Swiss Girl!!!

Tina has become a Swiss citizen. She says, that she is very happy in Switzerland and that she feels at home there. She also says that she can't think of a better place to live in than in Küsnacht.




























































































Tina Turner 'to become Swiss, give up US passport'.

ZURICH — US pop legend Tina Turner, who has been living in Switzerland since 1995, will soon receive Swiss citizenship and will give up her US passport, Swiss media reported Friday. "I'm very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here. ... I cannot imagine a better place to live," Turner told German language daily Blick.

Turner, 73, who was born Anna Mae Bullock, lives in picturesque town of Kuesnacht, on the shores of Lake Zurich in northern Switzerland, and has passed a local civics test and interview, according to an official announcement published in the Zuerichsee-Zeitung daily.

The woman behind such hits as "Private Dancer", "Simply the Best" and "What's Love Got to Do With It?" will still need a green light from the canton of Zurich as well was federal authorities before she can receive red passport, the two papers reported.

Turner spokeswoman Karin Rhomberg told the Zuerichsee-Zeitung that the singer wanted to "clarify her situation". "Tina Turner will therefore also give back her US citizenship," she said.

Turner, who has learned German, reportedly moved to Switzerland in 1995 when her longtime partner, German record executive Erwin Bach, was transferred here.

Ehre für die Schweiz: Die Zürichseegemeinde Küsnacht hat Tina Turner das Bürgerrecht erteilt, wie die Gemeinde am Freitag in der «Zürichsee-Zeitung» amtlich veröffentlichte. Die Aufnahme ins Bürgerrecht erfolge unter Vorbehalt der Erteilung des Kantonsbürgerrechts und der eidgenössischen Einbürgerungsbewilligung, heisst es weiter.

Tina Turner lebe seit fast 20 Jahren in der Schweiz und fühle sich mit dem Land verbunden, teilte Turners Kommunikationsagentur mit. Daraus habe sich auch ihr Wunsch ergeben, Schweizerin zu werden. Die Sängerin hat sich nach ihrer letzten Konzerttournee 2008/09 aus dem öffentlichen Leben zurückgezogen. Die 73-Jährige schätze die Privatspäre, die ihr hier gewährt werde.
