Tina Turner ‘Deserves More’ Viral Interview Explained
Tributes came from the likes of Mick Jagger (who called Tina his “wonderful friend”) and Angela Bassett (who played Tina in the 1993 biopic What does love have to do with it.)
Among the photos, performance videos and other memorabilia shared online is a clip from 1996. 60 minutes interview at the late journalist Mike Wallace and Tina’s French estate.
In the clip, Mike and Tina walk around his estate in Nice, France, overlooking the French Riveria.
Although the interview detailed Tina’s life, including her early career and legendary comeback, Tina’s response to one of Mike’s questions about her home life resurfaces (eg. here and here) in light of his death.
“Do you feel you deserve all this?” Mike asked, referring to his French estate.
“I deserve more,” Tina replied before laughing.
