Fantasia, The Definition Of, Fantasia Billboard MagazineFantasia On How She Knew Her Husband Was ‘The One’

Fantasia is back and I’m super happy about it because I admire not only her music, but her strength.

Since American Idol, we’ve seen Fantasia flourish as a woman, mother, artist and now a wife. We’ve seen her ups and downs publicly with former boyfriend and father of her son Dallas, Antwaun Cook, but one thing we didn’t see is her break.

Tasia has always shown us what it’s like to fall and rise again better than ever. With her new album ‘The Definition Of’, it gives us every piece of her life and her comeback. Well, I guess it’s not safe to call it a comeback because she never left.

New Music: Fantasia — Sleeping With The One I Love

In promoting her new album ‘The Definition Of‘ Fantasia stopped by for a Billboard magazine feature to dish on a few things including how she new her husband was the one, her attempted suicide, the recent waves of police shooting and change.

On how she knew her husband Taylor was the one:
“I just knew [he was the one]. I was getting ready to go on the road, and he got on his knees and said, ‘Can I pray for you? I just want to cover for you down the road.’ In the time I’d been fasting from ­relationships, I asked God for someone to pray for me — ­someone that could cover me and my kids [Dallas, 4, and Zion, 14] and be the man of the house. That’s when I knew.”

On her attempted suicide:
“I was this Southern girl, green and gullible and eager to please,” she says about life after American Idol. And while her career initially flourished, bad decisions — both ­professional and personal — took their toll. The situation came to a head in the spring of 2010 during the divorce trial of her then-boyfriend, Antwaun Cook, with allegations and accusations of home-wrecking, pregnancy and sex tapes. The humiliating public scrutiny culminated on Aug. 9, 2010, when Fantasia attempted suicide by downing a bottle of aspirin. “I was a broken woman.”

On the recent police shootings:
“You can’t look over it like it’s not ­happening,” she says. “I’m a mother, I’m a sister to three brothers, and I have a stepson in college. I wouldn’t want to see anybody’s child gunned down, no matter what color or race.”

On it never being too late for change:
“Everything in life is a fight. Everybody wants this microwavable life, and it doesn’t work like that. I’m here to say, ‘See what I went through? Look at me now.’ “
