Well, if you ever want to literally be in limbo, that's the route to go.

Not a bad idea, but Swiss life is more expensive I believe. But it is more beautiful there and not many crazies as the US

More beautiful than where? I've been to the Alps, and I've been to Montana. Give me Montana any day. And that's one state out of fifty.

Well, according to the article she's been living in Switzerland since the mid 90's. How big a deal is it then?

I kinda liked more Gerard Depardieu's spectacular desicion to move to Russia 'cause he and the French government had different views on the tax policy. Now that's some real entertaining celebrity gossip/craziness stuff.

Why would anyone want to move to Russia? Surely there are better tax havens.

Switzerland I can understand. But Russia?

My point is, it's rather silly to say Switzerland is more beautiful, when America has so much more diversity, and places that match the Alps in physical beauty.

Sorry if that went over your head.

I don't have the hard facts myself, but there's funny clips when the big Depardieu hugs an almost frighten Putin.

Edit: I would imagine that if you're a celebrity with lots of money, you could live quite a good life in central Moscow. But I agree, I prolly would've chose some tax paradise somewhere else.

I drove through Switzerland once, on my way to Italy. Lovely looking country. Great if you can afford to live there.

Good for her. Europeans will probably forever treat her as a goddess, whereas she's faded into obscurity as of late in the U.S.

Europeans as if we were all from the same country....
And why do you think she will treated as a goddess over here ? I think each EU country has its share of "has been" ( as not in their prime ) singers and one from the US will not be the second coming of the Christ
