Earlier in the week, platinum-selling R&B singer Ashanti was in Philly on a promo tour, promoting her new single “The Woman You Love” and upcoming album, entitled Braveheart. Ashanti stopped by Hot 107.9 radio station and chatted with ‘The Home Team’ about her new single, Busta Rhymes, the music industry and having her own label. The interview got a bite steamy when they started talking about sex. Ashanti shared that a man has to wait at least one year to get some of her goodies and answered if she likes it missionary or doggy style.
On if she feels like it’s about the scandal not the artist in today’s music
Controversy definitely sells. People sometimes are more interested in your personal business than your talent and what you’re doing. It’s a part of the business though and you just have to expect it.
On having her own record label Written Entertainment
I cut the checks. I write the checks. I cash the checks.
On how Busta Rhymes ended up on ‘The Woman You Love’
We were in the studio recording at Platinum Sounds in New York. I was in one room and Busta was in the other and you know when you finish your record you blast it all the way to the top and the speakers was rumbling in the studio. So Busta was next door and of course he busted in my session, “Yo! What is that?” and I’m like, “I’m thinking about putting this out.” He said, “I need to be on it. I’m on it.” He’s like, “This would drastically change our relationship if I’m not on this record.” We had a really good conversation and spoke about a lot of things. He’s kind of watched my career for a long time and he was very passionate about it.
Do you cook?
Absolutely, I get busy in the kitchen. I do the whole Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas –I do everything.
On sex on the first date
Nah, you’re waiting almost a year. It’s not going that easy.
Which one do you prefer on the vajayjay, landing strip or bare?
Landing strip, as long as it’s cute, nice and neat.
The one physical feature on a man that you have to have
You have to have nice lips. You have to have a nice mouth.
What’s an instant turn on?
You have to smell good. I like a good cologne; not like really strong.
Do you date outside your race?
I have. I had a Puerto Rican.
Missionary or doggy style?
How can I say this nicely and politically? I like to stand on top of things.
