Tina Turner’s last photo before her death revealed

Tina Turner celebrated one of her many accomplishments in the last photo she shared of herself before her death.

The “Proud Mary” singer looked cozy at home in black pants and a matching sweater while wearing her hair down and going makeup-free in the snap she tweeted in March 2021.

Turner smiled and held up her fists in front of a big TV screen playing “Tina,” HBO’s documentary about her life.

“I am so excited to share this movie with you – seeing the concert scenes made me relive some of the proudest moments of my life,” she captioned the photo. “I simply had to sing along and dance around my living room.”

In the film, the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll looked back at her six-decade career, telling fans, “Some people say the life that I lived and the performances that I gave, the appreciation … I should be proud of that. I am.

“But when do you stop being proud? I mean, when do you, how do you bow out slowly? Just go away?”

Turner died Wednesday at her home in Küsnacht near Zurich, Switzerland, after battling a long illness. She was 83.
