After living in Zurich, Switzerland for nearly 20 years, Tina Turner is officially ready to make the northern European country her home.

According to Fox News, the 73-year-old will surrender her U.S. passport and adopt a Swiss one. “I’m very happy in Switzerland, and I feel at home here,” Turner told the German paper, Blick. “I cannot imagine a better place to live.”

Turner’s rep told the Zuerichsee-Zeitung, a local Zurich paper, she will “give back her U.S. citizenship.”

The Zurich council where she lives voted to grant the legendary singer and dancer citizenship; however, it will need to be approved at the state and federal level.

Are we the only ones more surprised that she actually hadn’t done this a long time ago?
