Fantasia on Overdose: I Knew Exactly What I Was Doing

Fantasia has opened up about her overdose earlier this month…and she says that the incident was no accident.

“I didn’t have any fight in me. I didn’t care about anything. I just wanted out,” the 26-year-old singer told VH1 (via People). “At that moment, I wanted out. I wanted it to be over with – all of it, all of that s—.”

A new Behind The Music featuring Fantasia will air this Tuesday (August 24) at 9/8c – the same day that her new album, Back to Me, comes out.

“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,” Fantasia continued. “I knew exactly what I was doing. You can’t accidentally take a whole bottle of pills.”
