: Why can't we all just get along. According to one of MediaTakeOut.com faithful readers, Fantasia Barrino was talking sideways about fellow R&B singer Keyshia Cole.
Here's what happened - in the words of our faithful reader: I saw Fantasia on Saturday at the Oak Hollow Mall in North Carolina. She was really friendly and signed autographs for me and my little sister.
But something strange happened. After my sister got the autograph, [my sister's] told Fantasia that she and Keyshia Cole were [my sister's] favorite singers. Fantasia looked a little upset and just broke into song and sang a verse I've never heard before. I can't lie it sounded real good too.
Then Fantasia said, "Could Keyshia Cole do that." My sister was like "No." And Fantasia said, "She wishes she could do that."
To me it was kind of tacky for Fantasia to say that. But I like Fantasia better so - oh well.
Dang 'Tasia. Why do you gotta go telling the truth out in public....
Keyshia Cole doesn't sound as good as Fantasia. I heard Keyshia Cole sing in person and without the help of all that studio equipment she doesnt sound all that good. She struggles with staying on key and her voice cracks alot. Fantasia is way better!
Fantasia maybe a better singer that Keyshia Cole but Keyshia damn sure brings better music that Fantasia. I like fantasia don't get me wrong but I thing that she makes a better gospel singer than R & B.
No amount of make-up can make Fantasia look hot. And when was the last time you saw a woman singer who looked like she had bitter beer face?
You wanna be the big fish, you little guppy
Black man can't be no yuppie
You put on your suit and tie and your big clothes
You don't associate with the Negroes
Whether she can sing better or not has no bearing on the Keysia's appeal! I like Keysia better...sometimes Fanta's raspy voice gets on my nerves! I can listen to Keysia all day...can't say the same for Fantasia!
LOL again at beats! LOLOLOLOL - that's wrong!
She's only teling the truth. She's 100 times better than Keisha Cole but hey're both equally as ghetto...hmmm, actually I think Keisha got that one on her own...she's as ghetto as ghetto gets. Her family is embarrasin'!!
they're both good, but Keyshia's diva attitude is starting to turn a lot of people off..she better watch it. the same people that helped u make it to the top..you'll see them again when ur fallin to the bottom!
Well, my question is....DID THIS REALLY HAPPEN???
Or is this just another person sending MTO a MADE UP STORY and their DUMBAZZEZ post it without any SIGNIFICANT EVIDENCE that this in fact really happened! And i see people are STILL falling for it on here!!!! LOL
OMG I can't beleive what I've been reading....Now don't get me wrong I like Fantasia but I don't think she can sing better then Keisha...She can't hit those high notes without her voice cracking and going all raspy. But at the same time maybe she does sound better live.( hope thats what you all are refferring to) I read somebody's comment where they said they couldn't listen to Fantasia all day.....me either. Still its 2 different vocal types so probably not best to compare. I admire both women because they sing with their soul.
They have 2 different styles so how can anyone compare them. Fantasia "IS a WAAAAAAY BETTER SINGER with a personable and humble attitude". And Keyshia "IS a WAAAAAY BETTER GHETTO CRACKED VOICE, CAN'T CARRY A NOTE ARTIST with a f/u/c/k/e/d up attitude". -see my point =)
Who don't know that Keyshia Cole can't sing??
Fantasia would mop Keyshia Cole in a singing match anyday.
Fantashia has a God given talent that know one can take..but I agree, no one has to brag about it.
we all know fantasia got a voice. but the last time i check, ms. cole didn't even know who fantasia was a couple years ago while she was guest hostin on 106 and park... maybe ms. barrino never forgave her??? but who cares, it is what it is
Ummm Fantasia IS a better singer than Keisha "The Hoodrat" Cole.
Fantasia is a true talent with an amazing voice. Keisha sounds like a tone deaf stray cat someone set on fire.
LMMFAO....AHAHAHAHHAHAH Yu A Fool For Dat One...
They are both great vocialist...with different styles. Keyshia has just had more success because she is more "marketable" as far as the style and look. Fantashia has a bit of a backlash due to the fact that she was "found" on American Idol. I love and support both of them.
I like both of them...i didn't hear Fantasia's whole album. I like like Keyshia's album...she got some bangers on there..the voice lessons are paying off.
I still think MTO trying to get something started between them two. Cut it out.
It depends on what Fantasia is singing.
I like the way she sung Summertime by Gershwin...that's it!
I went out and bought Keyshia Cole's 1st album, haven't bought anything by Fantasia YET! Well, the Summertime single...but, does that count???
Two totally different vocals, but to me, Keyshia has something...passion!
Fantasia screams too damn much!!!
And this is coming from someone who loves Dinah Washington, Anita Baker, Chaka, Will Downing...so I KNOW good music and Fantasia isn't doing it for me...Sorry.
I Love Fantasia's voice and Keyshia's voice these two females are using their God given talents that I'm proud of, but to try and compare who does what better there will always be something different that each bring to the table. I know that Fantasia is proud of herself and she should be. Lets not get ugly!
let me be honest i like'm both but fantasia get the trophy...keisha guurl you good too, but i saw how puff had to keep riding you on "last night" fantasia does it CUZ she can, its just extra that she sounds the shi**y bomb when she does...keisha guurl you keep tryin' CUZ you sound the shi**y bomb when you do...anyway...yall both stars so fuggetta bowdit. yeah
i had heard some stuff like in 2004 when they first came out that they got into a fist fight, how true is it, i dont know, but judging by what fantasia jus said, maybe they did have a beef. i like them both though, maybe fantasia a lil better cause if u notice all keisha cole songs is never about havin fun and chillin wit ya girls its always about a man hurting her and lettin him go lol, i got tired of that $hit. not everybody wanna hear that all the time.
In what galaxy will Fantasia ever sing better than keysha, now come on people. That's why she is not going to win any grammy because she is a jealous witch.
why is she talking 'bout keysha when keysha don't even think of her. Fantasia go and learn how to behave with class instead of making noise about people.
