This is a complicated story. So, Salvador [Dali] invited me and Francis Coppola and Sonny [Bono, her ex-husband] and my girlfriend Joey to dinner. And so we got to the apartment and they’d been having an orgy in the other room. People were in different stages of undress, but mostly dressed. They were staggering around and speaking French, just crazy, you know? So I have my hand on the chair and I see something in the crack, and it’s a beautiful, painted rubber fish. Just fabulous. It has this little remote-control handset, and I’m playing with it, and the tail is going back and forth, and I’m thinking it’s a child’s toy. So I said to Salvador: ‘This is really funny.’ And he said [she puts on a deep, comedy Spanish voice]: ‘It’s wonderful when you place it on your clitoris.’
Oh, to have been a fly on the wall when Cher met the famous surrealist painter, Salvador Dali! Are we surprised there involved an orgy and a vibrator shaped like a fish? No, no, we are not. Sadly, she did not keep the vibe.
After the jump, here’s Cher weighing in (of course) on Miley Cyrus’ sexual hijinks and actually disagreeing with Sinead O’Connor that Miss Cyrus is letting herself be a “prostitute” for the music industry. Keep reading »
Some people just do not understand the words “’til death do us part.” According to Cher, who married Sonny Bono when she was 18, but then divorced him 11 years later, her ex-husband, who died in a skiing accident in 1998, is still hanging around, playing ghostly pranks on her. Cher recently told a questioner on Reddit:
I actually think that Sonny makes a light go on (in the house). I have a beautiful chandelier that he makes the light go on when it is impossible, there is no power on.
Well, far be it from me to suggest that Cher might want to look into an electrician. Maybe ol’ Sonny is haunting her. If so, I hope he’s doing something more exciting than turning the light on (how cliche, Sonny). Here’s some other things that Sonny’s ghost might want to pull on Cher. Read more on The Stir…
There are very few earthbound humans (to my knowledge, at least) who do eccentric better than Cher. At age 67, with over 40 years in the industry under her belt, she’s as fabulously nutty as ever, and has just released her first album in 12 years. To wit: Us Weekly has a typically unremarkable celebrity-penned segment on their website called “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me.” Standard responses are usually limited to platitudes like, “I love baking and iced coffee!” But don’t we all, Emma Roberts? Cher, on the other hand, well … I’d like to see her “25 Things” list made into a book. It’s name-droppy, surreal, and strangely endearing, which is a fitting metaphor for Cher as a whole. The first item cites a discussion she once had over lunch with Stephen Hawking and, cross my heart and hope to die, only gets better from there … Keep reading »
Cher performed her new single, “Woman’s World” on the season four finale of NBC’s “The Voice” last night. She basically rocked it, but not without being super weird as only Cher can be.
There were two main things that surprised me about Cher’s performance. The first was her hair choice. This was the ultimate source of weirdness as far as I’m concerned. There must have been at least three wigs involved in the making of this hairpiece. It is so many things at once. It is both a bright pink fauxhawk and a sleek black hairstyle. I can’t really say that I have anything to compare it to. Cher described her look as “luxe punk” which sounds so cool that I can’t even be that mad about her hair. Keep reading »
