Favorite Quotes from Cher
“Hate crimes are the scariest thing in the world because these people really believe what they’re doing is right.” – Cher
“Performers love to perform – that’s the thing that we do. I think one of the best things was being able to imagine anything that I wanted, anything that I came up with we could do because this theater is unbelievable.” – Cher
“Sometimes I don’t tell the truth, which is telling the truth about not telling the truth. I think people don’t tell the truth when they’re afraid that something bad’s going to happen if they tell the truth. I say things all the time that I could really get into trouble for, but they kind of blow over.” – Cher
“When I grew up, it was a time when women were just supposed to be cute and not have many opinions. My mother and her friends were quite different. They were all the most beautiful women you’ve ever seen, and they were very strong women.” – Cher
“So okay, I don’t want to be a traitor to my generation and all, but I don’t get how guys dress today. I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair-ew!-and cover it up with a backward cap and like, we’re expected to swoon? I don’t think so.” – Cher
“Women have to harness their power – it’s absolutely true. It’s just learning not to take the first no. And if you can’t go straight ahead, you go around the corner.” – Cher
3 Strong Lessons from Cher
Now that you know all about Cher’s net worth, and how she achieved success; let’s take a look at some of the strongest lessons we can learn from her:
1. Wear Clothes Only Suitable After the 9 pm Watershed
Let’s turn back time to 1989 and the infamous video for If I Could Turn Back Time, which caused a major upset amongst American Naval officials who were not informed of the raunchy nature of her ensemble.
Cher’s look for the video, which says “I’m here to straddle a cannon in a strategically placed ribbon and there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it,” was so shocking that MTV wouldn’t play it before the 9 pm watershed.
2. Sparkle and Sequins Are Your Two Best Friends
Lesson number four is not so much a fashion moment as a perennial sartorial statement for Cher, because the sheer amount of sparkle and sequins she has worn throughout her career must collectively weight a ton.
Cases in point: Cher in a full sequin and feather bodysuit at the 1974 Met Gala; Cher at the 1986 Oscars in her best ‘sonic the hedgehog does drag’ finest; Cher as Cleopatra at a 1988 Halloween party (she may as well have just come as herself). Bob Mackie, you still give us heart palpitations – but in the best possible way.
3. Believe in Life After Love
A song that sits beside Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive as an ultimate heartbreak survival anthem, Believe is truly one of the most moving pieces of pop music in the history of Cher-kind.
Even the heavy use of millennium worthy auto-tune (one that became known as ‘the Cher effect’, distorting her signature belting vocals into a robotic caterwaul) can’t knock the sheer emotion pulsating throughout. All together now: I DON’T NEED YOU ANY MORE!