Now if she said that she can sing,perform,dance, etc. better than rihanna, then she will be telling the truth.
I doubt Fantasia said that because she isnt that type of person but if so she does have a better voice then keisha......Love both to death but Fantasia got a lot of soul...Brings tears to your eyes when she sings...........
True is true. There is no day of the week when Keyshia Cole is a better singer that Fantasia. Having heard Keyshia live on more than one occasion, she couldn't carry a tune in a bucket with a kickstand and a safety belt. She will only sound good with the aid of studio tricks. As for style, Keyshia wins hands down, but the vocals are what matter.
The Battle of the Hoodrats!! Truthfully, Fantasia could sing circles around Keyshia Cole. Sorry folks...just being honest. They both sound good and have good Sophomore CD's, but it's just something about Fantasia that stands out.
Naw Fantasia cool..but she better hope the Broadway Play comeback....because American Idol winners are getting dropped like bad habits.....with the exception of Kelly Clarkson everybody gone go down in infamy...
Yall are some dumb mofos if yall believe this. First of all Fantasia was not even in North Carolina this past weekend, so how could their "source" even see her at the mall? Second, Fantasia is the most humble person you'd ever meet, she WOULD NOT break out in singing to prove she is better than anyone.
Third, this is the lamest story MTO has come up with that is why this site constantly gets shitted on!!
I WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO HAVE BOTH KEISHA COLE AND FANTASIA BARRANO IN A THREEWAY LOVE TRIANGLE
AT THE SAME TIME
KEISHA HAS NICE TITS
FANTASIA HAS A NICE BOOTY
I WOULD HAVE FANTASIA BENT OVER
WITH KEISHA ON TOP
BANG FANTASIA FROM BEHIND WHILE SUCKING KEISHA COLES TITTYS
BANG THEM BOTH FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS
WHILE PLAYING ALICIA KEYS CD IN THE BACKGROUND
BEYONCE CAN HOLD THE VIDEO CAMERA (I GOTTA TAPE IT)
IF I BUST BEFORE ANY OF THEM....ILL LET ONE FINISH THE OTHER OFF
THEN I WILL KICK BOTH OF THEM OUT.....(I LIKE TO SLEEP ALONE)
THEN I WOULD TURN MY PHONE OFF...BECAUSE I KNOW 10MINS. AFTER THEY LEAVE....THEY WILL BE CALLING ME TRYING TO SET UP SOMETHING FOR THE NEXT DAY...AND I DONT WANNA HEAR FANTASIA'S RASPY VOICE TELLING ME HOW GOOD I AM IN BED......AND I DONT WANT KEISHA CALLING ME...ASKING ME 2 GIVE HER SISTER NEFFY SOME OF MY ALABAMA-BEEF-SNAKE....EEEW NEFFY SUKS
Good Morning, people. I'm not sure how true the story is but Fantasia is my girl and so is Keyshia, anyways, if yo guys remember, when they were both on tour with Jamie Foxx; supposedly there was some tension between the two of them then. Supposedly it started because Keyshia was on 106 & Park, nd she was asked who was on our with her, she named names and then she said "Oh and that girl from American Idol" Thats not a direct quote but I did see the episode and thats how it went and thats where the supposed drama began so beef between the two is not new. I love them both.
angeleyes1124 Flag post
i agree with her. She's not a bigger star than keisha but she is a better singer
uh babe I have to disagree, Fantasia is a bigger star! She had a leading role in Oprah's Color purple, Keyshia have yet to dream of hearing Oprah speak her name lol
"Well, my question is....DID THIS REALLY HAPPEN???
Or is this just another person sending MTO a MADE UP STORY and their DUMBAZZEZ post it without any SIGNIFICANT EVIDENCE that this in fact really happened! And i see people are STILL falling for it on here!!!! LOL" -- Backshotz
Amen to Backshotz. I mean, good attempt to get folks riled up Fred... As everyone has said, they both have different styles. Kisha could stand to take some lessons from Tasia's voice coach. And Tasia could stand to take a couple sessions with Kisha's stylist.
They're both great R&B songstresses from the hood, though.
Now is Fantasia really preggars with her second child?
This is some ignorant Black folk mess right here. Who gives a damn who sing better, when they both got great voices. Who gives a damn who's better between Aretha, Gladys, Patti, or Chaka, They all have great voices. Just be proud of these women representing our culture.
Who ever this so-called reader is. get a F'in life, and stop trying to tear down people using what god gave them. Find what it is he gave you and do something with it, besides trying to work for FREE for MTO!!! Slave!
COME ON PEOPLE, Fantasia may not be the prettiest chick in the world, but she has a great voice! Have y'all not heard the K.C Commercial on MTV where she is sitting on the park bench with her two background singers.. they sounded awful, changed keys twice, harmonies never locked in... Even her live performances suck! Fantasia is the better singer all day everday.. Hell Ray Charles and Stevie could SEE that!
Fantasia has the edge here. She could blow a song WITHOUT any music at all. I've heard her do it before. Now Keyshia's bad too. I bought her CD yesterday and I haven't stopped playing it yet. My only wonder is what would happen if suddenly Keyshia didn't have the music to back her up...? Keyshia has more style and a touch or should I say a HANDFUL of "ghetto" in her which I love. It makes her more down to earth. Fantasia comes from "hard times" too but I wonder if she sometimes forget where she came from. Both are good and should compliment one another....Fantasia, be confident in who you are and please don't be a hater...it's very unbecoming!
Micali, I agree.
How in the world is Keyshia a bigger star than Fantasia? Oprah probably doesn't even know who Keyshia is, yet she wants Fantasia to star in the Color Purple Movie Musical she is doing. Keyshia is still just a hood star.
..Fantasia, be confident in who you are and please don't be a hater...it's very unbecoming!
You do realize this story is a LIE, don't you? Fantasia wasn't even in North Carolina this past weekend, she was in Atlanta finishing up her album. Why do people believe anything MTO posts? They are proven LIARS.
lets be real. white people dont like looking at very dark blacks and white people are 80% of the market who buys the music.
fantasia needs to get a nice weave and some skin lightener..why do she want to be so black when there is help out there now?
