Entertainment Tina Turner fans think she should be in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame
Tina Turner's Documentary Directors on How the Legendary Performer Has 'Reclaimed Her Identity' (Exclusive)
ET speaks with acclaimed documentarian duo Daniel Lindsay and T.J. Martin about the upcoming HBO documentary, 'TINA.'The two-hour documentary gives an intimate look at Turner's life and career, from her improbable rise to early fame, to her personal and professional struggles and her resurgence as a global phenomenon in the 1980s. The film also touches on her tumultuous relationship with her ex-husband, Ike Turner, and how she found love again with now-husband Erwin Bach.
Tina Turner's fans have taken to Twitter demanding the singer earns her a spot in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame as a solo artist.
The 84-year-old performer was inducted in 1991 alongside her former husband and collaborator Ike, with whom she stopped working in 1984 but has yet to be recognized for her own stellar career.
Fans and fellow celebs' messages of support were likely inspired by the HBO documentary Tina, which explore the enduring impact Ike's physical and psychological abuse had on the Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome actress.
Many of the tweets from Turner's fans bemoaned the fact that she was only put up for induction as a solo artist this year and that her talents as a singer and songwriter merited her nomination in past years.
Brian Austin Green and Sharna Burgess didn't rush romance
Brian Austin Green and Sharna Burgess didn't kiss for "four or five dates" and have been taking their relationship slowly.The couple have been dating for six months after opting for a "different way of dating" because the 'Dancing with the Stars' professional was looking for a "serious" relationship and really wanted to "get to know" her partner properly.
One of her fans wrote that she deserved to be inducted into the Hall Of Fame as for her ability to 'take a stage with...power and ferocity.'
Other tweets pointed out that the I Don't Wanna Fight singer's induction with Ike was inappropriate given her treatment by her former husband.
One Twitter user wrote that Turner's inclusion in the Hall Of Fame alongside her late spouse was 'blasphemy and shows how much this society will boost an abusive male and hold back the survivor.'
Although the organization has received much criticism for their perceived snubbing of the performer, its president, Greg Harris, toldthat her listeners can make their opinions known through a public vote.

The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame's selection process has been notably secretive over the years, and the decision to induct certain nominated individuals has been made by fellow artists and other music industry figures.
The open selection will be made from five of the top nominees that have been put up for this year's ceremony, and the winner will receive the distinction of having been selected by the official fan vote.
Other musical artists who have been nominated for induction this year include Rage Against The Machine, Iron Maiden and Fela Kuti.
The controversy over Turner's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame comes not long after the release of the HBO documentary Tina, which made its debut earlier this year.
In the feature, the hitmaker's relationship with her former husband was examined in greater detail, as was the abuse that she endured during her time with the musician.
