Instead Of Answering A Question About Nelly Inspiring Her New Album, Ashanti Asks ‘Who Said We Had A Relationship?’
Back in December, we reported on the rumored split between Ashanti and Nelly. Not even one month later, candid boo-loving shots of Nelly and video vixen/model Lashontae Heckard started to surface. Nelly even began showing up to events with Tae on his arm. After years of both Nelly and Ashanti ridiculously denying their involvement with each other, it seems that we may finally get some insight into their relationship. In a recent interview with Sway In the Morning, Ashanti discussed her upcoming album and even hinted that some of the tracks would be about Nelly. Check out some of what she had to say.
On whether or not songs about her experiences with Nelly will appear on the album:
“Who said we had a relationship? [breaks into a fit of laughter] The name of the album is Braveheart. I’ve been recording for a couple of months now. There’s a lot of heartfelt records on there. I think everybody can relate. I’ve been writing my records since I came out and it’s been from real life experiences [laughs] and that’s how people relate.”
On dating a celebrity again:
“I think what’s important is to find someone who you have things in common with. So whether you have a 9 to 5 or you’re in the industry or I don’t know, you’re into computers or you’re into doing nails, whatever it is, find someone that you’re kind of compatible with so that you guys kind of understand whatever facet of life you’re on.”
On wanting children:
“Let me tell you something, I’m going to have an army. I love kids. I think I wanna have like six. We’ll see what happens. I know I gotta get started. I got a couple more things to do first and then I’ll really starting thinking about it.”
While Ashanti didn’t come straight out and say that her new album will feature tracks about her “secret” relationship with Nelly, we hear her loud and clear. A couple of songs based on those real-life experiences sprinkled into her latest project could do a lot for her record sales, as inquiring minds would love to finally hear her discuss that relationship.