Why do it all come down to looks?? The issue is singing and in y opinion fantasia can sing smoke around keisha. I live in ohio and bought a ticket for my sister to see keisha in concert and she cancelled stating that it was to cold to perform. what REAL artist would let a fan of fans down because of weather. as for me I am a PATTI LaBelle fan and she performs in all season's. not that's an artist.
when it come 2 the church & blues i would give it 2 fantasia, but technically keyshia iz the better sing. it'z like destiny'z child "b" got a sound all her own, but ask any vocal coach & they would say technically kelly iz the the better singer... louder doesn't alwayz mean better. did anybody wath "dreamgirl's"? sometimes less iz more. if it'z true thiz iz just my opinion!1 also tasia iz not a songwriter... the fact the didn't write on her 2nd disc sayz she won't b a good 1 4 awhile. 1 last thing remember letoya london from "american idol" technically she was light year'z ahead of fantasia, but tasia had that "it" factor... i'm goin wit keyshia on thiz... & i like both equal.
1 more last thing remember the boyz 2 men & jodeci dayz? well kc had a distinctive powerhouse voice, but technically the 3 lead singer'z n b2m( maybe not nate) were better singer... really only blkz can identify wit it & would say the opposite of what i just just said... thiz doesn't make me or it right, but i think i am
Billybob9 you are an idiot. WHAT IS WRONG WITH BEING TRUE TO WHO YOU ARE? HERE IS SOMETHING FOR YOU TO THINK ON.......HOW DO YOU THINK THE LIGHTER SKIN COLOR CAME ABOUT?? FROM RAPE OR SEX FROM OUR SLAVED ANCESTORS. I HOPE THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY CHILDREN BECAUSE WITH COMMENTS LIKE THAT YOUR CHILDREN WILL FOR SURE HAVE LOW SELF ESTEEM.
LOL Fantasia can sing better than a lot of people. Keisha has songs that are more radio friendly but terrible management and PR. They marketing for Fantasia was great in the at first but they changed directions and their went Fantasia. Both artist need to perform on television and awards shows more.
billybob9 wow i come on this jawn to bullshit and waste time at work, none of the comments i ever really make are serious but that had to b the dumbest most ignorant hilly billy sh$t i ever read in my life. i guess your about 40 from Alabama and your married to your mom and having an affair with your sister while all living in the same trailer park community?
LOL Fantasia can sing better than a lot of people. Keisha has songs that are more radio friendly but terrible management and PR. The marketing for Fantasia was great at first but they changed directions and their went Fantasia. We don't really see her no more. Both artist need to perform on television and awards shows more.
lol *correction was needed*
F^ck that bytch Keyshia Cole. She sounds like a cat thrown in cold water. And she can't even hit high notes right. Anyone with an ear for vocals would know Fantasia is a wayyyyy wayyyy better vocalist, she is the young Aretha Franklin. TRUE STORY
this is what they make skin lightening creme for.
to help darker skinned blacks.the blacks in india and africa have had great success with this. and the hot comb and the weave has african american women looking very beautiful now. its better than having nappy hair and too dark skin.
Imagine is Beyonce went on stage with nappy hair or if Rihanna made videos without using her skin lightening cremes? It would be very distasteful.Even black people dont want nappy hair, why should we expect whites to tolerate it?
SHE HAS A DIFFERENT STYLE , FANTASIA SHOULD STICK WITH GOSPEL MUSIC , KEYSHA'S STYLE I LOVE SHE CAN ROCK THE BEAT AND HER LYRICS ARE REALITY IN SOME RELATIONSHIPS , I JUST LOVE KEYSHA, I THINK FANTASIA IS WRONG FOR DISSING KEYSHA THATS NOT GOOD AT ALL WE NEED TO STOP SHOWING THE WORLD THAT WE CAN'T SEEM TO COME TOGETHER AS BROTHER & SISTER WE ALWAYS DOGING EACH OTHER OUT AND THE WORLD IS LOOKING AT US AND TALKING SHITT ABOUT US BUT WE CAUSE THIS MOST PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT AFRICAN AMERICAN THINK WE ARE JUST STUPPID THAT WHY OPPORTUNITY FOR US IS SLOW
and i dont mean any disrespect to dark skinned blacks and blacks with nappy hair..But when you deal with the entertainment industry you have to be attractive, not ugly to sell the visual.
Fantasia needs a wig or weave and she needs to be a bout 4 shades lighter like the beautiful Keyshia Cole...Thats why Keyshia is on top with lesser talent...Shes pretty and Fantasia is ugly and black.
Of course Fantasia sounds better than Keyshia Cole...of course, who would say otherwise? And, she also LOOKS MUCH BETTER. I don't know why we're so afraid to hold a darker skinned woman in higher esteem than a fair skinned one...but it can't be denied, really...Keyshia Cole looks like some exotic newborn animal. Sorry. And, her terrible sense of style does nothing to help her... Fantasia is quite tacky too, but physically, she's clearly the winner...
Didn't they have it out during some Kanye tour? And, I knew things wouldn't go well because Keyshia pretended not to know Fantasia's name on 106th and Park (Fantasia, a woman who had sold far more records than she had at that point). Also, Fantasia might be a bit upset because Keyshia has sorta been given this "Lil MJB/Queen of the ghetto" pass when it should be rightfully Fantasia's...who after all, made "Baby Mama"? LOL
I'm just sitting back laughing my ass off at my own people. Yall sound ignorant as hell. who sings better... LOL. Light skin VS darkskin. One little story from some unknown source, and we get comments like "F keisha Cole..." "Fantasia voise irritates me...". Boy know wonder our government can bulls#!t us all day. Ya'll some gullable people.
hey billybob, i ain't tryin 2 start sh*t or nothin like that, but how can a blk person b 2 blk? do u mean her voice or her skin? i hope it'z the former, cuzz u sound color struck or white(no offence 2 my lighter bro'z) basically i can't see why u would say that or what it mean'z on thiz topic.
the music industry in not about talent anymore. its about looks. anyone can be made to sound tolerable in the studio to sell records..they will only be exposed when they tour live.
thats why all the top stars are mulatto or very light skinned. they have the good hair without the help of artificial hair and they have the beautidul light skin which shows well on camera and video.
why do you think all the top stars and very light skinned? you think its coincidence?
