It looks like Tina Turner is trading in her U.S. passport for a Swiss one.
The legendary rock/soul singer has been living in Kuesnacht, a suburb of Swiss capital Zurich, since the mid-1990s, and according to Associated Press, the local council has granted her citizenship.
The news was published last Friday in the Zuerichsee-Zeitung newspaper. Citizenship requires formal approval from state and federal authorities and Turner says she could not be more happy.
“I’m very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here … I cannot imagine a better place to live,” she said.
The ageless 73-year-old was born in Nutbush, Tenn. and rose to fame during the 60s and 70s as a member of the Ike & Tina Turner Revue. Her biggest hits included “Proud Mary,” “A Fool in Love” and “What’s Love Got to Do with It.”
According to a representative from her camp, Turner wanted to “clarify her situation” and “therefore also give back her U.S. citizenship.”
