Watch: Grammy Winner Toni Braxton Longs to Play Lesbian

Grammy winner Toni Braxton plans to take a break from music to focus full time on acting, and her dream role would be to play a lesbian, she told NBC News.

“I would like to play a lesbian,” she told NBC. “I don’t know why. And do a whole make-out scene and the whole thing; just something completely different than people would expect from me. Not a lipstick lesbian, either.”

Braxton, an 8-time Grammy Award winner, has sold over 66 million records worldwide.  Her most famous tracks include hits "Your'e Making Me High" and "Unbreak My Heart." 

“For what I do I have to love it. I have to feel that excitement and it’s gone,” she said. “I’m just not going to do any albums anymore; maybe touring occasionally here and there because I love performing, but not as much as I did in the past.”

Braxton’s only notable screen creds includes the 7th season of Dancing with the Stars, We tv’s Braxton Family Values, and 2002’s Kingdom Come, co-starring with LL Cool J and Jada Pinkett-Smith.

You can catch her next in the Lifetime movie, Twist of Faith, scheduled to air this Saturday.  The story revolves around a gospel singing single mother who falls in love with an Orthodox Jewish man.
