When Fantasia finally won a Grammy after being nominated 11 times, you would think she would be bounding up to the stage while her boyfriend/affair guy looked on smiling and counting dollar signs in his head. But no. Fantasia stayed at home and explained why to BET.
"I'm going to be very honest with you. You know I wasn't at the Grammys last night. I'm kind of going through my own little thing. ... Last night they were honoring someone who is my idol, Aretha Franklin, and there is no way I could have sat there and not got the happy feet and wanting to jump on the mic because she is my favorite so I felt like, you know, at the end of the day I should have been on that stage so, I kind of did my own little thing last night."
There are a million singers who would have loved to be in that position. Think about how many incredible singers were not involved in that tribute and Fantasia gets upset enough about it that she stays at home? Move on. Go to the Awards, pick up your Grammy and thank Aretha in your winner speech. That would have been the great thing to do. Now everyone will treat her like a whiner and will make sure not to invite her.
