Now 66 years old, Tina Turner is more than just a rock 'n' roll legend. Beyond her remarkable talent, her vitality and power on stage, offstage she is a woman of courage and substance. Just this month, she was honored by the Kennedy Center for her life and career.

Turner has lived in Europe for more than a decade. In Europe, she became a bigger star than she ever was in the United States. "Yeah, no one in America knows that," she says. "Success in America - what I find with my homeland, nothing lasts very long. Europe is different. You're right there with them until you come back."

How American is she?

"Still very much American. I don't speak the foreign tongues over here yet. I'm paying American taxes. I have property in America. All of my business is run from America," she says.

Still, in her heart, she says she doesn't think she will go back home.
