WENDY WILLIAMS SLAMS ASHANTI’S CAREER, CALLS HER AN ‘EXOTIC DANCER’December 5, 2017
The talk show host took issue with the “Foolish” singer for lashing out at fans for throwing money at her during a recent concert and yelling “I’m not a stripper.”
Ashanti became the subject of Wendy’s Hot Topics segment and tore into the 37-year-old R&B diva’s outfits and body of work.
“Ashanti, you are a fledgling artist at best. She’s 40-something years old at this point, nobody cares about her music—37, same difference,” Williams said. “And I didn’t call you a stripper, I called you an exotic dancer.”

The outspoken 53-year-old continued: “Ashanti, just take it for what it is: Nobody’s buying your music, nobody cares about your music. You’ve got a beautiful body and you’re using it to make your bones. And that is the fact, jack.”
Williams was triggered because Ashanti had also recently gone on rapper Joe Budden‘s show Everyday Struggle and got into a contentious discussion when he said she was called a stripper because of how she dresses. Oh no he didn’t!
Ashanti is currently promoting her new single “Say Less” featuring Ty Dolla $ign and will release her 6th studio album in 2018.
Was Wendy out of line? Or do you agree with her critique?
