TONI BRAXTON SAYS SHE REGRETS NOT HAVING MORE S*X WHEN SHE WAS YOUNGER

R&B singer Toni Braxton has shared some her regrets which include not partying more and not having more s–e-x when she was younger.

In an interview with The Guardian UK, Braxton said, “I regret not having more s–e-x when I was younger. I should have drank more. I should have partied more. Smoked more, even.”

Braxton grew up in a religious home, she added: “I think my religious upbringing stopped me doing a lot of things that I should have done. It’s not a good look at the age I am now. The way it works is you do that stuff in your 20s and 30s and then in your 40s you’ve earned enough to pay for the therapy.”

Her father, Michael Conrad Braxton Sr., was a Methodist clergyman and power company worker, and her mother, Evelyn Jackson, was a former opera singer and cosmetologist, as well as a pastor. Braxton’s maternal grandfather was also a pastor.

“I wouldn’t say I was religious, but I am spiritual. I believe in a greater force,” she said.

“When I was seven, my family became very religious. We were Jehovah’s Witnesses; we were Catholic – we tried everything before settling on United Methodist. I asked my mum once what they were searching for and she just replied: ‘It was the 70s.’ The 70s were a very religious era. I think a lot of people were looking for the right path.”

Braxton said that people do not believe how she was discovered, according to her, “they think it’s a story for publicity, but it’s absolutely true.”

“I was in college and one day I was at the gas station, singing to myself while I filled the car. The attendant [William E Pettaway Jr, writer of Girl You Know It’s True, by Milli Vanilli] comes up to me and tells me he likes my voice and that he’d like to do some demos with me. I thought it was just a line, but I went with it and here I am. He went on to buy the gas station!”

Always Been a Baddie': Fans Swoon Over Toni Braxton's Timeless Beauty
I didn’t realise I could sing until my teenage years. Singing was so much a part of me and my family. We got up, we sang, we went to bed. I think at elementary school I realised I had a different tone. My voice was always low. I remember everyone in class singing Joy to the World and I was the only one who couldn’t sing it in the key. I was always the kid in the room with the low voice that made you turn around.

Nobody believes how I was discovered. They think it’s a story for publicity, but it’s absolutely true. I was in college and one day I was at the gas station, singing to myself while I filled the car.

I was starstruck meeting Stevie Wonder. He was touching my face – which is how he “sees” – and telling me how beautiful I was. I was, like: “You could cop a feel right now, Stevie, and I wouldn’t care – you’re Stevie Wonder!” I’m a huge fan. Meeting him was absolutely massive to me.

I wish autism wasn’t so misunderstood. My son was diagnosed with autism when he was three and I work with the charity Autism Speaks. I’m blessed. He’s in a regular school now. I always tell people that early diagnosis changes everything, but also that our babies just learn differently – that’s all.

I’m a classic Libra. I’m always trying to find balance. I do have misplaced anger, though. I need to learn to deal with frustration as and when it happens, not to let it all build up. But it’s good to know your flaws. I don’t trust people who don’t think there’s anything about themselves to work on. We’re all works in progress.
