I watched her amazing documentary on HBO. I thought it was very honest, telling and a sad when she said in all of her success, even after Private Dancer which happened in her 40s, she never knew what it felt like to be loved by someone. Absolutely adored and loved by the world, but she never knew love herself. She is an absolute ICON and we will never have anyone like her again. She is one of the few left of a generation of performers we will never have the likes of again.

"That year(1983), David Bowie told executives of Capitol Records that he had to skip a Manhattan party in his honor because his favorite performer was appearing at a nightclub. “So they all came along and voilà’ — there I was onstage,” Ms. Turner told The Post. “They signed me simply because of David.” Released to modest expectations in 1984, her album “Private Dancer” sold tens of millions of copies. Ms. Turner won three Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year, for the album’s top single, “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” which was her only No. 1 hit as a solo artist."

Asked what 'scares' her about getting older, she replied: 'Nothing. This is life’s full adventure and I embrace and accept every day with what it brings.'

Sharp as ever, Turner joked about whether she'd like more sex, money or fame - 'at my age, is there another option?' and told how she was enjoying 'anonymity in retirement'.

Turner is survived by two of her four sons - two preceded her in death - and her 67-year-old husband, Erwin Bach. The pair married in 2013 after dating for nearly 30 years.

Among the first to lead tributes to her today was Mick Jagger, who she shared electrifying on-stage chemistry with.

'I’m so saddened by the passing of my wonderful friend Tina Turner. She was truly an enormously talented performer and singer.

'She was inspiring, warm, funny and generous. She helped me so much when I was young and I will never forget her,' Jagger wrote.

Throughout her career, Turner won eight Grammy's from 25 nominations and three lifetime Grammy Awards. Her final stadium concert was in Sheffield, England, in 2009.

My only TIna story comes courtesy of my late father:

Picture it, the early 1970s. My father was a server at a nightclub in Fort Worth called The Guys & Dolls. Ike and Tina were the headliners there one night and after their set was over, the bar told my father to deliver drinks to Tina in her dressing room. So off he goes, knocks on the door, and Tina tells him to come in. He opens the door, steps in and there's Tina half-dressed. Shocked, my father started to back out when Tina said, "No, it's all right! Come on in!" So he walks back in, she's half-dressed and completely at ease, he leaves the drinks, and gets out of there as fast as possible.

RIP, Tina.

Tina Turner admitted that her health was in “great danger” just two months before her death.

The legendary singer — who passed away Wednesday at the age of 83 after a “long illness” — opened up about her battle with kidney disease on March 9 in honor of International Kidney Day.

“My kidneys are victims of my not realising [sic] that my high blood pressure should have been treated with conventional medicine,” she told her Instagram followers at the time.

“I have put myself in great danger by refusing to face the reality that I need daily, lifelong therapy with medication. For far too long I believed that my body was an untouchable and indestructible bastion.”

She was David Muir's top news story tonight. The segment was nearly ten minutes long.

by Anonymousreply 183May 24, 2023 10:41 PM

In an accompanying blog post for ShowYourKidneysLove.com, Turner explained that she was diagnosed with hypertension in 1978.

At the time, she admitted she “didn’t care much about it” and “didn’t really try to control it.”

In 1985, the musician was prescribed pills that she was “supposed to take” daily.

“After suffering a stroke in 2009 because of my poorly controlled hypertension I struggled to get back up on my feet,” she penned. “This is when I first learned that my kidneys didn’t work that well anymore. They had already lost thirty-five percent of their function.”

Turner eventually “developed a fatal dislike” of her prescription pills and even “convinced” herself that they made her feel “worse.”

So without consulting with her doctors, she “replaced” her “conventional medication” with “homeopathic” remedies.

“Indeed, I started feeling better after a while,” the 12-time Grammy winner noted. However, she was in for a rude awakening when she went for her “next routine check-up.”

“Rarely in my life had I been so wrong. I had not known that uncontrolled hypertension would worsen my renal disease and that I would kill my kidneys by giving up on controlling my blood pressure,” she confessed.

“I never would have replaced my medication by the homeopathic alternatives if I had had an idea how much was at stake for me. Thanks to my naivety I had ended up at the point where it was about life or death.”

Turner’s doctors “made it very clear” that the “consequences” of her decision were “irreversible,” informing her that her kidney function “had reached its all-time low.”

The songstress’ “only option” was to “start dialysis,” which she was on for nine months

by Anonymousreply 184May 24, 2023 10:42 PM

“But it was depressing to be connected to a machine for hours,” she lamented, adding that her second husband, Erwin Bach, “offered to donate one of his kidneys” to her.

Though she felt “lucky,” she admitted that the “very complex procedure” in April 2017 was followed by months of “never ending up[s] and down[s],” as her “body tried to reject the donor kidney as it frequently happens after a transplantation.”

