Throwback -- Cher: "There's something about [Madonna] I don't like"

This was uploaded Oct. 2017, I've never seen it before. I like Cher's honesty here.

Cher didn't mince words about how she felt about Madonna
replies 63Dec 5, 2017 6:31 PM +00:00

She's not incorrect.

replies 1Dec 5, 2017 6:32 PM +00:00

And then she backtracked.

replies 2Dec 5, 2017 6:37 PM +00:00

Maybe Madonna's "people" got to her?

replies 3Dec 5, 2017 6:40 PM +00:00

They've worked things out.

I hear ya Cher.

Honesty is the best policy.

I wonder what Cher thought of the British accent she picked up after living there for a week.

replies 6Dec 5, 2017 6:58 PM +00:00

Cher and Madge have been pals for years. Cher’s just feeding the trolls.

It was as fake as her boobs and face.

replies 8Dec 5, 2017 7:15 PM +00:00

Madonna was so obnoxious when she was younger. I remember Cher attended her wedding to Sean Penn and soon afterword said, Madonna would have to be kinder for me to like her.

replies 9Dec 5, 2017 7:21 PM +00:00

Yeah...that's she's more successful than you. It started when Cher kept asking Madonna to write her some songs and Madonnna blew her off. Why would she write a song for Cher when she could keep it for herself. Delusional!

replies 10Dec 5, 2017 9:00 PM +00:00

Cher is cool and down to earth. Madonna is not. Simple as that. Cher has Dianne Warren as songwriter. Why would she want Madonna? Never liked most of Madonna's music.

replies 11Dec 5, 2017 11:07 PM +00:00

Team Cher all the way. She chose her words carefully in OP's segment--until, blam! C-WORD! Well played.

I don't find it hypocritical that over a couple of decades, as Cher tells Cohen, that they're "good now." She didn't say "friends." I'm sure there's some measure of mutual respect but no one expects them to hang out.

Also, Madge has outsold Cher by kajillions. But can Madge touch the sheer breadth of Cher's career?

Oscar-winning (and nommed) actress

Top-selling solo and duo performer over FOUR decades

Long-running TV star in the 70s

Style icon, then, now, and forever

Oh yeah... a lot of her colleagues in the biz actually like Cher.

“I never hated her, I just thought she was a bitch. Actually I quite respect her." -- Cher on Madonna

They both look like clowns with their bad plastic surgery.

replies 14Dec 6, 2017 5:18 AM +00:00

I love Cher.

--also, I loved Whitney Houston

Madonna’s the one still caught up in a cult.

replies 16Dec 6, 2017 5:33 AM +00:00

They look about the same age now. Madonna has aged so badly.

replies 17Dec 6, 2017 5:43 AM +00:00

Do you believe in life after love, after love, after love... This single was the number one single of '98. The sound of Cher's powerful voice helped put it there. Madonna's thin voice couldn't have done it as well.

replies 18Dec 6, 2017 11:45 AM +00:00

Cher was and is the better actress of the two.

That and a hell of a lot of autotune.

Madonna's thin voice couldn't have done it as well.

That's because she was too busy butchering "American Pie" even more than The Brady Bunch already did.

replies 20Dec 6, 2017 11:50 AM +00:00

Cher has a stronger, more expressive singing voice than Madonna and has sung more genres than Madonna.

replies 21Dec 6, 2017 12:01 PM +00:00

I don't think Madonna and Cher have ever been "pals.", although they have probably socialized at times. But they do have some things in common. Both of them are not particularly good singers (Gregg Allman even told Cher that he didn't think she was much of a singer) , both liked displaying their tits and ass, both are very self absorbed, both still want to believe that they're 25 years old, and both of them have had tons of plastic surgery to make it seem like they're still hot young babes.

replies 22Dec 6, 2017 12:17 PM +00:00

The difference being Cher is cool and Madonna - well

replies 23Dec 6, 2017 3:44 PM +00:00

Cher's a hypocrite. Sonny, who she was married to when she recorded most of her best music, was more accepting of Chastity's lesbianism in private than she was. And all this Chaz crap didn't start until after Sonny died.

replies 24Dec 6, 2017 3:49 PM +00:00

Yeah, r17, a lifetime of insomnia, over-exercising and poor eating habits have left their mark on Madonna.

replies 25Dec 6, 2017 3:56 PM +00:00

Some parts of the song are not auto tuned. "Well, I know that I'll get through this..." is Cher's natural voice.

Whatever Cher's private family dynamics are or were, it is none of our business. Chastity is living the good life because of who?

replies 26Dec 6, 2017 4:21 PM +00:00

Yes, it was Cher who had a problem accepting that her daughter was gay, not Sonny. God, I wonder what her reaction was when Chastity told her she was going to have surgery to become a man! She must have fainted.

replies 27Dec 6, 2017 4:54 PM +00:00

R27 I would imagine that Cher had lived with it so long at that point that it wasn't too shocking when Chas told her about the surgery.

