Tamar Braxton Talks Being Turned Into A Meme
There were many noteworthy moments during Tamar Braxton’s BET Awards performance–including the fact that she shared a stage with Patti LaBelle and K. Michelle—but the R&B singer’s makeup and facial expressions quickly became a trending topic on social media. And then, of course, the memes began circulating. During a recent interview with Billboard, Braxton said that she wasn’t too bothered by the banter.
“It doesn’t bother me at all — I’ve been a meme for the past five years,” said. “My friends and I text each other memes of myself, like, ‘Girl, sit down,’ or ‘Oh, please.’ That wasn’t offensive to me at all — even I posted it.”
The reality star also dished on her new album, Calling All Lovers, which contains tracks inspired by her past relationships. She revealed that there is a song on the project that literally reduced her to tears.
“A song called Circles’ about being in a relationship that’s a never-ending story. You make up, you break up, you catch them in a lie, you take them back, you don’t know how you got back in the situation again. I had been through it 100,000 times before I met Vince. After I finished recording, I wept, not just cried — wept, honey! Men are terrible until you find one that’s great, and he annoys you for different reasons.”
Now that she’s married to one of the “good guys,” Braxton says she has learned that communication is an absolute must in healthy marriages.
“Communication. Do not surprise me with your feelings. Once Vince and I were in an argument. I love onions, but he said, ‘And, on top of that, I don’t like onions!’ I was devastated. Twelve years in, I’m just finding out you don’t like onions?”
Calling All Lovers is schedule for a September 11 release. Are you looking forward to new music from Tae Tae?
