During her Good Morning America appearance on Tuesday, Fantasia Barrino cleared the air about her recent suicide attempt:
Saying you’re proud of someone you’ve never met is kind of weird, but I am definitely proud of Fantasia. It’s only been two weeks since her suicide attempt, yet she’s so honest and upfront about everything, you’d think she’s had years of counseling to come to terms with it.
Actually, she’s so composed during this interview, you’d think she was offering the life coaching services she herself is receiving.
During the interview, Fantasia talks candidly about everything from the negative reactions she received during American Idol for being a single mother with no high school diploma, to finding herself in a place where no one had her back, she was taking care of her family by herself, being on the brink of losing her career, and holding it all in for six years.
Especially poignant was her mention of everyone thinking she’s so strong (*coughcough*).
Give it a watch – it’s definitely worth it.
