Fantasia STYLES IT UP For The May 2013 Issue Of UPSCALE Magazine, Talks Having ZERO Regrets About Sharing Her Life's Drama

Fantasia is looking fab for the May 2013 issue of UPSCALE.  Check out her cover look inside, and whay she has no regrets about being so open about her life...

Fantasia's got a new album out tomorrow, Side Effects of You, a new look, and a fresh and healthy perspective on life these days.  But even though she let us see all the drama she went through in her past that made folks question her parental and emotional stability, the "Without Me" singer doesn't regret a thing.

A few excerpts from her brand new UPSCALE cover story:

On being open and honest: "Everything that I've talked about and put out there, it's helped someone. It might not have helped the person who had something smart to say or had a joke or whatever, but there's 10 other people that's inspired by my story. So I wouldn't change anything. I'm just going to continue to be that person that is open and honest because that's me, that's Fantasia."

On loving herself: "The first thing I want is peace, peace of mind. Being able to be comfortable in my own skin, being able to say 'this is what I want to do' instead of trying to please everybody else."

On people relating to her: "The things that I go through, people go through everyday. I've had some rough times and some moments that I wouldn't say I'm very proud of, but I can say that for me, I'm glad that I was able to let it out. I believe that's when we become not real, that's when we become fake—when we try to make things look like it's just so perfect."

Check out her newest interview with OMG! Insider about how she lost a lot of friends, family & money due to the suicide attempt, controversial relationships and other drama in her life, but says she's not worried about any of it:


OK Fanny!

Tasia is looking great. I

Tasia is looking great. I don't agree with all of her moves, but I think she is so talented. No autotune or engineering needed there. I think people forget she is like barely 26 and we all do dumb shit in our 20's. She just needs the right team behind her.

I don't even understand why

I don't even understand why mags even bother doing photo shoots if they are just going to photoshop the celeb from head to toe. Now their even going inside the mouth & changing the teeth. They even removed her tats. All they really need is a model that is the same skin color & simular shape. Then all they would have to do is change out the face.

Love me some Tasia! No one is

Love me some Tasia! No one is perfect, and it takes a real woman to be open about the dumb ass mistakes they made...

OMG!!! If I hear another "why

OMG!!! If I hear another "why are they tearing her down" whine, I'm going to scream. Her "personal" life is not "personal" because SHE made it very public by showing it on that mess of a reality show of hers. Not to mention, her baby daddy's divorce is public record. No one is "tearing her down". People are merely stating their opinions on a celebrity gossip blog. Tearing someone down is carrying on a humiliating, public smear campaign. No one boycotting her music or walking around with picket signs outside her concerts. Yeah she made mistakes but we are not going to award her for messing up either.

...and OMG like you said this

...and OMG like you said this is a blog and we are ALL stating our opinons. We're not going to agree. I feel like people are tearing her down, you don't. Ummmmmmmm ok??? Like you said we ALL have opinions.

looking good mama. please

looking good mama. please don't go back to the 'hood look.

Fantasia is one of the few

Fantasia is one of the few select singers around blessed with a level of talent not easily comprehended, hence why it seems easier for people to tear her down rather than build her up. She has made mistakes much like any other female but hers is clearly more enhanced due to her public status, which I guess comes with the territory. Im just glad she's using her God given talent to prove what most know but continue to deny: SHE'S IN A LEAGUE OF HER OWN!!

Its a shame how much we love

Its a shame how much we love to tear each other down. On AI last week & in several recent-appearances, Fannie has been looking GREAT! Somebody @ Upscale fell asleep at the wheel cuz this picture is distorted & odd. If I hear a few snippets from her new cd I'll download some tracks. Fannie can actually SING, and her personal biz is just that-personal. She's made mistakes--but don't we all? MANY women do just what she did--get 'caught-up' & dickmitized...but why is it that only the WOMEN are ridiculed? What about these sloring-aZZ men? Why is Nikki Minaj's bleachy-blonde-bobblehead azz getting so much play? Why is Lil Wayne's disgruntled-roach-syrupy-a$$ still going platinum--yet everyone always disses Fantasia? SMH. We. must. do. better.

Fantasia looked fantastic

Fantasia looked fantastic last week on American Idol. This Upscale mag cover photo is not the best though; make-up isn't right and the camera angle is just not flattering. I'm proud of Fantasia though for getting herself together and forging ahead with her artistry.

Fantasia needs a life coach,

Fantasia needs a life coach, prayer, and lots of direction. Every time she talks about "getting her life together" and starting over, she makes more bad decisions. She has had so many chances and opportunities. She has a great voice but if she had better management and better representation, her career would be much further along. Right now, she's semi-relevant not because of her music but because of her drama. Just a hot diggity dog mess! Her stage presence alone is gross. Sweating, screaming, stomping around barefoot. I know that's part of her show but it's not ladylike at all and that's part of her problem. I want to root for her but it's just so damned hard.

and this magazine cover

and this magazine cover SUCKS!

Fantasia please! aint nobody

Fantasia please! aint nobody chkn for her, her music, or her sob story! she aint inspiring no damn body! we have enough examples of low budget ratchet hood ass black women & we dont need anymore. what angers me most is that she was blessed w so much and acts a fkn donkey!

@luvlanda ~ Thanks. I'm

@luvlanda ~ Thanks. I'm just so sick of Fanny and her BS. Unless it's singing, she should keep her mouth shut and her legs closed to married men.
