PICS & VIDEO: Fantasia Hits "Good Morning America", Talks Suicide Attempt & Performs "Bittersweet"

 

Fantasia's new album Back To Me hits shelves today.  And she did her first live tv apearance since her suicide attempt this morning on "Good Morning America."  She opened up to Robin Roberts about all the recent drama in her life.  She followed it with a performance of her single "Bittersweet". 

 

Details and a clip of the interview and her performance when you go inside...

Fantasia sat down with Robin Roberts and talked about her recent drug overdose and what she believes brought it on.  Here are some highlights from the interview.

I think I was just overloaded with everything, with carrying six years of so much.  I always take a licking and keep on ticking…it just became heavy for me to the point that I just wanted to be away from the noise.

"There's so much that people don't understand. They just see the glitz and the glamour, and they feel like life is so perfect, but we're human and we go through things.”

I think everybody feels like I tried to harm myself over a man, but you know I’ve been in a lot of bad relationships.  I think that had somewhat to do with it because it was so heavy, it was brand new information, I was already going through so much. But I think it was just six years of everything, of me holding all that stuff on the inside and not letting it out…I got very, very tired.

 

Here are pics of her arrival to and inside the "GMA" studio:

She actually looked very nice on tv in this uber fitted blue turtleneck dress and nude high heeled pumps with a chain braclet and brooch-style earrings.  To be fair, these pics didn't necessarily do her justice.

And here is the full interview and performance if you are interested.  Fantasia goes on to talk about how she felt when she woke up from her overdose induced sleep, the nurses that helped her pull through, and what's next for her.


Sigh.  All jokes aside, we're going to keep the prayer circle going for Fanny. She's entirely too talented for the foolery she keeps getting caught up in...

It's funny how people have

It's funny how people have all the answers for other people problems or issues. All the time and energy you put into giving advice to others..imagine how AWESOME your life would be if you put that same time and energy into yourself. Live life from your heart instead of your head...all that blah blah blah that's going on in your head will eventually cease and you'll have more peace!! Often times the faults and failures that you see in others are just a reflection of yourself....that's why you can see them so clearly!! Keep your head up Fantasia...keep making that soulful music. This too shall pass!! www.seslichatevi.org

Damn, she almost brought me

Damn, she almost brought me to tears with that song. Seriously, we need to hold unto our black talents in every arena of entertaiment and keep them in our prayers. To much negative spirits out there seem aimed and ready to take them out. Sadly, leaving us with what they want us to believe is talent. I would pay to sit through a Fantasia concert before I drop a sinlge penny on the half naked, no talent, drama loving folks beign shoved down my throat by our media.

Life is hard and it’s so

Life is hard and it’s so important to be encouraging. The fact is that God is here and will help anyone who is willing to get through whatever it is that they are going through. The truth is that no one is perfect that’s why we need God and his directions of corrections. We sin we make mistakes but its only one who can judge.

I watched her behind the

I watched her behind the music, and while i feel for a lot of things she says she has been through, once someone lies it discredits everything else they say and you wonder if they are making excuses for bad behavior, she said she didnt know antwan at first but then got busted with his name tatted on her so she changed it to i know him but we just cool, then the wife says she is the reason for the break up now fanny says ok ok i do know him we are together but he said he wasnt married and with his wife, which is it, why does she only admitt shit when she gets busted , so now im like ok did you really get raped or was you out there tricking and when people started calling you a whore did you come up with a fake rape like you came up with the fake suicide,when she was missing the color purple shows she said it was because of some mysterious tumors on her throat , yet she magically had a show and new album in the works, Im seeing a pattern of lying and creating these huge traumatic events whenever your backed into a corner. hmmm looking kinda suspect to me fanny mae. regardless of all this, im praying for you to get it together because your voice is just a gift and the media isnt saying a damn thing about alecia keys ass and she is knocked up. you deserve a chance to get your life together and all the fans should care about in reality is the music, you dont owe us your life story and if lindsy lohan kim kardashian and paris hilton can get even more famous for their fuck ups with not even a fraction of your talent then you damn sure deserve our patients , just stop lying and take cae of that beautiful daughter of yours

wow...is there anyone without sin, something you've done you wish you hadn't, some bad mistakes and things you hope NEVER get out. if you fit in that, then stop judging. and yes shes in the public eye and shes fair game but be careful how you throw rocks. i also just hate how we go soooo hard. we talk about how she looks and you know you aint that fly....STOP IT NEGROES!!! STOP IT! We have all the answers and werent there...puhlease! truth is we are looking at these ppl as idols when we should judge them according to talent and move on. sstop making these individuals "friends in your head" and then when they act the fool supposedly you wont be all cynical, judgemental and upset...chill out and pray for her like you would want someone to do for you if it were you....AND IT HAS BEEN IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. leave my offering at your local church.

