What can we say about her? The fashion icon, the athlete, the singer, the actress, but after all, the resilient woman who turns today 75.
Cher possesses within her and her long career an important and clear message. It doesn’t matter how much time it will take, as long as you know what you want and where you want to be. We are capable of everything. She had bankruptcy after her divorce from Sonny Bonno and in the early ’80s. She was married to the singer Gregg Allman for only one year, and yes, she had many relationships with younger men, and most of them well know in the public scene. Such as Val Kilmer and Tom Cruise.
However, and even defining herself as a shy person, the reality is she became the first woman on television wearing fancy clothing showing the belly bottom. But also the first woman in the music industry who had a movie clip censored by MTV. Who doesn’t remember the famous clip for the song “If I Could Turn Back Time”?
Living in this “phenomenal” era where everyone is editing their photos to attract superficial attention and validation, Cher is the personification of what self-confidence and beauty mean.
The example of that you might lose everything in your life, but there will always be one opportunity waiting, which will catapult you to your path, to your correct direction.
Everyone said that her career wouldn’t last. Everyone laughed when they saw her name on a movie screen. But she is here and still recording good music at her age.
Like she said: “No matter what people say about you, and people have said some pretty terrible things about me, you just don’t give up.”
Life has highs and lows, but never gives something that you can’t handle. So if someone can’t handle your low and weakest moments, that person can’t be part of your victories. Nor should you stay longer in situations that will only deplete or hurt you.
At the end of the day, girl, thanks a lot for being my fashion inspiration. But also someone who stands out from the crownd without fear of speaking or pointed out what is wrong. That’s class. That’s a woman in her pure and brutal nature.
And yes, Cher! “A man is not a necessity, a man is a luxury.” 😉
