Sooo, do you want the good news or the bad news first..? The good news is that despite the fact you haven’t heard her name in roughly eight years, Ashanti is still as fabulous as you remember.

The bad news is that she had a really nasty breakup with Nelly, which isn’t great… Oh, also, she’s dealing with a stalker, so that kinda sucks…

But she does have a booty that puts Kim Kardashian’s butt to shame, so she’s got that going for her, which is nice…

Ashanti rocks denim-on-denim in NYC on March 12.

The 34-year-old (crazy, right?!) appeared on ‘The Meredith Vieira Show’ earlier today, March 13, and opened up about calling it quits with the ‘Hot in Herre’ singer, 40, last year after nearly a decade together.

“I think sometimes when people have their own insecurities it allows them to act out of character. I’ve been betrayed,” she said.

“Again, you just have to grow, you have to grow up and accept responsibilities for the things that you do. I’m not a big fan of people being cowards. I think it’s really important to know yourself and understand what you want and get it. I’m in a different place right now.”

The ‘Foolish’ singer also addressed her stalker, Devar Hurd, who first harassed her family in 2003, before eventually being arrested in 2009.

“It’s not fun, it’s a little kooky,” she told Meredith.

“It’s very annoying to continue to take off from what I have to do with work for court and stuff. I think we have to go back to court again this month and I am not thrilled at all.”

She may have taken some time off, but it looks like Ashanti really has her hands full at the moment — we can’t wait to see what’s next!
