hit the stage of the 2012 Essence Music Festival
last night looking well rested and energetic!
After reports that Tasia lost it onstage last week in Trinidad after her married baby daddy Antwuan Cook was boo’d up with that d-list reality show star, Barrino managed to keep her composure and wowed the crowed with an opening number that included the entire marching band from New Orleans’ O. Perry Walker high school!
Fantasia was dressed to impress in a tuxedo style white blazer paired with black sparkly pants but she quickly kicked off her shoes and got down with the crowd!
She was effin’ amazing!
Barefoot and over the barriers she went! ?Fantasia went straight into the crowd belting out a go-go version of ?3 In The Morning/Back To Reality,? and a fun, funky, upbeat medley of Prince-related covers.
She also covered Sheila E.?s ?Glamorous Life,? Morris Day and the Time?s
?The Bird,? and Vanity 6?s ?Nasty Girl.? Still, though, the greater part of the set drew from her ballads (?Even Angels,? ?Bittersweet?) not her wild side. Continue Reading…
June 30th was Fantasia Barrino’s 28th birthday and she celebrated in performing onstage in Trinidad where she broke down in front of a crowd of thousands.
Tears came to the singer?s eyes and flowed freely during the last few songs of set causing many audience members to respond with their own tears, cheers and shouts of ?We love you!?, in support of the singer who has had many personal struggles in her past including a suicide attempt two years ago.
This year, we lost Whitney Houston?They just wouldn?t leave her alone. They did not understand that she was only human. We lose family, friends, all for the love of money.
The only person who will never leave you is Jesus.
We’d already heard that Antwaun Cook had left Fantasia to go back to his wife, but since he was back & forth any way that probably wasn’t a big issue.
Tasia may have lost it onstage this time because now her married baby daddy is apparently dating a d-list reality show chick.
And to make matters worse… the d-lister is spreading pictures of her and her new boo online!

and her daughter Zion
hit the red carpet of the 2012 American Idol results show tonight (May 23, 2012).
[Correction: I received an email that says the girl in the photo is actually?Jamia Simone Nash who played the young Fantasia in the Lifetime TV movie Life Is Not A Fairy Tale.]
I don’t know if you caught it (cause I didn’t) but Tasia hit the stage again to sing alongside one of the finalists on the show that made her famous.
Joshua Ledet hit the stage to sing Elton John’s “Take Me To The Pilot” and when Fantasia joined him all you could hear was a collective gasp.
I think that shiny catsuit shocked the world! Hell… Joshua even looked a lil startled!
Check out Tasia (and her catsuit) performing “Fan Man” with Joshua Ledet… Continue Reading…
Things just get worse everyday for Fantasia Barrino
Tasia gave birth to her married boyfriend’s baby, a son they named Dallas Xavier Barrino, was born December 13, 2011.
The former American Idol premiered her post-baby body during CIAA and during that same weekend it was rumored that her son’s father had dumped her to go back to his wife.

Apparently Antwaun Cook is cheating on both his wife and his new baby mama because some other woman has leaked a photo of he and Tasia’s child!
When does it stop?!? 😯

was spotted getting her groove back in Charlotte, North Carolina during last weekend’s CIAA events.
As you know, Tasia gave birth to her married boyfriend’s baby almost two months ago and she premiered her post-baby body to the world for the first time in several interesting outfits.
Tasia and NeNe Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta were spotted together and Tasia rocked a crushed velvet sort of ensemble with a neckline that revealed her milk-filled mammaries.
Fantasia’s choice of gear may have been questionable, but perhaps she needs a pass this time, being that she’s clearly distraught over her baby daddy‘s decision to go home to his wife!
[Sidebar: I wonder if NeNe had the “close yo legs to married men” talk with Fantasia BEFORE or AFTER the baby was born?]

Fantasia Barrino was all smiles as she partied at The Blake in Charlotte, NC. last night (March 3, 2011).
It’s only been a little over 2 months since Tasia gave birth to her married boyfriend’s baby but she’s shed that baby fat and is back to work.
[Sidebar: Beyonce shed hers in like two WEEKS tho… (insert side-eye). But I digress.]
During yet another CIAA weekend afterparty, Tasia hit the stage as well as R. Kelly and Doug E. Fresh. Also spotted were DJ Drama, sexy actor Idris Elba, Clay Evans (Grand Hustle) and more…
