Ashanti is talented, fierce, and will defend herself when attacked by fans and rapper Joe Budden.
Budden had a field day with Ashanti who recently went viral after a fan confused her for a stripper and threw dollar bills at her while she performed.
The Love & Hip Hop: New York star said on his show that Ashanti is the one who provoked the insult because of her outfit.
Ashanti Confronts Joe Budden Over Stripper Comment
An embolden Ashanti appeared on the show and responded to Joe Budden by saying: “I had on a bodysuit with boots, which 90 percent of my peers wear, which we perform in. We are there to do a show, so that is what you wear.”
She continued to school the rapper who folded and said he was just joking.
He shared: “OK, time-out — we were joking. Who seriously thinks that you should have money thrown at you [because you were wearing a bodysuit]. What do you think we are f**king ignorant f**ks up here?”

During a concert in Hawaii, a female made it rain on Ashanti and she clapped back: “Yo, I am gonna need you to stop throwing that money. I am not a f**king stripper, OK?”
The venue’s owner, Dyamin Thomas, blasted Ashanti for taking on the concertgoer in a post that read: “WAIT Ashanti ain’t that you in your background video throwing money? And aren’t you giving a lap dance? Lmfao… she ain’t say nothing to me, but you are gonna pick on the small white boy lol my Dj?”
Ashanti Talks Her Love/Hate Relationship With Social Media
Ashanti originally appeared on Budden’s show to promote her new album and single “Say Less” and shared her thoughts on the impact of social media on her life by saying: “I think it’s awesome that with the press of a button, you can reach millions of people to let them know that you have music out or let them know that things are going on for people to get involved with you as an artist in your career and to take them along for your journey. But the bad thing is that you have millions of people that are judging and criticizing, and rumor can get started the same way.”
Ashanti should just focus on being her true self and ignore the naysayers.
