'World Is Gone Mad,' Says Fantasia Barrino About Gay Nups, Weed


Fantasia Barrino, the singer made famous by winning the third season of American Idol, took to Instagram to tell the world that she is completely confused as to why marriage equality and weed are legal in some places yet she's still being "judged".

Judged by whom? An invisible jury? Ghosts of American Idol contestants past? Some omniscient being that goes like only one name? Cher?! Who knows?! But Fantasia is certain she's being judged and she doesn't like it at all. She thinks that judgmental shade should be thrown at the people legally getting married and legally smoking dope.

Yes, life is full of mysteries and Instagram is full of deep thoughts; just not on Fantasia Barrino's feed.

  2. Honey the world was a mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world long before the gays got married. You are just seeing how crazy people are like the anti-gay Christians who are crazy now that their death grip on people is being broken and they can not control fools to give them money for nothing.

  3. She's a HORRIBLE person to be around. Horrible, diva antics, rude, and completely unprofessional in every way. I had one experience working with her and her team two years ago, and it was truly miserable and as is she. No wonder NO ONE is willing to hire her.

  4. I hate when bigots like her who have clearly not been TRULY judged then throw the people who HAVE BEEN judged all theirs lives under the bus.

  5. We need to stop pandering to religious bigots. They are against us being treated as equals in the government we pay into, but we brush it off simply because they quote the Bible. Fantasia knows exactly what she did with what she posted, and forget about the many many gay people who helped her get where she is. This is my definition of rotten.

  6. whats pathetic about her is that the ONE demographic who was least responsible for judging her, most loyal to her, most on her side, and most supportive of her was by far gay people. THIS is her thanks to them.
    I hope any gay person with an ounce of integrity, self respect, and conviction picks better artists to support. How do you support someone's livelihood who has all interest in not supporting yours?

  7. She cheated on a man, had an affair, had a child out of wedlock, was on drugs, and attacked a man.....

    you want to compare that to two same sex loving, TAX PAYING, consenting adults in a beautiful relationship?
    THAT'S even more offensive that she would try to pin us against all her vices. What? we're supposed to feel good about that and thank her for it?
    No thanks. I don't APOLOGIZE for being gay. Nor being madly in love with a gay man. That's not a vice, and never was.

  8. If gay people judged her for her choice of clothing (basically, showing all her goods all the time) or her past, or the many men she's been with out od be called hypocrites, hypocrites, hypocrites. but she does it, and her fanboys try to defend her.
    She's a grade A judgmental bigot and her comments proved it. Plain and simple. I'm gay, I'm not an idiot.

  9. J.P,
    My goof friend also had a sour experience with her. He works in talent relations for a radio station in Boston and Fantasia came in one day for an interview. He was actually a big fan, and complimented her while being very accommodating. She was cold with him and very dismissive. He is gay, and you don't need sharp gaydar to tell. So he found it all the more confusing that after he told her how wonderful her voice is and how he wishes her great things for her future she she nodded her head like she didn't want to be bothered and started loudly singing gospel songs. He said it was one of the most odd interactions he's had in all the time he worked on that station. Now after this incident, part of me thinks it makes sense. She's a closeted bigot who accidentally slipped up. Gay people really ought to be caring about those who care about them. And not being so worshippy to anyone with a microphone in front of their face.

  10. Her response to this was:
    "...I use social media to connect with my fans, all my fans, and I have many gay fans too."

    WTF?! seriously. WTF?!
    Shame on all those gay fans then. Maybe those gay fans of yours should become a fan of themselves first before blindly worshipping a stranger. Respect for self is the most important respect, gay peeps sometimes forget that.

  11. Notice the few defending her are using her Bible to excuse her commentary. She came up from the Church? She is coming from a Biblical place? Bigotry is bigotry, and hiding behind faith for judge loving gay couples and gay individuals is no excuse. If you are entitled to use your Bible to make a reference that involves gay people, gay people are entitled to react and respond to it. It's a two way street, and religion does not rule the road.

  12. If it makes you feel better Fantasia, most people are not judging you. MOST people have never heard of you.

  13. You people(those who have trouble comprehending) seem VERY dumb ....she is not GAY bashing just not correctly expressing. You all are doing exactly what she is talking about!!! NO SIN is greater than another...smh

    Posted by: jeese | Dec 31, 2012 10:33:43 PM

  14. JEESE and other fanbots,
    Don't talk about our reading comprehension when you (nor she) can string a sentence together. The reading comprehension of a chemically imbalanced person who is 4 years old could tell you exactly what she meant with her original quote. No one said it was "gay bashing" (but that you used that phrase, suggesting we used it, perfectly proves you're not even gay) but it was implicitly suggested in her quote that being gay is a deterrent. There is no spinning that, dancing around that, or erasing that. It's right there in that quote. That you can't recognize it isn't our problem.

  15. @ Jeese
    And that right there is the heart of the issue here, and one you can't seem to grasp. Being gay for those of us who are comfortable in our skin isn't a sin. Your Bible doesn't dictate what is a sin.

    Gay people don't seem themselves as sinful when they are lovingly coupled up. And won't take lightly to it being suggested they are, which you just did subtly with your own post. You can take cover under a Bible and start calling things since, but then don't run for cover when people start responding.

  16. I think too often we're just flippant and careless about ignorance people say about gays. This is one example. There was no reason for her to drag gay marriage and all the struggling gay families already trying to survive in this economy in some personal rant about her life. None. Not a one. That she chose to drag gay people in any manner in this hissy fit she's throwing means she needs to be held accountable for her words. Just like an adult. This rant would have been perfectly harmless and easily made her point with out the mention of gay marriage and those wonderful couples who partake in them. She chose to not do that, and for that, she does have things to answer for.
    Although I really won't be listening. This girl was over in 2004. She's just not relevant.

  17. In 1991 the Golden Girls devoted a very gay friendly episode to gay marriage, and displayed it in a positive light. All the characters were supportive, and all the terrific actresses expressed support for the episode years later.

    In 2013, we're having to deal with a national debate about why we should allow gay people equality.

    Have we really moved forward? sure. But some days it feels insane that we even still need to have this debate- in 2013. In a time when LGBT contribute so much to society and economy.

  18. I don't know if I have even heard her voice, so I cannot comment on her talent or lack of, but at first blush, the comments do not appear to be very nice. If she wishes to be a better bigot, effective communication will surely help her efforts. Actually, given the rambling nature of her post, it appears as if she herself were high on marijuana while composing this post.

  19. Same chick who has a WIKI page detailing her affairs, out of wedlock births and suicide attempt? Just checking...I like knowing who is high and mighty.
