      That top photo of Cher is perfection.....and yes, probably air-brushed, etc....besides all of her cosmetic surgery....but still.....She's a classic beauty. She's also a loving and devoted Mom. Haven't seen nor heard from her at all in quite a while.....?

      Fascinating and entertaining facts about Cher, the classic, timeless, ageless beauty and talented lady. I've loved her music since (well, we can skip that part) she and Sonny belted out their classic "I Got You Babe", "They say our love won't pay the rent"... Loved this hub. Sharing.

      Oh I love Cher, she is so down to earth and yet classy and sexy at the same time. I love watching her outfit changes. She had so many.

      I love her music video (its one of my fav) its called "THE POWER" with interlude dancers and the two back up singers amazing powerful voices in this performance.

      Its about our Creator actually the power check it out.

      The dancers are awesome and her stage presence/performances are the bomb. She comes back always challenging herself.

      I watched her on the voice when a few performers performed and she sang her new song, forget now what it is called. Her performance on the voice was the best and it's a wonder it was saved for last. Her song and voice she sang on "bursleque" was powerful, even stronger of a performer than Christina A and I also love her voice.

      Cher is an icon and still has one of the best stage performances.

      The original video shows her with many types and race of woman and its great.

      I would love to go see her perform.

      Thanks for the hub

      Hi Alecia, Who are the Kardashians? Is that the family who are in the media for doing nothing? Oh them. Ha!

      Yes, Cher was the first the expose her belly button in the 70's.

      From Wikipedia...."During the 1960s, actress Barbara Eden was not allowed to show her navel on the US TV show I Dream of Jeannie by the Code of Practices for Television Broadcasters."

      Cher is cool and I like how she is very involved in everything as well. I didn't know she was Armenian- I've been so mired in the Kardashians' mess that I didn't know there were truly iconic Armenians. And I didn't know she was the first to spark the belly button craze- I associated that with Jeannie off of I Dream of Jeannie- cool beans though! Great job and cool hub!

      I mostly admired Cher when she and Sonny were an item. I admired the love that they displayed as I did not see any personal problems in their performances. They appeared so perfect in their attitudes toward each other and their routines. After their divorce I lost touch with both of them, only seeing them in bits and pieces. Yes, she was a dynamic princess. I have not heard much from her in later years, except for issues involving Chaz.

      Thanks for the memories!

      I love her music! She is the original Goddess of Pop music. She holds a single for every decade between the 60's and 2000s. One of my favorite songs by her is "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves". Thank you for more fun facts about her :)

      She has a certain beauty that is so rare, it is striking and yet handsome at the same time. She has quite a good track record as a music artist and quite talented as an actor.

      Hi Christy, Your mom is a lucky lady to have seen Sonny & Cher in person. Twitter is the closest I've ever been to her and she actually retweeted me once!:)

      My mom saw them sing "I got you babe" in person. Cher is a great success both for her voice and her personality. Well done!

      Sunshine....I thank you as I am a devoted fan! IMO, Cher has got it all. I have always loved a singer, actress and overall celebrity. I also believe that she is NO 1 in terms of a singer who ALSO acts. Many vocal artists have tried their luck at acting, but Cher is fabulous!

      I positively loved her in Silkwood, Mask and Moonstruck!!! Love love love thie hub, GF!!

      Linda, Cher remains the only person I can do a pretty good impression of (vocally only - as you can see from my photo, there is no 'passing likeness' to her :o)). I love Cher, she is classy, talented and funny. I like that she is self-deprecating about herself and knows how to have fun.

      An entertaining hub on Cher, the original goddess of pop! I have heard her name and saw her photos and in movies but have not known much about her till now thanks to you! I enjoyed reading the trivia facts about Cher. It would be wonderful when Cher herself come and comment on your befitting tribute to her! She will be very impressed and happy, no doubt!

      Thanks for SHARING. Interesting. Voted up.
