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

The American rock diva has lived in the Zurich suburb of Kuesnacht since 1995.

Now the local council has announced its decision to grant the 73-year-old Simply The Best singer citizenship, newspaper Zuerichsee-Zeitung revealed on its website.

Tina's spokeswoman Karin Rhomberg told the paper that the singer wanted to "clarify her situation".

"Tina Turner will therefore also give back her US citizenship," she said.

The singer previously told German language newspaper Blick: "I'm very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here... I cannot imagine a better place to live."

The decision still requires formal approval from state and federal authorities before it becomes official.
