Oh, Tina, you never did anything Nice and Easy. Can we wish her all the best on the next leg of her journey?

Asked by canidmajor (21012points) May 24th, 2023

So many college parties were punctuated by Proud Mary. I will miss her profoundly.

I had not heard this prior. She had quite a life, that one. She wasn’t one of my favorites but definitely an icon for my generation.

“Proud Mary” was part of a memorable night in my college years too. And “River Deep, Mountain High” was one of the first singles I bought as a kid. A life fully lived.

RIP Tina Turner!

RIP. I hadn’t heard either.
The Ike and Tina movie had a profound affect on me, in regards to emotional and physical abuse. That’s when I started looking out for other women and children more closely.

RIP to the Queen. Such a woman to overcome so much and have a better second half than most first halves!

Oh! This is heartbreaking! I can’t tell you how my gay Facebook feed is exploding with sorrow!

Hail to the Queen of Soul and rock and roll. You have no idea how many teenagers sang Proud Mary in their cars with the radio jacked up full blast.

Tina’s just joined the gang on The Nightshift!

She was an amazing advocate for women’s rights in marriage and divorce by publicly exposing Ike’s cruelty.

RIP We will never see her likes again. Sad.

Fucking terrible news…

I can take some solace in the fact that I think she truly loved the best life a person could. Obviously she had ups, and downs. But she seemed to be able to rise above everything.

A magnificent example of what a human can/should aspire to be…

Her music has given me experiences I could never pay enough for…

Tina. Thank you. For what you have given us. Another comfort is that her music will live on essentially forever. At least as long as humans exist…

Journey well Tina. I love you…

Tina, we don’t wanna lose you. We don’t even wanna say goodbye.

It was 30 years ago that the limo fight scene from What’s Lurve Got to do With It, started my crush on Angela Bassett.

Searching for words…what an amazing, wonderfully strong woman. I’m sorry for what she went through, but am so glad she came through it. I didn’t even know what was going on with Ike until I saw the movie, appropriately titled, “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” To think…so many of those times we saw her singing her heart out, she’d been abused just before the show.

It’s a sad day, but also a celebration of her life.

Angela Bassett reacts to the death of Tina Turner: ‘I am humbled to have helped show her to the world’ in ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It’

“Her final words to me — for me — were ‘You never mimicked me. Instead, you reached deep into your soul, found your inner Tina, and showed her to the world,’” Bassett said. “I shall hold these words close to my heart for the rest of my days. I am honored to have known Tina Turner. I am humbled to have helped show her to the world. So on today, while we mourn the loss of this iconic voice and presence, she gave us more than we could have ever asked. She gave us her whole self. And Tina Turner is a gift that will always be ‘simply the best.’ Angels, sing thee to thy rest…Queen.”

This is a good article announcing her death and some highlights of her life. I learned a number of things I didn’t know.
