Ashanti is featured in Rolling Stone’s Women in Rock issue. The singer talked about having her mother closely involved in her career saying, “No matter who is the CEO and no matter how much power and money they have, you can’t really break that bond with your mother. Only your mother can say, ‘No, you’re not wearing that outfit on MTV! I don’t care if the CEO says that it’s a good look!'” The Murder Inc. star gives props to Mary J. Blige saying, “She’s the one that made me wanna do it. She made the marriage between hip-hop and R&B, and she made it work. She opened up a brand-new lane.”
