“Can we do it in bed?” Cher asked, smiling slyly as she emerged from a knot of corridors in her sprawling hotel suite in Midtown Manhattan at about 9 p.m. on a sultry August night. Who would say no?

“I’m freezing in here!” she said. The rooms were meat-locker cold. So I trailed her back to the much warmer bedroom where she reclined on a king-size bed in all her Cher-ness: a trim black sweatshirt and jeans set off by the biggest, most sparkling belt ever worn outside a prizefighting ring. Waves of dark hair spilled around her shoulders; a printed bandanna was tied over the crown of her head. Her feet were bare.

She’d spent the last several hours in a recording studio, putting the final touches on “Dancing Queen,” her new album of Abba covers, which will be released Sept. 28. It was inspired by her return to the big screen in the movie musical “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” in July, and precedes the debut of “The Cher Show,” the Broadway musical about her life, with performances beginning Nov. 1.

Suddenly, a wave of uncertainty crashed over me: Was I supposed to get on the bed, too?

“Where’s your drink?” she asked, as I worried. Cher, 72, had ordered us frozen hot chocolates from Serendipity 3 — “the most magical place in New York,” she said. (“I wish I’d bought it when it was for sale.”) I picked up my cup from the bedside table. “Good, sit there,” she said, pointing to the chair beside the bed.

For the next 90 minutes she talked about the sweep of her life and multi-multi-hyphenate career. From variety show TV star to pop diva. From flamboyant concert headliner to Oscar-winning actress. And now, activist and legend: Her Twitter feed, with almost 3.5 million followers, is often politically bracing. She will be awarded a Kennedy Center Honor in Washington on Dec. 2, the night before “The Cher Show,” which she is co-producing, officially opens on Broadway. And in a reflective mood, Cher offered a cleareyed assessment of how her ultra-splashy public persona has coexisted with her naturally quiet self for more than 50 years. These are edited excerpts from the conversation.

When you left home, at 16, was it to become a singer or actress, or did you just not want to be at home anymore?

I didn’t want to be bossed anymore. Little did I know I was going to get bossed a lot more. But that’s the way Sonny [Bono, her ex-husband] was. He was a Sicilian man of his generation.

It’s weird to hear you say that. You were such a boss on “The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour.”

Well, I really was confident before I met Sonny. I was this teenage ball of fire with unbelievable energy but no focus. And Sonny was all focus. He was like, “O.K., you’re going to go this way; you’re going to go that way.” And I was thrilled because I had no way. I was just bouncing off walls.

But singing wasn’t the goal?

No, that’s not what I started out to do. But I’d always sung. My mother, my uncle, my grandfather — there was always singing and guitars. My favorite thing in the world is to rehearse. I can pick any song and just stand there and sing it. No one in the audience to judge me. And I love the way singing feels in my body — because it’s so big, and I’m not. But the music comes out in the biggest way.

So, if you could do anything in the world, it would still be singing?

I was talking to Barbra Streisand one day, and she asked, “Why do you still sing?” And I said, “Because there’s going to come a day when I can’t.” No one will want to come and see me, and I won’t be able to sing the way I’m singing now. I have unbelievable pipes! My doctor says I’m a freak. But if I couldn’t sing, I’d be miserable.

And all the other things you do — the acting, the concert spectaculars, the tweeting — those are lesser …

I don’t account for things that way. I just do them. I’ve never planned a single thing in my entire life. It’s like this Abba album. I did the film. I didn’t ask to do it. My friend Ronnie Meyer called and said, “You’re doing ‘Mamma Mia,’” and hung up.

But you didn’t say no.

Ronnie used to be my agent. He ran Universal, and he’s my dear friend. So when he hung up, I thought, “Damn!” Then I thought, “Well, it’s going to take five minutes, and no one will even know I’m there.”

I hate to tell you, but you stole that movie.

