IT'S OFFICIAL: CHER JUST WON THE BILLBOARD AWARDS

Posted by: Twins 22.05.2017

 

 

Let it be known: Beyoncé may be queen, Drake may have broken Adele’s record for the most Billboard awards in a single year, Nicki Minaj may have given a nine-minute medley, and BTS may have made us believe in boy bands again, but when it came to bringing the house down, there is no one—no one—quite like Cher.
The 71-year-old singer was on hand on Sunday night at Las Vegas’s T-Mobile arena to accept the Billboard Music Awards Icon award, taking the stage to the strains of her 1998 song “Believe” in a pink-tipped white wig, heart-shaped pasties, and a glittery 2017-style reprisal of what could have been one of any of her infamous Bob Mackie naked dresses. (It’s not for nothing that Kim Kardashian West was among those saluting her as a style icon this week—Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner may like their glittery catsuits and red carpet thongs, but sorry girls! Cher was there first.)

The legendary pop pioneer trotted out in the bedazzled mesh catsuit and leather jacket ensemble from “If I Could Turn Back Time,” skipping and singing as if no time had passed since that song’s 1989 debut—let alone the 15 years since her last performance at an awards show. The camera cut to her son, Chaz Bono, who beamed from ear to ear as his mother accepted her trophy from Gwen Stefani and took the mic. “So, I’ve wanted to do what I do since I was 4 years old, and I’ve been doing it for 53 years,” Cher said, amid the roaring cheers of the audience. In one of the front rows, Diddy raised both hands and bowed in deference. “Thats not an applause thing, I turned 71 yesterday—and I can do a 5 minute plank. Just saying.”
“I wanna thank my mom,” the pop idol continued, “because when I was really young, my mom said: You’re not going to be the smartest, you’re not going to be the prettiest, you’re not going to be the most talented, but you’re going to be special. And when I met Sonny, he said the same thing. And there was really nothing about me that would lead one to believe that I was going to be special.” The star went on to thank some of her legendary collaborators, including Phil Spector, and the Wrecking Crew—though she was perhaps keenly aware that the audience may not be exactly up to snuff on their music history, going on to explain, “I worked with people you might not know, but they were like the greatest people in our industry. . . . And I just have to say I think luck has so much to do with my success, I think it was mostly luck, and a little bit of something thrown in.” They just don’t make ’em like that anymore.

CHER COVERS BILLBOARD MAGAZINE

Posted by: Twins 18.05.2017

 

 

Cher’s hotel suite has an indoor swimming pool.
She has been performing at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for years, including her (try not to laugh) Farewell Tour in 2002. MGM always gave her a suitably fabulous suite. But one day, a few years ago, she stumbled on a secret.
While walking the grounds with an MGM executive, she noticed a hidden part of the sprawling casino -- a gated enclave called The Mansion, which resembles an 18th century Tuscan palace. The Mansion has 29 villas that are, she was told, reserved for high-rollers -- Middle East sultans, venture capital titans or Donald Trump relatives who can lose $250,000 in a weekend and giggle about it. These villas can’t be requested or reserved. They are for the most “I” of VIPs.
I want to stay in one of those said Cher.
Oh, no no no said the casino executive, possibly even bowing to her. We don’t do that. Not ever. Never.
I want. To stay. In one. Of those she repeated.
She met each refusal with insistence. Eventually, they relented.
Close to midnight, she’s sitting on an elegant couch in one of her MGM suite’s approximately 100 rooms, and thumbing out a Twitter message.
Jen Ruiz, Cher’s personal assistant and protector for the last 24 years, peers over her shoulder and winces. “Cher, don’t,” she says gently.
Cher laughs. The delight of doing things she shouldn’t do still resounds in her, even at the age of 71 (which she turns on May 20). “Jen, I am who I am, it doesn’t make any difference what I’m supposed to be.” It’s easy to imagine this exchange of caution and defiance happening several times a day.

Cher is set to give her first awards-show performance in more than 15 years at this month's Billboard Music Awards.
The singer will perform her 1998 hit "Believe," which spent four weeks at No. 1 and 31 weeks total on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, at the May 21 show.
Additionally, she'll receive the Icon Award, which has previously been presented to Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez, Prince, Stevie Wonder, Neil Diamond and more.
"I'm honored to receive the 2017 Billboard Music Awards Icon Award and take the stage to celebrate my love of music with my fans," Cher said. "Seeing so many powerful artists — especially female artists emerge and take their place in history through the years — has been incredible. I'm honored to be amongst the previous Icon Award winners and to celebrate this milestone achievement by performing 'Believe' on the show."
The 2017 Billboard Music Awards will broadcast live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 21, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC. The show is produced by Dick Clark Productions.