Sorry people for those who

Sorry people for those who believe she’s not lying…FANNY IS LYING… her body language and what she said gave it away…no person who truly want to committ suicide would be defensive to say ” YOU CAN’T ACCIDENTALLY TAKE A WHOLE BOTTLE OF PILLS” what Fanny said was done out of GUILT b/c she’s trying to convince the masses that what she tried to do was legimate when in actuality it wasn’t… See what people fail to realize while they listen to the devil persuade them to do wrong is that the truth will always be shown eventually, b/c GOD is greater than all including the devil…. Also, Fanny’s body language and facial expressions all read “gosh, I hope poeple don’t realize this is a hoax on my part” and no true suicidal person would be able to function so quickly b/c the darkness a suicidal person lives in takes longer than 2 wks to bounce back, that form of darkness is no joke… Fanny is playing with fire and will surely get burnt in the end… be sad for her daughter
Think People's picture

You are absolutely right! I

You are absolutely right! I know someone who committed suicide and they have these things planned out in their mind for years, their life is very dark, their mind state is so out there that they would not be able to bounce back as quickly as Fantasia did. Also people who are suicidal know that a bottle of asprin wont kill them. Fantasia is playing around with this, hoping she will get sympathy from others, and they will go out and buy her album. She is faking trying to get attention, she has to be embarassed having to discuss it. She needs to realize this suicide story is going to follow her, her whole career, and even after she's gone.

I agree. I think she is playing with fire here. It happened before the release of her album, she recovered in two weeks and now she is doing publicity rounds on tv. Come on this was planned...And Fantasia while I like your music that dress is not working. When it is so tight that I can see your belly bottom it is no longer a cute look.

The 1st pic is awful. That

The 1st pic is awful. That girl really needs 2 know how 2 control that mug of hers. Ugh. That dress is pretty when it's NOT in the daylight. Inside, it's better 'cause it doesn't look so sheer. The many, many, many tattoos on the legs (etc...) makes it hard for ANY woman 2 look classy. Damn. And she needs 2 address this right away 'cause people R not feeling sorry 4 her, instead most people think that she's capitalizing on her "incident" 4 publicity (which she is). She needs 2 explain that, "life goes on. Everything was already on schedule, and she's going to be stronger than this....blah blah blah." People don't care n they're making fun of her, so that's not a good look especially when she's losing a lot of fans. She may not sell well AT ALL! W/ that being said, this girl needs to stay in our prayers (for those of us who pray). SMDH.

Fanny SAID she knew he was

Fanny SAID she knew he was married, but according to Antwaun he was seperated. Ive seen some of Fantasias reality show to have seen she has out spoken, older women in her life like her grandmother and aunts. Not only did she have a pastor sort of ish grandmother, Fantasia has a mother who sing gospel and KNOW that being with a MARRIED MAN is wrong. Fantasia is indeed a GROWN WOMAN, she may need a manger of her career, but SHE is the manager of HER LIFE. NOBODY forced FANNY to do ANYTHING SHE DIDNT WANT TO DO. Thats is in reference to her family under her roof, ANTWAUN, MONEY, her EDUCATION, damn it everything. Everybody NOW want to push the blame off to someone else or use a scapegoat, and its really pathetic. OWN IT, dont place the blame on the men you dealt with before, Mrs. Cook, YOUR HOUSE SITUATION, not even the media. Compassion, ah, no. Everyone sin. HELL, we lie, and we know its wrong, but we do it anyway. WE to suffer the CONSEQUENCES of that lie. Now, YOU SUCKED, FLAUNTED HIM AROUND, EVEN BOAST TO ANTWAUNS WIFE of the affair, but, now you dont want to deal with the backlash from YOUR FANS, and Mrs. Cooks lawsuit. Nope, no compassion. I however do have compassion for your child had something would of happened to you"wanting out". Fantasia, go hug yourself girl, AND YOUR CHILD, SHE NEED "YOU" MORE THAN ANYTHING OR ANYBODY.

I'm happy that she didnt end her life over all the issues that she was facing. We have to realize the choices that we make are not going to be easy and that we shouldn't be so quick to judge anyone.

This is a sad and unfortunate

This is a sad and unfortunate situation. Yet another example of a woman that lives her life to be loved and accepted by a man that's no good. Fantasia is talented and it's too bad that she has nobody around her to honestly guide her through her life as a celebrity. Fantasia needs a new manager, stylist, publicist, and whatever else her team consists of because these people are taking her money and leading her astray. People are cruel and it probably has been a lot to bear but Fantasia has a child and that should have been her strength to get through this mess. Also this whole situation looks real questionable, because why did this come about right in time for the release of her cd and to be recorded for the upcoming season of her reality show?
