If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter you’ve probably seen this pictures before but everybody isn’t on social networks so here they are! A glamorous and healthy Tina Turner has been spotted last weekend enjoying the good life during a private event in Italy. Of course no one can resist having its picture taken with the legend which makes all the fans happy and jealous at the time! But most of all we are all thrilled to see Miss Tina enjoying the good life and in top form!
And as an extra bonus to begin the weekend if you haven’t seen it yet, a new video upload with this montage of TINA performing ‘Whatever You Want’ live back in 1996. The video is taken from the Johannesburg TV broadcast and the audio comes from the concert Tina gave in Brunei also that year. If anyone has a nice copy of the Johannesburg concert, don’t hesitate to contact me. The only copy in circulation is… well… you’ve seen it! Audio comes from soundboard recording, if you can use headphones to get the full experience! Enjoy!
Later this month, Miss Tina Turner will turn 77! Throughout her life and career, she showed the world that despite life’s turmoil and challenges, you and only yourself are in control of your fate. And if you are smart enough to clearly understand the rules of the Universe, you can be in full control and like Tina live a happy and healthy life.
So today, here’s 5 tips that we learned from Tina to improve your being. And trust us, There Is No Alternative…
1 – STAY AWAY FROM DRUGS
If the Gypsy, the Acid Queen herself tells you that a life free of drugs is essential to develop your well being you better trust her. Having a clear mind in every circumstances is a ‘sine qua non’ condition to enlighten your being. And you can spend the money you don’t use on drugs on things you like, like clothes!
Back in 1997, Tina Turner was in the middle of the gigantic Wildest Dreams World Tour and of course promoting the tour and the album of the same name massively. Appearing on every major US shows, she gave one her best interview on the set of the Larry King show on CNN. Evoking her life in Europe, her boyfriend Erwin Bach and her faith in buddhism, the Queen of Rock is even asked to do a “chant variation” from her favorite mantra Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. The result: a red faced and speechless Larry King and one of the most memorable moment of American TV, bringing the mantra to a broader audience.
Now, fans knows the interview by heart, it’s a classic among us and we are still waiting for the Unplugged Album (as well as the album from “The Buddisht & The Jew ft The Mormon Tabernacle Choir”) but it finally emerged in HD recently. So for all our delight, first video above of Tina chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo followed by the full interview with Larry King uploaded on Youtube by CNN! Enjoy!

One of the most ingenious creative talents of our generation has passed away: David Bowie. Friend, collaborator and admirer of Tina Turner. We thank him for his inspiration, his talent, his music and his charm. And for the most sizzling duet in rock history. Rest in peace, David.
“Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary keeps on burning”
The only certainty in life is that nothing is certain. Everything changes, nothing stays the same. When Tina Turner was asked for her sixtieth birthday what kind of message she wants to deliver to her audience, she answered exactly that. The feeling that everything changes and nothing stays the same.
Yesterday, we learned from Oprah’s Twitter that Tina Turner (74) had recently recovered from “a bad flu” that she contracted a few weeks ago in Zurich. The living legend is doing great so that is a first and happy news! Moreover we all look forward to hear more from Tina with the upcoming release of ‘Beyond, Love Within’.
Now there’s some other releases coming! Nothing to go crazy about (yet) but it still has to be noticed!
