I'm gutted that she isn't a Scorpio. Would have made a much more memorable record.

Trina Johnson-Finn, a Las Vegas entertainer and impersonator, was arrested after she pretended to be Toni Braxton in a concert in Paramaribo, Suriname in South America.

Prosecutors claim Toni Trina attempted to fool the crowd in the concert which took place over two months ago.

However, Trina's husband, Raymond Finn, says she was the victim of a local con artist and "concert promoter" who was responsible for scamming the concertgoers into thinking the realBraxton would be perfoming.

The truth came out once Trina was on stage and she messed up a note at the beginning of the second song. That's when people in the 3,000 large crowd started to boo and began throwing trash at the stage!

Authorities then took Phony Tina and Raymond into custody. They'll have to go to court on May 26th after being charged with defrauding the people who bought tickets. Finn was later released without being charged after two weeks in custody though.

Prosecutor Duncan Nanhoe alleged yesterday that Trina "deliberately presented herself as being Toni Braxton during the concert."

As for the promoter, Angel Ventura of Events for Suriname, he was finally found and arrested on Monday in a local bar. And during an telephone interview from Las Vegas, Raymond claimed Ventura, without Trina's knowledge, was the one who promoted her as the real Braxton.

Finn added, "Trina's been isolated there for two months. She doesn't understand why she's being used as a scapegoat." Adding that he believes she's been arrested "to appease public anger."

Sounds a bit too much to have the poor lady in jail for two months awaiting the court date.

:lol:
I'm so serious! XD *lol* No, I just associated what Libra has got to do with the sound of the album. And it is kinda unexciting sound I have to say. Libra is one of my least favourite R&B records of the decade. Nothing on it sounds particularly amazing.

Yeah it's a ballad, it's not bad - just typical Toni ballad. I'm quite gutted actually, I always wanted Pulse to be some hot club song!

I have to say this..... :oops:
Once upon a time Toni was like one of my favorite artists out there....But I think she has some serious issues with her self esteem. I dont' know what's going on in her head but she doesn't have healty relationship with her body and her appearance. I mean, she's beautiful woman....Why is she forcing that naked, drag queen look all the time....and she lost the touch with the music ....Libra had some great songs, and she made bad moves with singles... Album floped anyways (this one will too, I don't think she can come back with weak songs like Melt and Puls), she might as well than put a great song out there no MATTER HOW HOW DIFFERENT IT IS and no matter IF IT HAS DOWNLOAD HIT WRITTEN ALL OVER IT OR NOT........

I think Pulse is the only worthwhile track we've heard so far. It sounds like real classic Toni, like it could have come from one of her 90s albums but without sounding outdated.

Apparently the guying doing Sean Kingstons 2nd single is producing Toni's first single from her new album! OMFG!!!

Apparently he did 2 songs with her: "m.m.h" and "lam"

PS Same guy that did PCD's I Hate This Part!

Don't think anyone posted this but it's from January, and a rather unreliable source (Daily Star):

ALEXANDRA BURKE TROUNCES TONI BRAXTON

AFTER Alexandra Burke’s awesome X Factor win we knew it would only be a matter of time before the singer started making waves across the pond.

But even we didn’t expect the big-voiced beauty to find herself in a handbags-at-dawn diva war so soon.

The down-to-earth London lass is constantly being compared to US megastar Toni Braxton. Now she finds herself doing battle with her.

While Alex’s express train to worldwide domination gathers speed Toni’s comeback plans have been delayed after
producers working on her new album Pulse jumped ship to work with our British girl.

Braxton may have sold 40million records and bagged six Grammys but it seems not even a heavyweight like her can compete with Alex these days.

A Stateside snitch told us: “After taking a few years off Toni is planning a big comeback this year and wanted to get back to the top of the charts.

“She almost had her album finished but she’s lost three of her favourite tracks after they were offered to Alexandra
instead.

“Toni thought she had them in the bag so she’s not happy they’ve now been given to someone she’s never even really heard of.”

We have a sneaky feeling she’ll be even less impressed when Alex scores No.1s all over the world with the tracks that should have been hers.

Miss Burke may be off Miss Braxton’s radar for now but this time next year we reckon even new life on Mars will be jumping on board the Alexandra train.

Word of warning to Beyoncé, Mariah and Leona: Alex has already KO’d one of her own idols so you’d better pray you’re not next on the hit list.

There's some snippets of THREE contenders for Toni's official lead single floatin around on the net..the titles are "Hands Tied (ballad)" "Make My Heart" (uptempo) and "Looking Back At Me" (reggae influenced midtempo!) Im trying to stream these, but having no luck, if someone could PM me these snippets, would be very grateful!!
