Proud Tina

Tina Turner

Oh, Tina Turner, girl, where have you been? I had almost forgotten about you (almost — I mean, no one could ever forget those legs) when you popped up looking simply your best at the Armani show in Milan earlier this week. This is how a diva ages gracefully. At 67, you’ve let the larger-than-life shock of hair give way to a sleek bob and traded the short skirts for tasteful pantsuits. But you’re still fabulous. Over the years, you made us all feel like you were our private dancer. A quick look back:

I know you’re basically retired these days, but I miss you. Hell, I even considered listening to the cheesetastic “We Don’t Need Another Hero” again, just to bask in the glow of all that is you. So I was pretty excited to hear that you’re working on an album of new material. I mean, the world could use a little more Tina. No, make that a lot more Tina.
