Last night, Fantasia called into BET’s 106 & Park to chat with hosts Terrance and Rocsi about winning her first Grammy. During the conversation, the R&B singer revealed that the rumors revolving around the reason she did not attend the show was in fact due to her omission from the Aretha Franklin tribute.
Here’s what Fantasia had to say:
“I’m going to be very honest with you. You know I wasn’t at the Grammys last night, I’m kind of going through my own little thing…last night they were honoring someone who is my idol, Aretha Franklin, and there is no way I could have sat there and not got the happy feet and wanting to jump on the mic because she is my favorite so I felt like, you know, at the end of the day I should have been on that stage so, I kind of did my own little thing last night.”
Although I would have loved to see Fantasia on the Grammy stage, she has already performed several tributes to Franklin at different events. And let’s not forget people, the girl won her first Grammy! She’ll be aiight.
