    Tina Turner 'to become Swiss, give up US passport' - FRANCE 24

    AFP - 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.

    I don't blame her a bit. Just one of many.

    Good for her. I'm a big Tina fan and very happy that - as the headline read - Ike Turner beats Tina to Death!

    I believe Switzerland has one of the top 3 standards of living in the world. I hope to visit some day.

    Stories of people deciding they should be citizens of the country they've lived in for the last 20 years?

    Do tell.

    That is right - Switzerland has a high quality of life - along with Australia and the Netherlands I think...

    correct me if I'm wrong

    but isn't that country full, and by full, I mean 98% white?

    seriously

    You need a lot of crackahs for all that swiss cheese.
