Toni Braxton serenaded Jada Pinkett Smith and others on a quiet sunny afternoon in Cali.

Jada gave her 10 million Instagram followers a little taste of Toni singing an Anita Baker song.

Jada captioned the video:

"When your girl, the one and only @tonibraxton pulls up to kick it and blesses you with an impromptu session of some of her favourite songs. It was such a special day. I was in awe of the power of the spirit that comes through her voice. I felt so honoured to be in this moment with her and witness firsthand her intimate love and connection to music and her love of sharing her gift. It’s a treasure when you can experience the gift of an artist in a way that it envelops you and makes itself tangible. You had to be there but I’m going to share just a little piece of the day in hopes that you can feel it. Thank you, Toni. I love you! Happy Sunday and ... you’re welcome...."

Toni Braxton believes her fans are still struggling to accept her overt sexuality as the daughter of a fire and brimstone preacher.

The "Do It" singer, who released her 10th album Spell My Name in August, tells Fault magazine that, years after releasing her overtly sexual single "You're Makin' Me High," people still see her as the "girl next door" from her classic debut album.

"I was 20 and trying all different things, but people still thought of me as the preacher's kid," the 53-year-old says of the growth between her self-titled debut and second album, Secrets. Toni is pictured greeting fans in 1996.

"But even the preacher kid needs to grow up someday," laughs Toni. "I think people are still caught up in that after all these years, but I do understand."

The "Breathe Again" singer also offered some wisdom on finding confidence as an artist, admitting: "As I've gotten a little older, I've learned to live in the now and just enjoy it.

"I'm really proud of the body of work that I have so I don't really have any regrets on that. Once you're older in your career, you get confidence that allows you to sustain and be okay in your art."

Hip-hop mogul Bryan "Birdman" Williams has offered to pay next month's rent for everyone in need in the Uptown New Orleans neighborhood where he was born and raised.

In association with his Johnny and Gladys Williams Foundation, the rap star, who is currently in quarantine with fiancee Toni Braxton, will pay everyone's rent to help support the needy.

He is also calling on the Housing Authority of New Orleans and Mayor LaToya Cantrell for their support.

Comedian Faizon Love and TV personality Towanda Braxton sat in for Majic 107.5/97.5 radio host Ryan Cameron who is on vacation. Also making an appearance on Thursday's Ryan Cameron Uncensored show were Towanda's current boyfriend Sean Hall and special guest - "President Of R&B" Johnny Gill.

During the celebrity-driven Ryan Report, Faizon recalled seeing Towanda's famous sister, Toni Braxton, out & about with the late rapper, Eric "Eazy-E" Wright.

We all know Eazy-E got around, but we didn't know Toni was one of his sexual conquests.

Towanda immediately questioned Faizon's recollections, but the portly comedian stood firm. Johnny, who knows the Braxton family well, couldn't confirm Faizon's report and he couldn't stop laughing.

Faizon recalled seeing Toni hopping out of a brand new BMW that Eazy E owned, down to the paint color. There were skeptical looks all around the room, especially from her sister, Towanda, who quickly got Toni on the phone.

Toni is engaged to Cash Money Records founder, Bryan "Baby" Williams, who still has money problems that she may or may not be helping him to resolve.

Listen to the audio below to find out if Toni Braxton ever dated Eazy E or comedian Chris Tucker!

Toni Braxton broke Instagram when she posted a photo of her hysterectomy scars over the weekend. The mother-of-2 is seen in her bathroom mirror, wearing a skimpy jersey and black panties. The 51-year-old pop singer captioned the image:

"Embracing my WHOLE body...hysterectomy scars and all...@orangetheory making me feel 29 again! [eye] love me some me!"

What is a hysterectomy?

A hysterectomy is the surgical removal of the uterus, aka the womb, for medical or cosmetic reasons. The uterus is part of the biological woman's reproductive system. It is where a baby grows when a female is pregnant.

Why is a hysterectomy performed?

A hysterectomy is performed for medical reasons when a woman's quality of life is affected by cancer or painful medical disorders such as endometriosis and uterine fibroids.

Painful medical conditions that may result in a hysterectomy include:

  • Chronic vaginal bleeding
  • Uterine cancer
  • Cancer of the cervix
  • Cancer of the ovaries
  • Fibroids
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
  • Uterine prolapse (when uterus drops into vagina)
  • Endometriosis (painful condition when lining grows outside uterus)
  • Adenomyosis (uterus lining grows into the uterus muscles)
  • What are the types of hysterectomies?

    1. Partial hysterectomy
    When the surgeon removes a part of the uterus but leaves the cervix intact.

    2. Total hysterectomy
    The surgeon removes all of the uterus, including the cervix. Women who have undergone total hysterectomies no longer need Pap smears since the cervix is gone.

    3. Hysterectomy and Salpingo-Oophorectomy
    The surgeon removes the entire uterus, including the cervix and one or both of the ovaries and Fallopian tubes.

    How is a hysterectomy performed?

    Surgeons can remove the uterus in a variety of ways.

    Laparoscopic Hysterectomy - the surgeon inserts a long tube into small incisions below the bikini line. A tool at the end of the tube cuts up the uterus into small pieces and the pieces are suctioned through the tube. Recovery time is about 1-2 weeks. This appears to be the surgery Braxton had done based on the small scars.

    Abdominal Hysterectomy - the surgeon removes the uterus through a large gaping incision in the abdomen above or below the bikini line. This was once considered major surgery. Down time is longer than a laparoscopic hysterectomy, and the pain is more intense.

    Vaginal Hysterectomy - when your uterus is removed through an incision in your vagina. Most women decline this option.

    What are the risks of hysterectomy?

    Risks are rare, but every surgery carries risks from blood clots to serious infections. Follow-up with your doctor is important, as are following post-op instructions and taking all medications on time.
