Quotable: Fantasia Confirms Overdose Was A Suicide Attempt

“I didn’t have any fight in me. I didn’t care about anything. I just wanted out. At that moment, I wanted out. I wanted it to be over with – all of it, all of that s**t … I just sat in the closet and looked at the mirror and took all the pills in the bottle. I wanted to go to sleep and just be at peace. I knew exactly what I was doing. You can’t accidentally take a whole bottle of pills.”

– Fantasia Barrino tells VH1’s “Behind the Music” that her overdose earlier this month was not accidental and that she was trying to take her own life. So sad — I hope she gets the help she needs. Fantasia’s episode “Behind the Music” will air tomorrow night, the same day that her new album, Back to Me, is released. [People]
