An inspiration to many.

I never saw her ‘live’ on stage but I did enjoy watching her on the tv. She had a tough start and a violent marriage but she got through it all. The energy she had in her later years was something I admired. Simply the Best.

DH saw her in Sydney before her eighties resurgence and has been a major fan ever since - ultimate show woman, amazing performer.

Tribute just starting on BBC1 if anyone is interested.

She was the soundtrack to my childhood and I still frequently listen to her!!! Amazing lady. Fly high Tina!

Lots of love to her. At least she way outlived that bastard, Ike. Saw her in concert about 15 years ago. She was an absolute force

I saw her at Wembley in 1987. Amazing!

I'm sad about this. She was an amazing woman and brilliant singer, pretty unique really. Such a tough life and her comeback in early middle age was inspirational.

I loved the biopic of her life, What's Love Got To Do With It, with Angela Bassett. It's irritated me somewhat that a recent romcom has the same title, couldn't they have used another name? But everything in TV and films seems to be recycled now.

She'll be missed.

Amazing woman. Such a survivor and that energy! So sad to hear of her death.

Saw her live many times, truly an icon of our time in both career and life. A Tina show was mesmerising- she did a lot of firsts, broke many barriers and was for a very long time the biggest selling touring artist of all time.

The Tina documentary is well worth a watch.

I heard today at one point after she left him, she was on food stamps. What an inspiration and what a beautiful woman. May she rest in peace.

I was listening to her music today and few hours later I found out she died. You’d think some people will live forever. Amazing woman.

I have her book which I am going to read at the weekend. She was an amazing lady

purpleboy · 25/05/2023 14:26

I was so sad to hear the news. She is a complete legend and trailblazer. What a icon and role model. 💜

RIP Tina xx

How can the Star and Mirror newspapers include that man’s photo, the one who beat her for so many years, with hers on their front pages?
