Quote of the Day: Toni Braxton Wants to Play a Lesbian on Orange Is The New Black

She has her eyes set on the Netflix series

It's been awhile since we last heard from Toni Braxton. Yet, she certainly knows how to make headlines. In a recent interview with The Grio, she explained that she has her eyes set on acting again. 

"I'm hoping to be on Orange Is the New Black,” Braxton said. “That’s my favorite show. I’m hoping… we’ll see. I told you I wanted to be a lesbian… I still want that."

The comments followed a previous interview with the publication during which she expressed wanting to portray a lesbian on screen. 

"I would like to play a lesbian," she revealed back in February. "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."

However, it may be awhile before we get the opportunity to see Braxton butch it up. She's currently promoting her new album with Babyface, Love, Marriage & Divorce, which comes out on February 4th of next year. In the meantime, the two released a version of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," just in time for the holidays.
