Tina Turner Leaves US For Switzerland

We guess the big wheel kept on turnin'! Because it brought Tina Turner all the way to Switzerland!

The What's Love Got To Do With It? diva has been living in Zurich for well over a decade, but she always kept her U.S. citizenship.

Well, now Tina is reportedly giving up The Best country in the world for what? Chocolate? And watches? And cheese? And knives? And skiing?

Man, Switzerland has a lot of cool stuff actually…

And Tina thinks so too! She's asking for full citizenship, which we hear the Swiss are only too happy to grant.

More like Tina Turns-her Back On America! JK! You should be allowed to hang your hat wherever you feel like it in this cray cray world!

Besides, where else would we keep a national treasure but in Zurich? LOLz!

If you can't own a true Bob Mackie gown, then why not at least own one of his original sketches?

The designer responsible for dressing such divas as Cher, Liza Minnelli, Tina Turner, and Diana Ross is selling 46 prints of his original sketches.

Throughout the last 50 years, Mackie has delivered nothing but colorful and dramatic flair, so owning one of his sketches is definitely a piece of art in its own right.

Prints will range from $69-$179 and are available through his website.

Seems like a deal to us! Having a true Mackie hanging on your wall could be one hell of a conversation starter.

Does Tina Turner Have A Drinking Problem?

| Filed under: Sad SadTina TurnerRehab

tina-turner-drinking-heavily

Oh no! We really hope this isn't true!

She's been through enough!

The National Enquirer is reporting that Tina Turner has become so overwhelmed with the tragic loss of her sister and her former stepson Ike Jr.'s grave illness that she's started to drink heavily enough for friends to be concerned that she needs rehab!

Her biographer, Mark Bego, reveals:

"Losing Alline and seeing Ike Jr. so sick has hit her like a one-two punch. Tina has been in misery ever since her sister's death. And now Ike Jr. has taken a turn for the worse. Her friends fear she is drinking heavily in private to get over the pain. Those closest to her are beginning to believe that going into rehab may be her only salvation."

So tragic!

Here's hoping that if this, again, is in fact the case, that her friends and loved ones can get her the help that she needs before it's too late!

She's getting up there in age, she needs to be taking care of herself if she wants to stay healthy!

Poor thing! You're in our thoughts, gurl.

Stay strong.
