Aretha Franklin To Fantasia’s Boycott: In This Business, You Don’t Always Get What You Want…

Fantasia and Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin has decided to respond to Fantasia’s GRAMMY boycott:

“I was sorry to hear that Fantasia was upset because she did not get the opportunity to participate in my GRAMMY Tribute this year. I recall that in the past, Fantasia participated in both my MusicCares Person of the Year Tribute and my United Negro College Fund Tribute. Fantasia is still young in the business and although we all love and appreciate her she must understand that in this business of show business she will not always get to participate in everything she would like to participate in. I’m sure it was not an intentional omission. I will see Fantasia over the summer here in Detroit.”

SMH… The same night Fantasia boycotts the GRAMMYs is the same night she wins her first GRAMMY for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.

      NICE NEWS !
      My friend Vanessa, a 25 yrs lady, has announced her wedding with a m’illionaire young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC. It’s amazing, she said she just posted her profile on a m’illionaire d’ating s’ite called ———-RichMatchmaker. ℃○M——– – and received his chat invitations a few days later. Then, everything went so well that I can’t believe it’s true! Every love story will unfold on it’s own..——-
      trying to figure out what her situation with Antwan has to do with this story?

      Half the chicken heads talking about, probably done screwed or in love with someone elses man, and got the nerve to talk. Damn hood rats.

      spaghetti straps are not made for big breasts

  • NotHome

    What she needs to boycott is sleeping with someone else’s husband.

    • Royal Chocolate

      …so true. She needs to pick up some skills on being tactful and stop acting so “country cornbread”.

    • angie

      Amen! and Amen!

    • CAN AM

    Fantasia tried to play hardball. Her management told the organizers that if she wasn’t included in the tribute to Aretha, she wasn’t going to show up. They said, “Ok, don’t come”. It was an idiotic move, made by an “artist” who is not on the level where she can make threats like that and have the outcome she wants.

    Her loss. That catterwalling and dusty, bare-feet stomping that she considers performing actually WON, and her dumb butt was at home. All because she thinks waaay to much of herself. Well, what do you expect from a person like her?

    I don’t think she made the right move boycotting the awards but she’s the one who has to live with it. If she feels justified in her decision then so be it. She has the grammy regardless of whether she was there or not and maybe that’s all that matters to her.

  • thats crazzy crazzy

    Gurl you done pissed off Oprah and got away with it! Now hang yourself with the white folks you will be back in the pjs singing gospel! U ain’t cute or nothing!

  • if anything be noble

    In this business?? In this world. Fantasia—- GIT on the stage. Smh

  • Victor Vargus

    She is an awful singer an ought to be ashamed of herself for trying to spoil the tribute.

  • Jay the Real One

    Drug overdose, abortions, extreme weight gain…seriously, whatever this is, I don’t want no parts of it.

  • really?

    ms. retha is right on! it sounds like she’s going to grant tasia some knowledge over the summer b4 her ignant butt winds up back in north cakalakee sing on street corners with her family.

  • WithAllHonesty

    What sense does it make to not show up for an award show to accept your own Grammy nomination or AWARD in this case just because you can’t participate in the tribute. Now you get no shine for your award win and no tribute performance. Horrible move!


    There were a lot of other people that weren’t included that could have been just as upset, i.e. Patti LaBelle & Gladys Knight. I would have much rather seen them throw down in a tribute along with Yolanda Adams & Jennifer Hudson than Fantasia. Sorry Fan – get a grip.
