Here’s a sneak peek of Ashanti’s interview with Page Six Magazine where she opens up about her career, future wedding plans and her respect for Rihanna:
On finding it hard to watch artists like Fergie and Rihanna fill her void:
“I’d hear a song on the radio and wish mine was next. But I respect a lot of the artists who’ve come along since I was out, especially Rihanna. She’s smart and she’s worked the business instead of having the business work her.”
Back in action now, Ashanti is even more driven, and not just with career. Having two children with her boyfriend and fellow artist Nelly, she says thoughts are turning to marriage.
“I’ve been planning my wedding in my head since I was a little girl, and it just keeps getting more elaborate. I’m a huge fan of the Caribbean, so if I don’t get married in New York, it would have to be on the beach.”
We’re assuming that when Page Six mentions the she and Nelly have two kids together, they’re referring to his son and daughter from a previous relationship But then again, she was unusually chubby at some point a few years back.
