Ashanti Visits Access Hollywood; Talks Label Drama, Beyonce & More

Published: Tuesday 31st Jan 2012 by Sam

Ashanti brought her New York hustle to LA today when she stopped by Access Hollywood.

The singer, who is now signed to her own imprint Written Entertainment, chatted it up about going independent, the politics at a major label, her new single ‘The Woman You Love’, Beyonce’s new baby, and more.

Check out what Ms. Douglas had to say after the jump…

Great interview.

Her hustle, poise, and eloquence are warming. We hope she can match these with great material on the as yet untitled album.

Your thoughts?

  2. Eddie January 31, 2012

    Um, where did she talk about Beyoncé at?

    You wasted 4 minutes and 46 seconds of my life to watch this flop.

  3. Carl Neufville January 31, 2012

    Where did she talk about Bey? Cos that’s the only reason I watched this.

  4. Ashantis#1 January 31, 2012

    Great interview she looks so good. And btw Beyonce’s name isnt mentioned once so you can stop with all that

  5. Mrfalsettovoice January 31, 2012

    I guess I understand when you’re talking about Jay, you’re talking about Bey because they are one but I only clicked to hear Ashanti specifically talking about Beyonce.

  6. Mrfalsettovoice January 31, 2012

    False advertisement.

  7. josh January 31, 2012

    “False advertisement”- hahaha
    haha Beyonce fans who wanted to see bey or hear her talk about bey, just watch the video from first comment, its all Beyonce. Get your beyonce fix,
    😉

  8. Nahjee January 31, 2012

    I notice just by reading these comments only reason people click on this post is because they saw beyonce name

    Which means Ashanti is irrelevant I knew it lol

  9. Teyah January 31, 2012

    She’s more delusional than I thought. She isn’t gonna get anymore smash hits, especially since she’s signed to an Indie label. Cheers to another flop album from Ashanti!

  10. Teyah January 31, 2012

    Oh and I only came on this post because it said she talks about Beyonce, which clearly she didn’t! lol

  11. Shane January 31, 2012

    All you Beyonce fans are thirsty delusional b******. It’s sickening . Ashanti don’t give 2 shits about that camel family. The Woman You Love now on iTunes. 🙂 #TeamAshanti

  12. YOOSONDALOOSE January 31, 2012

    She needs to make sure she keeps promoting, come on Shantiiii!

  13. James January 31, 2012

    F*** beyonce damn y’all need to hop off I’m sure beyonce don’t care about y’all n*****

  14. Rebecca January 31, 2012

    She doesn’t eat fried/fast foods? That’s a damn lie!! No offense but her thighs are too big for her not to be eating something fattening! Healthy my ass!!

  15. Brina January 31, 2012

    Good Interview, Can’t wait for the album!!! Ashanti taking control now that’s wassup!!:) Proud of Shan!!:)

  16. Iluvmusic January 31, 2012

    @REBECCA Ashahti is far from fat. She probably weights less than you. But anyone who came hear just to see if she talked about Bey is very sick in the head. If you “don’t like her” or she a “flop” then don’t click on anything about her. Anyway I can’t wait for her to release more music that she created herself. Get that check from your own record label on top of your publishing girl.

    These are artists are dumb if they are only concerned about itunes. Hit songs are huge, but album sales are most important. Itunes is a small small portion of album sales. She needs her album in the stores, the phyical copies. Those count the most. Itunes album sales are rarely big the first wk, they don’t carry to much weight. Alot of people just cherry pick cheap singles. It’s gonna be hard for her, but if she gets the hits then she’ll be good.

  18. Bey Fan… January 31, 2012

    I like Ashanti…. But to have me search for this interview and for her not to talk about Bey….well TGJ Im upset….LOL.

    Still good interview tho

  19. Erik January 31, 2012

    @TheMan she IS releasing the album in stores. That’s what the distributor E1 is for. I’m sure the deal with Itunes is to ensure that she benefits from ANY sales she may get from it and to ensure a nice profit in-case she should have a big digital single.. or multiple.

  20. Rebecca January 31, 2012

    @ILuvMusic I never said she was fat. I said there’s no way she’s not eating anything fattening b/c her thighs are so big. But ok. Good luck to her on her new album tho.

    Use Beyonce name in all ways to get readers. We see you TGJ. I see Beyonce ratings year end will be high cause she ain’t no where but her name is everywhere. Not mad. Got to keep that power

    @shane Ashanti don’t give two f**** about the camel family but she was front line to the 40/40 club licking the camel’s ass. ummmm
