CHER ON HER CAREER, SUPPORT FOR THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY AND RECORDING A NEW ALBUM

In an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, international superstar Cher spoke about her iconic status among the LGBTQ community and reaffirmed her support for transgender rights:

“We were always just like this because gay people don’t feel like they fit in and I never felt like I fit in.”

While she says she initially struggled with her own son’s transition, Cher has tried to help others understand transgender rights issues:

“I don’t know what the peoples’ problems are. They’re fearful and they just don’t understand how to react to it. Some of it’s religious. I am not sure. I’m just not sure why it’s such a big thing. And I try to talk to people on Twitter or people come up to me and I just say just relax and you guys will get through it. You’ll get through it together.”

In the wide-ranging interview, Cher discussed her extensive film and music career and her longevity in the entertainment industry, “I kept thinking of myself as a bumper car. And I thought if I hit the wall I’ll come back and I’ll go another direction.”

She also spoke in detail about her animal rights activism and her support for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, saying of Harris’ historic election, “Very proud, very proud. Should’ve been a long time ago. Women are great. Women are tough. Don’t screw with them.”

Cher also revealed that she’s working on a new album, which will be something that “no one’s ever done” before. But she cautioned, “It could be my last album because you never know when [her voice] — it’s just going to go.”
