As Toni Braxton gears up to be honored at this year’s Soul Train Awards, she sat down with BET to play a quick round of 21 Questions. We learned some things about the oldest Braxton sibling that WE did not know, here are a couple of our favorites!
1. Toni says her pet peeve is a person that is a name-dropper! “I hate that, I don’t like it. You have to sometimes because you are friends with people. [But] It’s like you dropped something! Oh, a name.”
2. Tamar isn’t the only Braxton that loves whipping up dishes in the kitchen, Toni revealed she is currently obsessed with cooking! “I love all of the cooking shows!”
3. Toni has been a fashion and hair icon for years, but she told BET who her fashion icon is! “My fashion icon is Rihanna. I think everything about her is on point. She is one of my favorites of the girls, and when I just look at her I get inspired about what I should have been doing when I was younger,” Toni said.
4. What advice would you share with the Toni Braxton of 1993? “I would have told her to live, live, LIVE! Get in touch with your inner slut a little more…can you say that?! That’s probably bad!” No, WE love this! YOLO, Toni!
5. Toni named who she would love to collaborate with! “I would love to collaborate with Drake. I am a huge Drake fan, of the boys, he’s probably one of my favorites.” WE would love to see this happen! Call Drake on the Hotline!
6. One song that Toni wishes she would have recorded first is Beyoncé’s “Irreplaceable” because it’s one of her favorites! But, she also confessed that her favorite Tamar Braxton song is “Love and War!”
7. WE know Toni loves rap, but when she’s out at karaoke, one would think she would just sing, but instead, she taps into her hip hop side and loves performing anything by Biggie. “I go to karaoke and I rap since I sing for a living. So, when I go to karaoke, I want to be a rapper.” Toni even dropped some bars and WE think it’s hot!
