Happy 70th Birthday, Cher, from Buddy B!
It's been said that after an atomic blast, there'd be nothing left but roaches and Cher. Such is her legend as a survivor.
Today, May 20th, 2016, Cher -- a fellow Taurus -- turns 70. What a wonderful milestone for a timeless icon.
Cher started in show business as half of Sonny and Cher. She was a shy teen at the time but somewhere that all changed.
It was when Cher was appearing on the tv variety series, The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour. Cher was sick of her husband's overly controlling behavior and decided to take her career and her life back into her own control.
Cher has won an Oscar,, a Grammy, an Emmy among other prestigious awards.
She has a transgender son, Chaz, and has long been a big supporter of the LGBT community throughout the world.
They say black don't crack. Neither does white -- if you can afford all the work Cher's had done to her face over the years.
Some people think Cher is a vocal lightweight but she is not I assure you, after seeing her many times live in concert. Her voice is strong, throaty but powerful.
Like Joan Crawford, Cher's incredible career spanning six decades has depended upon her reinventing and adapting of her image for the public.
Happy 70th birthday, Cheilyn Sarkisian!
