WATCH: Toni Braxton Wants to Play a Lesbian On Screen
Toni Braxton, eight-time Grammy-Award winner, told theGrio’s Chris Witherspoon that she no longer wants to record new music and will now focus on acting.
“For what I do I have to love it. I have to feel that excitement and it’s gone,” Braxton confessed. “I’m just not going to do any albums anymore; maybe touring occasionally here and there because I love performing, but not as much as I did in the past. But no new projects.”
“I would like to play a lesbian,” she said. “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. Not a lipstick lesbian, either.”
We’re loving her willingness to lock lips with another woman on-screen. Here’s to hoping her proclamation leads to more Black lesbian depictions in Hollywood. (We won’t hold our breath.)