I haven’t seen it. But can I tell you, I don’t remember doing anything memorable, except singing “Fernando.” Afterward, when Jen [her assistant] and I were packing to go home, I said, “You know what might be fun?” This is how I get myself into all kinds of trouble. “It might be fun to do an Abba album.” The songs are easy to sing, but they’re complicated, too. Some of them are hard as hell, which is why I was in the studio again tonight.

Had you ever considered an album of covers before?

Never. But everyone loved the idea when I suggested it — like I’d been planning it for a million years. “You’re a genius!” But I just thought it might be fun.

How are your versions of the songs different from the originals?

I wasn’t a big fan of Abba in the ’70s. Benny [Andersson] took the girls and used them like instruments. Sonny used to do that to me. He would carve out a place for them in the songs, and they would fit in that little place. But he didn’t give them space to sing the way they might have wanted to.

And your versions?

Mine are a lot freer. And it was a great time to do it. I’m a news junkie, and these are rough times. But when I was recording, I got swept up in the fun of it. The songs are silly and crazy, and for the album, I chose the ones that are saddest and the most fun.

When did you start feeling confident as a singer?

I never feel confident. Off and on, I’ve felt good about my singing. But I’ve never been a huge Cher fan. I like doing it more than hearing it. So except for a couple of albums …

What’s your favorite?

It’s probably between “Believe” and a highly underrated album called “Closer to the Truth.” There’s not a bad cut on either one of them. I’ve made millions of albums, and most of them are absolutely no good. But some of them aren’t bad.

Let’s talk about acting. When your TV variety show went away and your pop career stalled for a minute, you moved effortlessly, it seemed, to acting. You said you didn’t set out to sing. Did you set out to act?

I set out to be famous! I set out to be Cinderella. I saw two movies when I was a kid: “Dumbo” and “Cinderella.” And on the way home, I started singing the songs in the car. My mother punched my dad and said: “Listen! She’s singing songs from the movie.” I’d never heard them before. I didn’t understand the reality. I just knew I wanted to be on that screen.

Was it hard to get into rooms with directors like Robert Altman and Mike Nichols?

I knew all these famous people, but none of them would give me the time of day. I went to Mike Nichols one day for a part in a movie called “The Fortune,” and he said: “No. You’re wrong.” I just looked at him and said: “You know what? I’m very talented, and one day you’re going to be sorry.” I have no idea why I said that.

And when I was doing “5 & Dime” [“Come Back to the 5 & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean”] on Broadway, Mike came to see me backstage, and he said: “You’re very talented. And I’m sorry.” Then he asked if I wanted to do a film with him and Meryl Streep. I said sure. I was actually more interested in something else that day, but I thought: This could be fun.

Did you like the script?

When we started filming “Silkwood,” I had no part whatsoever. It was tiny. And then Mike would say, “Cher, I want you in this scene.” Or: “Cher, I want you to say that.” I had no idea I was even working — or acting. “Sit on the couch and eat popcorn, and when the kids come in, say this.” That’s what it was like. I just knew that everyone was my friend, and Mike was like my dad. I even called him “Dad.” It was like playing.

For many people, acting is extremely hard work.

It didn’t feel that way to me. Also, I didn’t have to look at an audience. My whole life, I had to look out at the audience and go: “How am I doing? Do you like this?” But when you act, you only have to look at the other actors. You just have to trust them and find a way to become this other thing.

Were the people in your life surprised you were good at it?

When “Silkwood” came out, Mike called and told me that the trailer was playing at this theater in Westwood [in Los Angeles]. He said: “You’ve got to see it. It’s great.” So, I went. They showed scenes from the movie, but I didn’t really look like Cher. And the announcer said, “Starring Meryl Streep,” lots of applause. “And Kurt Russell,” more applause. “And Cher,” and everyone in the theater started laughing. I was really hurt, but I kept thinking, No, this is their honest reaction. So I called Mike and said, “Dad, they all laughed.” And he said, “They might be laughing before the movie, but they won’t be laughing after the movie.”