I like them both..Fantasia has a unique sound to her voice that I like..Keyshia has a decent voice. If I had to pick artist for artist I'd go with Fantasia but that does not mean Keyshia is without talent....
BILLY BOB9. There are plenty of blacks who are dark and are just fine in the industry. have you seen the dark skinned sister from africa who models???? There is no such thing as nappy hair. curly,overly curly,straight and wavy. so what you and other people refer to as nappy is overly curly hair. not everyone in the indusrty has conformed to the straight hair look. some black folks love the way they look. drugs are also avilable but do everyone buy drugs? no. I agree with illyphilly, you are a mess.
bb how old r u? u really can't believe that b/s... u on some plantation sh*t. if u can't have nappy hair, how lauryn hill wit all them award'z, did u 4get about eryah(how ever u spell her name) 2 year'z b4... and 2 answer yo question,
the immature commentz u maken iz the answer 2 yo ?...!!!!!!6
yo behind(azz) can't b blk & if u not... please thiz alone, cuzz have changed the whole subject
Please,who gives a fat baby,if that is true,it just displays no class on Fantasia's part.Both of them are making money so what is the problem.I will be so glad when new school performers finally get over themselves,it's so childish.The fans could care less about this Drama,come on Fantasia,your fans deserve better than that.
I tried really hard not to post, but this good and bad hair, whether your dark or your fair, crap is old! Keyshia Cole is singing is far better than it was and she has talent. She could be around for awhile, if she distance the circus of a family she has. Fantasia Barrino needs to stop singing and talking through her nose. She has potential talent,but her attitude is getting beside her. I am not a fan of Fantasia's because just like Beyonce I cannot distinguish her songs, they all sound the same.
white people get tans and so whats wrong with black people getting skin peels like Michael Jackson, Rihanna, and Trina, Lil Kim, and theres 30 black actors who have gotten skin peels and skin lightening treatments...
I'll stay out of this one because I don't know if this is true, or if MTO is making stuff up again.
Fantasia was on the Michael Baisden show last year talking about how Beyonce was acting over Jennifer Hudson getting all the attention from the movie, 'Dreamgirls.' For her to be hypocritical after complaining about Beyonce, I can't see her being this stupid. Or, I should say, I HOPE she's not this stupid.
If this story is true, it's not like she lying.
And I must be the only person who thinks Fantasia is beautiful. What is it about her that makes her un-attractive?
If you ever seen Keyisha without make-up some of ya'll would take them comments back. She looks so hard looking.
I kinda believe this story, just because of that beef they had a while back when Tasia first started touring and Keyshia was just getting HOTT and they were on a tour together (forgot which one) and Keyshia was trying to play her to the left saying Tasia was just a "contest winner". Granted she did get Hott winning a contest, but the girl got some serious vocal skillz and she does sound better than Keyshia, but I love them both, they both have their own styles!!!!
lol fantasia will get fucked up in a battle, all that damn hollerin is not singin sweetheart, KEYSHIA got you beat in alot of ways,
1. keyshia's pretty, fantasia'a ugly
2.keyshia can sing, fantasia yells & screams
3.keyshia's a real celebrity, fantasia's a american idol winner who's steal a reject
need i go on ???
everybody wanna hate keyshia cause she ghetto fabulous,but that bitch can sang her ass off, tell fantasia greasy ass to go read a book lmao
I KNOW THIS STORY ISN'T TRUE, TRY AGAIN FREDDIE! But if the rare possibility she said it, she ain't lying. Fantasia's voice is rustic yet soulful but she still can sing. Keyisha cole is rustic too but in a bad way, she sounds like a dying cat pleaing to live. IDK who Keyisha Cole fucked to get that record deal.
okay... mon more mr. nice pimp... 1st yo momma went crazy cuzz her daddy didn't like yo daddy'z nappy hair(lol)!! the reason blkz ain't really tryin 2 lightin they skin iz... what race won't 2 b white, not none of the 1's i know, sh*t ya'll don't even won't b white... now ya'll irish, russian, german, italian, jewish... anything but white. i'm sorry 2 any1 white, he/she askin 4 it & i choose x over king... thiz iz just like a racist (blk or white)... not 2 hav ea pic.
@NancyS...I always respond as if the story's true. If it don't apply, Fantasia can let if fly. My point was that she's a PROVEN talent and there's no need for her to hate. A lot of the time lately, MTO has been on point but if they're wrong about this story...oh well.
Who the hell cares about what Oprah thinks? What I DO know is that Oprah CAN'T sing!!! She's rich and famous but she couldn't hold a tune in a bucket! I've heard her before!!! Whoa!! I doubt she would recognize a good voice if she heard one. Just because O's not up on Keyshia doesn't mean that Keyshia's not hot! The girl's got REAL star potential....ghetto, bad attitude and all!
I like Oprah and give her big ups for her accomplishments but just because she may not be up on Keyshia Cole does not mean that Keyshia's not a star. Keyshia is WELL on her way!!
DMOE....thank you. HEY BILLIY BOB, YOU NEED TO UP YOUR NUMBERS WITH BLACK WOMEN THAT HAVE NATURAL HAIR. I WILL NOT NAME WHO THE MANY ARE WHICH ARE MORE THAN TEN. INSTEAD WHY DON'T YOU LOOK IT UP AS I SEE YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SEARCHING LONG ENOUGH. ALL YOU FOUCUS ON IS BEYONCE AND RHIANNA. THERE ARE WAYYYY MORE BLACK SINGERS THAN THAT WITH NATURAL HAIR.YOU STILL SOUND RIDICULOUS. PLEASE DON'T HAVE CHILDREN BECAUSE WE ALREADY HAVE ENOUGH PARENTS THAT TEACH THERE KIDS BLACK IS UGLY.
