Ashanti is preparing for her new album and she is also shooting for the new season of Army Wives. Despite having a busy schedule, she still finds time to host Fuse News, which she produced. This week, she interviewed Nelly, her ex-boyfriend. They talked about a lot of things including Hip Hop, his Moses tattoo and most of all his preference in women.
When asked about the evolution of Hip Hop, Nelly answered:
“I think its changed as much as the rest of the world has changed. Obviously, when you look at mass media and everything that’s going on, I don’t think Hip Hop is an exception of not being affected by everything else. I’m not here to judge if it’s in a good situation or a bad situation because obviously hip hop is created for the youth. The youth have to make the same mistakes that we made, when we were young and growing up in it.”
When asked about his preference in women, he said:
“Oh word? Let’s talk about that. Bad breath is a deal breaker. Someone who lacks the confidence within themselves, to understand who they are. I won’t say that’s a deal breaker, but I definitely think we would at some point hit that wall, and a nice set of thighs always help.”
Why did he choose the Moses tattoo? He said:
“I love the story of Moses. I love the symbolism, being able to provide and lead your people to a better situation. Obviously, I’m not trying to compare myself to Moses, I definitely think the inspiration that you take from that, coming from nothing back home and being able to lead my people to a better pasture so to speak. My whole city.”
The interview was done professionally despite the fact that they have just broken up.
