Remember when Fantasia said she couldn't read? Well, she's now saying that everyone took it too literally. I mean, she did say that she had trouble reading the song on "American Idol" didn't she?
She said, "I dropped out of school in the ninth grade, and when I said I had trouble reading, they took it that I couldn't read at all. I knew the basics, but some words that were unfamiliar, I couldn't figure them out."
Fanny can read now and is making her Broadway debut this month in "The Color Purple" on Broadway.
In a related story, did you know that one-third of Washington DC can't READ?! WTF? George Bush falls in that one-third, right?