In fairness, the big feat of your acting career is that you’re able to submerge your gigantic public persona into these human-size roles.

Listen, people have all kinds of ideas about me. There’s the sparkly me and the quiet me. But the quiet me comes more naturally. If I could do “Silkwood” for the rest of my life, I’d be very happy.

You made a spate of good films: “Mask,” “The Witches of Eastwick,” “Moonstruck” — your Oscar. But then they stopped. Did you start saying no, or did the offers dry up?

No, I got really sick [with the Epstein-Barr virus]. For two years, I couldn’t work. It was terrible. I ended the second year with pneumonia. All these movie offers were coming in, but I had to turn them all down. I was really, really upset about it. And when I came back, I had to work my way back up from the beginning — doing concerts and stuff like that.

Was there ever a partner in your life — Sonny, Gregg Allman, David Geffen — or a good friend who was a great adviser to you? Or have you always relied on your own instincts?

Before I met Sonny, I was very much a person who relied on her own instincts. But I was very young and just handed that over to Sonny. Then when I left him, I was real happy. But I started to make huge mistakes in front of everyone because I was still 16 inside. I hadn’t grown.

What kind of mistakes?

Like marrying Gregory [Allman] and getting divorced so fast. But I had to make my mistakes in front of everyone.

Because you were so famous?

Yeah. And then I went to Las Vegas, and people thought I was an idiot because I had this big show with all these costumes. I was so bored. The last thing I wanted to do was just stand there and sing. And then I wanted to be an actress. I remember Francis [Ford Coppola] came backstage after a show. He looked at me and said, “Why aren’t you doing movies?” I just broke down sobbing. And that’s how I got myself, in a roundabout way, hooked up with Robert Altman and “5 & Dime” in New York.

Let’s talk about “The Cher Show,” the Broadway musical of your life that features a host of your hits. The premise is three versions of you — teenage Cher, pop-star Cher and mature Cher — all interacting with one another. Was that your idea?

No, that was the idea Rick Elice [the show’s book writer] always had. It was what kept me coming back to him. It took years and years to develop this show. But I think it’s a great idea because I’ve lived for so long that I really have been distinct personalities.

Right now, which version jumps out at you?

The young girl, [called] Babe [played by Micaela Diamond], is so brilliant. She just graduated from high school, and it was either go to college or come do this show. She took a big gamble. And she’s so much like me when I was young that she doesn’t even have to do anything. But they’re all working to find me at different points in my life. That’s the great hook.

Your life has been so public. Did you want to use the musical to correct the story of your life or add to it?

We go back and forth on this a lot. You have to know something more about me after the musical. That’s important to me. Listen, I didn’t have a play about myself before, and I was living very happily. So, I want it to be true and fun and like life is: Sometimes you’re great, and sometimes you’re pathetic. Sometimes you’re tired, and sometimes you break down. It should be like that. And nothing should be glossed over.

Can you feel tender toward young Cher now? The mistakes she made?

I try not to think about her much. Everybody has good things happen and bad things happen, and long stretches where nothing happens at all.

How about in reverse? Would young Cher look at you on that bed and say: Well done!

Of course! But look at where she is. She’s young; she knows nothing. She only wants to be this. [Cher points at herself.]

But you’ve always been more than “this” — feather headdresses notwithstanding.

Well, every time I go out and talk to an audience, I try to put that across. “Here’s the glitz, and here’s who I really am.”

You’ll be receiving a Kennedy Center Honor this year. Has it annoyed you not to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?

It used to annoy me. But I know it’s just a boys’ club, and they don’t think I’m cool enough. But that’s O.K. My life is humming along without it. It’s humming along even without the Kennedy Center Honor. I was just terrified that Trump would be there.

Do you worry about alienating Trump supporters with your freewheeling, often political Twitter feed?

