Cool TONI BRAXTON EXPLODES: I DON'T SING LIKE J.LO. . .

TONI BRAXTON EXPLODES: I DON'T SING LIKE J.LO. . .
December 16, 2002 Provided by: Enquirer


GRAMMY WINNER Toni Braxton says Jennifer Lopez is a fine actress and businesswoman -- but she asks: "How can anyone compare my voice to J.Lo's?"
Veteran songbird Toni Braxton exploded after a writer dared to compare her singing to J.Lo's -- and she put down the sexy Latina as a second-rate singer.

The normally easygoing performer has suffered a series of setbacks with style and grace -- including bankruptcy, a very public breakup with her fiancé, and nasty false rumors about her sexuality.

But when the six-- time Grammy winner learned about the comparison to J.Lo, she became furious.

"Toni said the writer needed to get his hearing checked!" revealed a close family friend. "She asked, 'How could anyone possibly put me and Jennifer Lopez in the same sentence?

"'It's such bull---- !'

"She is furious that anyone would dare to compare her voice to J.Lo's.

"Toni yelled, 'I don't need $2 million worth of studio equipment to sing!

"'Jennifer can act and she's one hell of a businesswoman -- but she cannot touch my voice!'

"Toni doesn't have anything personally against Jennifer but she won't allow this to go unchallenged.

"She took offense because it makes her look like she's trying to ride on J.Lo's popularity, but she doesn't need it.

"She said she's been around A LOT longer than J.Lo and doesn't 'need to hold onto her tail to be heard!'"

Toni is now happily married and expecting her second child with husband Keri Lewis.

Concluded the family friend: "Toni says if there is one thing she's arrogant about it's her voice."

Actually, Toni Braxton actually has "Talent"! I wonder if J-Lo knows how to spell "Talent"?

OMG, what disrespect. How on god's green earth can anyone make such a mistake? J-Lo is hot (so is Toni for that matter) but J-Lo cant sing worth shit and she CANT act. A reviewer said she is stiff in all her films and I agree. How dare they...

Diplomacy be damned up in here!

Sound off with the praises of Jennifer Lopez's booty beauty( and she really does not make the top twenty in that catergory) all you desire to, but when you start trying to put here in there with the REAL songbirds, like Braxton, don't be surprised when those sweet notes Braxton is known to hit, turn into LAVA on your ass. I don't blame the woman for getting upset, and letting the "sistah" in her come out.

Lopez IS NOT a real singer. It's an insult and it's a backhand slap in Braxton's face to compare Lopez to her. Lopez would have to agree on that. WTF!

Toni has more talent on her middle finger than Jennifer Lopez has in her entire body.
