Guess who was showing off her tattoos at the 25th Anniversary Genesis Awards yesterday! Hint: she is a vegetarian! Look below for the answer:
This week’s ‘From The Vault is guaranteed to wake you up! Originally performed by Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1969, ‘Proud Mary’ was famously covered by Ike & Tina Turner in 1971. This live version of the song was performed by Tina in the later 1980’s, years after her divorce from her abuse husband in 1978.
Tina’s influence on the current generation of entertainers is undeniable. Melanie Fiona, Fantasia and even Janet Jackson have taken a page out of the book that she wrote. Of course, Tina’s most notable fan is Beyonce who emulates the icon in her stage shows, vocal performances and videos.
Sadly, all artists aren’t as passionate about developing their craft by studying the greats in the manner that Beyonce has done with Tina. For example, Rihanna claims to be a big fan of acts including Destiny’s Child, Mariah Carey and Madonna but it is unlikely that they would claim credit for her off-key squeals or lazy choreography. The again, she does seem to have mastered Mariah’s ‘Honey’ 2-step routine.
Nicole Scherzinger recently performed on the French version of ‘Dancing With The Stars’. The singer delivered a flurry of high notes during renditions of the Pussycat Dolls’ ‘When I Grow Up’ and ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’ from her upcoming ‘Killer Love’ LP which hits stores tomorrow in the UK.
