NEW YORK (AP) — Grammy-winning singer and Long Island native Ashanti has a new gig: tourism ambassador.

The R&B singer was introduced Tuesday at a news conference as one of nine ambassadors who will promote tourism in Nassau County on Long Island.

County Executive Thomas Suozzi placed an orange blazer with a tourism patch over her white dress at the event at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan, where 16 tourists were offered an all-expenses-paid tour of Nassau. Ashanti sang at Suozzi’s two mayoral inaugurals in her native Glen Cove.

The tourism campaign pitches Nassau as “The Island Next Door” and is targeted at visitors to the city.

Celebrity Mishaps: Kanye YOUR Late!

Over the weekend Kanye disappointed a lot of fans in Seattle at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. The crowd went crazy chanting “Kanye sucks” because his performance was delayed for nearly two hours. The show was set to start at 2:45 a.m. Sunday morning, but West didn’t take the main stage until 4:25 a.m. According according to the Associated Press. The holdup was blamed on problems setting up his elaborate stage set, which included an interplanetary landscape of a wavy black platform with a slanted floor in the middle and a video screen above. What killed fans the most is that Kanye didn’t even regard the issue on the delayed performance.
