    In the clip, Mike and Tina walk around her estate in Nice, France that overlooked the French Riviera.

    Though the interview detailed Tina’s life, including her early career and legendary comeback, Tina’s response to one of Mike’s questions about her life at home is resurfacing (like here and here) in light of her death.

    “You feel like you deserve all this?” Mike asked, in reference to her French estate.

    “I deserve more,” Tina responded, before laughing.

    Damn right she did. Make her response, "I deserve more," your new motto, and check out the full 60 Minutes interview here.
