... interesting??????????? Puh-leez! Chick is on point in these pics but I guess since she aint Bey, Ci-Ci, Cassie, Christina Milian or Amber Rose she isnt noteworthy. SMGDH! Damn shame. Im shocked and appalled.

I share the same sentiments.

I share the same sentiments. I wish the owner or manager of this site would speak out on that. It is very apparent that there is some bias. I got all the way down to the end of the page and saw "interesting pics"....., as if Fantasia is inconsequential. What a disappointment. If Im not mistaken the owner of this site is not light-skinned or physically fit herself so I would like to know what she stands for.

Leabank: If Fantasia was as

Leabank: If Fantasia was as fair as Rihanna and pranced around all dressed up, she’ll be very famous and making money hand over fist, but alas she is dark shinned. What a terrible world we live in! Tell em. Its a damn shame ppl dont want to give her credit and she has to be considered interesting looking. She is doin her thang but ppl dont want to give her the props like they do for Bey or any of these other fair skinned chicks. Its ok though
Ashleigh's picture

I agree! These pics are more

I agree! These pics are more than interesting, they are gorgeous. If it was Bey or Ciara folks would be quick to give props. Lets call a spade a spade. Upstage these Bitches Tasia.

Jobell: But that’s not

Jobell: But that’s not really how she looks! I have seen a few (a very few) very nice looking candid pictures of Fantasia, that I will give her props for. But the photographer gets credit for these amazing photos… not Fantasia. I have seen Fantasia many times in person and she is beautiful, the candids we usually see don't do her justice she is a very pretty young woman. Anyways, as it relates to giving the photographer full credit for the photos his work is phenomenal this is true, but he had to have something to work with. Fantasia is beautiful he simply bought more of her beauty to the forefront. However, this is my opinion as you have had yours. Peace.

There are tons of beautiful candids of Fantasia out there. But as usual these blogs pick and choose the craziest ones they can find to post. Like the pics of Fantasia that were posted on blogs earlier today and this weekend from a concert she did last week, they show the world the ones where she looking wild and crazy because they were action shots but if you go to the source and look at all the pics (there were about 75 in total) there were plenty amazing ones these blogs could have posted but that is not how the choose to portray certain people. Anyway these photos are amazing and if I recall correctly the old school promo shots she did before her last album were pretty amazing too.

FANTASIA LOOK BEAUTIFUL: I agree with you 100 percent Elite. Give Tasia her props interesting are you serious? She looks beautiful or FAB. For the record I am not a dark skinned female.

Tar Baby aka Coal Black

Tar Baby aka Coal Black African formerly known as African Girl: Look Oprah’s Color Purple would be nothing without Tasia. Oprah needs to the ground that Tasia walks on because nobody was coming to see the Color Purple until Tasia was in it. I read that the lines used to be so long and they all came to see Tasia. She doesn’t know how much she’s loved and she doesn’t even know how large her base is. I heard buses came as far as down south to see her. Yeah.....chick got talent!!! I give her that. I love Tasia though. She seems so real and down the earth! Even in her interviews!

Work it, Mama! Fantasia looks

Work it, Mama! Fantasia looks stunning in that red dress! Personally, I love them all but the red dress, hair, makeup etc. are all working for me. @Elite- I have to agree with you. I thought 'Interesting pics' was really sort of a "shoulder shrug" type remark at these beautiful pictures...which is odd because there have been MANY less than flattering pictures of Fanny posted on this site and so much more was said...all I'm saying is GIVE PROPS where props are due...like now.

I always regarded Ms. Barrino

I always regarded Ms. Barrino as lovely, but these photo's take her to another level. They are fabulous. She looks absolutely beautiful. The red dress looks sexy and sophisticated on her. Fantasia God has given you a gift...don't worry on the haters let them push you higher. The Lord promises to "set a table for you in the very prescence of your enemies." Keep looking fabulous and making beautiful music, give them something to talk about. I am so incredibly proud of you. To the owner of this site THANK YOU for posting the pictures, they are beautiful.

Props to Derek Blanks for capturing taking such great pictures. The photo of Tasia in the red is incredible. The red dress is perfect for her figure and smoothe dark skin.

Pam: Derek Blanks is SUCH a

Pam: Derek Blanks is SUCH a photoshop photographer!! I know all celeb and mag photo’s are touched up but all of his celeb’s don’t even look real or even like themselves specially his female client’s. They are photoshopped TO DEATH!! She looks great!! But i have to agree with you. Sometimes the ladies look like they went and did the breast stroke all up and thru the MAC boutique in Lennox mall!! The photo styling is already dramatic and a lot of make-up + photshopping can be a bit much. Tasia is my girl and she still looks good.

I've always found her

I've always found her extremely attractive. She looks fantastic in these pix.