@IZITJUSTME...hey girlie what's up..just dropping in to tell ya...Hi......i think both ladies are talented ghetto DIVAS on different levels though...but both are talented as hell..i like "em both.....MTO is just trying to get some "stuff" started....lol....
I have to say thet having seen and heard Fantasia perform before , she is a much better singer/ artist than Keshia (Ghetto)Coles. Fantasia can be a little to screamy at time ,but she has a pair of lungs on her that is very much so a gift from God.
Keshia's vocals are so very limited and she strains to sound like nothing I guess that what drugs do to you. But I say at least she trys.
@mafiaprincess: I like both too. They have different styles and it's all good. Damn, it would be messed up if everybody sounded the same. wouldn't it?
Alright Princess it's good 2 hear from you as ALWAYS!
DRAMA IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT< STARTED BT MEDIA TAKEOUT!!!!
FANTASIS WAS NOT AT GREENBRIAR MALL AND FANTASIA WOULD NEVER SAY THAT WHEN SOMEONE COMPLIMENTS HER SHE ALWAYS SAYS THANK YOU, AND ANYONE WHO KNOWS FANTASIA KNOWS SHE IS NOT BIG ABOUT TALKING ABOUT OTHERS.....SO NOT HER AND ANOTHER THING FANTASIA HAS BEEN VERY BUSY WORKING SOME OF THE THINGS SHE HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN ARE MORE MAINSTREAM AND THINGS WHICH URBAN AND GHETTO BLACKS MAY NOT ATTEND...SHE IS DOING JUST INE AND AS FAR AS BEING A STAR..SHE MADE 34 MILLION $ BOX OFFICE TAKE DURING HER RUN WITH THE COLOR PURPLE...SHE AIN'T HURTING AND SHE IS ON THE DOWNLOW ON PURPSOSE SHE DOES NOT LIKE OR NEED THE ATTENTION AND SHE ONLY REALLY COMES OUT WHEN SHE IS WORKING.
BUT SHE DID NOT SAY THIS SHE IS VERY HUMBLE AND YOU ALL EVIDENTLY HAVE NOT SEEN FANTASIA RECENTLY AND HER VOCALS ARE TRULY ON POINT....FANTASIA HAS BEEN VERY BLESSED.
MTO MADE THIS UP OR THE LADYS ARE PROBABLY ONE OF THE MANY HATERS FROM NC WHO DID NOT MAKE IT OUT OF THE HOOD SHE HAS A LOT OF YOUNG GIRLS IN NC WHO ARE JEALOUS AND LIE ON HER BIG TIME!!!! BELIEVE THAT, YOU WOULD BE ASTONISHED AT HOW THE YOUNG GIRLS HATE ON HER THEY LOVE THESE BLOGS SO THEY CAN USE YOU TO BITE THEIR BAIT....AND A STAR SHE IS WHEN SHE HIT BROADWAY THAT'S WHEN THEY CAME OUT OF THE WOODWORK...ALL KINDS OF LIES AND MOST OF YOU FED INTO IT!!!
that was a tad tacky of tasia for real... as black women we are double minorities... first for being black and second for being women...so why tear up another sister who is doing positive big things? yes i love tasia and i love key and for the same reason they both can sing... dont hate tasia its plenty to go around dang!!!!!
By the way maybe I should not be telling you this Fantasia does not do a lot of mall shopping in NC, though you say she is not a star well she can not go many places in peace and she always has a bodyguard, and if she was in the amll I am surprised that they did not mention her little girl because she is never robbed of a chance to shop with her Moms ahd and her daughter are very close and she would have had protection for Zion...Fantasia is not the joke you try to make her to be. And its obvious again none of you have seen her recently..they did not see Fantasia at any alone and she sang for them and she was alone?
Lying jealous haters like many of you who do not have a clue about Fantasia Barrino, not one clue and she keeps it that way.
By the way check your facts her album did well and she was nominated for three grammy though she did not really promote it due to the play.She is performing but are you going to pay $100 a plate to see her???and did you pay for those costly tickets at he Lincoln Center when she performed with Wynton Marsalis, she is busy.
I'll settle this one! the diff between K Cole and Fantasia is that K Cole deep throats the sh$t outta of a dik and humms on my balls like no other but Fantasia deep throats, ball humms and lets u bust down her throat or she takes it on the face. if u dont like what i say fuk u and keep it moving!!
AGAIN, THIS IS ANOTHER LIE FROM MTO< AND IF YOU WANT TO CONTINUE TO BELIVE IT THEN YOU STILL PROVE TO THE GULLIBLE ILLITERATE AND IGNORANT FOOLS THAT MTO HAS MADE YOU OUT TO BE!!!!
YOU ALL KNOW YOU HATE FANTASIA WITH A PASSION UNTIL IT IS A SICKNESS WITH YOU AN A OBSESSION
LAST WORD WELL THEN HATE ON!!!!! IF IT IS CAUSING YOU TO BECOME BETTER AND RICHER!!!!
YOU SAY THAT FANTASIA LOOKS LIKE YOSHI FROM MARIO BROTHERS RIGHT? HA HA HA!!! WELL I LIKE YOSHI FROM MARIO BROTHERS, THEREFORE I WILL FUGG THE SHYT OUT OF FANTASIA'S YOSHI LOOKIN ASS. THOSE LIPS, THAT ASS AND THOSE HIPS CAN GET IT ALL DAY FROM ME AND I WOULDN'T GIVE A FUGG IF SHE LOOK LIKE YOSHI OR ANY OTHER CHARACTER FROM MARIO BROTHERS I WILL TEAR THAT ASS THE FUGG UP. DIG THAT SHYT.
Can we please appreciate the diversity among our lovely R&B artists? Beyonce, Fantasia, Alicia, Keyshia and the rest all have their own styles and looks and it is GREAT!! Granted some have better voices but every singer isn't going to sound the way you would like them to.
