Toni Braxton is making a comeback with her first solo album, Sex & Cigarettes. This is Toni's first album in eight years after spending nearly a decade battling the life-threatening disease lupus, according to People magazine. The singer-songwriter and R&B star is happy to say that her fiancé, Birdman, is helping her get through this difficult period in her life.
Birdman proposed to Toni with a canary yellow diamond ring and since then, Toni has been deep into wedding planning.
"This is my second wedding and I'm over 40 – It's like Carrie Bradshaw, the last bride over 40 – so I want something that's elegant and a little sexy. I've already done the beautiful bell dress at my first wedding... This time, I want something that's more vintage – '20s and '30s like Great Gatsby-themed."
"Every day I had a show, he came... Every night he would ask me, 'Are you okay? Are you good?' I said, 'Oh my God, he's such a great guy!'"
"He told me he always liked me and I was like, 'You never told me!' And he's like, 'Well, you were married!' He said, 'I was always digging you.'"
