Fantasia Opens Up About Bullying, Instagram: ‘I See It As A Joke’

"American Idol" winner and "Ain't All Bad" singer Fantasia says there is such a thing as online bullying, especially when you look at comments left on social media tools like Instagram.

Addressing negative comments about her looks, love life and more, Fantasia says those that make nasty or negative comments need prayer.

"At this point, I see it as a joke. It’s like bullying. It’s becoming a form of bullying. I always see it like, if there’s somebody taking the time to say something evil or say something mean, those are the people I pray for because 9 times out of 10 they are dealing with something themselves," Fantasia shared with Hip Hop Media Training in a recent interview.

In related news, Fantasia has credited her daughter and son for saving her life. Because of them, she is still here with a new found peace.

"My kids, they’re the best things that ever happened to me. They are the reason why I am still here. They’re the reason why I’m still going, and why at this point I have such a peace about everything and I try not to let things get to me like they used to anymore," says Fantasia.

As previously reported, Fantasia's new album, "Side Effects of You," is available now. It is also poised to debut atop the Billboard R&B albums chart later this week.
