Tina Turner Quotes To Give You Strength From A True Legend


There aren’t many who can rock a stage like Tina Turner. A natural-born rock star, Turner fought hard to be where she is today. Tina Turner quotes help us to learn a little bit about the true Queen of Rock and Roll.

Turner is truly a self-made woman. As a young girl, she was abandoned by her mother and thrown out by her father. From then on, she worked to build herself her own career. She cleaned houses, even left her home of Tennessee. Finding herself in St. Louis, Turner’s true passion for music blossomed.

That’s where Turner met Ike. He completely changed her life, for the best and the worst. Ike did open up Tina more to the musical world.  But, he dragged her through the mud while doing it.

The Queen returned to the stage, debuting a record-breaking album, Private Dancer, with one of the best songs maybe ever: “What’s Love Got to Do with It?”

Today, Turner is happily remarried and living in gorgeous Switzerland. She actually renounced her American citizenship to become a Swiss citizen! It makes us incredibly happy to see her living her best life.

Tina will forever be an inspiration. Even at 81 years old, she looks better than most. Reading her wise quotes can teach us a thing or two about being ourselves and making our biggest dreams come true.