There is room for everyone in this business; if they all sounded the "same" or looked "alike" you would really be bitchin! Appreciate it, don't hate.
YOUR LIPS ARE SERIOUS BUSINESS. NOW THOSE ARE SOME MUTHAFUGGIN LIPS. MY HAT GOES OFF TO THE MAN WHO'S LUCKY ENOUGH TO GET SOME SUGAR FROM THOSE JUICY ASS LIPS YOU GOT. GAWD DAYUM GIRL!!! VERY VERY NICE.
we all love what you say and we ain"t mad at you or insulted because we are all entitled to our opinions of others,I personally think you are very funny and cute and not offensive at all because we all know the kind of world we live in.
One thing I will add and who really cares there is enough money to go around for everyone.
Glad that you enjoyed both of the ladies and I am quite sure they are both much better after haveing been with you, I knowyou got some jealous brothers on here.
Way to go you are a REAL MAN!!!!! don't see them like you everyday!!!!
You know the media loves to plant cat fights between women--namely black ones. Why aren't there any reports of fights ever reported between white stars? Because they make this stuff up.
Until it is reported on why Fantasia missed so many performances with The Color Purple, I'm still disappointed in her. That was a great opportunity to showcase her broad talents.
Technically speaking, just from a straight up singing perspective, Fantasia is the better singer. However, Keyshia is the better package. She's better looking, she's the better entertainer, she has better songs, etc.
I THINK THAT FANTASIA WOULD BE A BETTER FU\CK THEN KEISAH COLE
I THINK THAT KEISHA COLE WOULDNT GIVE A GOOD 'HEAD JOB' PERFORMANCE
FANTASIA WOULD PROBERLLY LET A MAN BUST ON HER VOICE BOX
KEISHA PROBERLY WOULD COMPLAIN AND SAY 'DONT GET NOTHING IN MY MOUTH....LEMME KNOW WHEN YOU ABOUT TO BUST SO THAT I WONT GET NONE OF IT ON ME'............WTF??????????
FANTASIA WOULD OUT FREAK KEISHA ANY DAY
KEISHA LOOKS LIKE SHE TOO CUTE TO TAKE A BIG DICK
FANTASIA WOULD PROBERLY TAKE IT UP THE BUTT TOO
BUT AS I SAID BEFORE
I WOULD FU\CK BOTH THEM BROADS

LOL @ im-chuck-dawg-bytch!!!!!! I will take Fantasia over Keyshia! Fantasia doesn't not have 15 mins of fame, she is a very good actress! Has anyone seen her in the play "Color Purple on Broadway"? Need I say more!

OF KEYSHiA..DO SHE THiNK KEYSHiA TRYiNG
2 OUT SHiNE HER..WHiLE SHE'S NOT THERE
AT THAT..LOL..BUT THAT WAS CHiLDiSH..
BUT i LiKE THEM BOTH..
I totally agree with you both of there voices annoy the shiit out of me! Especially Fantasia, I can at least listen to an entire song by Keshia but Fantasia’s voice annoys me so much I have to change the station. The argument should be who sings the worst! I can't sing for shiit however I sing better than Keshia. Where's my record deal? And Fantasia looks like her butt stinks !!!!!!!!
Keyshia can sing, but she can't touch Fantasia... I'm you telin you that right now! Just give Keyshia and Fatasia a mic with no music and absolutely no acompanyment at all. Fantasia would vocally smash Keyshia. Keyshia can't even find her key without music half the time. Yall remember that Easter Sunday incident...lol
Fantasia has that annoying Patty Labelle voice only she sounds more like a deaf-mute version of Patti trying to sing
Keyshia cant stay on key but her boice at least sounds better than fantasia..
lol I remember Cedric saying that Fantasia sings like she got a speech impedement-lolol
Why we always gotta have a PISSIN contest??? WTF? WEll since she went there...KEYSHIA COLE look betta than her on any given DAY! People in glass houses should NOT through stones.
Fantasia come off sometimes as tacky and VERY GHETTO in some of her performances too!!! Shit they BOTH Ghetto; similiar in a lott damn ways***** This some dumb shit here. UH NEXT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
From reading your comments it seems as though as most of you have been completely out of touch with what has been going on with Fantasia,as for the color purple televison interview done on national tv with truth about her real days off due to sickness and not many,as for the play....there is someplace you can go to get info about all things Fantasia but it seems as though you choose to use MTO a your source on Fantasia.
If you think she is a failure and not successful and has not done well then you are entititled to your opinion,but I will tell you sh e knows who her fan base and it is and it is not you...
MTO THANK YOU FOR AND YOUR READERS FOR ALL THE LOVELY AND ENCOURAGING THINGS WHICH YOU HAVE SAID ABOUT FANTASIA AND IF I SEE SHE AND HER BROTHERS I WILL MAKE SURE I GET ON HER FOR SAYING THIS BECAUSE YOU KNOW MTO NEVER LIES AND PEOPLE ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH AND FANTASIA IS LOVED AND APPRECIATED BY YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!
GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU AND I WISH YOU ALL AS MUCH SUCCESSS AND PROSPERITY AS FANTASIA>>GOOD LOOKING OUT YOU ARE A GREAT BUNCH OF YOUNG PEOPLE WITH LOTS OF CLASS FANTASIA COULD LEARN SOMETHING VALUABLE FROM EACH OF YOU!!!!!! AGAIN THANKS MTO
GOOD LOOKING OUT!!!!
Fantasia may not compare to Miss Cole when it comes to looks but she beats her hands down in the singing department,i am a fan of both ladies but the good lord sure did bless Miss Barrino with a beautiful voice
KEISHA STRAINS WHEN SHE SINGS!!!!I HEARD HER SING SOME GOSPEL SONG ON YOU TUBE-HOMEGIRL COULDN'T KEEP KEY FOR SH*T!!! LOL!!! NOW TASIA SHE HAS SO MUCH CLARITY AND RANGE TO HER VOICE, REGUARDLESS THAT SHE SCREAMS TOO MUCH SOMETIMES!!
