I know when you think about Cher so many words come to mind: Iconic. Legendary. Timeless. Well, get ready to start thinking of another: Hero. Not only does Cher gift the world with the best Twitter feed of human existence and constantly hate on Donald Trump: she also saves lives! Cher out here truly doing the Lord’s work!
It looks like 2018 isn’t turning out to be the complete flaming anal fissure that 2017 was. A jury said “Bye Bitch!” to Bill Cosby, North and South Korea vowed to stop warring, the Golden State Killer was possibly caught, Ryan Murphy made the best decision of his career by casting Joan Collins in the next AHS, the IRS discovered a glitch in my 2016 tax returns and sent me a $16 check, and now we’re learning that ABBA is going to cause ears to jizz out glitter by releasing new music. I’m going to pray that Alexander Skarsgard pops up on my Grindr tonight and messages me with, “Looking?” It can happen! Because if ABBA got back together, anything is possible!
Last night’s Bruno Mars Appreciation Ceremony, er, the Grammy Awards was chock full o’ boring ballads, but one part kind of brought out the funnies and it was a skit involving musicians reading Fire And Fury (the book by Michael Wolff about all the allegedly crazy and stupid shit going down in Trump’s house). Everyone from Cher to Cardi B took turns reading about Trump’s love for McDonald’s and maniacal ways, but the “surprise” reader at the end was Hillary Clinton. Trump’s supporters naturally lost their minds seeing their favorite punching bag take time away from Cardi B’s gift of sound effects. Continue reading
Cher! That’s Cher as a sassy, rich gramma! Wait. Did they kill off Meryl Streep? In the trailer, they’re talking about her like she’s in the ground. Did Rose McGowan write the screenplay?
Watch it before they yank it!

This looks all sorts of awful, much like the first one. The first one was all sorts of awful but still somewhat enjoyable if only for laughing at Pierce Brosnan trying to sing. But a sequel means lesser-known ABBA songs and a girl that looks nothing like Meryl playing Young Meryl. Did anyone need to know the history of those overalls? Nope.
If Meryl is actually in this movie, it would reunite her with her Silkwood castmate Cher. Silkwood is a boss-ass movie and Cher won the Oscar for her portrayal of a depressed lesbian roommate. One of my friends is probably going to force me to go see this with them and that will make me a depressed lesbian roommate.
It’s hard to have a movie that’s all about dancing queens and not include the pop star icon who induces oh-so-many queens to dance, which is why Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again will include the biggest icon of them all: Cher!
Back in the day, the Gap paid randomly paired celebs gobs of cash to pretend like they actually wore that shit for the sake of a good ad. Like Madonna and Missy Elliot trying to out-do each other, or Sarah Jessica Parker ditching those Sex And The City broads to dance around with Lenny Kravitz. Those ads seemed to pay off, since you couldn’t really fire a spitball off in homeroom back in the day without hitting someone in one of those chunky GAP hoodies.
Fast forward to today, and the only thing crowding into a Gap is piles and piles of debt. Execs must be taking a page from the NBC reboot playbook, because we’re now seeing celebs pop up back in ads – like CHER! And…Future? Continue reading
