The 79 years old singer , who has been retired for 10 years, is celebrating her musical, “A Swiss chateau. A Broadway musical all about her . And absolutely nothing she has to do.” To quote Tina in her interview with NY times,
” I don’t sing. I don’t dance. I don’t dress up,”
She is simply living her best life!

If you are a Tina Turner fan , like I am , you will remember those legs and the way she worked the stage during her performances. Her spiked hairstyle, toned legs and raspy voice were “Simply the Best ” , if I were to use the title of her hit song , which is 30 years old this month. You would also know of the history of abuse she suffered at the hands of her ex-husband, Ike Turner(now deceased).
Those days are way behind her, as she found true love with her German husband, Erwin Bach. Tina does not miss performing. She said this to NY times reporter,
“I am just tired of singing and making everybody happy. That is all I’d ever done in my life.”
However, “The Tina Turner Musical” can be seen all over the world . She gets to sit back, make her money and see many people play Tina. And why not? She deserves it all.
The production covers 4 decades of her life. And she is busy promoting her musical ad endorsing her “name sake” actors on social media.
