Fantasia Says She Was 'Overloaded' in First Interview Since Overdose
"I think I was overloaded with everything, with carrying six years of so much," Barrino told Robin Roberts in her first major media appearance since the suicide attempt. "I always take a licking and keep on ticking...it just became heavy for me to the point that I just wanted to be away from the noise."

She cited drama and criticism she faced at "Idol" during its 2004 season, her being without management, going through a foreclosure and personal trust issues as factors. Barrino also mentioned her relationship with a married man as a contributing factor. She said she has been working with a life coach who has been helping her cope with her issues.
Fantasia's new album, "Back to Me," is out today (Aug. 24).
