Legendary singer Tina Turner, dubbed the ‘Queen of Rock’ n Roll,’ has died at the age of 83 at her home in Switzerland after a long illness, her publicist Bernard Doherty told the PA news agency.
A statement read: “With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model.” Today, upon her passing, everyone around the world is declaring Tina Turner “an icon.” It doesn’t fit.
There are icons, an atmospheric leap, all of Heaven, and then, and only then, sitting above it all … is Tina Turner. Simply, The Best.
For the non-conforming male personas amongst us, and for the female personas among us, she was our phoenix rising from the ashes of toxic masculinity, over coming it, and becoming the epitome of the queen, the warrior, the triumphant.