Matter of fact Tasia is the only Black singer that can brag about her singing ability in my book. She is the only person that I have heard (American Idol) that can sing without any equipment enhancing, editing, mixing, and synthsizing her voice for the public. Basically, she can see without help from digital equipment, getting naked, and doing lapdances.
YEAH FANTASIA U MIGHT HAVE A STRONGER VOICE, OR BETTER YET AND DIFFERENT SOUNDING VOICE....NOT SO MUCH BETTER, BUT DIFFERENT! BUT HERE'S THE DIFFERENCE TASIA...
YOU SING WHAT UR TOLD...SHE SINGS WHAT SHE FEELS! KEYSHIA GETS MY VOTE...ALL DAY
Yeah whatever MTO. I don't believe Fantasia said that. Anybody can send in news. A 10 year old could've sent that to them and like dummies they believe it and post it. Then yall even more dumb for believing the sh*t they post. Me, I dont really like neither one of them. I can tolerate Keyshia more though. Fantasia may never get a real superstar status but then again Keyshia still has Mary J. Blige years to go.
Until it is reported on why Fantasia missed so many performances with The Color Purple, I'm still disappointed in her. That was a great opportunity to showcase her broad talents.
Fantasia did explain why she missed 24 performances in 9 months, NOT 50. Watch this video:
And she didn't ruin an opportunity, Oprah wants her in the movie musical version of The Color Purple. Read this-
You can tell what age you are with those corny dick jokes you and the other little boys on this page are telling. No one cares about your little 3 inch dick, go wash your musty balls and stick that little twig you have in an electrical socket. You are not funny...you could not pay anybody to suck that little thing!!
WhackoD, How is Keyshia's music better than Fantasia's? Seriously...
Truth Is > Love
When I See U > Shoulda Let You Go
Free Yourself > I Shoulda Cheated
Hood Boy > Let It Go
Two Weeks Notice> I Remember
All Fantasia's songs are better than Keyshia's. Notice all Keyshia songs are about the same damn thing! A man did her wrong and cheated and she is in pain. Bitch GET OVER IT that pain and sing about something different!
Google their album reviews, Fantasia's reviews trump Keyshia's, the critics say so.
I’m not digesting any of this MTO!!!
At any rate, I’ve heard both of these ladies live and Fantasia is a lot better; hands down… Don’t get me wrong, I like Keyshia’s music. LOVE is one of my favorite songs, but I was very disappointed when I went to see her live. She had difficulties hitting her notes; especially when she performed Love. However, Fantasia bellowed all of her songs for the Color Purple.
It’s not what you say; it’s how you say it!!!
Keysha Cole & Fantasia are ok, but people need to take notice of this chick from Cali named Latoyia Williams, she sang a lot of hooks for Snoop & The DPG. Soon everybody will know Latoyia Williams & What Cha Gonna Do When Latoyia Williams songs run wild on you......Brother!
What the hell ever happened to Mi'chele
I Was 4 Real
Ok here's the real deal me and my girlfriend agree that KEISHA is the bigger star. She has more mass appeal, more style, and her production is tighter on her albums. But jus straight up blowing.I have to give it to FANTASIA. KEISHA doesnt sound bad either. But some of you made a good point, they have 2 different styles but FANTASIA is more polished in the vocal department.
if fantasia was so damn good and better than most then her record sales would reflect that. obviously keshia is alot better at her than something else. ad its sad to say but achieving fame in the music world involves more than just being a better singer
where did all these pussies come from? since when has the singing game not been a contest. yes keisha and fantasia have different styles but one is clearly better than the other. fantasia can sing rings around keysha and everybody, including keisha, knows it. i'm a fan of both of them but tasia got something keisha don't. we all know record sales has nothing to do with talent, if that was the case vanilla ice would be one of the best rappers of all times.

man if Fantasia dont stop she can sing by she aint all that.......... what i love Keyshia Cole she sing bomb my [EXPLETIVE]>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
i just read your ebonically laced shyt and got a headache!!
Why are you acting like Keyshia sells so many more records than Fantasia? They are both about EVEN in amount of albums sold.
Keyshia's 1st album= 1.4 million
Keyhsia's 2nd album-1 million
Total= 2.4 million
Fantasia 1st album- 1.8 million
Fantasia 2nd album 500k
Total= 2.3 million
Plus Tasia has a better acting resume. If you ask me both are about equally successful, but Fantasia outweighs with her better vocals.
Yea, Tasia can sing her big lips off I got to give it to the girl. Key she has stepped up her game but it still needs work.
Plus personality has a lot to do with the music business also, so Tasia got her on that too.
"I'm just saying"
Fantasia got Key beat HANDS DOWN!!! So what if Key got her in the looks dept. Everybody not going to look like a beauty queen anyway. Fantasia got a voice. And so what if she made those comments, everybody don't like everybody so what's up? Just cause they're both black singers they gotta be friends? Everybody at the liquor store don't like each other, what's the diff? Key might can read better than Fan but she haven't made an effort to read one of them etiquette & manners books.
Key only sound good with help from a studio. Her looks are what got her in & her attitude gonna take her out. It's a video on YouTube of Key singing His Eye Is on the Sparrow live in a church. I was ticked as a mufo at how she was desecrating such a holy song with them awful off-key notes. And you knew she was a heathen cause the trick didn't even know all the words to it. She just kept falling more & more off till she finally said "oooo Jesus help me please." She sure needed some help cause I know she was shattering the stain-glass windows.
Oh yeah, LMAO at the Yoshi crack! You ain't right!!
i like keisha and fantasia keisha can def get it fantasia MIGHT can get it but i like them both but i got both k. cole cd's don't have any of fantasias i just listen to her on radio
I'M SO CHI YOU THOUGHT I WAS BASHFUL!!
have to add i def think fantasia has a better voice k. cole just entertains me more and they both prolly can get it but k.cole def would get it i like em both they both bring different things to the table i like
tasia keep keepin it real let her earn her stripes she can't even do a concert tour without drama.when was she on BROADWAY on her way to the club...........SISTAS STOP TRYING TO CAUSE FRICTION STICK TOGETHER.KEYSIA BABY KEEP UP THE THERAPY YOU HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR GREATNESS BUT TAKE YOUR TIME AND LEARN ON THE WAY
If there is truth to this, based on MTO's rants about Keyshia's attitude--Fantasia is on point, so where is the news? She is a better performer/singer than screaming ass, ghetto, Mary-J wanna-be, unoriginal Keyshia Crack Cole.
