What’s Love Got to Do with It

What’s Love Got to Do with It

The 1993 classic, What’s Love Got to Do with It, is about the rise to fame of Ike and Tina Turner and their abusive and drug induced downfall.

The movie stars Angela Bassett as Anna Mae Bullock, a young woman with a huge talent, who later goes on to become Tina Turner. Laurence Fishburne plays Ike Turner, a guitar playing musician who discovers Tina’s talents.

Tina and Ike Turner become an overnight sensation. They are opening venues all over the country and in the mist of it all; Tina and Ike have a baby and get married.

The constant traveling and stress overcomes Tina and she winds up becoming extremely unhealthy, but that does not worry Ike, because he is only concerned with getting her back on the road and recovered to keep them successful.
