The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll died on Wednesday (May 24)) at her home in Kusnacht, near Zurich, Switzerland, after six decades of entertaining and motivating the globe.
‘Proud Mary,’ ‘What’s Love Got to Do With It,’ and ‘I Don’t Wanna Fight’ were among her career-defining singles.
Turner took part in a Q&A with The Guardian only six weeks before her death, answering questions about her biggest fear, how she wishes to be remembered, and her celebrity crush.
When asked what her biggest fear is, the eight-time Grammy winner said that she never wishes to go back; she has suffered so much in her life that she wants to keep going forward.
When asked to identify a celebrity crush, Turner said that she has always had a crush on Mick Jagger. She loved him when he toured with the Rolling Stones.
After answering a poignant question about how she wishes to be remembered, the best-selling musician, who has sold over 100 million albums globally, said she wanted to be remembered in a special way.
“As the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll,” the vocalist of ‘River Deep – Mountain High’ said.
After the news of her death was disclosed on Wednesday, tributes poured in for the renowned performer.
Bryan Adams, a Canadian rock artist, paid homage to his buddy Turner, whom he described as an ‘inspiration’ to millions of followers.
