The legendary CHER

Cher's successful foray into acting in the 80's is really one of the most interesting things about her. The fact she was able to be taken seriously as an actress (and walk away with an Oscar on top of that) is really commendable. She really worked her ass off to establish a career in film there for a while. 

I think she's even acknowledged on several occasions that she finds herself to be a better actress than singer. 

I wish Madonna had done the same thing in the 80's instead of going straight for star vehicles as the lead actress with very little acting experience. Cher honed her craft in supporting roles before taking on lead roles and eventually winning her Oscar. Desperately Seeking Susan as great as it was, was a perfect fluke . Aside from Evita, Madonna has always seemed to be more effective in smaller roles line Dick Tracey and A League of Their Own. She would still have an acting career if she continued on that path.

Well there was a time when she still could in the mid 2 late nineties, but her face got distracting,

we're so used 2 it now, but 4 moment there Cher had become synonymous with plastic Chergery,

I think it certainly damaged her potential 2 get certain parts....

I agree with this completely. But, I think at this point she could probably garner some kind of juicy supporting role in the same vain as Jessica Lange's comeback. While Cher doesn't have the acting chops as Lange, she's still pretty formidable. 

If she got the right role, I have no doubt that she'd be awarded as a legacy artist and wine a Golden Globe or something. If she can tour again, she sure as hell can act again.

There's long been rumours that Cher had a nervous breakdown backstage prior to presenting Best Picture to Rain Man at the 1989 Oscars.

It was said that Jack Nicholson had to console her backstage and almost co-presented with her. She does look a bit frazzled here - I guess the nerves of standing in front of the Hollywood elite will really do that to a person.

Cher Sounds Off on Trump's 'Cheating' & Why She's 'Not a Fan' of Her Six Decades of Hits


Cher’s hotel suite has an indoor swimming pool.

She has been performing at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for years, including her (try not to laugh) Farewell Tour in 2002. MGM always gave her a suitably fabulous suite. But one day, a few years ago, she stumbled on a secret.

While walking the grounds with an MGM executive, she noticed a hidden part of the sprawling casino -- a gated enclave called The Mansion, which resembles an 18th century Tuscan palace. The Mansion has 29 villas that are, she was told, reserved for high-rollers -- Middle East sultans, venture capital titans or Donald Trump relatives who can lose $250,000 in a weekend and giggle about it. These villas can’t be requested or reserved. They are for the most “I” of VIPs.

I want to stay in one of those said Cher.

Oh, no no no said the casino executive, possibly even bowing to her. We don’t do that. Not ever. Never.

I want. To stay. In one. Of those she repeated.

She met each refusal with insistence. Eventually, they relented.

Close to midnight, she’s sitting on an elegant couch in one of her MGM suite’s approximately 100 rooms, and thumbing out a Twitter message.

Jen Ruiz, Cher’s personal assistant and protector for the last 24 years, peers over her shoulder and winces. “Cher, don’t,” she says gently.

Cher laughs. The delight of doing things she shouldn’t do still resounds in her, even at the age of 71 (which she turns on May 20). “Jen, I am who I am, it doesn’t make any difference what I’m supposed to be.” It’s easy to imagine this exchange of caution and defiance happening several times a day.

Cher is in the newspapers today saying how she hates her music and said Believe was a nightmare. She wants to make music like Joni Mitchell.

I know that is is Cher's opinion and she is being completely honest.  I just wish that stars would not say they hate their biggest hits.  It is strange but songs such as Believe, Gypsies, tramps and thieves - songs she says she hates - are so loved by her fans. It is kind of sad if you go to see them in concert and you know they are singing songs they hate.   I also didn't like it when Madonna trashed Material Girl, called Into the Groove retarded etc- although I think she was just sick of them as embraced them fully later on.   It is their songs and their right but just ( stupidly I know )  is hard to hear !

Me too.ITG is my favourite M song so I was disappointed about her comments.

same here too. It's a real let down although I hope she makes the album she wants.

After reading the whole article, they're kind of skewing what she really said to make a 'headline' (which I hate).

At least to me (and I could be wrong), but she didn't seem to outright trash all her music. Just certain ones. I got the impression she likes her more rock based material better. The earlier material she isn't a fan of mostly because she had no say in it. And I didn't get the total impression she hates all the later dance material, just that it was hell to record (in terms of the process).

Anyway, I get that they have a different relationship to it than the rest of us, but I hate it when artists shit on their own work. If they could only understand how special most of it really is...

@jonski43 @VogueMusic  Yes, feel the same.  Love Cher.  It is funny though how many stars don't love their biggest hits.  I think they most likely get sick of them.  It still must give them a buzz though that their music is so loved by so many people.
