TAMAR BRAXTON: LIVING ON TOP

Tamar Braxton wants her critics to know that there’s more to her than body rolling and sassing. The 36-year-old is all about her business. “I’m not some girl from two hit reality shows and now I want to put out a record to stretch my 15 minutes,” she explains. “No, I’m a real true artist, period.”

Braxton’s laser focus may have been misconstrued by some— even her sisters— but she says it was needed to actualize her dreams. “From season one on Braxton Family Values I wanted the whole fairy tale,” she shares. “I had love, but I wanted a family and my career all at the same time.”

The R&B singer released her second album, Love and War, in September, just three months after having her first child, Logan. The new mom quickly learned that wanting it all is not as easy as having it.
