"Tina Turner, queen of rock and roll, dead at 83. By Hillel Attali, Associated Press. Tina Turner, the unstoppable singer and stage performer who teamed with husband Ike Turner for a dynamic run of hit records and live shows in the 1960s and 1970s, and survived her horrifying marriage to triumph in middle age with the chart -topping What's Love Got to Do With It, has died at 83. Turner died Tuesday after a long illness in her home near Zurich, Switzerland, according to her manager. She became a Swiss citizen a decade ago. Few stars traveled so far. She was born Anna Mae Bullock in a segregated Tennessee hospital and spent her latter years on a 260 ,000 square foot estate on Lake Zurich and overcame so much. Physically battered, emotionally devastated, and financially ruined by her 20 -year relationship with Ike Turner, she became a superstar on her own in her 40s at a time when most of her peers were on their way down and remained a top concert draw for years after. With admirers ranging from Beyonce to Mick Jagger, Turner was one of the world's most successful entertainers, known for a core of pop, rock, and rhythm and blues favorites. Proud Mary, Nutbush City Limits, River Deep, Mountain High, and the hits she had in the made another hero, and a cover of Al Green's Let's Stay Together. Her trademarks were her growling contralto, her bold smile and strong cheekbones, her palette of wigs and the muscular, quick -stepping legs she did not shy from showing off. She sold more than 150 million records worldwide, won 12 Grammys, was voted along with Ike into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991 and on her own in 2021, and was honored at the Trinity Center in 2005 with Beyonce and Oprah Winfrey among those praising her. Her life became the basis for a film, a Broadway musical, and an HBO documentary in 2021 that she called her public farewell. Until she left her husband and revealed their backstory, she was known as the voracious onstage foil of the steady -going Ike, the leading lady of the Ike and Tina Turner Revue. Ike was billed first and ran the show, choosing the material, the arrangements, the backing singers. They toured constantly for years, in part because Ike was often short on money and unwilling to miss a concert. Tina was forced to go on with bronchitis with pneumonia with a collapsed right lung. Other times, the cause of her misfortunes was Ike himself. As she recounted in her memoir, I, Tina, Ike began hitting her not long after they met in the mid -1950s and only grew more vicious. Provoked by anything and anyone, he would throw hot coffee in her face, choke her, or beat her until her eyes were swollen shut, then rape her. Before one show, he broke her jaw, and she went onstage with her mouth full of blood. Terrified both of being with Ike and of being without him, she credited her emerging Buddhist faith in the mid -1970s with giving her a sense of strength and self -worth, and she finally left in early July 1976. The Ike and Tina Turner Revue was scheduled to open a tour marking the country's bicentennial when Tina snuck out of their Dallas hotel room with just a mobile credit card and thirty -six cents while Ike slept. She hurried across a nearby highway, narrowly avoiding a speeding truck, and found another hotel to stay. I looked at him and thought, you just beat me for the last time, you sucker, she recalled in her memoir. Turner was among the first celebrities to speak candidly about domestic abuse, becoming a heroine to battered women and a symbol of resilience to all. Ike Turner did not deny mistreating her, although he tried to blame Tina for their troubles. When he died in 2007, a representative for his ex -wife said simply, Tina is aware that Ike passed away. Little of this was apparent to the many Ike and Tina fans. The Turners were a hot act for much of the 1960s and into the 70s, evolving from bluesy ballads such as A Fool in Love and It's Gonna Work Out Fine to flashy covers of Proud Mary and Come Together and other rock songs that brought them crossover success. They opened for the Rolling Stones in 1966 and 1969, and were seen performing a lustful version of Otis Redding's I've Been Loving You Too Long in the 1970s Stones documentary Gimme Shelter. Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett gave Oscar -nominated performances as Ike and Tina in the 1993 movie What's Love Got to Do With It, based on I, Tina, but she would say that reliving her years with Ike was so painful she couldn't bring herself to watch the movie. Ike and Tina's reworking of Proud Mary, originally a tight mid -tempo hit for Credence Clearwater Revival, helped define their assertive sexual image. Against a background of funky guitar and Ike's crooning baritone, Tina began with a few spoken words about how some people wanted to hear songs that were nice and easy..

"So excited. So the lighting and suddenly, your lips are touching my life. It's a very different, very different feel, you know. So, I was told the Diana Ross, like, in some way, she was kind of a drag queen, cuz when they first started to perform, she was known as like a hand dancer and they were lip-synching to songs directly. And then dancing with their like, making hands hand gestures. And yeah, and then then the singing came along. I am. Musically. When you look at the moment though I can't take anything away from them cuz they're Pioneers. Oh not. But Mike is interesting because every woman in you know, around Tina Turner's Time. Rock and Roll was invented, all wanted to be Diana, Ross. They did not want to, you know, or or screen like the music. But I think if I look at but I think if you look at again, let's talk about social climate, right? You can think about it Diana. Ross Dionne Warwick were these black women with these wage pop voices that became that were very palatable to what was going on. No, we didn't want us, you know. I remember hearing, you know, reading an interview or reading reading something and they wage Tina and they, you know, they were like this wild jungle animal and blah blah blah and they talked about Patty screaming and yelling and all of this. And if you think about the early sixties, you know, black people were dead. Not of black people were coming, still coming out of the great, migration of the thirties forties and fifties. And it was about for some people it was about assimilating and being packable to white folks and Tina Turner was not doing that. Musically like you listen to Nutbush City Limits and you know what the speed limit, you know, off clean. What's amazing about too is that, you know, they said, I could is the guy who came up with the first rock and roll song. Rock Rocksino becomes the queen of rock and roll but Rock in 88. Yeah, you know you you look at you look at Ike Turner with Rock and ninety-eight. You log truck bearing with Like My Ding-A-Ling and Roll Over Beethoven. And and so you know, they were smack dab in the middle of early, race records and so dead. Here they are creating and shifting, and changing black music. And then, again, you turn around and you get a flip, you know, like big mama. Thornton's version of hound dog. Sound, like a hell of a lot different than Elvis Presley's version of hound, dog. And that's, you know, part of the plot of Dreamgirls to write, but either Elvis was, but they even talked about Elvis for singing color of music and black music. I'm not going to use the other word that they called it. But, you know, they talked about Elvis, four years, singing black music. And so I think if you look, you know, music is what I do. It's a, it's very much my world. It was a, it was that thing, I look at those artists and it's something about.
