    Fantasia admits to catching feelings about being left out of the Aretha tribute.

    It was supposed to be a celebratory night for Fantasia, who won Best Female R&B performance for her single “Bittersweet,” but the night couldn’t have been more bittersweet for her. Fantasia intentionally stayed home from the Grammys and she called into “106 & Park” to explain why she didn’t attend the awards show Sunday night.

    Last night they were honoring someone who is my idol, Aretha Franklin; and there is no way I could have sat there and not got the happy feet and wanting to jump on the mic because she is my favorite. So I felt like, you know, at the end of the day I should have been on that stage. So, I kind of did my own little thing last night.

    I have this feeling, like every year I go, I feel like they always look over some of the good singers that are still around. I’m not trying to be funny, but that’s just the way I felt.”

    Ummm, you feel that way too?!

    Tasia shouldn’t feel so bad, though. Ms. Franklin herself wasn’t even in attendance. I have the solution to make her feel better: Fantasia should go to Aretha’s house and stage her own tribute and post it up on YouTube. I’d watch it. You still rock in my eyes, boo!
