O Magazine interview

1 Oct, 2005

Turner gives an interview to O Magazine and talks about her thoughts on becoming a Buddhist.

The women who sold drugs to Ike said, What are you doing here, Tina? How can you live with this madness? Then one day, someone told me, Buddhism will save your life. I was willing to try anything. I started to chant. Once, I chanted, went to the studio, and put down a vocal, just like that. Ike was so excited that he gave me a big wad of money and said, Go shopping! I thought, This chanting stuff works. I was hooked. I still believe in the Lord’s Prayer. I find a form of the Lord’s Prayer in Buddhism.
