Tina Turner has been with music executive Erwin Bach for decades, but these days, she describes the relationship as her “nirvana.”

“It’s that happiness that people talk about, when you wish for nothing, when you can finally take a deep breath and say, ‘Everything is good,’” she told Hello! magazine. “It’s a wonderful place to be.”

The “Proud Mary” singer, 73, who wed Bach in a lavish ceremony near their home in Switzerland earlier this month, opened up about her unusual green wedding dress.

After seeing the Swarovski-embellished gown at a Giorgio Armani show in Beijing, “I thought, ‘I gotta have that, even if I never wear it,’” she said. “Then I thought, ‘I know! That will be my wedding dress!’”

While the bride wore green, female guests, including Oprah Winfrey, were asked to wear white, and the men in attendance (Bryan Adams was one) dressed in black tie. And despite Turner’s Buddhist background, the ceremony reflected “the American tradition I grew up with, tailoring it a little bit to me,” she said.
