Tina Turner has “always” fallen in love with Mick Jagger.
Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll revealed who the celebrity she fell in love with was in an interview with The Guardian on April 8, a month and a half before her death.
“I fainted when we went on tour with the Rolling Stones,” Turner, who died Wednesday at age 83, detailed about the outlet at the time.
Jagger and Turner shared the stage several times, but their most important performance was at the 1985 Live Aid concert at Wembley Stadium in London.
The rock star was at the English stadium where Turner ripped her skirt while singing “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll” together.
They have sung along with other music icons such as Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie, Cyndi Lauper, and Billy Joel.
The “One of the Living” singer recalled that night in her 2018 memoir “Tina Turner: My Love Story”: “Mick and I could never just stand there and sing – it wasn’t us. We had to do something.
“She looked at me. I was wearing a tight black leather top and skirt, and I could see a mischievous idea taking shape. “Is that skirt coming off?” she asked slyly. ‘What?’ That was my scary answer.

“‘I’m going to take off your skirt,'” Jagger told Turner at the time.
“I asked him why, but it was too late to talk about it, Mick had already decided to do it,” she wrote.
The “Steamy Windows” singer retired from her decades-old career in 2009 after completing her 50th anniversary tour.
On Wednesday, Turner’s representative confirmed his death, telling the Telegraph that the singer died at his home in Küsnacht, near Zurich, Switzerland, after a long illness.
