Well, it appears as if the third American Idol
winner cannot be held down. This past year on ONTD, we learned that Fantasia was sexually abused as a teen and was illiterate.
Now here's the good news. Fantasia has been learning to read so she can read contracts and be able to read to her daughter. She's even pursuing her GED!
Also, despite being beat out by Jennifer Hudson
for the role of Effie White in Dreamgirls
, we're going to get a chance to see Fantasia act in an autobiographical film airing on the Lifetime network. After the film, we can expect a new album which will include songwriting/production by Missy Elliott
(who also wrote Mario
's "Let Me Love You" and is currently on the charts with his song "So Sick"). The album will also include songs written by Fantasia and possibly some country and rock songs
I don't know about you, but I think it'll be interesting to hear Fantasia pull off a country song. Here is the article
that I got the info from, which includes a hilarious link
to a dance performance of "Baby Mama" and a song called "Janet Reno" by Anquette
, a long-forgotten hip-hop girl group. The dancers are stuffed with pillows so they look pregnant and they throw/dance with babies!...well, they throw dolls, not actual babies.
Also, has anyone heard any confirmation of the rumors that "Addicted" will be the next official single by Kelly Clarkson
? If she was going for another single, I was totally hoping for "Where is Your Heart?"
