Fantasia Barrino Clarifies Her Week-Long Instagram Rant

Fantasia Barrino talks to Starpulse, in hopefully the last chapter of her recent Instagram kerfuffle:

FantasiaFirst 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. you doin'?!

Wondering what she's been up to aside from ranting on social media? Her latest single, "Lose to Win", which samples The Commodores' "Night Shift", AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Give her a break! Peruse her Twitter and you'll see she has a lot of trouble articulating. I'm not a fan at all, but a little research shows that she is, in fact, a big supporter of the LGBT community.

  3. How many times does she have to clarify her support for the LGBT community? First through her PR person, then she released a personal statement, now in an interview...what else do you want her to do?

    This isn't like Azealia Banks who blatantly used homophobic language, this was a clumsily worded rant by someone who spent most of her life being illiterate.

    As for Lose To Win, she can do better.
