Fantasia has a new album coming out tomorrow. She is also going to be on Behind The Music airing tomorrow night. In the interview she says "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 s**t."
"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."
She says when she woke up in the hospital she still was not happy then her nurse told Fantasia she still had not fulfilled her destiny and that made Fantasia all better.
It was fortunate for Fantasia that her manager discovered her within 10 minutes of Fantasia taking all the pills after she texted him she did take them all. The timing of all of this is suspect but I think it was definitely a cry for help. I know it is convenient that she has a new album coming out and that during this whole time she had a film crew following her for her reality show, but you don't take a bottle of sleeping pills without understanding the consequences. I do think the whole affair thing and the possibility of being sued by the wife is hard and the pressure of being talked about for something other than your music is probably rough so I can see her doing it. I do know that because of all this she is going to have much bigger record sales than she would have otherwise, but as cynical as I am I think it was a genuine suicide attempt or at least a very loud cry for help.
