Cher blasts WB Promotion of CTTT

 

Cher blasts Warner Bros Closer To The Truth

Fans waited and waited for a new album, time passed by, the years passed ever so slowly and the tweets were endless and finally Closer To The Truth was released… Debuting at number 4, Closer to the Truth – Cher’s 25th studio album – was her highest-charting UK release in more than two decades. Back in the US, it was her highest-charting solo album ever, selling 63,000 copies in its first week and peaking at No 3.  So why did momentum just seem to STOP, no new proper music videos, no promotions while CTTT continued to fall down the charts?  Well Cher has now lashed out at Warner Bros treatment of her new album Closer To The Truth.  Warner Bros have simply failed to back Closer To The Truth without any serious promotional campaign or strategy.   Closer To The Truth clearly did not flop, but Warner Bros promotions or lack of failed miserably.  The only videos we saw after the lackluster Woman’s World music video was the simple lyric video for I Hope You Find It and the horrendously bad lyric videos for “Take It Like a Man”, all pushed by Warner Bros to zero effect.

“It’s true [Warner Brothers] hasn’t got a Great Deal of Interest In My CD,” Cher wrote on twitter. “Not ALL [the staff], THERE R HARD WORKING ADORABLE PPL. But Decision Makers Don’t Seem 2Care That Much.”

In what some critics claim a masterpiece and some of Cher’s best work to date, some countries around the world would not even realize Cher has a new album, with no advertisements, press, posters, zero promotions from Warner Bros records.  The album simply relied on Cher’s star power appearances on US TV and in Europe without any follow up promos from Warner Bros.  This record company is clearly disrespecting a LIVING LEGEND and offending her fan base by refusing to promote her.

Closer to the Truth has notched two hit singles on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart: “Woman’s World” hit No. 1 last year, and “Take It Like a Man” recently peaked at No. 2 for two weeks.

Cher has little time to worry, preparing for her upcoming Dressed to Kill concert tour, which kicks off on Mar. 22 in Phoenix. Cher Tickets are selling like hotcakes and the tour will be her first since her successful Farewell Tour, which circled the globe from 2002 through 2005.  Cher has also declared “It’s Ok YHSTLOM” (You Haven’t Seen The Last of Me) in a tweet, hopefully next time it will be with a new label.

    This is a great album and Cher can do better then WB what a shame we waited so long and had hopes for some great interesting videos. Being a Cher fan we have always had to put up with people not wanting to recognize Cher for her amazing voice but our Cher is a fighter and i hope her kick some ass and fires some people they are not looking out for her best interest!

    She needs to do what Dolly does and many other legends, have her own label and have full control. The problem is Warners + her direct management team. Too many “yes” people around her. Just like Elijah saidin recent articles. Who said yes to the CD cover? Who said yes to Woman’s World being first single? Who said yes to silly lyric video for TILAM? Who said yes to other stupid promos like Jackie Collins reading some fucken lyric book? Disaster after disaster all self inflicted when the actual material on the album is brilliant. Also using twitter as a political device and cosing up with a select few fans is not right or helpful for widespread success.

      So true! I am so grateful for CTTT but the promotions is a disaster. From WB there is NO word of response or comments about this. It’s appalling and I find them very very very ignorant. They just don’t care about Cher nor her fans that has bought millions of her records through the years.
      I just don’t get it?! Here in Sweden CTTT peaked at #45! Why? Noone knows Cher has a new album!

    Warner Broters failed, that´s obvious. I don´t understand how come that they do not have enough interest in promoting such legend Cher is. On the other hand, Cher is on blame too. Seeing what was going on, she should have fought and pushed them to do more. But she just let them ruin an album that could be doing so much better with good promo.

    How can WB be expected to fund a massive promo campaign when she had excuse after excuse of how bad she sounded after performances, she never took her own promo seriously and could have done a lot more such as self fund. Not sure what the problem is, the tour is gonna be a sell out because of her massive fan base. The money is not gonna go away.

    I think Cher needs to take some responsibility too. Her public appearances were rare, she spent more time promoting her Mothers album than her own i.e (Ellen) She has divided her fan base with political propaganda and follows a few select fans on twitter and tweets the same bunch over and over, makes most other fans feel isolated. She needs to get off twitter cause she just sounds like an idiot. I think she really doesn’t give a damn herself anyway about her album and I doubt there will ever be another one given it took her a million years to make Closer to the Truth and then no promos and effort. Can’t blame warner bros completely.

