Ageless Cher turns 73 today!
Let’s face it, there has never been anybody else like Cher. And there never will be.
At 73, thank God, she’s still going strong.
She is a forever star who has been a part of our lives since the 1960s when she reached the top of the pop charts as one-half of Sonny and Cher.
Then came television variety show stardom and a string of solo hits before splitting from Sonny.
Cher re-emerged in the early 1980s as an actress who quickly became an Oscar-winning movie star.
Cher then began to disappear for stretches but she resurfaces just enough with tops hits (Believe), the occasional movie (Burlesque, Mamma Mia 2) and new albums (Closer to the Truth, Dancing Queen).
Best of all, Cher continues to perform live both on tour and in Las Vegas, is prolific on Twitter and speaks her mind about politics and more.
It was so wonderful to see Cher receive the Kennedy Center Honors last year which was so well-deserved. It is shameful that she has nit been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame considering she has had a number one single in six different decades. If they can find room for Darlene Love, they can find room for Cher. I’d also tout for for the Presidential Medal of Freedom but she wouldn’t want one from Donald Trump!
Long live Cher!
