Do you know how fucking great Tina Turner is? If not (or even if so), please watch this video before continuing:

As you may have guessed, we have some pretty solid love for Tina (Nick got front-row tickets for his mom to her 2008 "farewell" tour; Alessandra regularly sighs "oh, Tiiiiiina!" whenever one of the singer's tunes pops up on the Gloffice playlist). Those legs, that wiggle, that voice!

Anyway, her April German Vogue cover story (the 73-year-old's first appearance on any Vogue cover! Unbelievably!) is making us super happy. Tina's signature honey-blond shag is out in full force, as is her unmatched ability to be sexy in one moment (vintage Armani sequins) and casual the next (a crisp men's oxford tucked into wide-leg jeans), never not looking incredible. I mean, the headline sort of says it all: "Simply the Best!"

    This photo spread/article is fabulous! There's only one thing wrong about it: It's NOT the American and or British or French Vogue! Honestly, they should have all come out with the same issue! This is THE QUEEN after all. How is it Tina's not been on the cover of Vogue since 1984-2012?! I hope there's an English translation of this article. The pictures (as I already suspected) are STUNNING! It looks like she lost some weight for the shoot...love the golden shag mane, the original Private Dancer circa 1984 look...still and forever, her best, most classic look.

    This just solidifies what I've been thinking for the last couple of years: Tina Turner needs to do one more album, a Jazz album, featuring all kinds of original Jazz material - from classic Jazz to Smooth Jazz to Jazz rock to Chill to Blue Note - and it will be the great coda to her recording career.

    The title: TINA TURNER ...JAZZ

    I also hope she gets a part in the new Star Wars trilogy (since she's always wanted to be in Sci-Fi space movies piloting a ship) as Lando Calrissian's wife.

    George, make that happen!
