Tina Turner returns US Citizenship; becomes a Swiss Citizen and Weekend Links!

by Kate on January 26, 2013

She has the best legs ever, dancing and singing in her shows, all over the stage in high heels. In fact, American Pop legend Tina Turner who is 73 years old, reportedly insured those very famous legs for $3.2 million dollars with her boobs insured for $790,000! Since 1995, she’s been living in Switzerland with her longtime partner, German record executive Erwin Bach, and has now made the decision to give up her US Passport and her US citizenship. Apparently, Tina has passed a local civics test and interview, according to an official announcement, and will soon receive Swiss citizenship.

Heartbreak, Miss Tina!

“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.

By the way, Tina Turner’s real name is Anna Mae Bullock and she was born and raised in Nutbush, Tennessee. She rose to fame as part of an iconic music duo with husband Ike Turner. Their relationship was filled with domestic violence and they divorced in 1978. She then launched her solo career and well you know the rest: from Proud Mary to Simply the Best to What’s Love Got to Do With It.

She’s a total old school ROCKSTAR so take notes Nicki Minaj and some of you other losers.

Tina Turner was great, but the best Proud Mary was by Creedence Clearwater Revival.

Thanks for the link, Kate!

I love and adore Tina Turner. I wish her well and if I could afford it, right now, I’d do the same damned thing. Good on her! This is no longer the country I grew up knowing. It has changed, drastically, and it scares the crap out of me.
