The Queen of Rock music is now 78 and hasn’t done many public appearances in these recent years
Legendary Tina Turner tells it all to CBS’s Gayle King
Tina Turner is a living legend, on her own right. The Queen of Rock music is now 78 and hasn’t done many public appearances in these recent years. After years of speculation, the star finally tells it all on her recently published memoir “My Love Story” and explains the motives that took her to withdraw from the public eye. She recently agreed to be interviewed for CBS by Gayle King who traveled to Zurich, Switzerland, where Tina has been living for decades now and has become a Swiss citizen. In the interview, Tina opens up about how she endured a stroke, intestinal cancer and kidney failure in recent years. She also talks about how her husband Erwin offered her one of his kidneys to save her life.
But when things were starting to get back in track, Tina’s son Craig took his own life in July 2018, a subject also approached on the interview. Tina also shatters the fan’s hopes of one day coming back to the stage, despite being missed by many and remaining one of the most relevant figures in music. The singer explains that she’s retired and in the CBS interview, when asked if there is anything more in life that she wants, Turner replied. “No. I have everything. When I sit at the Lake Zurich in the house that I have, I am so serene. No problems. I had a very hard life. But I didn’t put blame on anything or anyone. I got through it, I lived through it with no blame. And I’m a happy person.” Other subjects Tina talks about are the reasons that made her leave the United States and also her abusive relationship with first husband Ike Turner.
