When All Else Fails…..

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.

  • http://www.nadiaramon.blogspot.com nga

    all these “singers” claiming they are retiring or going into acting simply mean that they aren’t selling like they use and their pride can’t take it. i thought you did for the love but i guess not.

    Yeah, so far her acting isn’t screaming Oscar/Emmy/Golden Globe potential… 😦

    BUT her voice was never on point, either and she hung in there this long.

  • Just_Wanna_Know

    That may be a smart move on her part. She may not be so confident on the sales of her upcoming CD. I wish her the best.

  • uhnonimus

    her new song is gabbage!!! she’s better off trying an alternate route. she looks fabulous though and she’s very down to earth

  • My son's parole officer said it's gonna be alright!

    Well maybe this will work for her. Can’t hate a girl for trying.

    I think Ashanti is a way better actor than a singer. And she acts way better than Beyonce!

    She may have been able to continue on the mic if she could sing.

    I beg to differ. There is nothing special about her acting.

    Hey Ashanti, how about building your skills up first before you try hanging with the big dogs.

    I mean all you ppl who are bashing ashanti so bad…have you heard her first single off the album? or are yall just talking out the side of their neck ..

  • Nicole

    Ashanti can’t sing, her acting is okay with a little acting classes maybe she will do better. But singing leave that for the real singers.

  • Lady Love

    Ashanti has really stepped her style game up. IT makes good business sense to diversify and getting behind the camera does allow more control over her career.

    Seems that Tyra, Ashanti and Beyonce are proving that brains and Beauty can co-exist.

  • %%%%%%%

    she betta call Jah rue …..MURDER

  • I'm Just Me

    I agree…hang it up Shanti….rather see the acting than hear the singing.

  • Ms. Bee

    It is time to wakeup everyone. How many roles are available for African-American actors/actresses in Hollywood? I know the answer, none! There are so many well established actresses (Nia Long, Regina King, Sanaa Lathan, etc) who barely receive the roles they should. Ashanti needs to find something else to do or make her momma get a job.

  • Southern Belle 225

    Um, she can’t sing or dance so this is the best thing she can do for herself at this point. She looks good but she can only ride those looks for so long until we’re bored. I’ve seen her acting and ur uh…….

    Behind the scenes ONLY PLEASE!!!!!

    “dam these dark skin sista they are becomming lighter by the day ….are they bleaching their skin…or its just too much make up that they use to cover her flaws..”

    NO – that comes from the black males undying desire for white ass and his blending of his race as a result of it.. Africans are not as light as we are.. The black male is responsible for that.. If it bothers you so then encourage your brethren to take some prode in their own instead of trying to perpetuate the species with every group on this planet..

    But, then again, what else is he good at?? All the black male can do is fukk and make babies.. Taking care of them, however, is a very different story……
