Singer Toni Braxton says her lesbian crush would be funny lady Ellen DeGeneres.

“[E]very girl has her lesbian crush,” Braxton told Michigan gay weekly Pride Source. “My lesbian crush would be Ellen [DeGeneres]. I love how she dances. I like her haircut. Love everything about her.”

Braxton, 46, mentioned her lesbian crush in the course of discussing her public campaign to play a lesbian on Netflix's Orange is the New Black.

“So this would be a way for me to channel my inner Ellen,” Braxton said of the role.

She added that playing a lesbian having sex with another woman wouldn't “be a stretch for me.”

“Are you saying you've had a lesbian experience?” she was asked.

“I've never had one in my life! Ever! This would be my first lesbian experience if I did Orange is the New Black, because I've never had one. There are a lot of things I haven't experienced that I need to start experiencing. I need to start living. Like Aunt Mame said, 'I need to live!' I would like to say, 'I lived.'”

When asked whether she supports marriage equality, Braxton answered: “Everyone should be able to love.”

Braxton's latest studio album, Love, Marriage & Divorce, arrives February 4.
