Toni Braxton Retiring From Music


Singer Toni Braxton is hanging up her microphone after realizing she no longer has a love for music.  The UnBreak My Heart hit-maker has won eight Grammy Awards and sold over 66 million records worldwide, but over the last few years she has been hit with a number of health scares and financial problems that have forced her to rethink her career.

In 2011, she teamed up with her mother and sisters for reality TV show Braxton Family Values, which is currently approaching its third season, and now she has decided to retire from recording altogether and focus on acting and other projects.

Braxton announced the news during an appearance on Good Morning America on Thursday.  She said, “I don’t feel the love for music anymore. It’s not affecting me and making me feel that thing I always felt when I performed, it’s leaving me. I’m not sure what’s going on in my life, maybe I’m going through a female midlife crisis, I’m not sure, but my heart isn’t in it anymore, and I hate to say that.”

I don’t want to be mean or anything, but it felt like Toni’s music career been over.  It’s good that she’s moving into a new phase of her life.  Best wishes for her!! It would be nice if she could take Tamar with her…

  1. lol! tamar is so funny!! esp since she had an album out a long time ago. my husband was one of the 10 folks who bought it. she had a couple of good songs but just couldnt pull it off. they can both sing, and they’re very pretty, but they need a bit more. they need to be writing their songs (like mariah) and/or they need more music appeal that draws folks in. i love toni, though. i’m sure she’ll be back!

  2. You’re right E. Her career been over. Guess now that Tamar stole her style she knows now for herself its over.

  3. Good! Love her…but Toni is a has been….she needs to put down her mic, and focus on making lifetime movies. If artist are not pop, lock and dropping it these days….it’s hard to make it in the music industry. The days of great vocalist alone are over….our culture loves sweat, booty crack and nakedness (i.e. Rih Rih)….damn the ability to sing. Lol. Now Tamar is her own side show circus….her messiness and drama alone gets her attention, in addition to Papa Bear Vincent money and connections. Needless to say, I’m going to be all over her Love & War album. Hahaha!

  4. Retiring????When did she come back???
