Toni Braxton To Retire... (?!)

Tue Feb 12, 2013 3:02 pm

From what? Toni B has been a 'has been' for years. Well, perhaps she copycating Pope Benedict's retirement...
Here's more on this subject.

Maybe it's a stunt so that her music sales go up and then when she's loaded with money, come back in a triumphant manner.

That was my very first thought. This would have to be the least earth-shattering news man has ever heard.

Certainly. Her last top-10 album was way back in 2010.

But after Dancing with the Stars, a reality show, medical problems with the uncurable disease Lupus - she is not a top money maker any longer.

If she has managed to curtail the 'star' lifestyle - she might be comfortable. Or she might be out of cash and needs every trick possible to stay solvent.

Ah ha! The real reason Toni's retiring:

Unbreak my heart, Toni...Say you'll come back again!  

"Unbreak my heart" is a good nostalgic song that takes me back to the 90s but I haven't heard of a thing she's done in the last 10 years. She has a very powerful voice that fills up a room, though-I'm sorry she couldn't use it to really stay on top.

She's only about 8 to 10 years from the nostalgia concert circuit.

Heck, most of the old singers / band make as much on today's smaller concert venue's than their best and biggest concerts they every had in their 'prime'.
