Cher On Miley: “She can’t dance, her body looked like hell”

cher nyc performance

Cher‘s new album is coming out pretty soon so she’s hitting the media, guns blazing. She’s at a point in her career where she just doesn’t give a f-ck. Or rather, she does, but not personally. You know? She wants people to like her music but she doesn’t care if they like her. As told to USA Today,

Right before I walked out there [to perform on The Voice], I told my mom, ‘I’m so sweating it. I’m a has-been. My career is nothing.’ It’s my first time out of the box in 12 years, in front of 20 million people.

It gets harder when you’re working against girls in their 20s. Tell me who at my age is making a record and wants to be on radio? When I started out, I thought I’d be dead by now.

In her interview with USA, she was asked about Gaga and Miley, of course. She and Gaga recorded a duet together that it turns out, neither of them was happy with (“I wasn’t thrilled with my part, and she wasn’t thrilled with her part, and neither one of us were thrilled with the music.”) Of Miley and her VMA performance, she said what I, and I’m pretty sure lots of people, have been thinking:

I’m not old-fashioned. She could have come out naked, and if she’d just rocked the house, I would have said, ‘You go, girl.’ It just wasn’t done well. She can’t dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn’t great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don’t stick out your tongue if it’s coated.

BOOM BASH BOSH BOOF. Biff. Biff Tannen. That’s some hardcore Biff Tannen stuff. Like Back to the Future. She’s telling Miley to make like a tree and GET OUT OF HERE.

Cher Turned Down The Russian Olympics Because Of the Whole Anti-Gay Thing

Cher is a total queen, and is totally loved by queens, so it’s no surprise that performing in an anti-gay country like Russia wouldn’t really appeal to her. Then again, having a gay icon perform in an anti-gay country seems like it wouldn’t really appeal to Russia themselves, but apparently that’s not the case as she was offered to perform at the 2014 Winter Olympics in the country as well as to be the ambassador – both things she turned down.

From Macleans:

Q: What do you think about what’s going on in Russia right now?

A: I can’t name names but my friend called who is a big oligarch over there, and asked me if I’d like to be an ambassador for the Olympics and open the show. I immediately said no. I want to know why all of this gay hate just exploded over there. He said the Russian people don’t feel the way the government does.

Good on you, Cher! I think lots of people are boycotting Russia now. I certainly would stay out of Russia at the moment, considering… but they do have those princess-y castles that look like they’re out of fairy tales, so it’ll be a shame to miss out on those. And yes, I’m being flippant.

Check Out Cher’s New Album Covers

Cher‘s 26th studio album, Closer to the Truth drops at the end of the month (9/30 or 9/24 according to E Online and Digital Spy, respectively) and she makes a stunning 27-year-old on the album covers. Both covers are pretty much the same except for her pose. God, I would kill to see the un- photoshopped versions of these! Well, not kill. That’s a bit extreme. I would take someone’s gum. The LAST stick in their pack. And I would take it without even asking!

She’s got high hopes for the album, telling ABC’s 20/20 (via E Online),

I would say, truthfully, I’m not a huge Cher fan, and I’ve said this a million times, but I think this is probably the best album I’ve ever done.

Her first single is “Woman’s World“. Cher is 67 and still totally badass. For a look “closer to the truth” at a pre-plasticized Cher, check out her first album cover:

Goddamn she was cute. And she had an é!
