Ashanti's quotes

  • I'm not trying to not do music. There's just a feeling when you create a hot record and have people fall in love with your record. There's nothing like that feeling.
  • I am not a good decision maker; that's one of the things I don't like about myself.
  • It's so important to never limit yourself, to find yourself in a box.
  • I have always been able to write on the spot. It is a talent that I guess comes naturally.
  • I also like different records of mine for creative purposes and metaphorically wise.
  • When people (talk trash) about you, you have to keep it moving, keep the records hot and keep your head up.
  • Music comes from the soul. It's a way to express yourself, so we always, always need to save the music.
  • [on Honey Boo Boo] Honey Boo Boo is a handful, baby. She says what she wants to say, does what she wants to do. Ive only seen, like, snippets, like one or two or three, you know, little shots of her, but yeah, shes a handful, baby.
  • Broadway is one of the hardest things I've ever done.
  • I have a tremendous amount of respect for military families. To have to worry about your loved ones and still try and live a normal life is extremely hard.
  • A New Year's resolution that I can never keep? To be able to make decisions. Every year I'm like, "You're going to focus, you're going to make decisions in less than two hours. It has to be done." And it never happens.
  • It is a fool's sheep that breaks loose twice.
  • I think my motto is to always remain focused on what it is that you're trying to accomplish.
