After being disconnected from the social media world for almost two years, she returned to twitter late last week to catch her fans up on her new project (which she says that she is very excited about), her new son Dallas Xaviar, and she also cleared up a few choice words that she had for R. Kelly during a CIAA weekend event this year.
In footage, that circulated the web from a party that she attended earlier this year, R. Kelly performed in front of a packed crowd and left the stage after only singing a few lines of his hit song, ‘Honey Love’. Fantasia came on stage right after, and told the audience,
[I'm not going to give] you half of a song, I’ve come to give you your money’s worth. I found it a little disrespectful, but things don’t happen like that ….especially in my city.’
According to Tasia, her words could have been taken the wrong way and she has nothing but love and admiration for Kellz. She also admitted to being misinformed about certain details of the event. She wrote:
That night was one to remember…lol There was some behind the scene drama that took place someone snatched money from the door
the show was delayed about 90 minutes R. Kelly WHO I HAVE GREAT RESPECT FOR was sick and later hospitalized that night
I am such an R Kelly fan I love his style his music his character & I went with my fist pumped waiting for 12 play…lol
I wanted to hear him perform so bad & was told he was going to perform 6-8 songs to later find out he was NEVER booked to perform
It is so sad that folk do these type of things to us in the industry but I know from experience that it happens
Kellz hit the stage & I was side stage center with my fingers snapping
When he hit the stage & sang a few lines a shut it downnnnn baby the true FAN in me responded, I could have cried….lol
When I got up I talked about it but HAD NO IDEA HE WAS NEVER suppose to perform just appear, that was an honor for what he did do
I told the people I came to give them their monies worth but I promise it was innocent i was just energized & ready to rock.
With all that said I want to say this I LOVE R KELLY & I apologize for those choice of words You are such a man of power & wisdom
Fantasia seems to be in a better space than a few years ago. Back in July of 2010, Fantasia was caught up in a media storm over her personal life and she took to her twitter to announce that she would be leaving twitter for good because of a few hurtful things that people were saying to her online.
