In April 2007, Tina revealed her distaste of reality TV talent quests, saying her profession was being prostituted by the explosion in reality TV talent programs.
In 2007, Tina performed in the musical, Chicago, in London's West End.
Tina: A woman with confidence, who knows what she wants, is referred to as a bitch. A man who knows what he wants is assertive, inspiring, a leader.
Tina: (criticising reality TV talent shows) I feel as though my job has been prostituted, totally. I've spent 32 years honing my craft, I've had an extraordinary journey. It used to really disappoint me when people used to say, 'that Talent Time, it'd never work again'. Well, you guys are doing it now except you are taking what was a genuinely beautiful, wholesome concept and you are bastardising it and you are exploiting the people.
