The Queen of Soul has left the country. Actually, she’s been living in Switzerland for almost 20 years, but Tina Turner is now formally relinquishing her American citizenship.

Turner, who is fluent in German, took the oath of Swiss nationality in July, the Washington Post reports.  The 74-year-old singer, who married her boyfriend of 27 years (also in July), said she had no plans to return to live in the U.S. and maintains no strong ties to the country.
