Billy Idol is officially a United States citizen.
The British rocker joined a naturalization ceremony on Wednesday (Nov. 14), holding an American flag.
“It’s a nice day for a naturalization ceremony. Congratulations Billy Idol on becoming a #NewUScitizen today in Los Angeles, CA,” the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services tweeted, along with some photos from the ceremony.
Some requirement of becoming a naturalized citizen, according to USCIS’ website, include “Be a permanent resident (have a ‘Green Card’) for at least 5 years; be able to read, write, and speak basic English; be a person of good moral character; and demonstrate an attachment to the principles and ideals of the U.S. Constitution.”
