About half a million people lined Sydney’s streets on Saturday to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras – the first time the annual parade has taken place since Australia legalised same-sex marriage.

Pop superstar Cher headlined the parade’s official party.

The age-defying 71-year-old made her way through the crowds of drag queens and revellers, with the help of her security entourage  She turned heads in a vibrant voluminous burnt orange wig styled in loose waves with a blunt fringe stopping just above her bold brows.

Never one to shy away from showing off her assets, she put on a busty display flaunting her cleavage with plunging neckline.

She graciously spoke to the adoring Australian media at the parade, answering many of the pressing questions.

The Californian-born beauty then made her way to the Qantas float for the parade, as her classic hit songs If I Could Turn Back Time and Strong Enough played from the loud speakers.

 

Cher performed later in the night to the sold out crowd singing popular hits including All or Nothing, Believe and Turn Back Time.  Her wardrobe included costumes from prior tours including her vintage 1980s Turn Back Time look and silver sequined Believe ensemble.

Fans can barely contain their excitement to witness the iconic pop star’s performance at Sydney’s Mardi Gras Party this weekend.

And on Wednesday, Cher was pictured arriving into Sydney ahead of her highly-anticipated and completely sold-out appearance.

The American singer, in her 70s, flaunted her age-defying looks as she sauntered through Sydney airport.

Cher will headline the now sold-out Mardi Gras Party event at Playbill Venues, Fox Studios on March 3, 2018.

Oozing body confidence, the actress wore a low-cut top and semi-sheer jacket that showcased her lithe figure.

She added to her glam rocker chic ensemble with a studded belt and a pair of blue denim jeans that hugged at her svelte waistline.

Accessorizing with on-trend choker-style necklaces, Cher drew attention to her exposed decolletage and slight cleavage.

The Grammy-award winner appeared to be escorted by a male through the terminal as she carried a black handbag by her side.

When leaving the airport, she happily waved to passersby as she hopped into her luxury vehicle.

While the 71-year-old covered her features with a wide-brimmed hat and dark-lens sunglasses, her youthful appearance was still on display.

Her makeup appeared flawless, with a dusting of blush on her cheeks and a glossy pink lipstick used on her pout.

Renowned for her devilishly sexy ensembles, the songstress is expected to have packed an impressive stage number for her Mardi Gras appearance on Saturday.

Fans erupted in excitement when it was confirmed Cher would be performing at the 2018 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

And less than three weeks out from her arrival in Australia, the pop icon has shared a special video message to announce that she can’t wait to celebrate the results of the country’s same sex marriage vote.

‘I know it’s been a big year, but we won and it’s time to celebrate!’ the 71-year-old proclaimed in the clip, which was aired on Sunrise Monday morning.

‘I can’t believe I’m heading to Sydney for the fortieth anniversary of the Gay And Lesbian Mard Gras,’ the superstar gushed.

Archival footage of Mardi Gras celebrations from over the years screened as Cher’s 1998 hit ‘Believe’ played softly in the background.

‘Sydney Mardi Gras is an icon and I can’t wait to be there to share the magic with you. See you in March in Sydney,’ she concluded.

Still unable to comprehend Hillary Clinton’s humiliating defeat to Donald Trump in the 2016 elections, Cher urged women to vote at the Women’s March on Sunday.  The angry diva said this is “one of the worst times in our history” and that women have the power to make things right. Addressing a crowd in Las Vegas with hoards of woman wearing pussy hats Cher made a sexist remark..

“If you want a job done right, get a woman”

With the USA boasting record unemployment, record DOW, high business confidence and a surge in manufacturing and lowest female unemployment in 18 years… Cher screamed “This is one of the worst times in our history, and that’s why I honestly believe that women are going to be the ones that fix it,” the singer told the crowd at the #PowertothePolls rally in Las Vegas, Nevada. “And that’s no bull**** because … if you want a job done right, get a woman.”  Cher also said that only strong powerful woman like her are capable of raising men who have respect towards woman.

