Sean “Diddy” Combs sure knows how to pick em! No joke…he really does! Diddy has just selected my favorite pecan tan man, Nelly, as the new spokesmodel for Sean John. Ashanti….I admire you.
“I have known Nelly for many years and I really admire his work. To me, Nelly is the quintessential definition of the Sean John man. He has the attitude, the swagger, and most of all the physique that our customers can both aspire and relate to. And let’s be honest, all of the ladies out there are going to be thanking us for this campaign. The images are so strong; they speak for themselves. We are truly excited to welcome Nelly into the Sean John family.” (Source)
I have no comments…no comments at all! No…yes I do. I would like to personally thank Nelly for thanking this pic! Personally… 😉
Check out the official video for Ashanti’s second single from “Declaration.” The track was written by Ashanti and produced by the self-proclaimed mayor of Atlanta, Jermaine Dupri. This is a really cute song and I liked it better once I saw the video. Nelly is still hot…no matter how many kids he has.

Singer/Songwriter Ashanti recently interviewed with Sister2Sister magazine and told Jamie Foster Brown her ideas for marriage, kids and money:
The savvy star holds back on buying expensive treats and instead saves the millions she gets from her film and music careers.
She says, “I need, like, 12 (kids)… I love kids. I definitely want to get married… I’m so family oriented. I want the big wedding, I want the long marriage, I want kids. (But) I’ve got to stack my cheese a little bit more… I want to be able to bring my kids into the world nice and comfortable.” (Source)
Girl stop! We know if she marries Nelly, she’s already halfway there in the kid department! 🙂
