Tina Turner is, indeed, a legend. With her spectacular voice and electric stage presence, her famous gams and her rich mane of hair she owns a stage like few others, delivering once-in-a-lifetime performances to her audience.
Tina Turner’s look is as rocked out as it is surprisingly natural, and always perfectly classy. No one bats an eyelash whether she shows up in leather pants or a rhinestone gala gown. She transcends conventional styles and attitudes.
This, Nutbush, Tennessee-born, trailblazer has done more for the music industry and women rockers/performers than probably any other female singer. With a 50+ year career under her belt, she is still as relevant today as she was 20 years ago, or even 40 for that matter. She is the music icon par excellence. She did win 8 Grammy Awards, is an inductee to the Grammy Hall of Fame and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and, of course, a Kennedy Center Honors recipient.
One of the things that is so endearing about her is how she never apologizes for who she is.
Considering her personal trials and tribulations, including a mercurial relationship with her ex-husband Ike, she has kept her head up high and continues to march on.
She is also an enigmatic personality. A quintessential American icon, she lives in France, still performs on a regular basis, but is somewhat reclusive and interview-shy. And at 71, she can still rock it like the best of them!
Tina Turner has come a long way since her days as Anna Mae Bullock. Her honesty on and off the stage celebrates who she is and for that… she is a Diva We Love.
