Fantasia Fires on TGT


Over the weekend Fantasia opened for TGT at the Atlanta Civic Center and somewhere along the way things went left...

Apparently TGT [Tyrese Ginuwine and Tank] did not allow Fantasia and her band to get a sound  check before the show causing problems during their performance. 

Fantasia called TGT out without mentioning their names telling the crowd,
“My background singers say they can’t hear. See here’s the problem ATL and you know I’m gone keep it real, real, real. Sometimes we do shows with people and they allow to get our sound checks. Sometimes they don’t. But that just only lets me know one thing…and I’m gone keep that to myself. So we are not haters. We like to perform with people. But sometimes they don’t like to perform with us.”
But that's not the worst of it. During the next song the background singers mics were cut altogether and Fantasia walked off the stage.

It just seems like ratchet, low budget shit follows this stanky looking hoodrat everywhere, lol. SMH!!!!!

When I first heard this I thought "why the hell is Fantasia opening for TGT?" Apparently she was a guest and the audience was mostly there for her, after her performance most people left out. Guess TGT felt a way about that.....

I've seen her live, she's no joke. Those background singers can sang too. She features them in the show. Most singers wouldn't allow that. No comment on TGT.

Too many drama queens both male and female in this mix. Luv u Fannie!!

I concur 11:18. backwards. Fannie should never be an opening act for anybody.

Why aren't they opening for her? Wtf

Um... Why was she opening for them?
Shouldn't they be opening for her?

Fantasia nor her management don't understand she could a lot bigger than she is... shes one of the few female r&b artist that are still relevant.

ITA, 11:38.

Truth be told, she aint no big star and is on the same C list level as those three dick sucking niggas she opened for.

I mean didn't this bitch once have a "venue" at an apartment complex? Come on yall, stop it. She is NOT no huge celeb. Granted F.A.G...I mean TGT aint either but yall acting like her place on the chitlin circuit intinerary should be first. WHY?

TGT is horrible, so I believe it. They were so unprofessional at Essence Festival that I wanted my money back for that night. It seemed like they don't practice, and all except Tyrese seemed to be drunk/high. And Tyrese seemed to be pissed and arrogant. I would never see them, not even for free.

KiKi said...

Yes like everybody else, I wonder why she is opening for them? :-/

They all are ratchet, ugly and stupid. All of them. Fantasia, Durrel, Elgin and Tyrese all suck.

Co-sign with Anon@11:33-- I just recently saw Fantasia at the Hampton Jazz Festival and as you said, she was NO joke. I also believe that the folks came to see her because she went on before Heads of State, and I don't know about anyone else but I left after Fantasia finished. TGT played on Sunday before Jill Scott.

Fantasia does allow her background singers to showcase their talent as well so I see no reason for her to fabricate such nonsense. I also co-sign with the poster that asked what TGT was doing HEADLINING. I'm still scratching my head tryna figure THAT one out.

Fanny said it was them, maybe it was the venue or one of their gatekeepers. Don't blame others because you sounded a hot mess, if you are professional you would have arrived extra early and made sure your shit was tight. Girl bye.

Tyrese's twitter response in 5,4,3,2,....

Y'all know Tyrese didn't want her on stage in the first place because she's dark skinned. He prolly prefers Mya.

Whether we understand why whoever was headlining or not is of no consequence. She AGREED to start for them and that means she KNOW DAMN WELL SHE AINT NO MAJOR STAR. Yall come on! Stop gassing this chick up, giving her more than what she is. Ok, she sings fairly decent, and? There are probably chicks at yall church that can blow just as fierce. SO WHAT? WTF. who is fantasia and why is it so shocking that she is starting for obsolete niggas like TGT? Aint she herself obsolete? When has she ever broke attendance records? Where is her FAN BASE that is loyal so she can headline HUGE venues? WELL? Oh yeah...she dont have ONE. Yall questioning shit is foolish. This heffa aint shit. Not hating, just stating.

@1:01

Obviously you have never worked on front of house production. This happens often when the headliner does not want the opening act to outshine them. They are given no rehearsal time in the space prior and no time for lighting/sound checks. The venue does not control the schedule for rehearsals and sound checks, the front of house director does. THAT person is almost always employed the headliner. I bet TGT had all day and they still sounded like shit.

I have worked soundcheck for Fantasia before and she was always generous to her opening acts. I can't speak for her personal life but when I worked with her she was very professional. She also gives her background singers plenty of time to sing during HER shows. Unlike some artists she understands that her sound is going to come 60% from the backup.

SMH. Why the fuck would TGT want to sabotage an equally insignificant singer? Damn. I would think they would want all to be good so folks can brag about the show and maybe they can just tour and make money off good reviews. WTF? Dont all these losers need money? I mean who the fuck would want to come to a show....see Tasia Mae's ugly ass mug bitching about the sound check...and everyone knows who she is throwing shade at...then them fairy princess pussy niggas come out...high as fuck...all off key and sweating. WTF? Who would want to see some unprofessional, ratchet shit like that? yeah, we know gaylanta is the QUEEN of all ratchet and faggotry but JUST FOR ONCE can something be a tab bit more professional and polished? DAMN.

