The Canadian Press reports that Ashanti has been defending the Herbal Essence shampoo and conditioner which were strategically placed in her ‘Only U’ video, since she is a spokeswoman for the company. “It was a shower scene. You know, you have shampoo and conditioner in the shower,” Ashanti reasoned. “When we first had the meeting and I got the whole deal with Herbal Essence… my video was coming out right after, so it made sense.” David Dunne, a professor at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, is concerned about The Inc singer’s move. “I think – at the extreme – it kind of turns the music into a jingle,” he said.
