So she paid extra attention to making sure her baby hair looked nice in videos and in pictures. But of course, instead of asking her much about said album, the questions from Ebro Darden and Laura Styles were mostly about Nelly.Well, at least for the first seven minutes of the interview anyway.The singer gave a “final” answer on if she and Nelly will ever get back together, talked about how that relationship impacted her music (including the song “Never Should Have,” which she confirmed was about him), and how they had an amazing sex life.No, seriously, she touches on that with only the nervous Long Island-based laughter that Ashanti can (she’s so charming). Okay, so we were in a space where we were getting back cool.
We were going through whatever we were going through, but when I started recording it, we were okay. Like, we weren’t even speaking at all…regardless, I’m going to always have love for Irv.
Ashanti may have taken a step back from the music scene for a while, but the R&B diva has definitely had her hands full.
The 34-year-old star sat down with talk show host Meredith Vieira (airing tomorrow) to discuss two big things have affected her life recently—dealing with a longtime stalker and breaking up with fellow hip-hop performer Nelly."We were talking in the beginning of the show all you've been going through with this man, this stalker," Vieira began.
"The way you've handled it to me is very impressive.
This is a man, just to remind the audience, he started stalking you, your family really in 2003, 2009 he went to prison for a couple of years, has since come out and has continued the behavior."Ashanti responded, "It's not fun, it's a little kooky.
