As buzz continues to build over Toni Braxton‘s indecisoin over doing a nude Playboy spread, SOHH reached out to some of R&B’s biggest stars for their take on the situation.
In Keri Hilson‘s eyes, Braxton’s decision is one she could respect either way.
“More power to anyone who chooses to do that but I don’t see that in my future, whatsoever” Hilson told SOHH. “I just don’t. I am doing something for Allure Magazine which is for skin cancer so I’m partially nude and I think that’s as far as I go. It’s using my celebrity for a great cause. It’s for an issue, being breast cancer. She’s got a great body and it’s a personal decision. I don’t think it’ll affect her music. Playboy is not looked at as it once was. More power to her. She’s grown and more power to Toni Braxton is that’s what she decides to do.” (SOHH)
Aiming for a male perspective, SOHH hit up Lloyd who offered his services in the shoot.
“Wow, that’s interesting,” Lloyd told SOHH when informed about Braxton possibly doing a spread. “My question is, can I take the picture? [laughs] Come on, man. [laughs] She’s grown, she can do what she wants to do.” (SOHH)
R&B singer and “Love & Hip-Hop” reality star Olivia said she could understand Braxton’s interest.
“To each’s own, everybody doesn’t like the same thing,” Olivia told SOHH. “Everybody should do what they want. If she still looks good and wants to do it, I say go for it. But me personally? I wouldn’t do that, period. At any age.” (SOHH)
Braxton recently opened up about the offer and said she has until June to make a final decision.
“They asked me and I was really flattered, they’ve asked me a few times in the past but one of the reasons I was more excited was because after I was sick and I didn’t feel sexy and I thought I had lost my mojo,” Braxton told television host Wendy Williams. “And when they asked me, I’m like, ‘Do they still think I’m sexy? My boobies hang down to here a little bit.’ So I was really flattered…I haven’t decided. I have until June. One of the reasons I’m hesitant is because of my boys. I don’t want their friends to come up to them at school and say, ‘I saw your mommy’s boobies.’ You know? It wouldn’t be a full spread.” (“Wendy Williams Show”)
