Fantasia recently told the NY Post that she was never illiterate:
I dropped out of school in the ninth grade, and when I said I had trouble reading, they took it that I couldn’t read at all,” she says. “I knew the basics, but some words that were unfamiliar, I couldn’t figure them out.” However, the “brand-new” Fantasia wants the world to know this: “I’m da bomb now, babe!”
