Tina Turner, The self-styled Queen of Rock and Roll, turns 69 today. Congrats, you old Acid Queen, you. Not too many people know this and I’m not 100 percent sure it’s true, but I’ve heard Tina actually retired from show biz two or three years ago and bought a lovely little chintz covered b&b in Lake Tahoe, where she performs for her guests in the evenings along with her old friends Aretha and Diana Ross. Lookin’ good, guys!
That’s Tina’s doppelganger selling out the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey tonight. You can see she’s slightly transparent sometimes if the light is just right.
