Exclusive: Tamar Braxton Talks New Single, Album, & More!

Published: Monday 16th Jan 2012 by Sam

For years, the name ‘Braxton’ has been synomous with singer Toni.

Yet, after We tv series ‘Braxton Family Values’ hit it big, it’s Tamar who’s been on the lips of everyone and their mom.

The youngest of the Braxton clan, Tamar has been the show’s break-out star, etching words such as ‘dot com’, ‘dot org’, and ‘dot life’ into public consciousness. Now, the 34 year old hopes to etch herself into the favour of record-buyers, as she re-launches her solo career.

That Grape Juice TV‘s Patrick caught up with the singer at last week’s Los Angeles screening of ‘Braxton Family Values’. During their frank chat, Braxton dished on her forthcoming single, sound, and much more. As ever, Tamar was very much Tamar!

    Ummmmm. I initially liked Tamar – I don’t really care for her as an artist but as a TV personality she is ok. Her entire attitude is more outlandish this season and she is a bit rude and immature towards her sisters.

    I think shes making a mistake. Shes too into this hoodrat pop, pop it, drpo it, twist it, pick it up roll it thing.
    I think if she goes down that road performance wise its gna be a fail, eg her gladys tribute. Musically it might be good though.
    She needs to do whatever music she likes best but she also needs big vocal moments in there because thats what a lot of the BFV audience is looking for. Her singing in 4 notes is not interesting for anyone. Her voice is really the only thing she has going for her so she needs to focus on that no matter what musical style she goes for

    ROTFLMFAO!!!!!! PEOPLE CAN SAY WHAT THEY WANT ABOUT HER, BUT THE GIRL IS TALENTED AND FUN-NY!!!!!!!!!! LETS HEAR RIHANNA, CIARA, CASSIE, ETC TRY TO SING THE CHICK UNDER THE TABLE….OOPS! I FORGOT. THEY CAN’T!!!!!!!!!!!! #BOOM

  4. KELIS January 16, 2012

  5. LIL KIM January 16, 2012

    she sounds like she knows what shes doing becuase DANCE Music is in right now so she should def so a big pop/dance album,
    she should performs at gay pride in the summer for her fans

  6. mel January 16, 2012

    She is very talented BUT this hood pop crap isn’t going to do well, her performance at the Soul Train awards was horrible, if anything like that she’s NOT snatching anything!!!!!!

    She’s almost 36, she needs to do ballads or something. Hood pop are you serious?

  7. Bam Bam January 16, 2012

    She can sing but I will not buy her album simply can’t stand her attitude…….

    If Tamar was so great why is she just now releasing an album as a solo artist at 35. I think i remeber her releasing an album as a solo artist before and it was a fail. Tamar is good as a reality tv personality but as far as a singer my taste will pass on that.

  10. HotMama January 16, 2012

    Tamar is soo low budget!!! If she didn’t have a super rich husband who would be checking for her?! She is classless, has no humility, and she owns ignorance like no other. I like the Braxtons show however, she is too much to take. I can see why Toni has made it in the industry and she hasn’t. LOW budget, No class and treats people like crap and she has never sold a record…child please.

  11. HotMama January 16, 2012

    Tamar attitude sucks. And if anyone thinks this girls is gonna be the next big superstar then they need to thinbk again. Yes she may be talented but so are a lot a ppl. I think it’s going to be very hard for her to translate her abilities into sales and at the end of the day that’s what it’s all about. Please beleve it. Tamar is very fortunate to have a rich husband.

  12. Leo January 16, 2012

    she’s disgusting.

  13. BAA January 16, 2012

    Tamar can sing! I remember she tried solo success about a decade ago. The girl had a big voice just like Toni. I dont know if she still have it but i was so mad when she didnt pop off bac then lol. I can tell some people dont know anything about music because this isnt her first record.

  14. NICK January 16, 2012

    it is all for fun on the show, BUT please believe her 1st cd still gets played on my iPod, I love her as an artist-SHE CAN REALLY SANG!!! do not hate!

  15. RHI RHI IS QUEEN January 16, 2012

    LUV TAMAR.. I WILL DEF BE BUYING THE ALBUM. FUNNY HOW ALL THE PEOPLE THAT CLAIM TO DISLIKE HER WERE QUICK TO CLICK AND READ THE ARTICLE ON HER AND COMMENT EVEN BEFORE THE FANS…LOL HILARIOUS.. WHO FOLLOWS ARTICLES ON ARTIST THEY DO NOT LIKE?

  16. JESUS January 16, 2012

    I think Tamar will fail horribly! Why?; because she’s too immature to realize that she looks too old to sell the “young hot pop
    Chick” image. She looks like Beyonce at age 45… In Tamar’s words ” that is not the business boo boo” cover yourself up a bit more, not as in being boring but try s*** classy. Her attitude stinks this season. She refers to herself in third party as in SHE like wtf? Who does that? I used to like her but I don’t anymore. She rude, arrogant with nothing to support her arrogance. She’s spoiled like an adolescent child. Her husband seems to the being around her because she doesn’t know when to SHUT UP!!!! she lives in her own fantasy world and nobody believes her hype but her. Tamar you look old honey, fix the inside because it’s all you’ll have left in the end. Your attitude is deplorable and your mouth and actions are crass. Grow up or you’ll find yourself ALONE. sincerely JESUS

    Tamar may be able to sing/good voice but she needs to humble herself and not think oh well I’m Tamar and I can sing so the people is going to like me. She’s putting herself up and above the level of Lady GaGa / Beyonce and she needs to get a quick realality check right now.com. She needs to listen and humble herself and learn to crawl before she walks in the life of music industry. Tamar thinks she’s better than others and that will be her downfall.

    I Love Tamr for being Tamar, i respect someone who is not afraid to be themsleves, she is funny as hell, yeh she is a mouth a million but she is who she is, she has a good heart

  19. danny b January 17, 2012

    Tamar I used to love you and thought you were funny but no more. Her attitude, the bickering, fighting with her sisters and obsession with being a star is making her look very unattractive. UNATTRACTIVE.COM. I’m not sure she will do well as the mystery which you can see Toni is trying to preserve is unraveling with every new episode. Tamar is not likeable in recent shows and if you are not likeable the fans will not support you. Tamar find a way to calm down, continue to be funny but ditch the argumentative behaviour. It is NOT cute.

  28. EndingMyLoveAffairWithTamarBrattattatxon January 22, 2012

    Fighting with your sisters is tacky and Tamar is becoming a diva on air. I don’t think I like her very much anymore, she needs to grow up and add a little professionalism to her character on the show because what she is portraying right now is UGLY. The ratings may be going up but its not because of Tamar. She is wearing too much make up on her face and is not cute no more. She has to learn that her behaviour is unacceptable to her sisters. I don’t think they are jealous, I think Tamar is just rude and acting like a brat for ratings when deep down she knows better.

    Tamar I Love U So Much U Are So Beautiful
