We got news that American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino interviewed with VH1′s Behind the Music today about her recent circle of events in her life. Subsequently, today Fantasia’s long awaited album hit the stores.
Here’s the interview from VH1:
Her explaination of why she overdosed and attempted suicide.
“I didn’t have any fight in me. I didn’t care about anything. I just wanted out. At that moment, I wanted out. I wanted it to be over with – all of it, all of that $@%*”.
“I just sat in the closet and looked at the mirror and took all the pills in the bottle. I wanted to go to sleep and just be at peace. I knew exactly what I was doing. You can’t accidentally take a whole bottle of pills.”
“I was tired of people doing me wrong, constantly, over and over again, dealing with my family – my father, dealing with men and their @#$#% – I was tired. My head was hurting me. I was over it.”
And the affair with Antwaun Cook, (in her words):
“When I met him, he was separated … wasn’t living in his home. He didn’t want to be back with his wife – that is what I was told, I remember waking up in the hospital [and thinking], ‘It didn’t work, I’m still here in this hellhole. Still here with all this drama going on.’ “
How she made it back up again:
“My nurse Melanie was a blessing into my life because she didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear. She told me what I needed to hear. And she looked at me and said, ‘You gotta get up, and you’ve gotta get out of here, ’cause you haven’t fulfilled your destiny.’ ”
“I realized how people end up in the grave. Because that one moment [snaps her fingers] of just breaking or feeling like I can’t, I can’t go on, it’s too heavy. That was somewhere I don’t ever want to go again.”
Well, I guess she’s “Back to Me” and making the money now that all of that is out in the open.
