MJ's Big Blog grabbed a screencap of an Instagram post by Fantasia where she slams gay marriage (see left). After saying that gay marriage is something the bible says we shouldn't be doing, many of her fans were angered. She released a statement later saying:
"Comments made by Ms. Barrino through her Intragram account were recently taken far out of context, and the purpose of this release is to set the record straight. Ms. Barrino is not now, nor has she ever been an opponent of the LGBT community. She has supported and performed at numerous events that are sponsored by the LGBT community. Whether it’s through a live performance or placement on social media, Ms. Barrino uses every opportunity to reach out and connect with her fans, all of her fans."
It's not out of the realm of possibilites that Fantasia misspoke. She did just learn to read a few years ago and the post is poorly written, so it's not as if she's a master of the English language. We're sure gay men made up a large portion of her fan base, because no one loves a train wreck more than the gays.
What do you think?
After Wendy Williams talked about Fantasia's upcoming movie role as Mahalia Jackson and her pregnancy on her show, Fantasia called in to set the record straight. But all she did was dodge questions about whether she's carrying the baby of a married man. Last time Fantasia was pregnant by Antwaun, it didn't end well, so we'll see what happens if she's indeed pregnant by Antwaun again.

Newly engaged Paul McDonald has more than just his fiancee Nikki Reed to celebrate; he's also the winner of 4 Whatevia Awards. The Whatevia Awards take place every year on the Vote for the Worst website to honor and award the entertaining moments that the site's viewers loved but America hated.
McDonald took home the award for Favorite VFTW Performer, as well as an award for his rose suits in the Favorite VFTW Wardobe Choice category. He was also part of the group that won Best Karaoke Performance by a Duo or Group for "So What" and won his fourth award for outlasting Pia Toscano and causing outrage among American Idol fans. When asked what winning 4 Whatevia Awards meant to him, Paul gave an inspiring acceptance speech that started with, "How y'all doin' this evening?" and then transitioned into incoherent rambling.
Casey Abrams nearly deficated on himself after winning the Favorite Performance by a Lead Karaoke Singer for "Smells Like Teen Spirit," not because he was excited, but because he has ulcerative colitis. Ulcerative colitis is a type of inflamatory bowel disease that affects the large intestine and rectum. The disease affects 50 of every 10,000 people. To celebrate, Abrams and recent girlfriend Haley Reinhart spent 10 minutes growling into a microphone on the stage, causing host Dave Della Terza to give them a standing ovation. "I loved that shit," Della Terza said in a post-show press conference
Other winners included Fantasia's "Collard Greens and Cornbread" in the Favorite American Idol Alumni Train Wreck Song Release category and Taylor Hicks's performance with Steven Colbert in the Favorite American Idol Alumni Moment of the Year.
The return of the Constantine Maroulis Lifetime Acheievement Award of Suck went to overall failure Carly Smithson for losing yet another record deal and making almost no money while perfoming at Idol events. When asked for comment, Smithson rasied her middle finger and started to cry. Smithson's biggest fan, Richard Rushfield, was seen rocking back and forth and muttering to himself shortly after the awards ceremony eneded.
After finding out that she did not win any awards, Haley Reinhart smoked a bowl and said, "Well, that's the breaks, kid. At least I can go back to my job at Hooters. Anyone got any Cheetos?" Two-time nominee Rachel Zevita was spotted at the Naima Adedapo after party asking how she could've lost after she wore a cape on stage. Adedapo lamented, saying. "I know, girl. I screamed 'Boom fire!' and danced like I was having a seizure. I guess American Idol really is biased toward guys."

Media Take Out is reporting that Fantasia Barrino is pregnant with her second child. The father is apparently Antwaun Cook, the man who became national news when Antwaun's wife accused Fanny of being a homewrecker. This is at least the second baby that the couple has tried to have - Fantasia got an abortion last time. Well, at least this will provide material for another song like "Baby Mama."
