Toni Braxton is making an official leave for music to make more time for her acting career.
“For what I do I have to love it, I have to feel that excitement and it’s gone,” Braxton said of her departure from music. “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.”
The singer turned actress said she would like to take on more challenging acting roles.
“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.”
Braxton has sold more than 60 million albums in her 20+ year career, and has won six Grammy Awards. Her reality show, “Braxton Family Values” premieres its third season on March 14.
