Hell Hath No Fury Like Cher Scorned

It's a Woman's World and Warner Brothers better Take It Like a Man as Cher spoke out against her label, getting Closer to the Truth. Billboard reported two days ago:

Cher says her record label "hasn't got a great deal of interest in my CD" and that the "decision makers" at the company "don't seem to care that much."

Cher released her most recent album, "Closer to the Truth," last September on Warner Bros. Records. It debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking the diva's highest charting solo album ever.

Cher took to Twitter on Thursday, February 6, to gripe about her label, but noted that "not all" of the folks at the company are unsupportive, adding that "there (are) hard working adorable" people there, too.

Cher has been with Warner Brothers since 1996. Perhaps sensing the discrimination against older artists, especially the female of the species, Cher lashed out on Twitter: 

Just read mean TILAM review. The video had nothing 2 do with me. I was told it would only be shown in gay bars. It’s true WB’s hasn’t got a Great Deal of Interest In My CD. Not ALL,THERE R HARD WORKING ADORABLE PPL.,But Decision Makers Don’t Seem 2CareThat Much. It’s Ok YHSTLOM

YHMSTLOM means You Haven't Seen The Last Of Me in Cher shorthand. And the video in question is not available on the Internet as of yet.

Closer to the Truth, released last September, sold 285,000 copies in the U.S. alone. It is the superstar's 25th studio album. It's possible that the dance-music-friendly tracks are something Warner brass are not all that investing in promoting. "Woman's World" did go to #1 while "Take It Like a Man" stalled at #2, with My Crazy Girlfriend's "Go F***k Yourself" catapulting to the top spot like a slap in the face.

So far, Warner Brothers hasn't issued a comment regarding the diva's accusations nor said a word on its behalf in this matter.
