Tina Turner has urged Oprah Winfrey to get married.
Oprah and Tina have been friends for years and the talk show host was at her musician pal's wedding in July.
But Winfrey has come to the conclusion that such a union is just not for her.
When asked if she would leave earth as a "never-married" woman, Oprah made her feelings very clear.
"Yes," she told Access Hollywood. "Yeah, I think that's my final answer."
Turner exchanged vows with German music producer Erwin Bach at Lake Zurich, Switzerland. And Winfrey says the romantic affair made her wonder if she and partner Stedman Graham should tie the knot.
"I think that it's interesting that you would ask it because I thought about it again at Tina Turner's wedding," Oprah revealed.
"Because Tina was like, 'Oprah, you need to do this. You need to do it.' I was just thinking, 'Well, OK, would things really be different?' And no, I don't think so."
Winfrey admits if she and Stedman had got married, they probably wouldn't have lasted. She says her relationship with Stedman is so unusual it wouldn't fit within the confines of such a union.
"If you ever interviewed him, he would tell you that had we married, we would not be together today," Winfrey said of Stedman. "Because he's a traditional man and this is a very untraditional relationship."
Winfrey goes on to explain that she couldn't be a wife because the word holds responsibilities she doesn't feel capable of handling."I think it's acceptable as a relationship, but if I had the title 'wife,' I think there would be other expectations for what a wife is and what a wife does. First of all, you've got to come home sometimes," she said.
