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.
Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy
Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.
If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage. So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.
Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.
“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”
“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”
To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.
“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”
