MATTEL RELEASES TINA TURNER BARBIE DOLL TO CELEBRATE SINGER’S HIT SONG ‘WHAT’S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT’
Toy company Mattel is celebrating the 40th anniversary of Tina Turner’s hit song with a Barbie created in her likeness.
The doll, which is part of their Barbie Signature Music Series, is wearing an outfit inspired by the music video for one of her songs, “What’s Love Got to Do With It.”
She’s in a black mini dress paired with a denim jacket — and don’t forget about that signature hairstyle.
The eight-time Grammy winner enjoyed huge success in the late 1960s and early 1970s performing with her husband, Ike Turner, but the couple divorced in 1978 after a stormy marriage in which she was beaten.
She retired from performing after her last tour, which ended in 2009.

Justin Timberlake has sold his song catalogue to Hipgnosis Song Management, in a deal that gives the company all the rights to the artist’s previously released music.
Hipgnosis Song Management have bought 100 per cent of Timberlake’s rights, including to tracks like ‘SexyBack’, ‘Rock Your Body’, and ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’.
The deal pertains to Timberlake’s publishing rights but not his recording rights, which means songs that he either wrote or co-wrote.
As he wasn’t a songwriter on some of NSYNC’s best-known hits such as ‘Bye Bye Bye’ and ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’, these are not included in the sale but the majority of his solo work will be included.
The financial details of the sale have not been disclosed.
Timberlake is the latest artist to get involved in the growing music acquisition market, following fellow pop acts like Bruno Mars, who sold a portion of his catalogue last year to Warner Chappell.
