In her new video for the single “Hands Tied,” the 42-year-old mom of two shows off her svelte assets, proving she’s still got it.
The Billie Woodruff-directed video centers around “a sexy strip tease,” says Braxton. “A beautiful woman is teasing a bar full of men who are mesmerized by her moves, but of course they are not allowed to touch her.”
Though things were hands-off on set, folks still got a little accidental peep show:
“My left boobie kept falling out,” says Braxton. “It wanted to make a cameo!”
Accidental nudity aside, Braxton says rocking super high heels in the video had the 5-feet-2-inch tall singer feeling like a super model. “I felt as tall as Cindy Crawford,” she says, but not without a price. “The shoes hurt really badly,” she says. “It guess that means my stylist got me some pretty fabulous shoes [because] the better they are it seems the more they hurt.”
When it came to choosing one of her leading men for “Hands Tied,” which is from her Pulse album out May 4, Braxton called upon her actor pal Michael Jai White of Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too, who’s “been a friend of mine for years,” she says.
