Ever since I heard "Private Dancer" at 7-8, I was hooked. Later, when I heard "River Deep Mountain High" I became a life long fan. A period of obsession with Ike and Tina and the Ikettes(music group) and seeing What's Love Got to Do with It, I was convinced: Dress to the nines, no matter how ragged, tired, sweaty or out of sorts. No matter what...look good, take pride. I admire her ability to survive/thrive through years of abuse, be a mother, be a consummate professional, leave her abuser, all while looking fierce, and... Fuck! She rules. Fearless.
OH and what? She just toured in 2008.
