What Gerard Depardieu is to France, Tina Turner may be to the United States.

The Nutbush, Tenn. native is giving up her US passport, in favor of a Swiss one.

"I'm very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here. ... I cannot imagine a better place to live," Turner told the German newspaper Blick.

Turner 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 state and federal authorities.

Turner's rep told Zuerichsee-Zeitung  the singer wanted to "clarify her situation."
"Tina Turner will therefore also give back her US citizenship," she said.
