The “What’s Love Got to Do With It” star retired last year and has been keeping it on the low for a while. But today, when the New York Times put out their new article on how happy she is at 79, Twitter like to lost their minds.
Fans across the social media platform thought something bad had happened to her… and of course because she is a legend and national treasure, people went berserk.
Check out the responses of some concerned (but very relieved) fans.

After everything Tina Turner went through, she found a good white man to spend her life with, listen when she says he must shut up, and give her a kidney?

Thank God! I saw Tina Turner trending and about had a heart attack. I’m a MAJOR Tina fan! Like, an “I had a years long romantic relationship largely based on a mutual adoration of Tina Turner” kind of fan! https://t.co/q53jQYGsNN
