These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question and answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?
Ashanti appeared on HuffPost Live on Tuesday to chat about her upcoming role on "Army Wives" and the new album she's recording. But we also snagged a brief #nofilter interview with the singer. Here's what she had to say.
Tell me how you feel about Honey Boo Boo.
Oh, my God. Honey Boo Boo is a handful, baby. She says what she wants to say, does what she wants to do. I've only seen, like, snippets, like one or two or three, you know, little shots of her, but yeah, she's a handful, baby.
Have you read "Fifty Shades of Grey"?
I haven't, and I feel like I'm the only person on the planet that hasn't read that, so I have to get it.
What's a New Year's resolution that you can never keep?
Let me see. A New Year's resolution that I can never keep? To be able to make decisions. Every year I'm like, "You're going to focus, you're going to make decisions in less than two hours. It has to be done." And it never happens.
If you were on death row, what would your last meal be?
I thought you was going to say the record label. I was like [laughs]. Let me see, if I was on death row, my last meal would be -- it would have to be a combination. I would have to have some jerk chicken rice on peas, then I'd have to have some Cuban baked chicken with onions, some barbecue, some cabbage, sweet potatoes and that Haagen-Dazs De Leche ice cream.
