Ashanti may join the growing number of recording artists that are hanging up the mic:
“Ashanti is considering ditching music for movies to be a full-time movie star. The multi-talented 27-year-old has already starred in Resident Evil, John Tucker Must Die and Coach Carter – and she reveals she is so hooked on Hollywood she wants to work behind the camera as well as in front of it. Ashanti says, ‘I’m always reading scripts. I’m even looking to get into some behind-the-scenes work. Maybe do some co-producing. It’s all about taking chances. You can’t be afraid to try something different.'”
Who’s truly committed to making music anymore? It seems like more and more rappers/singers are using it as a stepping stone to enter the world of Hollyweird. It’s like everyone who steps up to the mic thinks they can automatically act or some sh*t. We’re feeling Ashanti’s idea about getting “behind the scenes.” Based on her on-screen performances – it’s her best bet – seriously.
