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!

Original text with English signification:
“Sometimes I am exhausted and driven Lord,
Sometimes I don’t know where to go
My Mother, and Father, don’t own me
So I’ll try to too make Heaven
By Ben – Today marks the anniversary of the release last year, of the third album of the so far Beyond trilogy “Beyond, Love Within“. With Tina’s participation on a few songs, the result was once again excellent and haunting; Bringing back her gospel roots while mixing it with her buddhist faith, a challenge for Turner who add another feather in her cap in World Music thanks to the creativity of good friend Regula Curti and the work of Swiss music producer Roland Frei.
Today, we focus once again on ‘Love Within’ but with a new and special upload! The “Heavenly Home” mix version of “Mother Within’ that was not included in the album. A shorter and bit more up-tempo version of the song to put it in a nutshell!
And for the occasion and for all your delight, a new video for the song created by Ben! Enjoy!

The April issue of Vogue, with Tina Turner on the cover, hit the newsstands today in Germany. The photo shoot, with photos by Claudia Knoepfel and Stefan Indlekofer, shows Tina looking more vibrant and elegant than ever. In the interview, Tina looks back at her past success, but also to the future.
In 2004, it was announced that Tina Turner would get a role in the Merchant Ivory movie The Goddess. Her role would be that of Hindu Goddess Shakti: “the universal feminine energy, which is manifest in Kali, Durga, Mother Mary, Wicca, and each and every woman on the planet”. In preparation for the role, Tina travelled through India, together with director Ismail Merchant. Besides starring in it, Tina was also supposed to contribute some songs in English, Sanskrit and Latin.
“Spirituality comes from a place inside of you. I don’t know where it is, I wish I would. You have to use your imagination. You have to make a connection, to become one to one with the body and the mind.”
(Tina Turner – 2012)
