    • WHO IS STERLING INFINITY? December 1, 2012

      Yes she can!!! I love this women so much

    i love me some toni she has amazing talent but she needs to get over herself and stop trying to be a diva, i dont like the way she act’son her reality show all stuck up mean while on planet earth her last 3 albums flopped harder than flip flops..this music industry is cut throat and also in terms of female singers they have an expiration date and toni hunny you expired long time ago… not trynna hate but its the truth.. i believe that tamar has a better singing voice than toni and if tamar teams up with great writers and producers she might have great success.

      “flops” dont mean bad albums

    • Jeff December 1, 2012

      Libra was a great album.

      • DOSSOME December 1, 2012

        Pulse was good too but her best album to date to me was ”THE HEAT”…that era was seriously mismanaged,i still wonder how Spanish Guitar failed to reach top 10 when its such a classic

    • vanny December 1, 2012

      like i said i am not a hater… she does make amazing music i lover her albums… but the promotion was not there and her managment team is terrible.

  3. Simply me December 1, 2012

    One things for sure is that Toni Braxton is one beautiful lady with a true talent she’s been through alot but I wish her much success :-).

  4. MC December 1, 2012

    Toni is simply gorgeous! I wish she would go back to her 90s weave instead of these bad weaves these days lol… matter I still love her to death and that voice……….let me not even talk about that deep voice. I love her personality and I want her to bring new material (album) soon.

    • NFG (No f**** given) December 1, 2012

      I thought her hair was always short in the 90’s though? Well except that one video how could an angel break my heart? She looks better with short hair tbh. But she did look hot with long hair in 2000.

      • MC December 1, 2012

        She did for some part, but then she had weaves in others (Unbreak my heart/ secrets era) so I wish she would go back to that.

  5. Simply me December 1, 2012

    I agree with you on her attitude vanny her whole demeanor sometimes can be very stuck up and in regards to her talent vs Tamar. I think they are equally talented they can both sang!! Lol.

    • irene46 December 1, 2012

      how can anyone focus on toni having an alleged divatude on the show when tamar’s attitude was ‘it’s all about me’ “dot com”. although tamar’s grown on me, i could barely stand her when the show began.

      toni looked graveling and humble next to tamar.

  6. DOSSOME December 1, 2012

    I’ve always been here for toni and i wish her all the best in her life….personally i think applying for bankruptcy was the smartest move on her part coz i would hate to see her lose her prized possesions to her least now she can pay her debts at her own convenience

    • James227 December 1, 2012

      Lucky she kept herself classy. The Russian’s love a black woman with class and she has it.

      • MC December 1, 2012

        She was manipulated by the her management into leaving LaFace from then she went downhill commercially.

      • MC December 1, 2012

        Whoops! This was meant for @LAX

  7. Lax December 1, 2012

    Talent to boot, where did it all go wrong
    for her.

  8. James227 December 1, 2012

    Damn all that money she was making and she only got thousands after working your ass off. This is probably happening to our artists today also. The money looks damn good on paper for the record label but for the artist they gets hardly nothing. Now this video has proven it all about how the record label put you in a 360 contract and take damn near all your money SMH

    • DOSSOME December 1, 2012

      After all she’s been through,very few in her condition would still look this radiant but you’re right about these artists being tied up in these bloodsucking contracts…..someone like rihanna shouldn’t be still worth $72million after selling almost 100 million records worldwide,whether she writes her material or not because she isn’t known to be a huge spender

      • FAF December 1, 2012

        ^ she didn’t sell 100M records ww thats a lie made up by her fans ..

  9. John December 1, 2012

    Her record label know they wrong for stealing all them millions from her, and putting her in debt. But she got on track felled ill and had to cancelled her vegas show after renewing it. But alteast shes alumb to get publishing off of all them songs she wrote.

  10. honeychildplease December 1, 2012

    TOni baby i love you! Best of luck, and your sisters those ungrateful bishes need to thank you for making their lame asses famous!

  11. FAF December 1, 2012

    Toni needs to go back to R&B & Ditch the techno ! b/c although R&B is a Niche market, she could get Neyo & Stargate to produce another “Irreplaceable” & put on an ovah wig & werk it !!

    She just seems like she’s resting on laurels, which she can do b/c shes legendary, but I’m talking about from a financial standpoint . .

    Keep in mind that she’s not “broke” she’s just downsizing and consolidating, meaning selling 3 homes & living in one big one

    Celebrity “broke” & regular joe “broke ” are not the same !

    • IDK December 1, 2012

      Wow @FAF this the most articulated comment Ive ever seen you post without a curse word. And i agree with you too. I could get use to this lol. But Right, I would like and R&B album from her my only fear of her doing that is will her core base fans appreciate that.

    • DOSSOME December 1, 2012

      I really appreciate comments like these,especially coming from ”unexpected” [email protected],please post like this more often

  12. mr.m December 1, 2012

    I much I as HATED “I heart you” I still LOVE this woman ..
    Her voice is just incomparable
    PULSE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    She better release a record FULL of powerful and smooth ballads

    • DOSSOME December 1, 2012

      This is the 2nd comment you’ve made in a span of 2 days that didn’t involve the word ”negro”….is this a new side of you or are we still going to be dragging the old mr.midget in future???i appreciate this comment coming from you though

  13. Eric December 1, 2012

    It was a different story on VH1. She cried and portrayed herself as a victim in Oprah drilling her about her expenses after the first bankruptcy. She laughs telling the same story on 20/20 and admits to some of the stuff that Oprah was supposedly wrong about. That part of the interview I didn’t like, but I’m still a fan and I still believe she’s got another big album in her future.

  14. credits December 2, 2012

    She could easily be on top again. Cut out the dance sh*t. Call L.A reid and Babyface, this time you make sure you get the money. i love her. I think she will have one huge comeback, like what ‘i look to you’ did for whitney.

  15. AmbeRussell December 2, 2012

    why is that so many songs on the top half of billboard hot 100 are dance/elecro pop songs, yet the dance charts have different ppl on top and a wider variety of artists charting them?
