Celebrity Mom Fantasia Barrino Bounces Back


The onetime American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino made a surprise apprearance in Las Vegas over the weekend.

In a dramatic turnaround for Barrino, who attempted suicide earlier this month, PEOPLE reports that the onetime American Idol champ grabbed a mic on Friday night, singing four songs at a nightclub in the Palms Casino and Resort.

“They thought I was finished, they thought I was done,” she told the audience, which reportedly included Demi Moore and Soleil Moon Frye. “I would never ever stop, I don’t care what no one says.”

She added, “I was in the hospital, but now I bounce back…Don’t ever let your haters stop you.”

Barrino’s album Back to Me was released Aug. 24.

I hope that earlier pregnancy rumors were just that – rumors.  Fantasia needs to focus on herself at this time and realize how talented she really is.
