When we think rock star royalty, there's no one quite like Tina Turner. From "What's Love Got to Do With It" to her epic Grammys duet with Beyoncé, Tina's micro-miniskirts, bedazzled minidresses, frayed Levi's jackets, formfitting metallics, and all-black leather getups have showcased one of her finest features — besides her rockin' pipes, of course — and that's her gorgeous gams. To say she's got a leg up on us would be an understatement; her signature wild hair, nonstop dancing, and edgy yet feminine style go hand in hand with her sparkly, sky-high hems. But what do we love most about this talented performer? She's the epitome of 73 years young, and we hope to look half as good (and just as leggy) as her. In honor of Tina's birthday, we're rollin', rollin' down the (memory) river — take a look back at eight of her sexiest and leggiest moments.
We want more! Spring Couture week has wrapped and left us wanting more decadence, more designs, more clothes. In case you missed them, check out our Chanel, Christian Dior, and Jean Paul Gaultier reviews. In between the shows, celebrities and fashion insiders attended parties and posed for front row photos, reminding us of the glamorous life couture breeds. How fun is this pic of Tina Turner, Elsa Pataky, Roberta Armani, and Anne Hathaway at the Armani Prive show? Tina, you look great! Take a peek at the rest . . .
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes joined Anne Hathaway backstage at the Tina Turner concert in NYC last night. Anne deserves a night of celebration now that Rachel Getting Married is leading the 2009 Independent Spirit Award nominations, including a best actress nod for her. Katie finally had a chance to relax on her night off from Broadway after a busy week with the Beckhams. We'll get to see more of Tom this Thursday when Barbara Walters interviews him for her Most Fascinating People of 2008, and he opens up about why he doesn't talk about his religion anymore after his Oprah couch-jumping experience. In the meantime, he seemed to be enjoying himself with his wife as he watched Tina perform for his second concert since October.

The Queen of Rock 'n' Roll is here to make your Halloween a blast. It's time to release that inner diva and shine as one of the sultriest female rockers in history. Tina is known for her legendary legs, lips, and hair, so play up those features in fringe and sequins — definitely something short, sexy, and playful. Maximize your stems in a pair of sexy high heels, don a shaggy Tina wig, and shake your bon-bon!
Tina Turner and Beyonce were rolling, rolling, rolling on a river Sunday night with their duet rendition of "Proud Mary" at the 50th annual Grammys. Between Beyonce's sequin-studded dress and Tina's silver capris, the two were literally sparkling. But how did you like the performance? Can Tina still rock? And did Beyonce hold up her end of the bargain? Check out the video and then let me know your take.
Many of the ladies on the red carpet had the chance to change outfits since they performed and presented as well. In fact, during some parts of the show the beautiful boys like John Mayer and John Legend were simply background fodder to Alicia Keys and Fergie's fabulous voices. We were especially excited to see Alicia getting down in an age appropriate outfit that made her shine. Kanye's touching performance to his mother also included a shockingly obvious hint to the orchestra to stop the send off music so he could thank his mom when he won for Best Rap Album.
Tina and Beyonce shook things up in their tight hot silver numbers (Tina, you still got it but the Posh wanna-be outfit was a bit much). Carrie Underwood changed into a hot little black number with sexy boots while Rihanna kept it playful with her fun feathery dress. The most anticipated performance of the night definitely belonged to Amy Winehouse who also won big. Her mom even stood by her side while she accepted Record of the Year. Overall, the performances were great and even though this was a special Grammy year - turning 50 and all - we hope next year they can keep the show to under 3 hours. That was certainly a long one folks.
We have performances of Tina and Beyonce and Kanye's tribute and speech so check those out after the jump. You can enjoy all the pics in slideshow format or for a huge gallery of pictures including Kid Rock, Jason Bateman, Foo Fighters and Prince just read more
Well, we knew the music industry's biggest award show would be huge this year since it was the Grammys' 50th birthday. Between the Beyonce and Tina Turner duet, Kanye's touching performance, and Feist's simple rendition of, "1 2 3 4," this year's Grammy Awards did not disappoint.
What did you think? Was this one of the best Grammy shows you've seen in awhile? Or were there better, more memorable years?
Happy birthday, Grammys! The granddaddy of music awards shows turns 50 tonight, with a special show packed full of performances and tributes to greats musicians from the past and the present.
In addition to Amy Winehouse's live-via-satellite performance, there are a ton of other much-hyped acts taking the stage tonight: Beyonce and Tina Turner will duet, as will John Legend and Fergie and Josh Groban and Andrea Bocelli. Aretha Franklin, Feist, Kanye West, and Alicia Keys are among the other performers, and the casts of Cirque du Soleil's Love show and Across the Universe will unite in a special tribute to the Beatles. Plus, one lucky instrumentalist will get to join the Foo Fighters in a special performance outside the Staples Center in LA.
The awards will be broadcast live on the East Coast starting at 8 p.m. EST and tape-delayed on the West Coast starting at 8 p.m. PST. Will you be watching? To see all the performers and presenters who have been announced so far, just read more