Cher was sued during her Dressed To Kill Tour for allegedly complaining there were too many black dancers on stage and covering up alleged sexual assault.  The tour was then abruptly ended, reportedly due to illness.

Cher encouraged women to “own” their right to vote.

“Just stay strong and remember, if you don’t have a vote, you don’t have a voice,” Cher said.

Cher said she was bold and carefree as a young girl. “And then I got married, and I lost of a lot of my power through marriage. It was really my fault, but I was young.”

“It took me a long, long time to get back the power that you see that I have,” the singer exclaimed.

She also referenced her struggle with gender inequality in business. Cher said she has to “ask three times for what a man would have to ask for once.”

“If you ask for it, you’re a b****, and if you don’t ask for it, they just run over you,” she said.

Cher referred to herself as a powerful woman and further created a sexist divide saying “I know there’s guys out there that are not like that — and these are the guys that are raised by women like me,” she said.

Since Donald Trump took office, 863,000 new jobs were filled by women. Over half a million American women have entered the work force since he took over.

Cher has been added to the soundtrack at the Fountains of Bellagio. “Believe,” her 1998 hit, was unveiled late Wednesday night before an adoring throng of fans milling about the Strip.

Cher, who earlier in the evening resumed her headlining run at The Park Theater, created a stir when she turned up for the event just before 11 p.m. Her number was preceded by the medley from Tiësto’s “A Town Called Paradise” and joins such famed numbers as “Viva Las Vegas” as sung by Elvis, “Singing In the Rain,” from Kelly and Mancini’s “Pink Panther Theme.”

“Believe” joins a lineup of 25 songs played at the fountains. No numbers have been removed.


Her fashion seemed confused much like her anger filled tweets about the president of the United States.  Cher’s fascination with President Trump appears to have no end with the ageing diva channelling Trump’s fashion during her outing.

“It’s an honor to be part of the MGM Resorts entertainment family and to be included in such a spectacular landmark on the Las Vegas Strip,” Cher said in a statement after the presentation, which she viewed along with execs from MGM Resorts International and AEG Live, co-producers of her Park Theater show.

Cher’s show opened in February 2017, and its current run continues until Feb. 3. She returns again May 2-19.

International superstar Cher will perform at Sydney’s annual Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in March 2018, with the state government confirming one of the city’s worst kept secrets.

The 71-year-old hinted she was coming Down Under in a cryptic emoji-laden tweet in December: “OK….. YOU BOYS KNOW WHERE I’LL IN MARCH… #PutSomeShrimpOmTheBar[bie]”.

The all-night after party at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion sold out quickly after that tweet, with tickets going for as much as $250.

The NSW government on Friday announced Cher had been locked into performing at the Mardi Gras Party, when the city marks the annual parade’s 40th anniversary. It will be the first since same-sex marriage was legalised in Australia.

“When it comes to international recording artists, they don’t get much bigger than Cher and as one of the LGBTQI community’s most vocal advocates, she is the perfect person to help celebrate Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras,” Minister for the Arts Don Harwin said in a statement.

Mardi Gras creative director Greg Clarke was excited about the official announcement when speaking to ABC Radio Sydney this morning, promising an amazing show.

“These things do take time and a lot of negotiation, and so it’s been a pretty rollercoaster ride over the last couple of months, but we can definitely [say], it’s official and Cher is coming,” he said.

He said Cher would be a fitting star for the 40th anniversary of the Mardi Gras.

Cher is preparing to be a ‘dancing Queen’ in the sequel to Abba movie musical Mamma Mia!
The Oscar-winning actress is in London rehearsing choreography sequences for the film Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.
The Mail can reveal she will appear in two song and dance sequences in the follow up to the 2008 Mamma Mia! Movie, which starred Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan, Julie Walters, Amanda Seyfried, Dominic Cooper and Christine Baranski, all of whom are in the new film.
Lily James is also in the film as the younger version of Donna, Streep’s character.
The cast has been shooting on locations in Croatia but they will join Cher on the dance floor set up at Shepperton Studios later this week.
Cher’s role and names of the Abba numbers she’ll sing are being kept under wraps.

