Happy birthday to the glorious Miss Tina Turner (née Anna Mae Bullock, born 26 November 1939 in Nutbush, Tennessee). The fierce Bold Soul Sister – described over the decades as “the woman God put on earth to show other women how to dance in high heels” and by both Playboy and Look magazines as “like a lioness in heat” – turns 81 today! All hail the queen!
