I heard she flipped out when her record company described her as a tweeting coon-bird. Braxton stated that she has exercised all her life to increase the girth of her calfs and thighs and doesn't allow any comparisons to birds.
The music business is for the young...and those who can't sing.
I don't blame her - she hasn't had a hit album or song since 2000, and there's not much money in the music industry now anyway unless you're willing to tour constantly, which is tiresome. No point in continuing to record albums if nobody's going to buy them.

Toni needs a boyfriend, then she'd have a hit song.
Toni Braxton Says She's Retiring From Music But Wants To Play A Lesbian On Screen
[quote]"I would like to play a lesbian,” she revealed. “I don’t know why. And do a whole make-out scene and the whole thing: just something completely different than people would expect from me."
Funny that now that her career has dried up that she wants to play one, but when their were lesbian rumors about her back in the 90's, she did everything she could to distance herself from the rumors.
Oh well, what's new? Just another has-been running to the gays for an audience now that the straights are bored with her.
Toni please. That's my girl and all, but her ass knows the only people who were aware that she was still recording were those who happened to see her latest albums in the $2 bins at CVS and Walgreens.
She's not! She has reunited with Babyface for another album, though this could be her last. She's doing with the albums what Cher does with touring lol
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
