Ashanti was spotted earlier this week looking nothing less than amazing in a navy blue bodycon Michael Costello dress and Rockstud Sling-back Valentino pumps ($995) while on her way to ABC’s The View.
While promoting her new Christmas album on Hot 97′s Morning Show, Ashanti opened up about her past relationship with Nelly. The singer, whose been working on several projects including a collaboration with Target, discussed Nelly’s constant beef with his new flame’s exes.
“What can I say? Why are the boyfriends mad? Me personally, I go after the person that’s supposed to be loyal to me,” she replied. _______READMORE
Have you seen Ashanti lately? Her body looks amazing!
Now, we’ve always known the singer had a pair of thick thighs but her waist-thigh radio is looking very impressive. Maybe, she’s been working out or she’s gained weight in the right places.
Shani showed off her banging body, early this morning, while frolicking in a Las Vegas pool. But that’s not all.
The images are also sparking rumors of a Floyd Mayweather union. Yup, you’ve read that right. And so, the plot thickens in this quartet of Nelly, Shantel Jackson, Floyd and Ashanti.
Nelly is still feeling salty over Floyd Mayweather dissing ex-fiancee, Shantel Jackson (Nelly’s rumored new beau photoed with him above) and accusing him of breaking the guy code of not dating a friend’s ex.
Although the rapper has already addressed the boxer and insists they’d never really been friends (Read HERE), Nelly still felt the need take things one step further in a diss track titled, “Thanks to my ex.”
Ashanti wowed fans in this beautiful Michael Costello black shimmery gown at the Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley rematch fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, over the weekend.
The songstress was on hand to perform the National Anthem and did an amazing job we might add. Watch the performance below and tell us what you think.
Pacquiao won by the way.
During a recent interview while promoting new album, ‘Braveheart,’ Ashanti was asked whether there had ever been rivalry between herself and Beyonce, considering the two ladies started their solo careers at the same time.
Although Bey had already attained success with ‘Destiny’s Child,’ in the early 2000′s, Ashanti was the leading lady in the Hip Hop and R&B world. In fact, she was doing better than Bey at the time.
“Everyone wants to be the best right? Who doesn’t? It’s a competitive business, but I was rooting for her,” Ashanti recalled. “I just think we did two different types of music. It was a friendly competition, from my end.”
Well, what a difference a few months make. Wasn’t it just last October when we spotted Nelly and Ashanti celebrating her birthday? Well, that may all be over. After dating for about 8 years the couple have called it quits! Although this isn’t the first time the couple have been rumored to have broken up, this time, Nelly has been spending quite some time with actress Tae Heckard. Here’s a photo Tae posted via Instagram of herself and Nelly smoking some trees. She writes, “N*ggas sswweeaarrr it’s medicinal. Pull out yo prescription then…-_-”
Get a better look of Tae below. She’s actually quite a looker.
A new single titled “Woman To Woman” from Keyshia Cole has just hit the net. The single also features singer Ashanti and will be featured on Keyshia’s forthcoming album of the same name, ‘Woman To Woman’. Although the collaboration between the two women seemed uncanny at first one listen and you’ll know why it works so perfectly. Check it out below.
The lovely Ashanti celebrated her birthday over the weekend, turning 32 on October 13th. The singer was even thrown a surprise birthday dinner by rapper boyfriend Nelly and sister Shia.
They were joined by friends T.I. and Tiny to kick off the celebration.
The beautiful Ashanti stopped by Fuse TV earlier in the week for the tapping of an interview we’ve yet to see. What caught our eye however is how gorgeous she looked! Check out the below photo she shared on instagram. We’re loving the outfits and accessories.

I’m not quite sure if the above photo is what started the rumor but Ashanti, seen with the guys of The Black Eyes Peas sands lead singer Fergie, is rumored to be the singer’s replacement.
The photo was taken about two weeks ago according to Ashanti’s tweeter updates. She wrote, “Had a blast with the peas last night! #Global #Philippines”. Not much information there.
Several weeks ago, The Peas announced they were taking a break and almost immediately rumors followed, suggesting Fergie wanted to leave the group.
Adding further feul to the gossip mills, earlier in the week when asked about focusing more of her time on her marriage, the singer told E! News, “I’m excited for that.” She also added, “I have my footwear collection and my fragrance, my husband (actor Josh Duhamel), and football and many other things in my head.” When asked about baby, she said, “Possibly!”
In a separate interview fellow band mate Taboo added, “We have to respect Ferg. Ferg is our sister. She definitely wants to have a family, and we’re happy for her.” He added, “You can’t not respect people’s wishes. As our sister, we have to give her space.”
I can certainly understand Fergie’s wishes to focus on her marriage and possibly start a family. As for Ashanti as her replacement, hmmm….. I’m not really convinced. We shall see.
The Long Island native turns 31 today!
The singer got her rise to fame back in 2002 with hit single “Foolish”. Her debut album even made history garnering her the highest selling debut by a single artist at the time. Simply titled ‘Ashanti’ sold 503,000 units in its first week.
Currently working on several projects, the singer recently released single “Never Too Far Away” for the upcoming film ‘Dream House’. Hopefully an album will be sure to follow.
We want to wish Ms. Ashanti a happy Birthday today! Many many more!
