Fantasia insists she wants to do as much acting as possible in the hope she'll wow Washington.
She says, "I've been telling Denzel to call me. I believe y'all have been giving him the wrong number."
In The Simpsons, Fantasia will play a rival to Lisa Simpson in an American Idol-style singing competition.
She adds, "When you do The Simpsons, that's major. That's like a big-time cartoon that everybody watches. When they called me, I was like, 'Of course I'll do it!'"
She admits the role wasn't as easy as she thought it would be, because she had to cry on demand: "I'm singing up against Lisa and she wins. I was kind of hurt about it and I had to do this big crying scene and I was like, 'How am I going to cry?'
"I started having flashbacks of how my baby cried all the time when I'm at home, so it wasn't too hard."14/04/2005 02:52
