Ashanti Gets Interviewed by Her Mom for Mother’s Day

Shia, Tina, and Ashanti Douglas

Ashanti gets it from her mama. Not only did the singer’s mother pass on her genes, she also instilled valuable qualities like independence and ambition in her superstar daughter.

The Grammy-winning songstress sat down with her mother/manager Tina Douglas for an interview with AOL Music in honor of Mother’s Day. But this time, it was Tina asking the questions. She quizzed Ashanti on the best advice she’s given and asked her to describe the women in her family. Even sister Shia joined in the fun.

“You always taught me to be a leader, not a follower,” said Ashanti, whose album BraveHeart is due in June. “As simple as it is, it has always stuck with me and I’m very grateful for that advice.”

Feel the love in the room.

    wait. who followed ashanti in “our generation”? um. that’s giving her way more credit than she deserves. ashanti was basically a fill in, in music.

    They all seem so close. Ashanti has always been so positive and always has good things to say about her daughter.

    I love momanger, Ashanti and Shia. Tina has always been a positive reinforcement in both Ashanti’s career and Shia’s life. You can tell her love isn’t generated by fame, but she really cares for the wellbeing of both of her daughters. Can’t wait for Braveheart to release!