Hey you actually feel what Tasia sings...and people...the screaming that you are proclaiming comes from a deep place that is to deep for Words...Fatasia is one of the best out there right now...she is keep soul music alive.
man if Fantasia dont stop she can sing by she aint all that.......... what i love Keyshia Cole she sing bomb my [EXPLETIVE]
WTF? Could you please translate this shyt? Im with jrlink on this one... LOL
i like Keisha, but MY girl Fantasia does have a better voice and can rock any show any day. i dont think she was being childest when making that comment she just was proving a point. Point taken thats why i would go to her concert fastest than Keisha' s
Fantasia ain't never lied!!! She is right. I like Keisha, but clearly, Taisa has a God-given voice.
Honestly, I doubt seriously that Keisha would have even gotten a golden ticket to Hollywood from AI let alone become a finalist. It would have never happened.
Honestly who cares??
The media is perpetuating black women against each other. They are both great artists and I wish the both well.
As far as my age and dick is concerned...
I am fully grown in that department although it was never mentioned by me....I see where your mind is at!!! ;(
she really didnt need to go there. that is what is wrong with black people... always competing with each other when there is enough "food" out there for all of us !! unity is strength !!
i find them both very talented within their own unique ways.....
@mafiaprincess, illogic, whatupdoe, what's going on with you. Me personally like both singers, I love those raspy voices they both have, and admittedly both are very sexy, they both doing there thing
P.S.Freshmagnet; I agree, The media is perpetuating black women against each other.
WHATEVER!!! Fantasia sounds like she's hoarse all the time...and she probably is from all the screaming she does. I haven't heard either sing live tho so...i can't really say. Either way I'm a die hard Keyshia fan...as evidenced by my avatar.
Keyshia may have Fantasia with the looks.She don't got Fantasia with the singing.Like that person at the TOP said!Keyshia don't wanna get a southern ass beating by Fantasia.She better get Amina to help her.lol
uh honey, i actually saw her in the color purple and she was WONDERFUL but keisha has her reality show and she gets way more respect in the game. Its just that fantasia got tainted with the whack juice from American Idol. If she was discovered otherwise, she would have blown up beyond belief. so i agree with u partially and i luv both of them as artists. ITS JUST MYYYY OPINION!
We beg to differ with you Fantasia has blwon up as you say,just because you don't see her on BET??urban
Fantasia has one of the best management teams in the country...they know what they are doing Fantasia is not urban she is now mainstream,and
if you would check her bio and her work history you would see she has done things Keisha has never done and everthing that Keisha is doing she has done it...they are still playing her movie on Lifetime.Abd you probably have never gone to Fannys page.Then you would know every lie that mto tells, for sure.I am not talking about myspace either.
As far as the statement from the two young ladies sounds fishy to me as I once said, the mall Fantasia that was back in th day and even then she couldn't go anywhere without a throng of people..she at the mall and just those two showed up and asked for autographs, please not Fantasia, and she was alone as I said before you don't have a clue about how Fantsaia lives,and these fools are clearly lying.
it isn't even announced when she is coming to church, have to keep everything on the downlow why do you think when she was doing the play they stopped folk from taking pictures at the stage door and the blogs all circulate the same old pics from wire image and nothing recent, go figure...these young ladies are lying..and if Keisha Cole wants to put her business out there on Black Exploitation Televison and call herself a star then so be it.
I personally think Keisha has a lovely voice but I have recntly heard Fanny sing,even sice the play and she knows all she has is her voice and she is working it,and white and black audiences are loving her.
Fantasia has worked since Idol ever not worked...check it out,its on the web everything from the time she has won Idol,has Keisha don the Kennedy Honors?,Lincoln Center?all the Tonys? all the other award shows etc....Fanny is doing and has done just fine.
Whoever is really comparing singing abilties between Keyshia and Fantasia are Lame and Wack. I like both Artist but i Repp Keyshia to the fullest. And all yall who talkin shit bout Fan or Keysh, grow up. We mature folks dont need yo 4 Page essay about what u dont like about them just say who u think sing better and get the fuck on with your none important life. u Miserable BASTARDS. Half of yall didnt even buy Fantasia Second Album that only went Gold as of the June 07. it was Released Dec. 06. Her First album went Double Platinum thanks to her Publicity on American Idol. Keyshia first Album went Platinum and And as of Dec. 07 her second Album has Gone Platinum. and it was released Sept. 07.. hmmm only took 4 months. But regarless of who sing better i like both artist. But We Know who sellin more. ANd keyshia has it works of another album set for release this Yr.
But We Know who sellin more. ANd keyshia has it works of another album set for release this Yr.
They both have sold the same amount (both a little over 2 million). But if you want to get technical Fantasia has sold more Worldwide. So what exactly is your point? In your breakdown of sales you also forgot to mention Keyshia Cole has had 3 singles and 3 videos, while Fantasia has only had 2. Keyshia has been on 3 tours so far, while Fantasia has been on Broadway bringing in millions for Oprah. And first album Keyshia had 4 single and 4 videos while Fantasia only had 2 videos. Fantasia is also working on a new album to release this year...
So rep Keyshia like you want but state FACTS in doing so.
Aint to many people on earth can out sang Fantasia! I think Tasia said that because on one of Keysha shows a long time ago, she said that Fant didnt deserve to will American Idol.
Like Simon said, Fantasia was the best ever!
Fantasia should be trying to start beef with keyshia. she needs to concentrate on trying to sell some records i dont even know what was the point of winning american idol.. like snoop dogg said the bitch is ugly and cant sell no records. keyshia cole is way better
