Twitter Reacts After Patti LaBelle’s BET Awards Tribute To Tina Turner Went All The Way Left

June 26, 2023 / Posted by:

Last night the annual conference of participation trophies known as The BET Awards took place during its allocated time slot on the last Sunday in June. And although there were many moments when I looked at the screen and asked nobody in particular, “Who the fuck is this?” there was one face I will always recognize, Patti LaBelle. In the past, she has both performed and been honored, but last night she took to the stage to pay tribute to the iconic Tina Turner, who sadly passed away last month. Unfortunately, another sad thing was Patti’s performance, which is being raked over the coals as the long-awaited sequel to her critically acclaimed 1996 Christmas special titled “Where My Background Singers!”

Many have paid homage to Tina on social media to honor her legacy and mourn her loss. But while others simply wrote words of praise, another outspoken artist from the new generation, Lizzo, strapped on her dancing boots to honor Tina in the right way with an electrifying performance of Proud Mary at her show in Phoenix, Arizona last night.

The World Has Lost The Iconic Tina Turner

This one hurt straight to the bone. And if you heard a high-pitched “Noooooo,” earlier, that was me reacting to the news that legendary icon and trailblazer Tina Turner has died. Tina’s rep delivered the news of sadness in this statement:

“Tina Turner, the ‘Queen of Rock’n Roll’ has died peacefully today at the age of 83 after a long illness in her home in Kusnacht near Zurich, Switzerland. With her, the world loses a music legend and a role model.”

Tina was 83.

Tina Turner Will Finally Be Inducted Into The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame

May 12, 2021 / Posted by:

Tina Turner is 81 years old and has been performing professionally since she was 17. Lady is a legend. This is why my gob was officially smacked when it was announced Tina would be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. How wasn’t she in there already? They literally call her “the Queen of Rock n’ Roll”!  Now, teeechnically she was inducted as one half of Ike & Tina in 1991, but having to share the honor with your abusive ex-husband isn’t the same thing. So it’s about goddamn time.

Here’s The Teaser Trailer For HBO’s Tina Turner Documentary “Tina”

February 24, 2021 / Posted by:

Lord knows we can never have enough well-made documentary films about our female musical icons. OK, we’ve had enough about Whitney, but you know what I mean. I’m talking about ones that explore the struggles and triumphs of women who rose to stardom (or in some cases 20 feet from it) despite the odds. As such, HBO has just released a teaser trailer for Tina, their upcoming documentary about Tina Turner, which, according to IndieWire, draws on “a wealth of never-before-seen footage spanning 60 years, audio tapes, personal photos, and new interviews with Turner herself.” Yes, thank you, I’ll have two. While her life and career have already been portrayed on the big screen, you’d be hard-pressed to find a subject more iconic, inspirational, or necessary than Tina Motherfucking Turner. You know what, on second thought, I’ll take five, and I’ll have a look at that dessert menu as well.

The Time Tina Turner Shot Randy Jackson

July 3, 2011 / Posted by:

If you’re name is Randy Jackson and you’re not a judge on American Idol, you have to let the ESCANDALO flow off your tongue in order to summon the spotlight and Randy Jackson of the Jackson family did just that on Twitter yesterday. During a Twitter Q&A (I can’t) with his fans (I can’t: the sequel), Randy told a hilarious story about the time Tina Turner shot at him after he caught her and his girlfriend off guard. Well, if you want to get shot at by Tina Turner, simply tap on her shoulder while her tongue is visiting your girlfriend’s Nut Bush City Limits. Randy wrote this mess yesterday:

Yes, Tina Turner shot me. I have the scar to prove it.

Having said that, there was no violence on my part, nor have I ever owned or carried a weapon.

I went to Tina’s house to see my girlfriend. I guess I caught them off guard. Hmmm…. Next question.

It was in the Eighties. And I don’t hold a grudge against Tina, she’s a great artist an asset to our industry.

No, it’s not right to ever put a bullet in a bitch even if they spook you while you’re doing whatever it is you were doing with his girlfriend, but this is Tina Turner we’re talking about. Tina lived for years wishing that she had eyeballs glued onto the back of her wig so she’d know when Ike Turner was about to make her eat some cake or some shit! So you have expect that if you sneak up on Tina, her pistol is going to spit a bullet at your ass! If you’re ever going to throw Tina a surprise party, make all the guests wear helmets and a bulletproof vest.

And this story is the second best thing to ever come out of Randy Jackson. The first being Perpetrators, of course!
