*By now we know that Fantasia is one of those celebrities with a controversial reputation, constantly in the tabloid for lord knows what. Recently, she was the target of social media attacks for her “homophobic” comments on Instagram.

In a recent interview with “Access Hollywood,” the singer chatted about her fourth studio album “Side Effects of You,” which drops April 23.

She says despite the constant criticism, she’s found peace.

“God put me here for a reason,” she said.

Admitting the repeated negativity has taken a toll on her spirit. But she’s found a way to deal with it all.

“When you look on TV or turn on the radio or all the newspapers and the magazines, it was always something negative, and no matter how many things I did that were positive that never came out, so that was the hardest for me at that time. Now I really don’t care anymore,” she said.

At this point, Fantasia said she’s done with all the drama and would like to focus on her family. Andin the meantime, the singer said she’s happy to help those she can.

“The people who go through things everyday, normal things, we’re all human. So for me, if I can just help 10 people and five don’t like it, as long as I have those 10, I’m good to go,” she said.
