“Tina Turner, the ‘Queen of Rock’n Roll’ has died peacefully today at the age of 83 after a long illness in her home in Küsnacht,” her family said in a statement. “With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model.”
Anna Mae Bullock, popularly known by her stage name Tina Turner, is a singer, songwriter, dancer, actor, and author. She is one of the most popular female rock artists, and is known as the queen of the rock. Turner has received many Grammy Awards in various categories, and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Grammy Hall of Fame. She has sold over 100 million copies of her albums worldwide, which is why she has been named as one of the greatest singers of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. But all this success and fame did not come easy for her. She had to start from scratch as she had no formal training in singing. Above all, she faced a very difficult childhood. She met Ike Turner, whom she would later marry, when she was 16 years old. Ike helped her in getting recognized in the music industry and for many years, she only sang duets with him. She had a difficult relationship with Ike as he was an alcoholic and cocaine addict. He used to beat her and emotionally abuse her. She went through a major downfall in her personal and professional life after getting divorced from him, but thankfully she turned to Buddhism, which helped her concentrate better on her career. Private Dancer is considered to be her comeback album, which sold 20 million copies, and earned her prestigious awards. Turner is semi-retired, and has taken up the citizenship of Switzerland, where she currently resides.
