LOS ANGELES - (FOX NEWS) -- Billy Idol became a U.S. citizen on Wednesday in Los Angeles, holding the American flag as he took the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services tweeted out a collage of images of the 62-year-old rock star in the ceremony.
"It's a nice day for a naturalization ceremony," the USCIS wrote in a punny tweet. "Congratulations on Billy Idol on becoming a #newUScitizen today in Los Angeles, CA."
