This morning Tamar Braxton and her husband Vince Herbert hit “The Breakfast Club” to promote their new show “Tamar & Vince”. While at the show, the two talked about who really discovered Lady Gaga, Tamar calls Akon a liar, and Vince tells us the truth about his wife.
On Why Lady Gaga never mentions Akon
Tamar: Why would she mention Akon for? He’s a liar and the truth ain’t in him. What was the story he told? Because I was there when [Vince] discovered Lady Gaga and Akon was nowhere near. I’m just trying to be honest. I mean, from what I know, is that REDONE was his producer and so that’s how he got that credit. You know how people be stealing peoples publishing and stuff like that […] and that’s how that happened, but he didn’t find her on Myspace like this one [points to Vince] did. He didn’t find her on the roller-skates with the bikini top.
I’m sorry I just don’t like it when people be lying like that. Just tell the truth. He needs to sit down in all seats in Yankee stadium.
On whether Lady Gaga is going out with Kendrick Lamar
Vince: Let me tell you what happened with that. Gaga is making a record, she likes to help people, people like to help her. She’s like, ‘Vince, who do you think is a new hot rapper that’s coming up?’ It’s hard to get things cleared and Kendrick is on Interscope and you know our deal is through Interscope and she said, ‘I really like him and I’m going to help him out.’ She’s a good girl! She won’t buy a house, she doesn’t spend money, and she has a car that we bought her three years ago but she doesn’t have a license. She’s a good hearted person.
I’ve worked with a lot of artist in my career and she’s really like a really good girl. Like, when I got sick she was there every day and every night and you know when you are down, people show up.
On whether Vince truly believes Tamar has a career in singing
Vince: I definitely believe in Tamar’s [talent]. Tamar is one of the best singers in the business. I’ve been knowing her for a long time and even before we started dating. Her voice has gotten better and better and her talent is incredible as a songwriter. She’s actually done some background vocals for [Lady] Gaga. She’s just really a great singer and I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t believe in her.
On Tamar not wanting kids until her music career pops off
I want kids in my life but I just feel that as a woman, it’s important for me to lead by example. I don’t want to have a daughter and she thinks that I’m at home like a housewife, that’s not the woman that I am and that’s not the woman that I want to convey to my daughter, if I have one. So, I just feel that there is some things that I need to do on my own so I can be a respected mother and that’s just the bottom line.
Vince: When we first met each other, we really didn’t want to have kids. Some people want [kids] and some people don’t but after [I was in the hospital], it was like okay we are going to have kids and we are going to have a family and things like that and it definitely made us closer. It’s important to just be honest and love each other. I get on Tamar’s nerves, she gets on my nerves but at the end of the day we love each other.
On whether Vince ever feels comfortable about being on camera
It makes [me] uncomfortable but these are the things you do when you love your wife. You will do things [that you wont normally do] [..] just to be a supportive person.
On whether Tamar spends a lot of money
Vince: No she doesn’t. Actually Tamar is very frugal and very respectful when it comes to that. She spends money on things that are necessary.
Tamar: And of course she makes her own money and then she had her own money when she met Vince. So, you know so its not like I’m running up his black card. I mean, I do what I do but I don’t.
They’re so cute, I can’t wait to see their show. We already know Tamar is going to show out!