    The main problem is that in this country Ageism runs rampant! Music video shows & radios do not play artist of a certain age and feel that it is ok. Look at all the great bands & singers who make their money from touring, touring & touring. It seems that only Country stations celebrate their artists no matter what the age. Young, dumb talentless one-hit wonders get all airplay! Warner Bros. should be ashamed of themselves and Cher needs to continue doing her best work and creating mediums & venues for people to find her work!

    This is one of Cher’s all-time best albums. Her sound has evolved, she contributed her talents as a co-writer and co-producer. Her vocals are stronger than ever. The material is fresh and is very good music. The promo was off to a pretty good start, but after the DWTS appearance, it ended completely. It’s so sad because both Cher and this incredible record deserve much better. I am happy for the success CTTT has thus far achieved, but I know with more adequate promotion, it could have done much better. I’m just happy with the result of this amazing album, I’m happy where Cher is as an artist at this point in her career. I have great expectations for this tour, and this gives us all something big to look forward to. I hope Cher can move forward with record companies and can continue to gives us great music in the future.

    “If at first you don’t succeed”….re-shoot the cover, which is beautiful but doesnt represent the album in any way. Record another lead single or release the Gaga single and repackage the whole thing and call it deluxe or redux or something. This really is a phenomenal album, probably the best album that an artist of Cher’s stature could humanly create, especially after being in show biz for 5 decades. It’s a GREAT pop album. Nobody has ever put out an album this perfect at this stage of their fame!!!Please don’t just let it die-especially with a tour about to begin. Get on it WB!!!!!!

The newspaper wig could represent all the gossip, news and footage about Chers long career in a beautiful way. Instead of that floosy cover. Beautiful yes, but really not that classy…

    Warner Brothers have a history of treating Cher lousy. Between 75 to 77 she made FOUR albums,many fans consider some of her best work and these albums also had zero promo.Its A Mans World also got zero, promo from them, while Believe just happened to hit big caus of the clubs! Don’t understand why she ever went back to Warner Brothers after all that. With her star power n money she should be able to release music on her own label,or release music on an official fan site like Prince did for awhile. None of these labels treat older legends right. Same w/Stevie Nicks last solo, In Your Dreams, critics called it the best album of hers in 30 yrs yet most people didn’t even know it was out. These legends that have some money to back themselves up need to start releasing music on their own instead of depending on fickle record companies. They need to take control of their ownmusic and marketing.

    Cher got billions in her bank account. I think she’s got the business mind considering she doesn’t write (almost) anything her self. But maybe she/the team relied too much on her star power? If I were Cher I would easily spend some of the millions to promote my works. Its like running a business you got to spend some to get some.

    I don’t think the cover is so bad, she looks stunning & I don’t believe that cover can affect the sales, you’re not listening to the pictures, but to the songs. As for the CTTT, I think the initial plan was to release TGT as the leading single with a fab video & lots of airplay that would have ushered us in this new era & everything would have turned out differently. But since Gaga f*ed up, the WBR lost their interest, too. They were doing one misstep after another, many errors leading to a disaster. Considering the circumstances, the album did just fine. Cher wasn’t an innocent girl herself, too. Why doing this operation in the middle of the promo? Plus, there are some performances that could have been planned better (the voice finale one). I think, at this point, the only thing left to save CTTT is ‘I walk alone’ with a proper video & featuring Pink, a bit of violent promotion, pushing it everywhere + the tour coming up, that could be the last hope or it’s gone & done. I am not sure if she’ll make more albums, because it was hard to do this one & the response from the public (not the die hards) was mild. I hope I’m wrong…

The “Cher” on twitter seems different to the “Cher” I grew up to admire and saw interviewed. I am glad twitter never existed during Cher’s major success. Partly it is because of all these ridiculous annoying girls who she treats as her best friends and the constant political garbage. Why no real fan club to communicate to fans in a fair way?

VERY sad one has nothing to do with the other,, she could have been hanging from trees if she wanted to. YET HER VOICE and TALENT should have played no part in it,, I guess the many ppl that hurt her career back in the day, must feel like SH!T BUT 50 yrs later she is still making music and is still a success..

