Wtf at that damn run-on sentence OP?


Dionne strikes me as the type of old head to never give artists who came after her that legend/icon status.


But Toni Braxton isn't an icon. idk why people push that. Tbh Mariah is the only one I'd label an icon. MJB maybe is a hip hop soul icon but Mariah is an icon period.
Can you give us your reason why you don't think Ms.Braxton isn't an icon

Mariah YES

The rest? NO

Funny how the non black woman is the only one people think is an indisputable icon. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

And Dionne aint an icon her damn self, so people need to stop asking her for her unqualified opinion on such topics.

If that's true, then Aretha wasn't an icon.

Dionne has had:
-60 years in the business
-69 charted singles on the hot 100 (she's also charted on the R&B and adult contemporary charts)
-75 million singles and 25 million albums sold worldwide (when people would actually buy records)
-5 Grammys and a Lifetime achievement Award

In 50 years, ya'll ready think people are going to be talking about Toni Braxton and discussing her vocal stylings.

She's a great singer but in the pantheon of the greats? I don't see it.

Anybody know the tea on why Dionne don't like Mariah

When Mariah debuted she was being compared to Whitney. Allegedly, Dionne was asked how do you feel about Mariah she said something about her taking Whitney's style.

Dionne has always been sweet/sour. It has to be her way or no way. It's good to be that way as a woman in her industry as they aren't always treated with respect in show business or in general. I guess she feels she has to be that way but I think she should tone it down some.
