    Regardless what Tina may want to think, she will always be a US citizen.

    Not if she follows the proper procedures for renouncing it.

    What I find interesting is that it doesn't relieve military duty. Obviously it's for the draft, which in my opinion won't happen, but really, do you really want someone that renounced their US citizenship to be forced to serve in the US military?

    My point was more along the line that Tina will always be a US citizen as she was born in this country. Just because she wants to live in another country and claim their citizenship does not change the fact she was still born in the United States

    No she won't. Not if she follows the proper procedures.

    I'm sorry that my point is not getting across to you (must be from having one to many Subway's). You can renounce your citizenship on a legal level but you can not renounce the fact you were still born somewhere else.

    Yet what you actually said was that she would still be a citizen.

    What does she know about what is going to happen in this country that we don't. Becoming a Swiss citizen is sounding better every day.

    It doesn't seem like any sort of political statement or anything.

    And that is a big IF. She would have to take the specific steps to renounce her citizenship.

    Taking Swiss citizenship no longer requires the renouncing of citizenship in other countries and the US allows citizens to take the citizenship of other countries without renouncing US citizenship.

    One article reports: "She’s an American icon, but Tina Turner is reportedly about to renounce her U.S. citizenship in order to become a Swiss citizen." source But it may be a misunderstanding between the source and the media.

    Personally I hope she retains her US citizenship.

    ...yes. Hence my comment about if she follows the proper procedures.
