Tina Turner News Archive
If you can't own a true Bob Mackie gown, then why not at least own one of his original sketches?
Throughout the last 50 years, Mackie has delivered nothing but colorful and dramatic flair, so owning one of his sketches is definitely a piece of art in its own right.
Prints will range from $69-$179 and are available through his website.
Seems like a deal to us! Having a true Mackie hanging on your wall could be one hell of a conversation starter.

That would be SO cool!
Kings of Leon has shared that the band has been asked by Agent 007 himself, Daniel Craig, to write and perform a version of the quintessential Bond movie theme for the latest installment of the franchise.
In fact, he's asked THREE times!
Drummer Nathan Followill revealed Craig's persistence in a recent interview when the subject was brought up, saying:
Oh no! We really hope this isn't true!
She's been through enough!
The National Enquirer is reporting that Tina Turner has become so overwhelmed with the tragic loss of her sister and her former stepson Ike Jr.'s grave illness that she's started to drink heavily enough for friends to be concerned that she needs rehab!
Her biographer, Mark Bego, reveals:
"Losing Alline and seeing Ike Jr. so sick has hit her like a one-two punch. Tina has been in misery ever since her sister's death. And now Ike Jr. has taken a turn for the worse. Her friends fear she is drinking heavily in private to get over the pain. Those closest to her are beginning to believe that going into rehab may be her only salvation."
Here's hoping that if this, again, is in fact the case, that her friends and loved ones can get her the help that she needs before it's too late!
She's getting up there in age, she needs to be taking care of herself if she wants to stay healthy!
Poor thing! You're in our thoughts, gurl.

Kelly Clarkson is wrapping up work on her fifth album, and she has been posting about it online.
"I record my last song on the 25th of this month and then we will be releasing the album!" Kelly wrote Monday night.
She has been working more this month with writer/producer Toby Gad, whose previous credits include Beyoncé's If I Were a Boy and Fergie's Big Girls Don't Cry, as well as songs with Kris Allen, Jordin Sparks and Allison Iraheta.
Also, Kelly says, Eric Hutchinson, our pal who opened for Kelly on her fall 2009 tour (and whose hit OK, It's Alright With Me was used on an American Idol episode in Season 9), has penned one of her favorites on the new album, a song "highly influenced by Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder."
When it comes to inspirations, Kelly writes:
"This album was influenced by Prince, Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow, Radiohead and there's a little bit of a Country vibe/influence on a couple of songs. … [T]he album is gonna be a great pop record! I can't wait for y'all to hear it!"
Hope the album's as good as it sounds.
We can't wait to hear it!

And the fun fashion continues!
Venus Williams debuted yet another fancy tennis outfit from her line EleVen on the Wimbledon courts Monday.
The tennis superstar said of her ensemble:
"My dress was inspired by Tina Turner. It still has a lace motif and I think it's just a fun, elegant dress. Here it's all about white. There is no illusion this time. I love Tina Turner. Obviously, she's just an amazing, amazing artist, just a survivor. She reinvented herself. Plus she looks great. I've loved her forever. So the dress is really inspired by her."
We like it!
