Fantasia continued her PR tour of talking about her suicide attempt to get more press for her upcoming album Back to Me.
She stopped by Good Morning America and told Robin Roberts, "I think I was just overloaded with everything, with carrying six years of so much. I always take a licking and keep on ticking...it just became heavy for me to the point that I just wanted to be away from the noise ...
There's so much that people don't understand. They just see the glitz and the glamour, and they feel like life is so perfect, but we're human and we go through things."
She also claims her relationship with married Antwaun Cook wasn’t the reason she overdosed. "I think everybody feels like I tried to harm myself over a man, but you know I've been in a lot of bad relationships," she said. "I think that had somewhat to do with it because it was so heavy, it was brand new information, I was already going through so much. But I think it was just six years of everything, of me holding all that stuff on the inside and not letting it out...I got very, very tired."
She also said once she was hospitalized, "I figured out, 'Oh god, this is going to be more drama,'" she said. "I know all these nurses they know me, they probably voted for me."
Kind of odd that she was thinking about whether or not people recognized her at a time like that. But apparently she’s already cured. Fantasia said, "I'm just going to go back to that young lady I was on the Idol that people fell in love with. I'm back to me."
That’s impossible! Her suicide attempt just happened, and she’s already pretending she’s fine! Check out the interview below.
