GENEVA » Tina Turner is on her way to becoming a Swiss citizen.

The American rock diva has lived in the Zurich suburb of Kuesnacht since the mid-1990s. The local Zuerichsee-Zeitung newspaper said on its website the local council announced its decision to grant the 73-year-old Turner citizenship in an official notice published in Friday’s edition.

The decision still requires formal approval from cantonal (state) and federal authorities.

That is great. Let me be the first from Hawaii to offer congratulations. The last time I saw Tina Turner was at Diamond Head crater in a private concert for Pepsi.

Is there something wrong with the good ole USA? Is it for taxes or allegience to the Swiss country since she's been living there for a long time. Where is the "why" is she doing it in the article.
