Cher: If I Could Turn Back Time, If I Could Find A Way

2.14.2010

In the early 1960s the pop duo Sonny & Cher dominated pop music charts, popular fashion trends, and pop culture. After the demise of their duo, Cher went on to produce one of the most amazing bodies of creative work as a recording artist in music history.

Her music literally spans 4 decades, defying all “fading pop icon” logic, arousing her competitors to both  jealousy and mutual adoration. She was outrageous, lovable, outspoken and very very easy on the eyes. Whatever Cher wore was talked about for days on end, whatever she said was listened to and taken to heart. There was a formidable intelligence behind her striking good looks and when she opened her mouth you knew it.

I grew up with Cher’s music, from my childhood in the 60s, to clubbing in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. She has defied the odds of survival as a living music legend again and again, like her peer Tina Turner.

Cher was more beautiful before she began resculpting her face and nose with plastic surgery, and I often wonder if she regrets her facial reformations through the years. She remains a living legend and a national treasure. Enjoy.
