hold up Cynique.... wait a minute here, you're saying that just because one likes an apple martini and can claim that the song that comes on that sends us in droves to the dance floor defines us as ghetto fabulous? Lawd have mercy... I've finally arrived.
As far as Fantasia's speaking ability and defining it as Ghettofabulous... She doesn't speak well but the environment from which she hails doesn't speak well. Have you ever been to High Point? Both white folk and black folk speak the same vernacular but we wouldn't call the white people ghettofabulous- more like poor white trash. When that is all you hear, that is what you emulate.
Diana, she was a good southern girl, Mr. Simon, Miss Paula, Mr. Randy... She goes to a school of excellence here in Georgia and it is among the top ranked schools in Georgia so English is spoken better at her school and the environment that she's in is conducive to that behavior. They both have the trade mark southern twang.
I don't think that Fantasia's lack of finesse makes her ghettofabulous it provides a growing opportunity for her if she is willing to take it.
Now that baby talk, whining she does.... thats a different story. That ain't ghetto either, that is just plain stupidity and hopefully that will be the first thing removed from her image as soon as she gets with an image consultant.