Sorry, I really try to be an open minded, good person, but I am disturbed by Chas' beard. But, I realize that is my problem, no one else's.

And give Cher a break on the lesbian thing. Cher's mom was old fashioned- the point is that Cher eventually embraced her.

Word is that Babs needed time to adjust to Jason Gould being gay.

replies 28Dec 6, 2017 5:25 PM +00:00

r11, I think it would be a matter of being able to get more top 10s. At least at the time, Madonna cornered the market on getting top 10s, albeit thanks to her collaborators.

There's a catalogue of Madonna songs that defined the two decades she reigned. Cher has but a few. Her pop culture status is as an icon; her songs were never the thing that made her famous.

replies 29Dec 6, 2017 5:41 PM +00:00

I guess that's why Cher never bonded with Barbra- even though they were neighbors in Malibu and their kids played together.

replies 30Dec 6, 2017 5:46 PM +00:00

"There's a catalogue of Madonna songs that defined the two decades she reigned."

"Reigned?" What did "reign" as? The World's Biggest Slut? And what songs of hers defined ANYTHING, much less "two decades?" You must be crazy.

replies 31Dec 6, 2017 5:57 PM +00:00

Cher has a much better voice than Madonna.

replies 32Dec 6, 2017 5:58 PM +00:00

R32, I agree, but that’s a very low bar.

replies 33Dec 6, 2017 5:59 PM +00:00

R11, um maybe bc at the time Madonna was unstoppable and had hit after hit. Cher may have had Diane Warren but it didn't give her many hits. I'm not a huge fan of Madonna now but in the 80's and early 90's she was the biggest musical artist, period. You may not like her as a person and she's a horrible actress but no one can deny the fact that she had the music industry in the palm of her hands. So yes, Cher could've greatly benefitted from that.

replies 34Dec 6, 2017 6:10 PM +00:00

R31, you might want to look at record sales and concert ticket sales. She was the MTV generation for the 80's and into the very early 90's. Her videos were masterpieces. Not the greatest voice but she knew how to market herself. She ruled the 80's something that Cher cannot ever say she did.

replies 35Dec 6, 2017 6:13 PM +00:00

For some reason I'm guessing that Madonna really doesn't spend a whole lot of time thinking about whether or not Cher likes her.

replies 36Dec 6, 2017 6:16 PM +00:00

Cher also later admitted her faults when Chastity came out. She came round and has been incredibly supportive of Chas in choice of partner, gender identification, etc. She is no enemy of LGBT.

I honestly don't know what kind of mom Madge is. I wish the best for her kids. Cher has always been very devoted to her kids, even when their fathers (ie, Greg Allman) were not.

replies 37Dec 6, 2017 6:23 PM +00:00

Of course Cher has always been more upset about Chaz’s weight than being lesbian or trans.

replies 38Dec 6, 2017 6:24 PM +00:00

"She was the MTV generation for the 80's and into the very early 90's."

That's not exactly something to be proud of. She was at her peak during the 80s when music (and practically everything else) was shallow, superficial and trivial. She certainly fit in that era. She rather epitomized it.

replies 39Dec 6, 2017 6:48 PM +00:00

R39, wrong. The 80s were one of the most, if not flat-out just WAS the most, experimental and interesting time in music, aided by the advent of a brand-new visual medium. Catchy hooks and tunes all over the place, endless classics. Didn't matter the genre--if it was a good song, people liked it and it became a huge hit. That NEVER happens anymore. Last popular song I can think of that united all people across tastes and preferences is "Hey Ya," and that was, what, 14 years ago?

replies 40Dec 6, 2017 6:53 PM +00:00

R40, what about Uptown Funk?

replies 41Dec 6, 2017 6:55 PM +00:00

Cher had a voice and acting talent.

replies 42Dec 6, 2017 7:25 PM +00:00

That's true, R42, and Madonna had pubic hair almost to her knees.

replies 43Dec 6, 2017 7:34 PM +00:00

R41, as a true 80's fan, all I could hear was a complete refabrication of Morris Day in that track. But it was good fun, I agree; it stood out and made people happy.

...don't get me started on "Happy," come to think of it. No other song in recent memory made me want to set things on fire like that one did.

replies 44Dec 6, 2017 7:40 PM +00:00

R42, Cher's voice is not great. Look Madonnas isn't great but it's certainly better than Cher's howling.

replies 45Dec 6, 2017 10:02 PM +00:00

All these posts and not one comment that former E hottie Steve Kmetko is the interviewer?

Cher has an Oscar, something that Madonna will never have but still knows her limitations. She can be self-depricating AF. Madonna, not so much.

Plus, Cher is never vulgar. She can dance around in a thong and still seem like a lady. Madonna seems like cheap goods wrapped in fancy paper.

No, not in a million years, Cher in that thong was vulgar and MUCH too old and not a lady

So who cares if Cher has an Oscar? Glenn Close, Tom Cruise and a host of others never won one either.
