The year 1993 was a real Tina Turner year and offered the full range of a pop star´s work and output: a new album (or at least partly new as most of the tracks were re-recordings), several releases as singles, a tour in the United States and several festival concerts overseas and – of course – magazine articles, TV appearances and – the reason for all the drama – the autobiographical movie “What´s Love Got To Do With It”. 1993 started with the release of “I Don´t Wanna Fight” which turned out to be a big hit on both sides of the Atlantic.

A 1993 tv interview on the Australian show A Current Affair, for the promotion for Tina Turner’s 1993 album, movie and tour What’s Love Got To Do With It. During the interview, Tina is confronted with footage of an earlier interview with her ex-husband Ike Turner, which creates an uncomfortable atmosphere. However, Tina manages to get through the interview gracefully, simply explaining ‘I don’t want to start an argument with Ike Turner via satellite’. Very interesting interview!
