Billy Idol officially becomes a U.S. citizen: 'And he did it the proper way' ... /23590782/

Taryn Ryder / Nov 15th 2018

Billy Idol is officially a U.S. citizen — and the rocker managed not to tick off people online with his naturalization ceremony, a rare accomplishment these days.

The official Twitter page of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services tweeted photos of Idol getting his citizenship Thursday. “It’s a nice day for a naturalization ceremony,” they shared. (The government’s got puns!)

Given the fact that immigration is one of the touchiest political topics currently, it was refreshing to see that the comments were, well, mostly nice. Maybe that’s because people were happy he did it the “right way.”

Of course, there were a handful of uncreative caravan-type jokes.

A comment about Idol taking jobs from hard-working Americans, like former Journey frontman Steve Perry, showed a bit more flair.
