Quotes (12)

  • Cher: (on her upcoming Las Vegas performances) It is going to be a visually unbelievable show with brilliant choreography. Our set moves down from the ceiling, in from the sides, up from the floor. We have screens in the foreground, the center and the back. You'll see a different stage for every song.

  • Cher: I really don't think of myself as a singer. I think of myself as an entertainer, and the best place I do it is onstage.

  • Cher: I know it sounds weird, but how bad, how hard can dying be? I figure it's all right because he's [Sonny's] done it, and if he can do it, I can do it. I just feel a little less anxious, a bit more comforted about being dead.

  • Cher: I hate my fifties. They suck. I never felt older until I hit 50. And the way I first noticed was through my work. When I was 40, I was playing opposite somebody who was 21, and nobody noticed. But at 45, as you start to look older, all you can do is look good for your age. There's a certain span of time - and I'm very much there - when you have to wait till you can play the Shirley MacLaine/Anne Bancroft roles. So what am I supposed to do? Like, go camping for I0 years?

  • Cher: After Sonny and I separated, I got my first tattoo. I thought it would be something different, a statement of freedom. 'Good' girls didn't get tattoos then, no one was doing it.

  • Cher: Sonny was the first person who died that I was really close to, so for me, it was traumatic on a number of levels. It was so hard to really just think of him as not there. Someone to just die. And he wasn't sick, so it wasn't like I was ready for it.

  • Cher: My mother was the most creative, fantastic person and would come up with great things for us to do. She'd buy art supplies and all of us would sit around painting. I was lucky. But then she would be really depressed and have a hard time coming out of her room. See, when you are young, it all seems normal.

  • Cher: I talk a lot to homeless people, and I find them to be very interesting-when they don't flip out on you, which happens too. I found the most interesting conversations I've ever had were talking to people who have absolutely nothing-nothing to lose, nothing to gain. They're like children that way, they can just tell the truth.
