Fantasia has faced more than her fair share of media scrutiny.
Within the last few years she’s been ridiculed about dating a married man, having his child, allegedly attempting suicide and more recently she’s been under fire for “homophobic” comments on social networking and sparking a feud with Ebony magazine. Needless to say, the American Idol winner has had a rough time in the public eye. However, Tasia told HipHollywood that, “I don’t even care. I’m living life for me now. I’ve found such a peace, I’m at peace with myself. I’m happy with who I am.”
HH was exclusively inside the studio as Fantasia held a private listening session for her new album Side Effects Of Me. The Grammy-winner previewed several tracks from the upcoming project and gave some insight on the process of making the album. Throughout everything she’s encountered, Fanny testified that she still finds solace in her music. “My music is my therapy…I had to put it all in the album. There was no other place I could put it.”
Side Effects Of Me, executively produced by Harmony Samuels, is in stores April 23rd. In the meantime, check out our full interview with Fantasia, plus snippets from the album, below.
