Tina Turner Gives Up U.S. Citizenship

Tina Turner Gives Up U.S. Citizenship

Another racist Obama-hater? That’s a joke.

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 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.

She’s 73 years-old, her longtime partner lives overseas, and as far as I know she’s not in any way making a political statement.

She’s also been a class act her entire life.

Godspeed, Tina. You’re welcome back anytime.
