Reality TV may be paying Toni Braxton's bills but it doesn't mean she has to like it...
Toni Braxton, who recently announced her retirement from music, tells The Grio,
“I hate to have reality star behind my name.”
“That’s just not what I wanted to be when I grew up.”
“For me it’s challenging because the artists that I grew up to be; me, the late great Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, we were taught to be aloof. No one needs to know about your life. But now in the age of reality you have to talk about your life and expose it.”