Anonymous said...

Some of y'all are real stupid. Fanny may not sell as many records ad Rhiyawnna or Beyawnce but she definitely has the drawing power for live shows. People will come to see her! As for the messy queens that sabotaged her show we know it was because Fanny is an act that they can't follow...

@1:19 tell them!!! Those washed up niggas was hating pure and simple!

Im not a fantasia fan at all but wtf she opening up for them clowns? Lifes a bitch for real

Anonymous said...

@1:19, I have never worked in any production, but I would think that Fanny would had a requested to have a sound and whatever other check that she needed be required in her contract before she agreed to perform, since as she claim "that be hatin on me". IJS

I'm Still playing Fannie's first album and I have all the rest too. She can sang and I like her better then artists who use the media to make themselves seem more than they are. People are so stupid to believe just because u see someone all the time they're hot.

Anonymous said...

Bottom line: she aint a star and neither are the 3 little queens and this ratchet shit gives credence to what I and others on this blog are saying about this embarrassing and sad shit.

Anonymous said...

Fantasia is a star and she shouldn't be opening for these niggas period.

Anonymous said...

3:15 LMMFAO.

Star of the projects, maybe. But a legitimate star that is well respected and has power to fill ARENAS? mmmmmnah.

She is perfect for the chitlin circuit she's now playing.

Yeah..that's it! Star of the Chitlin Circuit.

I SAW TWO OUT OF THE THREE TGT MEMBERS AT HARTSFIELD. THEY WERE KICKING THE BACK OF VAN WHICH CONTAINED THERE LUGGAGE. THE DOOR WAS JAMMED SHUT. IT WAS HILARIOUS. THEY EVENTUALLY GOT THE DOOR OPEN AFTER APPROXIMATELY 20 MINUTES AND BOTTLED WATER FROM A KIND DELTA EMPLOYEE. SOUND CHECK THAT......LMAO!

Why do people throw so much shade at Fanny Mae? This girl can SANG! Her voice is beautiful. F a hating ass bitch!!!

Anonymous said...

@1:48

TELL EM! LOL! I swear this Rihammerheadshark and Beyawnce stans have infested RWS.

It is sad that people are compelled to be mean and hateful toward Fanny all because she isn't some light-skinned, bleached Barbie doll wannabe. Yes, she made some stupid decisions and can act like a hoodrat but she is a nice and sweet hoodrat. LOL! Regardless, this woman is powerfully talented. I would rather pay $100 to see Fanny sing than see Beyawnce scream and pussy-pop or Rihooker bleat and get a Pap Smear on stage. Fanny's voice gives me goosebumps!

@11:50 She has won every award an A list singer can win including a few of the top dogs Grammys. Hate is one thing but your Ignorant on top of being a bitter hater.

Exactly. I mean, not everybody has to like Fantasia but you got admit she is a rarity among what we have on the Top 40 charts today. She has the kind of voice where she doesn't need to be half-naked or she doesn't be special stage effects or a 100 back-up dancers. This girl may have some ratchet ways but she is an old school performer.

As for TGT, maybe they should give up the singing group and become strippers. I would love to see them strip for me! :-P LMAO!

This girl photographs beautifully, as long as she keeps those gawd-awful TATTOOs covered the hell up.

That's really a lovely photo of Fantasia.

TGT needs a gimmick to stir a reaction kinda like Brian McKnight and that adult mix tape .
They needs to do a white girl only tour. Or do one of those MILF/Cougar cruises where those old white chicks go down to the islands looking for Dexter St. jox.

Sounds like they did her a favor and she bit their feeding hands.

When does selling out stadiums make you star? Fantasia can blow, I know she is not everyone cup of tea but the woman has vocals. Just like Jill, Jennifer, Lil Mo, I could go on and on. These women may not be doing pop music for the masses buy they have a fan base. And sound check it schedule by the headliners, they set the schedule for the other performances, how long there set will be, what time they go on, etc. TGT ain't had their ish together when they were on a morning news show, so I'm pretty sure they have not got their act together.

TGT IS VERY FUCKING COCKY, ARROGANT, AND TOO FUCKING OLD TO BE IN AN ALL MALE BAND!! IF THEY CANT SELL ALBUMS BEING SOLO, WTF MAKES THEM THINK BEING IN AN BAND WILL MAKE IT BETTER? THEY ARE NOT GOING FAR, BECAUSE HELL THEY CANT EVEN GET ALONG ON AN FUCKING MORNING TALK SHOW! LIKE REALLY! I LOVE FANTASIA NEW ALBUM BTW!!
