Well isn’t this interesting.
As reported, a whose who of Hollywood was out in full force last night to celebrate Halloween. And with a multitude of different events taking place in parallel, it was a given that stars would run into one another.
Such was the case for Rihanna and Ashanti, who posed it up together at a party.
Intriguingly, besides a ensemble song for ‘Stand Up To Cancer’ back in 2008, the ladies paths have never crossed before. Unique given the similarities their careers have.
Indeed, Ashanti rose to prominence on Def Jam as part of a collective – Murder Inc / Rihanna is currently signed to the same label by way of Roc Nation. What’s more, Rih is routinely touted as a “rival” to the better-selling Beyonce, who once upon a time was the main chart-thorn in the side of Ashanti’s dominance. Clearly, much has changed since then – although Bey’s “step ahead, level above” status continues plague both ladies. Nonetheless, we digress…
Is it us or could both stars benefit from what the other has? Ashanti from Ms. Fenty’s ability to stay commercially relevant and Rihanna from Ashanti’s vocal strides? They should mingle more…
