Ashthon Jones: “Nobody Ever Got To Know The Real Me”

Newly eliminated Idol contestant, Ashthon Jones is doing the New York promo tour this week (sorry…I totally spaced on taping her Regis and Kelly appearance).  It wouldn’t be a NY tour without stopping by MTV to talk with Jim Cantiello.

In this clip, she talks about how difficult it was to shake the “diva” label on Idol.

“When J.Lo said it, I understood what she was talking about. You know how Patti LaBelle, Diana Ross, Whitney were divas but they were divas in a positive way? They were sweet and humble backstage, but when they got on the stage, they [showed] the world that they could do it, ” Jones told MTV News on Monday (March 14). “America didn’t think that, ” she laughed before sassily snapping her fingers. ” ‘Diva! Diva alert! … She thinks she’s all that!’ I was like, ‘Noooo!’ Nobody ever got to know the real me.”
