Singer Tina Turner has no fears about dying because she is curious about what lies ahead.

The 73-year-old What's Love Got To Do With It hitmaker, who is a Buddhist, reveals she has high hopes that the afterlife will be rewarding.

In a new interview with pal Oprah Winfrey, which aired in America on Sunday night (25Aug13), she said, "You can get emotional when you start to talk about death to people and even when it's time to leave and go to another planet, (but) I'm excited about that because I'm curious.

"I want to know what is it about, because no one can tell you, because no one has come back. I'm not excited to die, but I don't regret it when it's time because I've done what I've came here to do. Now it's pleasure. I've got great friends, I got a great man, now a great husband and I'm happy."

Turner wed longtime boyfriend Erwin Bach at their home in Switzerland last month (Jul13).
