Queens Podcast

Today we are discussing the one and only Queen of Rock n Roll, Tina Turner.

BUT OMG CONTENT WARNING, Y’ALL. If you are not in a place to listen to a story that includes a couple of different types of abuse, then this won’t be the episode for you. Come back and meet up with us in 2 weeks when we discuss the second part of her life.


Born Anna Mae Bullock Nutbush, Tennessee in 1939, Turner’s childhood wasn’t exactly a chill one. Tina experienced abandonment from a young age, but found herself living a rock n roll lifestyle by the age of 17 when she met the charismatic Ike Turner. For better or for worse, she was tied to Ike for the next 16 years while experiencing some of the highest highs and lowest lows of her life.