Trump voters don’t like me anyway. And I don’t blame them. I say terrible, true things about him. I hate him because he’s using his job to make money. But mostly, I hate him because he’s tearing this country down, and it’s going to take generations to put it back together, if we even can.

I guess if you held back, you wouldn’t be Cher.

That’s true. I’ve gotten death threats from his supporters — with pictures of me in the gas chambers. People writing, “The wrong Bono went skiing that day.” [Sonny Bono died in a skiing accident.] But I can’t hold back. It’s about character. My mom would beat me to death if I lied. I’m not starting now.

Two weeks after Cher unleashed her take on “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!,” the pop diva dropped her SOS ABBA cover today (Aug. 23 2018).

Adding her “Believe” era effects on the legendary Swedish group’s 1975 smash, “SOS” gets a glossy Cher revision. With a club-ready thump and a glitter-dusted synth line not unlike the one on her “Gimme!” cover, Cher takes the mid-tempo classic for a brisk dance break.

“SOS” is the penultimate track on her covers album, appropriately dubbed Dancing Queen. Based on the tracklist she unveiled weeks ago, the 10-track tribute includes her takes on “Chiquititta,” “Dancing Queen,” and “One of Us,” among other ABBA gems. The final track remains a mystery at this point.

Cher’s suite of ABBA covers is set for a Sept. 28 release via Warner Bros.

Listen to Cher’s “SOS” below.

The wait is finally be over! Cher has released the album cover and new single “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)” from her new ABBA tribute album titled Dancing Queen.  Her insanely photo-shopped album cover is a tribute to the classic Agnetha & Anni-Frid portrait.

Cher, who appears in the Mamma Mia!sequel, detailed her love for the Swedish pop group in a press release. “I’ve always liked Abba and saw the original Mamma Mia musical on Broadway three times,” the singer said.

“After filming Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, I was reminded again of what great and timeless songs they wrote and started thinking, ‘Why not do an album of their music?'” she continued. “The songs were harder to sing than I imagined but I’m so happy with how the music came out. I’m really excited for people to hear it. It’s a perfect time.”

Fans who pre-order the album will instantly receive Cher’s version of “Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight).”  Gimme Gimme takes us all back to the 90s Believe era of heavy vocoder and pop backing.

Cher’s new song for the new HBO documentary “Cries from Syria” has been released. The song plays on the closing credits of the documentary with Cher belting out the chorus “Prayers for this World” along with a child’s voice.

The song was written by Diane Warren especially for the film. “Syria’s ‘lost generation’ needs to be heard,” says filmmaker Evegeny Afineevsky, “and this film provides them with a collective voice.”

In other news Cher has stopped working on her new album indefinitely to concentrate efforts on a political motivated documentary on the Flint Water Crisis for HBO & her campaign against the president of the United States Donald Trump. Spending most of 2016 unsuccessfully rallying for Hillary Clinton the ageing Diva has now returned to Las Vegas to perform for casino patrons. She is very proud of her new show having designed new costumes along with a new set list to excite patrons.

What do you think of the new song??

Cher New Album

Cher is doing what she does best, turning her attention back to her legendary music career. Cher has committed to recording a new album and is hitting the studio when she finishes her political campaigning for LGBT and Hillary Clinton.

“When I get back From 1st Leg Hill Campaign, I’ll start new CD,” she tweeted. “So EXCITED 4Get I [heart emoji] SINGING.”  Cher has previously teased fans that she wants to make a covers album of music by men.  Think Elvis, Bruce Springsteen and The Eagles tracks.

What do you think, what type of album would you like to see Cher record?

Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.

Cher has also recorded 2 new songs for a mystery project which could relate to an upcoming voice over for a cartoon, Broadway Show or duets album.  The music legend tweeted “Just walked out of studio. Had blast ,put two songs down.Was Dead from fittings Wish I Could go in jeans & high heels,BUT SHADE IS BURR (cold) (sic)”

A new album would be Cher’s 26th, and it would be her first release since 2013’s Closer to the Truth. It would also mean that her discography will have stretched for over 50 years — Cher’s first studio album, All I Really Want to Do, came out in 1965.

