Cher sets the record straight on Madonna: ‘I never hated her. I just thought she was a bitch”
I don’t know why it is, but Madonna has never, ever, ever done a thing for me through any of her incarnations. I’ve never had much interest in her at all and it seems like I should.
Cher, however, had me at I Got You Babe.
So, you gotta know I just love this little tidbit from a Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ Q&A over weekend.
The legendary diva, 67, was asked: ‘Do you still hate Madonna?’
Cher is not one to lie in an interview so she said: ‘Madge, no. Actually I don’t. I never hated her, I just thought she was a bitch.’
Cher also said of the Material Girl: ‘Actually I quite respect her. Actually I think Madge might be one of the most amazing artists I’ve known. I don’t like everything she does, for sure, but she is always riding the crest of the wave. She always saw trends WAY before anyone else, and had great videos. So, besides saying ‘WTF is MDNA’, I’m fine with it.’
In the summer of 2012, Twitter followers turned on Cher for making a sly dig at Madonna.
‘WTF is MDNA?’, she tweeted before posting a sarcastic comment about the record’s name once fans explained it was a play on words referring to the party drug MDMA, more commonly known as ecstacy.
‘How tasteful!’ Cher replied.
Then there was backlash before Cher tweeted that she didn’t mean to offend: ‘Doesn’t any fkng body cut slak 4 fkng mistakes! It not like I cut her heart out with a spoon! Madge & I are cool!’
