The Grammys red carpet always looks like an intergalactic space orgy sprinkled with a bunch of random rappers who just rolled out of bed with barely enough time to grab their grill from the bedside table thrown in for good measure. Every year, it’s a mess. Plus you’ve always got legitimate superstars mixed in with a whole lot whosits and whateverhappenedtos. This year’s Grammy red carpet was no exception. I’m trying to sift through some of these looks, and honestly don’t know where to begin.
Ladies, when you’ve got one as hot as Birdman, you don’t let him fly away so easily. The man behind Cash Money Records, which sounds like a parody record company from Fear Of A Black Hat, made a surprise visit to Toni Braxton’s concert on Wednesday in Atlanta. Toni invited Birdman onstage and greeted him with a deep hug. Then, she led him offstage by the hand, leading people to believe that the pair may have reconciled after announcing their split (kinda sorta, neither were explicit about it) earlier this month.
And the emphasis is on “poor” because, if this financial nightmare continues for Toni Braxton, she’s soon going to be belting “Unbreak My Heart” for spare change from under a freeway overpass. The Blast continues to report on the most famous Braxton’s money woes.
Will Toni Braxton and Birdman, who’ve been engaged for 10 months, ever get around to getting married? Sadly, the answer is nevermore. Quoth the Birdman, “It’s Over”! That’s the final message Birdman posted to his Instagram account before wiping it clean. Couple that with Toni’s most recent post about starting her next chapter, and we’ve got a trail of breadcrumbs pointing directly at the engagement being off, and that the love birds have flown their separate ways.
Just when Toni Braxton finally found someone man enough for her, she up and loses her engagement ring! Toni got engaged to Birdman earlier this year and she recently tweeted about a dramatic incident, which has me looking at her like, “Uh, that sucks, girl, but shouldn’t you have handcuffed your luggage full of jewelry and your giant engagement ring to your wrist so you never lose it?”
Toni accidentally left her luggage on a Delta flight and someone went through it and fucked with her like the IRS claims she fucked with them. Toni says a thief snatched some jewelry including her reported $5 million engagement ring from her luggage, to which the insurance company she’s going to file a claim with are probably side-eyeing her while saying, “Is that so….”
Whenever my mom and I would watch early episodes of Braxton Family Values, she’d look at Tamar Braxton and her husband Vincent Herbert and always say, “That shit ain’t gonna last”. Someone give my mom a psychic telephone hot line because clearly she can see into the future like Miss Cleo! Tamar and Vince are in the middle of a messy divorce and one of the consequences is having their family drama publicly aired out like one of Tamar’s wigs during spring cleaning. Eldest sister Toni Braxton is preparing to go on tour and originally wanted both Tamar and their sister Traci to accompany her. But now, amidst all the bad publicity, Toni’s like, “Nah bitch. Y’all stay home.”
