Fantasia Sets Her Anti-Gay Record Straight

gospel festival 090609

First of all, my words were taken out of context! After being personally attacked on my Instagram account, I was simply trying to respond and say we live in a world where things are becoming more acceptable…thank God! I was using gay marriage as an example of other matters by trying to say that people are becoming more accepting of gay marriage, of weed being legalized in some states etc. all as a comparison to the personal aspects of my life. However, my question really was ‘Why are people still judging me?’ It was not that I was trying to judge anyone. Anybody that knows anything about my history should know how I have been judged and talked about negatively from the first day that I hit the American Idol stage. However, I am not a judgmental person and never will be. I like to see people do what they enjoy and be with the person they enjoy being with. The LGBT community has been, and still are to date, my biggest supporters. Now…how you doin’?!”

Perennial hatee Fantasia Barrino clarifies, once again, statements she made about the correlation between gay marriage and the world going cray to Starpulse.

    Officially STFU, heifer!

    Like Fantasia needed to destroy anymore of her dismal career. She’s just another dyslexic uneducated bafoon that says how she really feels to just recant once she starts seeing the pink dollar disappear. Much like she will from the public eye.

    Who cares what she says? She’s an illiterate reality tv star with barely a one hit wonder

  • Cee

    She still has more money than all of you who are downplaying her career. She doesn’t have to work a 9-5.

    @Cee: Aww bless. It’s cute you think money is relevant when calling someone on their dumbfuckery.

    Awww. Isn’t it cute.

    Her original comment was so incoherently worded that I halfway gave her the benefit of the doubt, and suggested that she MIGHT have been trying to get across exactly what she now says was her point. That doesn’t mean it’s true, but her latest statement does match up with my (not too confident) guess. It’s also somewhat less illiterate.

  • Red Meat

    I read her original comment, it was definitely full of grammar mistake, yet I knew what she was trying to say. I know ghetto talk.

    @DuMaurier: I’m inclined to agree with you.
    If you are queer, black and working class, you know who this woman is and where she is coming from. These are people that know damn well they have LGBT friends, coworkers and relatives and are struggling to get real about that but are lumbered with a lifetime of myths, lies and cultural taboos dressed up as “faith.” So I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt–like I do the Fantasias in my real life.