“Every so often this required more hospital admissions,” she wrote. “I kept feeling nauseous and dizzy, forgot things, and was scared a lot. These problems are still not quite resolved.”

At the time, Turner insisted she was taking “multiple prescriptions” and following her “doctors’ orders meticulously.”

Has anyone checked on her former personal assistant/gay best friend Eddy Hampton Armani?

He became obsessed with her as a little boy, set out to meet her, and eventually got hired on as an unofficial gofer, and eventually Tina's PA and stylist. He was there for all of the drama with Ike, the divorce, the struggle years, the relationships gone bad, and the glorious comeback.

Along the way, he oddly morphed into her male twin, with the same long, straight hair, and affected manner of speaking. He even became a Buddhist and attempted a recording career.

Eventually the friendship ended, because Tina's then-boyfriend (now husband) Erwin couldn't stand him (or saw him as a threat), so Tina cut him loose. He then wrote a book about his years with Tina, "The Real T". It was a tell-all, but it didn't really paint her in too bad of a light...just a little cold, erratic and distrusting of people. In all the interviews he did for the book, you could tell that he really loved her and missed her.

Has anyone added this bit of information? I read this in the NY Times:

Many of her stage costumes were designed by Bob Mackie, the man who is best known as Cher’s partner in kitsch but with Ms. Turner accomplished something wholly different.

Mr. Mackie and Ms. Turner were introduced by Cher. In 1977, shortly before Tina and Ike Turner’s divorce was finalized, the two divas performed together — in identical, flaming gold dresses by Mr. Mackie — on “The Sonny & Cher Show.”

After that, Mr. Mackie became an essential part of Ms. Turner’s entourage, designing one get-up after another for a touring career that stretched until 2009, by which point she was on the verge of turning 70.

Jean jackets came and jean jackets went, but beads were omnipresent: They usually shimmered, little was loose, and the legs — simply the best — could not be hidden. When she sang, in “Proud Mary,” that “we’re going to do it nice and rough,” she could very well have been describing her visual style.

BOB freakin' MACKIE - too much class to write a tell-all about all of the broads/singers/actresses/divas he has worked with? Man I really hope he has a tome waiting at a publishers for release when he kicks.

An article I read said today said she was on food stamps and cleaning houses after leaving Ike, at least for a time. I know she wasn’t exactly flush with money, but she was still performing on variety shows and nightclubs, so it’s crazy to think she was that destitute. I saw her in concert circa 2000, and it’s still the best concert I’ve ever seen. She had the energy of someone half her age, and a fire in her belly that would not be extinguished. This celebrity death is HARD. When your idols you grew up with pass on, it’s indescribably sad. Rest in peace Anna Mae. We will never see anyone like you or your talent again.

R277 I would still say Madonna is the Queen of Pop. The problem is entertainers who lack raw talent always face the challenge of the next technological innovation and the new artists who exist in that era. Tina and Babs will be timeless because the audience will be able to see them as having exist in any era. Babs is a great vocalist who is the Queen of standards and also a talented actress. Tina the queen of rock of roll is the onstage embodiment of soul and that voice is so unique. Beyoncé is the Queen of Entertainment and I think she will ultimately be viewed as the Queen of HipHop because just like rock music it’s influence will be so profound will it will encompasses all the previous genres like r&b, dance-pop in the minds of future generations. That’s why Tina is considered the queen of rock. Because it ultimately sums up soul, blues, and Motown pop that came before it.

She only got that moniker because Michael Jackson came up with King of Pop. Madonna was an afterthought on behalf of the media. Madonna hasn’t had a real hit in years and now she’s collaborating with Sam Smith.

R318 On March 9, which was 'National Kidney Day' (who knew?) she posted on social media that her kidneys were in danger - and she blamed herself for not taking prescribed medications over the decades for her high blood pressure. By following a homeopathic routine to treat her HBP, and not conventional medicine, she admitted she destroyed her kidneys. So it sounds like she really died from kidney failure or kidney cancer.

Tina’s sons died before her: one from colon cancer and the other by suicide. Ike is dead, her sister is dead, mother is dead (of course). Poor Erwin.

Her father died in his early 50s back in the 60s. Tina was going to turn 84 this year. Her mother died at 84 too.

Cher spoke about visiting her repeatedly while she was sick. Tina was on dialysis and wanted to go. Tina told her that she could only stay for a short time and they ended up spending five hours together laughing (which everyone loved) and Tina got up from her chase lounge looking at the lake to show Cher all around her house.

Cher did the same thing to a guy who was dying of AIDS at his house. Can’t remember his name. She was warned how bad he looked and she went up and stayed with him for hours. Cher is a gem.

