Tina Turner is poised to become a Swiss citizen.

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

The American rock diva, whose hits include "Simply the Best" and "What's Love Got to Do with It," 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.

Turner is "happy" in Switzerland, her spokeswoman told Voice of America News.

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