Ashanti gained some serious weight over the holidays

This weekend, Ashanti shared a couple of pictures from her holidays and it looks like she managed to put some thickness on.

Still, to everybody’s surprise, everybody appreciated the singer’s new look. And this is quite surprising, considering how social media reacts when a female celebrity gains some pounds.

This is one of the images we’re talking about:

Back in June, Ashanti shared some similar picture and she looked really good. But somehow she still manages to do the same thing now, even with all those extra 25 pounds.

Lately, she has been seriously working on her acting, after guest-starring as herself in two “Mother, I’m At La Mirage” episodes, as well as “Something Desperate”. And she did quite a good job.

Now we’re just curious if she will pursue an acting career and leave singing behind!
