Troubled Season 3 "American Idol" champ Fantasia always seems to be surrounded by chaos, some of which she brings upon herself: feuding with JET magazine, courting controversy for ranting about gay marriage on her Instagram account, and of course there was that affair with a still-legally-married man back in 2010, and her subsequent emotional breakdown/suicide attempt amid all the media scrutiny. Fantasia's life, which she once famously said was "not a fairytale," never seems to be an easy one.
But whenever 'Tasia shoots a music video, she always pulls it together and makes performing look totally effortless.
Case in point: Fantasia's latest vid, for the "Nightshift"-sampling "Lose To Win." A retro-glamorous affair from beginning to end, Fantasia looks like a class act in diamonds, pearls, flapper fringe, and a Louise Brooks bob, and she even shows off her Broadway-honed acting chops a bit.
Oh, if only life would imitate art. I'm always rooting for this talented lady.
Fantasia's fourth album, Side Effects Of You--her first since 2010's Back To Me--comes out April 23. Along with "Lose To Win," the album will feature collaborations with Kelly Rowland, Missy Elliott, and Bad Boy recording artist King Los.
