Legendary hair, an unstoppable career, a show-stopping voice and legs for days. No, we’re not talking about Beyonce. We’re talking about the fabulous Tina Turner. The Grammy-award-winning songstress turns 75 today and she still looks (and sounds) as good as she did when she first appeared on the music scene in the 1960s.
She topped the charts for hits like “The Best” and “What’s Love Got To Do With It,” but it’s also Turner’s perpetual sex appeal that’s made her unforgettable. Though they’re the singer’s trademark, even landing her an endorsement with Hanes legwearin her 50s (yes), it seems she wasn’t always so accepting of her perfect pins.
“I always had long legs. When I was young, I used to think, “Why do I look like a little pony?” Turner said in an interview with Oprah. But clearly, she’s grown to love them. The star’s reportedly had her legs insured for $3.2 million.
And for good reason — the star’s career is still hot, hot, hot. She went on a 50th anniversary tour in 2008 and 2009 and of course there were plenty of leg-baring outfits involved.
So, because we have a serious case of leg-envy, here are her sexiest short-skirt wearing moments:
Happy birthday, Tina!
