Fantasia Barrino Blasts the Grammys
Singer Fantasia Barrino is upset because says she was left out of the Grammy tribute to her idol Aretha Franklin. INSIDE EDITION has the scoop.
One of the most memorable moments of the Grammy's was the tribute to ailing Aretha Franklin.
Fantasia Barrino won a Grammy on Sunday for Best Female Vocal Performance, but was not there to accept the award. Barrino is furious she wasn't invited to participate in the tribute to her idol, so she says she boycotted the show.
Barrino called into BET's 106 & Park and explained to the hosts Rocsi and Terrence, how hurt she was.
"They were honoring someone who is my idol, which is Aretha Franklin. I felt like, you know, at the end of the day, I should have been on that stage," Barrino says.
Instead, Jennifer Hudson, Christina Aguilera, Florence Welch, Martina McBride and Yolanda Adams beautifully sang this tribute to Franklin.