‘Cher’s our secret weapon. It’ll spoil the fun if we give anything away,’ an executive connected to the film explained last night.
Cher, 71, has not been in front of film cameras for several years, although she has been busy touring and collaborating on developing a Broadway musical based on her life and career.


Her Oscar was for best actress in Moonstruck in 1988.
The stage show will feature her signature chart-toppers such as I Got You Babe, Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves and The Shoop Shoop Song.
Cher revealed on her Twitter feed that she has been rehearsing dance numbers but didn’t disclose the name of the project.
However, she happily admitted to being in the UK where, she noted, ‘It’s always felt like home.’
Mamma Mia! started out on stage in London eighteen years ago where it remains a West End favourite.

Judy Craymer the producer who helped create the show also backed the 2008 film which took one billion dollars at the box office worldwide.
There is no official word on a story line for the sequel, though sources point to a potential prequel concept with focus on characters played by Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, and Pierce Brosnan set before the action of the original musical.

The sequel is set to feature Abba hits not featured in the original musical, “along with some reprised favorites,” Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus are aboard again to provide music and lyrics and serve as executive producers.

Cher is going after a bio pharmaceutical company, claiming officials there tricked her to sell her stock at a low price only to see the company’s value soar.

Cher says she bought 300,000 shares of Altor in 2013.. but 2 years later a company official spoke to her directly and offered to buy her shares back for $1.50 each. However, according to the docs, he withheld key info about upcoming successful clinical trials of the drugs they were working on for cancer and HIV research.

The singer claims essentially what the guy didn’t tell her was that they had made an incredible breakthrough in both cancer and HIV treatments.

Cher sold the stock and soon after … the price went through the ceiling.  Happens to everyone who invests in stocks, right?

She’s suing for unspecified damages. Poor old Cher unfortunately missed out on making millions off the health care system and she is mighty pissed off about it.  I thought Cher tweeted healthcare was supposed to be free for everyone?

Cher alleges fraudulent concealment and breach of fiduciary duty. In addition to Soon-Shiong, defendants include Altor Acquisition LLC, Altor cofounder Hing C. Wong and Fred Middleton, a vice chairman of Altor’s board. The suit asks for damages and attorney fees and costs.

“Cher decided to sell her shares in January 2016 [after] she made a substantial profit in less than three years,” Middleton said. “Her decision to sell was completely discretionary as she was under no duress to sell.”

“The lawsuit has no merit. We intend to vigorously defend against it,” Soon-Shiong’s spokesman, Michael Sitrick, said in a statement.

Future has earned himself a slew of major endorsement deals since his rise to superstardom, and now he’s joining a pop icon for his newest branding move. The Atlanta rapper stars alongside Cher for their new ad as a part of Gap’s ‘Meet Me in the Gap’ fall campaign, and we’re getting a first look at the commercial.

The teaser video for the ad (below) shows the two sitting on some steps in an all-white setting, with Cher singing a cover of Sly and the Family Stone’s “Everyday People” record from 1969. The platinum-selling MC backs up the veteran pop star with some of his signature vocals, as well as his notable ad-libs, which he laces over an edgy hip-hop beat in the background.

