Tamar Braxton Talks Christian Foundation: ‘I Learned A Lot From That’

So many secular stars like Nicki Minaj, Fantasia Barrino, and the legendary Aretha Franklin have strong Christian roots. The same is true of rising R&B star Tamar Braxton, 36, whose parents were pastors at one time.

In a newly published interview with Flaunt Magazine, the no-holds-barred diva who admits her mouth gets her in a whole lot of trouble, opened up about how her foundation of faith helps her to be authentically her.

“Both of my parents at one time were pastors of their own churches and I learned a lot from that,” she said. “But not until I was an adult did I understand it and know for myself.”

Michael and Evelyn Braxton, now divorced, both remain active in their children's lives. Braxton's dad, back when he was preaching the gospel, had magnificent help from his talented daughters who sang in his choir.

The youngest of WE tv’s “Braxton Family Values” sisters and self-described “bratty” one told Ebony Magazine that in order to reach her career goals, “I had to be really strong in my faith and I know if it wasn’t for God, I would not be here.”

While it is a controversial notion for many within the faith community to espouse a viewpoint that places God at the helm of the careers of secular recording artists, nevertheless, many like Braxton believe it is their God-ordained purpose to reach the masses with their gifting.

Though the “Love & War” songstress started in church, unlike Braxton's fellow co-host of new talk show "The Real," Tamera Mowry-Housley, the vocalist's world perspective is not overtly Jesus centered.

In an interview with 105.1 FM’s “The Breakfast Club,” radio personality Charlamagne Tha God expressed his annoyance with what he called Mowry Housley's "fake righteousness," causing Braxton to rush to the defense of her television friend.

“That’s why I love her so much because, you know, I’ve never met someone so, like, green, you know what I mean?” Braxton said “She’s very conservative and hilarious.”

Conservative is something “Team Too Much” Braxton will never be called. That is simply not in her DNA.

Tamar really is "Team Too Much" in that she doesn't know how to tone it down and relax. I hope she finds her way back to a REAL relationship with Go.d
