Simply the Best

Miss Tina Turner is 80 years old today...

...all hail!

Rather than rely on what "the expected" by way of a tribute, let's try a lesser-known performance by the great lady...

Congratulations, Ma'am.

Grace and favour

“I would like to be remembered as a person who did her job well. An understanding, kind and decent human being.”

“I’ve been accused of being cold, snobbish, distant. Those who know me well know that I’m nothing of the sort. If anything, the opposite is true. But is it too much to ask to want to protect your private life, your inner feelings?”

“The idea of my life as a fairy tale is itself a fairy tale.”

“I'm basically a feminist. I think that women can do anything they decide to do.”

Princess Grace of Monaco would have celebrated her 90th birthday today. One of the most beautiful faces in Hollywood, taken away too soon.
