Nelly Gets Snappy About Ashanti & His "Cold Career" On The Breakfast Club + Rick Ross Stops By "Chelsea Lately"

Nelly's sexy self rolled into The Breakfast Club this morning to chat about why his career isn't on top of the game anymore and why he continues to stay mum about his girl Ashanti.  And he offered up some subtle threats to Charlamagne after getting grilled by him about his "cold career".   We've got the interview and highlights inside.  Plus, Rick Ross makes an appearance on "Chelsea Lately"....

Nelly's got his seventh studio album coming out this fall, M.O., so he's making his promo rounds.   And he's talking about why he stays mum on Ashanti, how he feels about not being #1 in the game, and more.

On beef with Flo Rida

Nelly says the song "Apple Bottom Jeans" was not originally his like people think, it was indeed Flo's. There's no beef with Flo even though it seems like the now bald rapper jacked his style. Nelly says he respects the fact Flo was a fan of his and made his own mark on music.

On his "cold career"

Charlamagne questioned him--several times--on how he felt about his career not being at the top like it used to be. Nelly got slightly offended and said that's his opinion. But a career has ups and downs--as long as you're around that's what matters.

On his relationship with Ashanti

"Like I said before, me and baby girl are real cool. It's not going to change until we want to change it."  Nelly said people think it's only his decision on whether or not they discuss their relationship publicly--it was a mutual decision.

On his ventures outside of music

Apple Bottom Jeans is still around with two stores in Dubai.  It's been around for 10 years and the only urban female clothing line around for that long.  He still owns Troop brand and just opened a school in St. Louis.  He's also making an appearance on Queen Latifah's upcoming CW music competition show "The Next".  He also may do the actual tv show "Househusbands" with Kevin Hart.  And he still has his part ownership of the Bobcats.

On loving "Love & Hip Hop ATL" and if he would work with Joseline

"You know what; I think it's made for TV. When people get upset about that show, I think they taking it seriously and there's nothing to be taken seriously about that show, it's entertainment. I tune in to laugh. I think Stevie J is made for television!"

"Yeah, I would [laugh and hang up if Stevie J asked me to work with Joseline.] I definitely would, but you know what, I'd tune in to watch him get on the phone and ask."


Check out the interview in full above.


And last night, while promoting his upcoming God Forgives, I Don't album, Rick Ross hopped on "Chelsea Lately" to chop it up with every rapper's fave blonde to flirt with. 

The two started off the convo about sex--of course.  Chelsea hilariously said she loves big black men.  And Ricky proposed an elopement--but said he wants to skip the paper work.  Chelsea said she's ready to upgrade from 50 Cent to Ricky Rozay.  Ha. 





I love Chelsea cuz she's

I love Chelsea cuz she's flippin halairious and sys what the f she wants to say. As far as Nelly "being cold" is concerned, you can't be "hot" forever, but he has an opportunity to get some nice records together and have another successful album. He's gonna have to have hot beats to get the younguns interested, but he's always gonna have a strong loyal fan base of women n white boys.

Nelly's music career is not

Nelly's music career is not cold. He has and will continue to make a name for himself in the music business. On Ashanti and Nelly keeping their relationship private.... I'm sorry but they aren't Jay-Z and Beyonce, nobody really cares that much. I'm a strong believer that if a man dates you for years and doesn't want to get married that he probably never will to you, but will to somebody else. Besides weren't there rumors not too long ago that he was dating Kelly Rowland?

Nelly and Ashanti are both

Nelly and Ashanti are both sex symbols and sometimes you earn or a keep a bigger fan base by being seen as single, also, the pressure from the media can kill a relationship, especially if they are public but not married, the bible thumpers come trash talking and will try to ruin your image...I think the decision to remain 'quiet' is the smartest thing a couple can do to keep the relationship solid...I can't see the video for Chelsea so I have no words for that

Chelsea loves it, ever since

Chelsea loves it, ever since she went black. I wont say she'll neva go back, but her ass is def back and forth.

Nelly is sexy as hell, but a

Nelly is sexy as hell, but a little on the delusional side. I think he forgot about Baby Phat when he said Apple Bottom was "the only urban female clothing line that's been around for 10 years." Baby Phat was created in1998 smh and who in Dubai, India is rocking Apple Bottoms?? I think the whole secret relationship choice with Ashanti was his idea and she went along with it so he considers that decision mutual. I think his style of rapping has come and gone but he should really start acting more, there's no money like movie money, plus we will never see him in a reality show. Rick Ross frightens me, between his eyes being cocked like an AK-47 and "Leaning Tower of Pisa" Louboutin sneakers and that awful pubic hair on his chin he calls a beard, he looks like a total creep, like he is the guy in the club dropping ruffies in girls drink and followiing them to the bathroom all night. Sorry, sad but true.
