Ashanti Hits Up LL Cool J's Wife Simone's Trunk Show+Jay-Z, Diddy & More Are Music Visionaries of the Year

Ashanti headed out to Roslyn, NY for LL Cool J's wife, Simone Smith's, jewelry trunk show at Shag boutique last night. 

 

Pics of 'Shanti looking cute in her romper and hot pumps, plus pics of Jay-Z and Diddy handing out awards to music visionaries when you read on...

Well isn't that sweet.  Ashanti went out to support Simone Smith on her new jewelry business venture last night.  Simone showed off her brand new pieces she designed.  And Ashanti looked uber cute in this silver satiny romper and black and silver striped pumps.

Of course Simone had her hubby LL and kiddies there.  Cute fam!

And Ashanti tried on the pieces:

By the way, she chatted with fans on Us Weekly's twitter page recently about working on her 5th studio album.  She's living in L.A. now so her music will be influenced by that, and the first single will be out pretty soon. Not sure if that's the best idea.  But girl, do you.

Over at the exquisite Pierre Hotel in NYC, Jay-Z, his father-in-law Mathew Knowles, Diddy, and others were at the UJA Federation's 2011 Music Visionary Of The Year Award Luncheon to honor Jon Platt:

Jay looked nice kicking it with Randy Jackson.

His pappy-in-law Mat Knowles was there to:

And Diddy handed over the award to Mr. Platt:

Song writers Cri$tyle and Tricky Montgomery were there too.

Oh, hey Kevin Liles.

I worked with Ashanti on the

I worked with Ashanti on the "Baby,baby,baby" video. It was taped in Bel-Air. She is/was very, very pretty in person. Her hair was very thick. I think it is just the hairstyle. When black women want their hair to look smooth and sleek. We sometime use hair gel and Dax, Dax is a very thick hair wax. I think that is what is making her hair look thin. She is no where near bald headed or have thin edges. She is very pretty, she looked like a baby doll and she is very short and down to earth.

I think LL's wife Simone,

I think LL's wife Simone, battled a rare form of bone cancer recently. My family member went through breast cancer and the chemo caused her to gain a lot of weight and go totally bald. With loosing a breast as well you can only imagine how this messed with her mind and self esteem among other things. It's great to see cancer survivors recovered and LIVING life! Sometimes we rush to make "joke comments" without thinking. I think she looks great after being through such an ordeal. From here on it's only uphill!

so you're endorsing cheating and the destruction of a marriage, all for the sake of looks (or what you perceive to be beautiful)? Grow up and realize what's important in life! Clearly LL has…

I think Ashanti is a cute girl and wish her luck. I just didn't really feel her attitude when she was on MTV's Show....Punked. Her and her mom both came off really stank with diva attitudes.

I thought I was the only one

I thought I was the only one that saw that episode. That's when I stopped liking her. She was acting a fool before they even started fully playing the prank on her. She has a pretty smile, but her attitude is really stank (intentionally spelt that way for emphasis).

The songwriter young lady (?)

The songwriter young lady (?) was trying way too hard. Too many statement pieces speaking all at the same time and that's my nicer version of what I wanted to say. Jay-Z even (with the open shirt) and Kevin Liles suits were nice. But Randy Jackson, what da hell you got on DOGG, lol.

Ummmm Cry$tal, it seemed as though it was a slightly more toned down event, not a trip to the club. I have no issues with the short, tight and see through, but certain events require a bit more class.