What an asinine comment! Do you KNOW many Black people?! Or are you one of those AAs who only associates with non-Blacks? And why is your limited observation even worth noting?

Oprah loved her. Beyonce loved her. There is an outpouring of love for her across social media. I personally know many, many Black people (mostly gay men) who love her.

Tina remade John Waite's "Missing You" for her 1996 album 'Wildest Dreams' and released it as the first single off her album in 1996 in the US*. That was a mistake, IMO. Waite took it to #1 in 1984, and there was no need for a remake 12 years later. Her album wasn't very well received in the US in 1996 - she found more success with it in Europe.

*Her first single released in Europe was 'Whatever You Want', but wasn't released to Top 40 radio in the US. Her second single was 'On Silent Wings', released in Europe - but again, never released to Top 40 radio (big mistake, as it was a hit on the AC radio charts). Her third single released in Europe was 'Missing You', which was released as the first single for the US in Top 40 - and only peaked at #87.

From The Who's FB page:

“Sad to hear we have lost Tina Turner. She had been ill for a long time, and struggling to stay in touch with old friends. She will have some peace now. An astonishing performer, and astounding singer, she was also an R&B groundbreaker. We don’t want to say too much about Ike Turner – her abusive husband – but her early records with him were simply out of this world. She always took flight when she worked with him, leaving him like a fifth wheel, chipping away at his basic riffs. When she was finally free of him her work ascended to new, even higher heights. It didn’t seem possible. If you ever had the privilege of seeing Tina perform live you will know how utterly scary she could be. She was an immense presence. A female Little Richard. She seemed like a giant: shaking, sexual, physical and stunningly beautiful In the flesh she was fragile, vulnerable and a truly sweet and empathetic person. She was of course my Acid Queen in the Tommy movie, and it is often my job to sing that song with The Who, so she always comes into my mind. It isn’t easy to deal with. The song is about abuse at the hands of an evil woman. How she turned that song on its head! All the anger of her years as a victim exploded into fire and bluster and a magnificent and crazy cameo role that will always stay with me. She has been in my mind for the last ten years, I kept meaning to track her down, and see how she was. I truly thought she would live forever.” - Pete Townshend

"What a singer! What a performer! What a life! A true original artist, and simply the best.” - Roger Daltrey

R330 What’s Love may have been recorded by others but it was not a cover. Only songs actually released in some commercial format are considered covers. The public never heard the British band who recorded a demo because it was never released in any format so this Tina’s version qualifies as the original. It’s also very different from their demo.

Tina Turner spent her final months taking yoga classes at the park, shopping for Italian designer clothes and gourmet foods and driving her Porsche Cayenne around her lakeside village, where she was known as 'modest' and 'friendly'Butcher Benny Lang told DailyMail.com: 'Tina Turner would come into town to do the shopping sometimes. She had a butler but she liked to go herself, with her husband Erwin.

'They particularly liked the Moreira Gourmet House. It is the best place in the area to buy smoked salmon and white truffles. That's what they bought there.'

Tina Turner moved to Küsnacht in 1995 when her German husband Erwin Bach got a job running the Swiss offices of EMI Music in nearby Zurich. They married in 2013.

In the same year Tina acquired Swiss citizenship and gave up her US passport.

Turner, who learned to speak German to be eligible for Swiss nationality and picked up the distinct Swiss dialect, took up yoga classes at the Horn public park, a few minutes walk from her sprawling chateau.

A neighbor revealed: 'When she first came to live here she took up yoga. She attended classes held in the park.'

Another added: 'She liked to go to the park and sit by the water. It is a very peaceful place.

'She would say 'Gruezi', how we say 'hello' in Swiss-German, to people walking their dogs. She was very friendly.'

Turner also frequented the Laredo designer clothes shop.

Shop assistant Arzu Oezoguz said: 'Ms Turner would come into the shop.

'She was very modest. She would come in with her husband Erwin.

'She was not conceited. I would say 'Hello, Ms Turner' and she would say 'hello' back.

'She liked shoes. We have some very nice shoes here, made by Italian designers. They cost about 1,000 Swiss francs.

'We also sell clothes. Our dresses cost about the same.

'Ms Turner liked to buy these. And she bought cashmere sweaters for her husband Erwin.' She added: 'Other times I would see her driving around the village in her Porsche Cayenne.

'She was a very polite lady.'

Another resident, who wished to be named only as Carmen, said: 'I would see Tina Turner walking in the street with her husband.

'They seemed very relaxed and happy together.'

A short drive from the Switzerland's financial capital Zurich, Küsnacht is home to many wealthy expat residents.

English is widely spoken in the high-class shops and restaurants that mark out this ancient village.

One resident said: 'Wealthy people are live their life in peace here.

'We leave them alone and let them be who they want to be.

'That is why they come to live here.'
