12. ASHANTI AS HEATHER IN JOHN TUCKER MUST DIE (2006)Remember John Tucker Must Die? Shit, we barely do ourselves. The non-event of a teen comedy does hold up for one reason, though: It’s an excuse to reminisce about the good old days when Ashanti was one of the finest chicks in the R&B game.
Whatever happened to her, anyway? There was once a time when our daydreams featured Ashanti in all kinds of role-playing attire (perhaps inspired by her laughably miscast turn as a zombie killer/nurse in Resident Evil: Extinction). Strangely enough, we never thought to dress her in a cheerleader’s outfit, but here’s proof that such a get-up definitely becomes her.
Now, if you’ll excuse us, we have to catch up on some missed fantasy opportunities.
