American star Tina Turner, naturalized Swiss, died at the age of 83 on Wednesday May 24. From each of her songs, the queen of rock’n’roll made a show. Sexy outfit, feline gait and a powerful voice with which she had imposed her style. In her music as in her life, she had learned to ward off fate and control her destiny. From 1966, Tina Turner chained the tubes with Ike Turner. But the cocaine and the violence of her husband then took as much space as the music.
A special relationship with France
In July 1976, Tina Turner ran away from a hotel in Dallas (Texas, USA) with her four children and a bus ticket, then disappeared for ten years. But the artist resurfaced in the 1980s, also distinguishing himself in the cinema. Tina Turner had a special relationship with France. In addition to her second home on the Côte d’Azur, the interpreter of Simply The Best had been an honorary citizen of Villefranche-sur-Mer (Alpes-Maritimes) for more than 20 years.
