The Scoop: 9 Things You Never Knew About Fantasia Barrino

We were thrilled to see VH1-alum Fantasia Barrino walking the hallways of the VH1 offices yesterday. She joined Carrie Keagan on VH1 Big Morning Buzz Live to discuss her brand new album, Side Effects of You, and her triumphant return to American Idol.

For what it’s worth, our fondest Fantasia memories come from her hit VH1 series, Fantasia For Real, but our biases aside, there’s no denying that she’s had an incredible career so far. From winning Idol and topping the Billboard charts to starring in The Color Purple on Broadway, this Grammy Award winning songstress never slows down.

We watched Fantasia come up, supported her through her ups and downs and feel like we’re Fantasia experts. But after we gave her The Scoop treatment, we realized there is so much more to Fantasia than she’s shared with the public. From what she’d be doing if she weren’t in the spotlight to what other competition show she thinks she could take on, find out the nine things you never knew about Fantasia Barrino!
