First I'll admit I'm a Tina Turner fan. Even as an old broad she can still wail and dance her @$$ off! Over the years she's at various times been quiet or quite vocal about U.S. policies. She has been living in Switzerland for years, and now rarely comes into the country. And according to the LAT's, she's renouncing her U.S. Citizenship to become a Swiss Citizen.
Good for her!
Not that I'm a Swissophile, but she likes it better there than here, and she wants to vote, I expect, in a country where she lives. I would! But here's why I applaud. Instead of doing the typical Hollywood / music industry leftist [db] things that 99% of them do, she MOVED to a country that HAS policies she likes!
OMG, what a startling concept!
Tina Turner wants to become a Swiss citizen, and love has everything to do with it.
If you've been wondering what the iconic diva has been up to lately,
she's been living in Kuesnacht, a Zurich suburb, since 1995.
A Swiss paper wrote Friday that the 73-year-old had been granted
citizenship, according to the Associated Press. The Nutbush, Tenn.-born
singer has passed a local civics test and interview.
"I'm very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here.... I cannot imagine a better place to live," Turner said in Blick, a German newspaper.
The singer wanted to "clarify her situation," Turner's rep told the Swiss newspaper Zuerichsee-Zeitung.
"Tina Turner will therefore also give back her U.S. citizenship," her rep said.
But the decision still needs to be approved by the Swiss state, or
canton of Zurich, and federal authorities before the red passport is
Turner first went to Switzerland with German record executive Erwin
Bach, her longtime music manager, and has been living with him in a lake
house called Chateau Algonquin, ABC News reports
Too bad more of our Leftist nuts don't follow Turner's lead. Or Johnny Depp who moved to France because he said he liked the people, climate and the GOVERNMENT better there. Too bad more people with money and transportable jobs don't follow Tina Turners example.
