Ashanti in Hawaii

Singer Ashanti was spotted enjoying a beautiful sunny day in Hawaii on Tuesday. The 37-year-old singer is on a working vacay with rapper Ja Rule with whom she enjoyed #1 chart success with the single "Always On Time" in 2001.

  • free

    i used to just do the breast but don't they cost almost the same d*mn amount as a whole turkey? something made me switch back to the whole turkey. i may try to make stock this year.

  • Akhenaton

    i would marry her

  • IntroSpective

    Ashanti looks good for her age ??????

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    No she doesn't. I don't think she wants any and if not nothing is wrong with that.?

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Ashanti body has always been on point one of the best in the business.

  • Ticklegirl

    I never understood why they are the same price!!?? It’s better to just buy the whole turkey and have the butcher cut for you and freeze the rest I guess.

  • Ticklegirl

    My ??s are with you lol

  • bemetoo

    Word around town Ashanti has a dingy leaky pawssie

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Bawdy Goals...

  • bemetoo

    Yea she had more than 1 hit I always believe the aaliyah death contributed to her success. How because aaliyah left a void in the music game ..the needed another long hair caramel light brown unique name WITH A MEANING chick..enter ASHANTI

  • Kayke

    I think she just signed with Diddy and now we are going to see her everywhere. Including that stunt about "I ain't no pH ok king stripper" while she pretends to be one of my stage.

  • KHJ2016

    She hasn't had a hit since 2001 (16 years ago) and the paps just happen to be on the beach? She's relevant, why?

  • You Could Never


  • You Could Never

    Good bc from what I hear, most women want to. She is just waiting for someone to ask maybe.

  • hottlanta

    Your address is _______________________________.

  • You Could Never

    THIS! it IS kinda ridiculous. But they areso damn yummy. We have a huge Butterball plant in our area and the corporate we luck up and get mad coupons. Still the same price wise in the end tho. You right

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Yes she looks nice but 37 isn't old..She just turned 37 last month. She's still in her prime.

  • JRock

    Wow. She never could sing and I didn't think she was still trying to sing. I thought she was a professional vacationer vacationing on coins earned by tricking off old men in Dubai and the Honduras. Huh. Go figure.

  • xenaD

    It did seem to be a lil too staged!... They cut that music a lil bit too fast and the way the money was being thrown even the front row of the audience saying but she’s acting like it! ??
    I just felt like that was apart of the show

  • Tammie Reed



    You look good girl. Do you!!!

  • JRock

    37 my foot. She was 37 thirty-seven years ago.

  • TMW

    I like her and Ja Rule’s song “Helpless” on the Hamilton mixtape.

  • xenaD

    Mostly the same but add some potato and macaroni (tuna) salad, a few pies and some desserts
    And this year it’s not just one person cooking everyone is bringing a dish (this is a new thing, we all know how to cook but we are all used to cooking big for the whole family... so I know there will be a lot of food)
    And I can’t wait... I’ve been starving the last 5 days
    Bye bye okras and vinegar, hellllloo thanksgiving
    Btw My family is huuge ??

  • ShWa

    She looks great!

  • Ryan

    She looks damn good. No complaints from me

  • Quitedeliteful

    Ashanti looks good. I'm glad to hear she's collaborating with JaRule. They were always good together....

  • Indies beauty

    Love Ashanti. She was so sweet when she hosted the real. Few years back, she surprised a make a wish candidate who was a super fan. Ashanti gave her a necklace or something and the girl ended up living past her life expectancy. She kept the jewlery all these years and surprised Ashanti, her reaction was so genuine.

  • IAmLegend
  • V Dubb

    Folks are on that Get Thick 2000 formula. Ok den

  • Sarah7

    I have to give to Ashanti. At least her body looks natural.

  • ?Royalty?

    Macaroni and cheese, candied yams, cheddar biscuits & cinnamon pumpkin squares with cream cheese frosting.


    Ashanti looks great but she been that way for awhile but it took people a long time to notice. lol

  • IAmLegend
  • Karen Brady

    sexy bish.

  • Ni Ni

    Jenie, i lmao @ this bird when i read that. She looking like a stripper, doing stripper moves, and got offended when she got treated like one. Hell the real strippers ought to be upset ?.


    Body Goalssssssssss

  • Trace da Ace

    Ok...dont see the meaning of this post unless she and Ja Rule are coming out with NEW music...not mess from over 10 years ago. I never thought that she could sing.....she cute and all but vocals are on zero. I am happy she is finally getting back out there, but I'm afraid she has missed her time....with singers like Beyonce, Rihanna and such...I dont think she can compete...or even be in the same lane. #noshade

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile when I saw that... I was like what in thee entire hell.... And stopped singing chile.... Not that you could hear her screeching anyways ??? doing a lap dance nah ... That's what you supposed to do during a lap dance ....throw money ....

  • ladyinred

    She is so gorgeous. This is literally what I'm going for with body workouts

  • AHardAct2Follow

    Take no prisoners, Ashanti! Sheeeeesh!

  • teather

    TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU. All she ever sang was the word baby over and over and over again. She's a one hit wonder at best, along with J. Wish them the best. An artist just wants to do their art. It's sad really that everyone can't be THE one. but she's not.

  • JRock

    How do you make cinnamon pumpkin squares and do you use a brownie pan? They sound delicious.

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Trace da Ace

    YASSSS!!!! I also agree with you!! Its like washed up "artists" and I use that loosely because just because you can "sang" does not make you an artist....but I feel like when they start posting half nude pics instead of new that point the "artistry" turns into "thotism".... I wish them both well too...with other ventures.

  • starbright9449

    She writes for other artists as well.

  • starbright9449

    Ashanti's body is lit!!! You praise Ashanti but called Rih fat smh. They're both thick. Well Rih has lost some weight but I like her thick the way she was during her rude boy days. Ashanti got that muscle!!!

  • ?Royalty?

    Yes. I stole my recipe from Martha Stewart the first time I made them, but I just used the Betty Crickets Pumpkin Spice bar mix today.

    Very good either way.

  • Coy little wink

    I need that cover up...I'd wear that around my man in the crib

  • Malcom Flex

    Why don't black people SWIM?! Got dang! Always scared to swim or get hair wet.

  • Kimberly King

    I was literally just thinking the same thing! Wear it around his crib and go at it like animals later on lol

  • Keepin’IT100

    His wife is ok with this???

  • AnastasYah

    That's 98% of women so she's not alone!

  • The Last Word

    Somewhere John Carter is looking for an opportunity to get back at it.

  • BrittBrat2005
