GENEVA (AP) _ Tina Turner, who celebrated her 65th birthday last week, is enjoying her quiet life in Switzerland, but reportedly has no plans to retire from performing.

The rock diva completed her final world tour four years ago, but still gives live performances in Switzerland. Her latest was Saturday night, the day after her birthday, the Swiss weekly Schweizer Illustrierte said Tuesday.

Turner will star as the Indian goddess Shakti in Ismail Merchant's new film, ``The Goddess,'' and she recently released a new CD. Her screen credits also include 1985's ``Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome'' with Mel Gibson.

``Switzerland is wonderful,'' Turner told the magazine. ``I love the people, the lakes, the mountains _ simply everything.''

She has lived in the exclusive Zurich district of Kuesnacht since 1994. She also has a ski chalet in Klosters, the luxurious Swiss alpine resort.
