‘Braxton Family Values‘ star Tamar Braxton and her husband Vince Herbert are featured on the cover of this week’s JET magazine.
Tamar, having been bitten by the fame bug, is doing a full court press in the studio recording tracks for her upcoming album. She said the studio brings out the hidden ‘Sasha Fierce’ in her — referring to the alter ego of pseudo-singer Beyonce.
“I have to do this,” she said. “I wake up in the morning and want to go to the studio, because if I don’t go, ‘her’ is going to be upset.” When asked about her musical style, Tamar replied “I don’t want to put it in a category because when you do that you limit yourself. It’s just going to be hot music. Great songs that appeal to everybody.”
The 34-year-old former backup singer for sibling Toni Braxton, clearly believes reality show fame will translate into album sales. Maybe she should consult with RHOA star Kandi Burruss?
Tamar’s husband Vince, who is recovering from a near-fatal blood clot in his lungs, responded to criticism that his wife is using him for his money and his connections (Vince once managed Lady Gaga and other stars).
“I love my wife. This girl is so far from being a gold digger. I wouldn’t be with someone like that for nine years,” he said.
Tamar chimes in: “When I met Vince I had my own house. I had my own car. I was independent.”
Vince said the secret to his happy marriage is to be friends first: “Tamar is the greatest,” said Vince. “Like, we’d just drive to Disneyland, then go to the movies and fall asleep. Because we are friends and you can’t stress that enough in a relationship. We have our arguments and disagreements, but that’s life.”
