Fantasia calls her rise to fame and fortune a blessing. "[I look at] where I come from and my past and some of the things that I did in my past, and I look now and I say, 'Wow, you can't tell me God ain't good," she says.
After going from having very little money to having a lot of money very quickly, Fantasia says life got "a little crazy" at first. "Everybody expects so much and wants so much," she says. But Fantasia, now 23, says she has learned how to say no with the support of her mother and grandmother.
