(AP) Tina Turner is on her way to becoming a Swiss citizen.


The American rock diva has lived in the Zurich suburb of Kuesnacht since the mid-1990s. The local Zuerichsee-Zeitung newspaper said on its website the local council announced its decision to grant the 73-year-old Turner citizenship in an official notice published in Friday’s edition.


The decision still requires formal approval from cantonal (state) and federal authorities.
