‘I Said What I Said’: Fantasia Tells Women They Need To Submit To Their Men & Stop Trying To Be The Leader
Fantasia Barrino is a beloved soul singer. The American Idol winner charmed the world with her voice and authenticity. Along the way, people also fell in love with her journey. The once single mother broke into the spotlight alone and has tried over the years to create her own happily ever after.
She would eventually find that in Kendall Taylor. The pair wed in July 2015, and according to reports, they rushed down the aisle only three weeks after knowing each other. Not only did Taylor bring love into her life, but he became a driving force in her career as well.
During her 2019 tour, Barrino says her husband stepped up to the plate and helped her get all her business dealings in order so that she could have a smooth and successful run. Barrino claims that Taylor keeps a “kool-aid smile” on her face and sees the queen in her.
Fantasia stopped by The Breakfast a few years back and opened up about how she is able to find balance and peace in her marriage. According to Fantasia, a key component of their dynamic is her willingness to “submit” to Kendall. “We need more men to stand up and lead the way. Most women are trying to be the leader; that’s why you can’t find a man. You can’t be the king in the house.
Fall back and be the queen.” Fantasia believes that men are historically meant to lead the household and that too many women are fighting against that truth. Her husband responded in an IG Live where he said that submission is a “song and dance between two lovers.” Taylor believes men have abused that power and that it is not a “dominant spirit.” “First of all, that’s not love.” He says in his marriage, he submits to the most high.
The pair have not backed down in recent years. Fantasia and Taylor Kendall sat down with The MB Mag to take people further into their love and how they manage their home. A pregnant Fantasia says her choice of the word “submission” was taken out of context because she does not just let him do all the work. “I believe the woman is the neck and the man is the head.
The head can’t move without the neck. We do this thing together.” she told their interviewer. “I met somebody I felt I could submit to, I can’t be told what to do I am a strong woman.” She understands that people were upset but that she did not really care. “I have been talked about, I don’t get caught up in all that stuff. I said what I said, and I meant what I said.” Fantasia encourages women who feel what she said to “get in their word” and find a man who is in his word as well.
Fanny’s thought process echos that of another famous woman, Mo’Nique. Mo has been very vocal about letting her man be a “king” and “raising” her up. During a talk with Tamar Braxton, Mo’Nique expressed how too many women want to be independent and do not allow their men to be “men.” Braxton agreed and said that she feels it is “traditional” and how god intended.
