Ashanti Goes Poof!

While a little late to the game, former singer Ashanti has followed in the big-haired footsteps of "Jersey Shore" fashion icon Snooki, Olympian Johnny Weir and soul diva Janelle Monae ... and joined the Hollywood poof club.

Ashanti rocked her GTL style at an event in NYC this week.

Hopefully this trend will go poof soon enough too.