It is unknown when the album will be released, however based on previous recordings expect no earlier than mid 2017 / early 2018.

Cher New York
Cher proved her style chameleon status while turning heads on Tuesday in a much different look than the one she rocked the night before at the Met Gala.

The 68-year-old singer looked groovy in a colourful Bohemian get-up on an outing in New York City, visiting Serendipity and other favorite places in the Big Apple.

On Tuesday, Cher was a boho babe in a baby blue sheer outer garment and matching top with high-waisted loose-fit orange trousers, all emblazoned with an exotic eye-catching pattern. She tied a bright turquoise bandana around her head and concealed her eyes behind purple mirrored aviator sunglasses. Cher strut her stuff in stacked silver wedge sandals while carrying a bright turquoise snakeskin purse.

Cher also revealed on twitter that she will be recording a new song beginning June (it is unknown whether this will be for an entire new album or a 50th Anniversary compilation package). There is also a huge secret project in the works that might be ready for her 69th Birthday celebrations.

Cher Wu Tang Album

Cher has contributed vocals to two songs on Wu-Tang Clan’s upcoming “secret album” The Wu – Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.

A representative for Cher declined to make the singer available for comment, but confirmed the collaboration to Rolling Stone. “She recorded her parts separately, so I don’t believe there was direct interaction,” said the rep.

In a video posted by Forbes on Tuesday, writer Zack O’Malley Greenberg traveled to Marrakesh, Morocco to “become the first civilian” to hear the album, of which the group is only pressing one copy and selling to the highest bidder. Tarik “Cilvaringz” Azzougarh, the album’s producer, played one song on-camera featuring Ghostface Killah rhyming over pounding drums, dusty organ and a repeated female wail. At the end of the track, Cher improbably sings, “Wu-Tang, baby. They rock the world.”

Cher’s appearance had been hiding in plain sight since at least March, when the album’s website noted that it “includes special guest appearances by Bonnie Jo Mason.” In 1964, Cher released “Ringo, I Love You,” her first solo single without Sonny Bono and a tribute to Ringo Starr, under the pseudonym of the same name.

In the video, Azzougarh says production of the album, which was six years in the making, was done in Marrakesh “in a very unconventional way.” After Azzougarh produced the tracks and sent them to RZA for review, the pair came up with song titles before it was decided which rappers would appear on which tracks. When it was time for each Wu member to record his part, the rappers rhymed over similar-sounding beats, but not the original, to avoid any leaks. According to Azzougarh, no one in the group, including RZA, was given final copies of the album.

The video also shows the album’s container, which was handcrafted over three months by 10 artists led by British-Moroccan artist Yahya. Yahya shows off the case, an ornate container carved in nickel silver with the Wu-Tang W logo embossed in the middle of the case. “We treat it as an art piece, which it is,” says Yahya. The album has allegedly been moved to a different secret location since the video was shot.

“We’re about to sell an album like nobody else sold it before,” RZA told Forbes in March. “We’re about to put out a piece of art like nobody else has done in the history of [modern] music. We’re making a single-sale collector’s item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king.”

Before the album is sold to one wealthy fan — RZA claims he’s been offered $5 million for the 31-track record — it will be toured across the world’s museums, galleries and festivals, using headphones to protect the songs from piracy.

The release of the secret album has been overshadowed of late by group infighting over Wu’s other upcoming album A Better Tomorrow. Last month, Raekwon told Rolling Stone that he was “on strike” from the group, accusing RZA of “mediocre shit” when it came to new music and alleging that contracts still needed to be negotiated for him to appear. After saying that Wu-Tang Clan “needs him” on the next album, RZA gave the rapper a 30-day ultimatum to agree to terms. While it’s unclear if Raekwon will appear on A Better Tomorrow, the rapper told Rolling Stone the odds were two out of 10.
