Tina Turner Ready to Surrender U.S. Citizenship

Legendary singer, Tina Turner, may turn in her U.S. passport in order to become a Swiss citizen according to reports.

"I'm very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here," Turner told the German newspaper, Blick. "I cannot imagine a better place to live."

The "What's Love Got to Do with It" hit-maker, 73, is a Tennessee native, but has lived in Zurich since 1995. She is awaiting an approval confirmation from the Swiss federal and state authorities.

"Tina Turner will therefore also give back her U.S. citizenship," her rep told Swiss newspaper Zuerichee-Zeitung.

Tina Turner released her last studio album, 'Twenty Four Seven,' in 1999, which landed atop of the Swiss Album Chart.
