A week after apparently overdosing on a concoction of sleeping pills and aspirin, Fantasia Barrino released a statement to her fans thanking them for their love and support and saying she will soon be back to promoting her new album. The former “American Idol” winner’s publicist said the singer will soon be making television appearances on “Good Morning America,” “Live with Regis & Kelly,” “The Wendy Williams Show” and “The View.”
No doubt the singer will grilled on her apparent suicide attempt which is now being played out as a publicity stunt. Just days after her release from the hospital Fantasia was spotted with Antwaun Cook while cameras from her VH1 reality series “Fantasia For Real” taped the encounter.
In the midst of all this craziness there is some good news concerning the singer’s musical career. According to Billboard Fantasia’s latest single “Bittersweet” has jumped to #1 on the Urban Radio Airplay Chart and is presently #10 on the R&B chart.
Fantasia’s upcoming “Back to Me” CD is scheduled to hit stores on August 24th.
