Tina Turner’s First ET Interview in 1981 (Flashback)

ET revisits Tina Turner’s sit-down interview in 1981, after the late music legend had severed all ties with ex-husband and former singing partner, Ike Turner. The discussion was also a few years before Tina hit it big with her now-iconic solo album, ‘Private Dancer,’ that included her GRAMMY-winning single, ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It.’ At the time, Tina was getting ready to perform shows with Rod Stewart, following the critical praise of their ‘Hot Legs’ duet on ‘Saturday Night Live.’
