Fantasia’s Pretty Generic This Time
Can you believe it’s already 12 years ago, when she won American Idol?! Even though Fantasia was born into a musical family, thus it seemed logical for her to follow in her parents footsteps, who had a band of their own, and her famous cousins, K-Ci and JoJo (Jodeci), she couldn’t find a way into the business on her own, which is why she entered American Idol in 2004 and won.
Her biopic, “Fantasia Barrino: Life Is Not A Fairytale”, shows her life long battle with low self-esteem. She declares American Idol as her turning point. As mentioned before we’re now 12 years later and Fantasia has done a lot of growing up. It’s not that surprising, that the lyrics to “No Time For It”, sound like she’s got the hang of saying “no” just fine. Her self-esteem seems to be in a good place, now, and she’s as focused as she’ll ever be.
