Fantasia + Kendall Taylor Clarify What Submission Means To Them

Fantasia + Kendall Taylor Clarify What Submission Means To Them

Fantasia made on some comments on “The Breakfast Club” this week concerning relationships which sparked quite the online conversation afterward.

See, Fantasia stopped by the New York-based radio show to promote her new album “Sketchbook,” but she opened a bag of worms whant she said she submits to her husband.

Now the singer and her husband Kendall Taylor are trying to clarify about what Fantasia meant by saying she submits to Taylor seemed to get far more attention. Read on… has the latest from Fantasia and Kendall Taylor who took to the Gram to explain what she was speaking of when stating that she submits to Taylor.

Fantasia explains:

Most women are trying to be the leader. That’s why you can’t find a man!

FACTS! But NOT all women feel the same way. These days women are quick to cancel a man out since the #MeToo movement. But it’s that same movement which is why our society is stagnant and marriage is at an alltime low.

Anyways, she goes on to say:

You can’t be the king in the house. Fall back and be the queen and let your man lead the way.

She adds:

That’s why we bump heads. I feel like it’s a generational thing … You have to find how to submit. You can still be a queen. The queen plays a part. The king needs his queen. There’s certain things that he can’t see that we see.

Many called the R&B singer’s advice outdated and flat-out wrong. A lot of people also had a huge problem with the idea of a woman submitting to her man.

The backlash prompted Fantasia and Taylor to take to Instagram and decided to further explain that position (above).

Kendall Taylor explains:

Submission is supposed to be a beautiful song and dance between two lovers. What’s happened is, men have abused that gift … I submit daily to the most high. I stay in my scriptures, I continue to feed myself with things that help me build my character to reshape my perspective that was messed up in the streets … so I can come to my wife from a pure position.

He added:

So when I do that, and she sees me and witnesses over time that its an authentic demonstration, her heart is moved and softened and compelled to submit to me.

Taylor then said that Fantasia submitting to him doesn’t mean that he makes every household decision. Instead, they talk things out, considers her opinion, and then decides what’s best for the family.

Basically, Kendall is the man of the house, which many men don’t handle, and many women don’t understand.

Here is what he said:

I consider everything that’s on her heart.

Fantasia weighed in as well:

I think when women hear the word “submission,” where like ‘What? Submitting?’” she explained. “To piggyback off of what my husband said, it was what he demonstrated.

One woman checked Fantasia and Kendall for using the wrong terminology:

Submission means to subdue, I don’t see my relationships as a place for me to subdue any part of me. When I enter relationships I enter with expectation of you as you are. When I look at you I should see my team mate and my partner not my captain.

Another person weighed in, defending Fantasia and Kendall saying:

Seems like some of yall aren’t mature enough to receive this message. Submission to the right man isn’t demeaning, it protects you & gives the relationship firm ground to stand on.

What do you feel? Do you agree with Fantasia or disagree?