There is only one Cher. The pop divas of today owe a debt to the trailblazing star, who at 71 continues to innovate with her music and boundless personal style. As the ultimate icon of unabashed glamour, she’s served as inspiration for countless designers and provided the world with decades’ worth of headline-making red carpet looks. With that kind of influence, Cher could easily channel her fashion cred into merch or a capsule collection of her own, but for the always unorthodox star, there’s no point in taking on a project unless it’s going to be a good time. “If someone says, Do you want to do something?, the first thing I think of is, Oh, that would be fun! And that’s how I decide,” said Cher on the phone from Washington, D.C. “So when the Gap said, ‘Would you like to do something with a younger artist?’ I thought, ‘Yeah, that would be cool. I would like that.’ ”

The artist in question was Future, the chart-topping performer-producer whose hits have come to define hip-hop’s current sound. Joining forces for the new Gap denim campaign, the pair unite to sing a rendition of Sly and the Family Stone’s “Everyday People,” a track handpicked by Cher. “It’s just a great song,” she explains of her choice. “It’s got so many little things that go on in between these really profound lyrics, like the kid’s rhyme in the middle of it. Problems that we had when it was first done are the problems that we have now. They gave me a million songs [to choose from] and that was the song that I was drawn to.”

With lyrics that touch on issues of racism, sexism, and other interpersonal biases, the song is an especially timely choice. Its message of finding common ground with people who on the surface may seem different is underscored by Cher and Future’s collaboration. Though she admits that she wasn’t versed in Atlanta’s hip-hop scene before they worked together, Cher found Future instantly charming. “I got familiar once we got on the stage he rocked a little bit,” she says. “It was funny. He was very cute yet shy, and really he liked to have fun.”

Of course, doing the commercial was about more than simply making a great cover song with one of the moment’s hottest acts. Advertising’s power comes from its ability to normalize ideas that extend beyond products themselves, a fact Cher is aware of. “When I was young, there were just white people on commercials. That was it,” she says. “If you see [representation] all the time, then it just becomes the norm.”

When it comes to bigotry, Cher has zero patience. A firebrand on social media known for her emoji-laden tweets, she’s every bit as opinionated offline. “It’s just mind-boggling and so awful,” she says of the recent white supremacist marches in Charlottesville. “Prejudice makes no sense—it’s ridiculous, and if people stopped for just one second and thought about why the fuck they were doing it, they’d stop.” But although she’s disappointed with the current state of affairs, the resistance movement has left her inspired. “You look at the Women’s March when we went to Washington and the marches that we did down Fifth Avenue the night of the election,” she says. “You saw all these young kids, all these young people, [their generation] has lost those prejudices. They’re just shedding it like a terrible old snakeskin.”

Politics aside, there is one thing everyone knows about Cher: Her fearlessness extends to her wardrobe. From those legendary Bob Mackie performance costumes to her bohemian ’70s looks, her ever-evolving style has been consistently compelling. Still, it comes as something of a surprise to learn that music’s grande dame is a fan of online shopping. “It’s easy. You can send it back, and I don’t have to put on makeup or anything to go out,” she explains. And though she enjoys the occasional St. Tropez designer shopping spree, she’s just as happy picking up a few essentials at Free People. “They have some great things,” she says. “Look, also, you can have a lot of money and have gold faucets, you know what I mean? Money doesn’t make you chic.”

It’s that directness that makes her fashion advice so compelling. “I like what I like and I don’t care what the fashion is,” she says. “You have to wear what’s good for your body. It doesn’t even make any difference how in-fashion you are if you look like shit.” Having already tested out most of the current trends on their first go-round, she’s not about to edit her wardrobe to suit the masses. She’s long hung on to favorites like worn-in leather jackets and low-rise denim, which she wears until they fall apart. “I have one pair of jeans that I’ve worn so much that they are almost all patched because of holes,” she says with a laugh. “Not because of fashion, just because I wore the ass out of them! There are so many fabulous patches on them.”

ed/XjYP5nuxTDo” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen>

The concept of age-appropriate dressing also gets a thumbs-down. “Look, my mom’s 91 and she is a cool dresser,” says Cher. “She hasn’t really changed anything since she was in her fifties, so I don’t believe in that Oh, you get to a certain age and you have to cut your hair and you have to stop doing one thing or another thing. I just think that I’ll wear some of the stuff I have as long as I can get into it.” We wouldn’t have it any other way.
