Tina Turner To Surrender U.S. Citizenship


The American Foreign Press is reporting that Anna Mae Bullock, better known to the world as , will shortly receive Swiss citizenship, and will in turn give back her U.S. citizenship.

A resident there since 1995, Turner said: “I’m very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here. I cannot imagine a better place to live.” She resides in a town called Kuesnacht, located in northern Switzerland. The 73 year old legend has reportedly passed a local civics test as well as an interview.

Turner’s career spans more than half a century. She began as a singer with Ike Turner’s Kings of Rhythm in the mid 1950s. She married Ike, and revealed her status as a survivor of domestic violence in her well received autobiography “I, Tina”.

Turner is a native of the unincorporated area of Tennessee known as Nutbush. The mayor of nearby Brownsville, Tennessee expressed surprise at the announcement: “Tina Turner — as she has gotten worldwide fame — has never forgotten her roots”, said Mayor Jo Matherne. “I think anytime a person, whether they’re world-renowned or the most meek and mild, makes the decision to change their citizenship, we need to step back and think what causes that decision.”
