Four Reasons You Should Follow Cher On Twitter.

You need to follow Cher on Twitter. Here’s four reasons why.

Published

on

There are countless celebrities on Twitter. Some of them can’t stop reminding us how fantastic their lives are… or tweeting their celebrity friends every five minutes. (Feel good about your life yet?) Some simply promote whatever their project of the moment is, and still others are always pushing some product they’ve been paid to plug. (You know who you are!) But Cher’s twitter account is ridiculously fun, insightful, progressive and poignant. And while sometimes you can’t be sure if a celeb is having their publicist send out their tweets, in this case, you can tell this is completely, unsanitized Cher.  Here’s not four- but FIVE reasons you should follow her:

1)  CHER TWEETS BACK!    

Cher doesn’t just tweet random thoughts (don’t get me wrong, she does that too!) but she actually writes BACK to the people who write to her! Take this example, where she responds to the query of what she would do if she were president. The questions are often obscure, sometimes even racy, and Cher answers a LOT of them!

From what’s coming up in her career, to her sex life, to her take on the Kardashians, Cher often answers dozens of questions in a single day. Love her for that.

2) SHE REMINISCES.

Call it “Cher: the early years.” Funny anecdotes about a tiny little Cherilyn Sarkisian growing up in the world make for interesting tweets. From the sounds of it, she was always the outspoken firecracker that she is today!

Example: A story of her as a seven year old girl, being asked by her teacher what she and her classmates like about school. She recounts that after the other kids gave “BS” answers, Cher responded: “I don’t like your school, your class and (the other) kids!” Then she tossed her hair, left the classroom and went home, telling her mother and grandmother that school is ridiculous and that the teacher is a fool.

A legend before her time!

3) SHE’S REAL.

I think this next tweet example speaks for itself. Something about Cher pouring butter on her popcorn and sprinkling Kraft parmesan cheese on it is so un-celebrity-like, so unpampered, and so real. C’mon. Would Kim Kardashian ever tweet about this? Not without a check in the mail. Cher does it because it’s delicious. (At least that’s what I’d like to believe, and I’m going with it.)

4) SHE SHOUTS OUT FOR CHAZ

Unless you’ve been tremendously disconnected, you probably are familiar with Chaz Bono, who was born Cher’s daughter Chastity, but has since undergone the emotional and physical transition from a woman to a man, and is now going by Chaz. Since Chaz has been cast on “Dancing With The Stars,” the reaction from the public has been divided: from incredibly supportive to enormously hateful. Cher, who has been open about her own emotional journey in embracing her son along the way, has been vocal on Twitter about the matter, calling out the opponents and thanking the supporters. Cher’s unconditional love and support for Chaz is evident and heartfelt here.

BONUS TWEET!

Oh yes, and then she said this the other day:

Always topical, always real, Cher is one lady worth following on Twitter.

So follow Cher! And while you’re at it, stop by my page and follow me if you feel so inclined!!

Lee Daniels Speaks Out On The ‘Pain, Anger, Sadness And Frustration’ Surrounding The Jussie Smollett Scandal

Published

on

Although never mentioned by name, it’s clear that Empire creator, Lee Daniels, is still processing “the freaking roller coaster” Jussie Smollett has put him through.

Lee Daniels took to Instagram on Wednesday night to speak out about the Jussie Smollett scandal. The caption to the video states that Lee was “in [his] feelings last week,” alluding to the further developments surrounding the case. In the video, after brushing his teeth, Lee takes a moment to address the fact that Jussie is still appearing in new episodes of the hit show because they were filmed prior to “the incident.” In the wake of the allegations, the show has released a statement confirming the fact that Jussie has been written out of the last two episodes of the season. Lee’s pain and frustration stems from something deeper than character arcs as he told his followers “this is not what the show was made for. This show was made to bring America together to talk about the atrocities that are happening right now in the streets.”

On January 29th, Jussie made claims that he was the victim to a racially-motivated attack. After an extensive investigation, Chicago police believe that the alleged attack was fake. Since being charged, Jussie has pleaded not guilty on 16 felony counts for allegedly making false statements to police. Jussie also denies claims that he faked the ordeal due to his dissatisfaction with his salary. No word on whether Jussie will return to Empire next season as of yet.

LISTEN: Lizzo And Missy Elliott’s ‘Tempo’ Serves Bass By The Pound

Published

on

Lizzo must have taken a page right out of Missy Elliott’s book because she definitely put her thang down, flipped it and reversed it with this new single!

One of music’s brightest, new stars has joined forces with a certified music legend to create a hot new single that will have everyone body-rollin’ at the club. Yes, Lizzo has been blowing up after the release of her two consecutive hits “Juice” and “Cuz I Love You,” and it seems she has no intentions of slowing down anytime soon. The third single off of her upcoming album, Cuz I Love You, is entitled “Tempo” and features the one and only Missy Elliot.  Lizzo told Travis Mills on Apple Music Beats I that she first heard Missy’s verse via text message.

“She sent me a memoji of herself singing her verse, thats how I got the verse. I got a memoji of Missy like smiling and then she just started rapping, and I was like, ‘OMG what the hell’ so I had to hook it up to my speaker system. But it wasn’t even the actual track, it was like her going along in her studio.”

So Lizzo has Missy Elliott’s phone number?!? Jealous. The new single’s heavy bass will definitely make you want to move those hips. Crank up the volume…unless you’re in an office or library or something because the song is kinda NSFW…and click below to hear “Tempo”

Cuz I Love You drops on April 19th.

Wendy Williams Opens Up: “I Have Been Living In A Sober House.”

Published

on

The talk show host, who has been very supportive of both me personally and this website, bravely opened up to viewers today about her struggle with addiction. I wish her strength and applaud her courage.

She said she wanted to be honest with her viewers. “There are people in your family, it might be you, you have been struggling, and I want you to know more of the story… So, this is my autobiographical story, and I’m living it. I’m telling you this.”

“For some time now, and even today and beyond, I have been living in a sober house. … And you know, I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in my past and I never went to a place to get the treatment. I don’t know how, except God was sitting on my shoulder and I just stopped.”

She says that now, after the show she attends meetings around the tri state area and then is driven to a sober house. She then shared details of the facility and a group of guys she shares the common areas with: “They hog the TV and watch soccer, we talk and read and talk and read and then I get bored with them. Doors locked by 10 p.m. Lights out by 10 p.m.. So I go to my room, and I stare at the ceiling and I fall asleep to wake up and come back here to see you. So that is my truth.”

“I know, either you are calling me crazy or the bravest woman you know,” she continued. “I don’t care.”

Williams’ Hunter Foundation has already placed 56 people into facilities world wide since she announced a substance abuse hotline little more than a week ago.

It took a lot of bravery to stand before her audience and the world to share her truth. I personally admire her so much for taking this pivotal step, and opening up to her viewers.

We wish you the best, Wendy!