    You what i think it happens? Cher is great more than that , she`s tremendous, amazing ultra high amazing performer, but she`s surrounded by stupid people who just doesn`t apreciatte what they have as a friend,and a s an artist, i upset so much about this because cher is a joy a golden diva, so beautiful and outrageous. I hope all the stupid people surround her, defens what she deserves, and that is all the attention of the world including the assholes from warner music. what the fuck is goin on? Cher is by far the best of everything nowadays, By now she would have ready videos for take it like a man” and i hope you find it. i really wish all the fans around the globe try to push and defend Cher to this stupid laber full of crap

    Josh agree maybe there are too many “yes” people surrounding her who are too afraid to challenge her and push for more things (like music video, better song selections). Cher being the legend she is must be quite a confronting figure to try to tell what to do. Such a tragedy that CTTT has just been forgotten about by warner and her whole team. But the promotions were a horrendous joke from the start, beginning with the appearance on The Voice, album cover and horrible/lazy inside artwork, awful music video for woman’s world and strange appearance on Dancing with the stars which lead to nothing, this album has failed to get any interest from the younger generation (unlike believe) which was key to its success.

      you hit the nail on the head. None of the appearances were hip or young. The hair was awful on The Voice. This show gets a lot of viewers so album should have moved more units. Oh and where are all the fans? 2 millions tweeters and only 10 percent bought the album.

    Since begining
    Cher choose to promote her new album with WW listening on internet since 1 year….
    Instead performing with à new version Like the best remix of dany verde …..
    Or with take it Like à Man disco remix….
    Her first TV complètely ……. Complètely not good !!!
    All was wrong her costume no sexy flat boots horrible pink punk wig she looked
    Like Old bird croac croac…
    No work on her performance and no résult only a flop
    No chorégraphie Like ever walking at léft walking at right and moving one arms Like if she was loose on Island……
    No vidéo no radio diffusion no TV diffusion
    Her first TV was a complété désaster !!!
    Its impossible to say Cher Make à good performance Coz no work behind no training nothing no originality
    It was cher but badest cher
    And réally i hâve understand Warner bross now Just à réflexion
    If u are Warner bross in front of voice looking cher…. Do y want to pût any dollars more on promotion ???????
    Certainly no ………..
    U want to stop she looked simply out

    Bad News! It´s Dori who directs DTK show! Surprisingly! 🙁 So it´s very likely that it´s gonna be VERY similar to the previous shows. Dori has already proved that she has no fantasy! Got stuck in the 90s. Y is Cher so rigid and still works with the old ppl? I know it´s a comfortable way, but does she not realize that it is not the best way?!

  43. Like Bob Mackie, so many other designers to pick from and she keeps picking him. I throughly believe that Cher must have total control at all times and these are the type of people she surrounds herself with “yes” men and women. and I believe she has not done more film simply because it takes the control out of her hands. She wants it her way and refuses all challengers, just my opinion.

      so many possibilites, we may never be CLOSE/R TO THE TRUTH.
      i respect that she feels a comfort level with her team, o agree a change is due,, i am sure BM can come up with updated designs, CHER is comfortable in updating n recreating past designs,,its all SHOWMANSHIP.. its also interesting to see how others copy her and recreate her designs/concepts.
      i am just had she will be on tour and we get to see her on stage singing less contralto, which i love, but it shows others/press/music critics her range, her vocal abilities

      if u r so disappointed with CHER! there r plenty of other artist along your like that u can be a fan of! i am sure CHER wont be missing your HUGE difference you make to her record sales! u r comments r always so negative u expect CHER to running around like a 25 years old on stage or doing zillion dance and dressing high fashion,, give her a damn break dude,, grow up, she is not rihanna, beyonce, etc,, i am sure CHER will still have a career and be on demand far longer then they will,, n u will still be complaining n buying her music n seeing her movies,, stop your crying MAN! IT IS WHAT IT IS, u cant change it,, lets be happy its an amazing album n that she is on tour again!!!!!!!

    True Christophe ….i love her and i cant change myself. ….im expecting always more from her …
    But rencognize one thing
    The promotion is à réal désaster Like for living proof expect one thing living proof was on radio on disco and cher done one réally good vidéo
    Concerning cher
    Im not always négative
    She was amazing of beauty of talent in dancing with the star she was Cher
    She was dancing and i lové it … And u Know it
    She has such beautyfull legs when she is dressing with a short dress hight heels long black haïr she is abdolutly magic
    For me the performance of dancing with The star was the best for her Côme Back
    Not voice she was not cher
    Cher making à medley béliève womans world take it Like a Man
    That was good

    Y see Im not alwayq negative Im objectiv
    I want her on thé top Im not a yes madam

    CHER is able to dance Cher is able to perform and run Cher is amazing and beautiful
    But she needs à good team
    She needs people who lové réally her and not only dollars
    She need person who say no Cher its not good no Cher dance more
    No Cher u CAN do better and better
    Not person who dont care of CHER and her succès

    Yes Im sad true Im crying true Im loving her
    They are à lot of artists but only one CHER
    For me she is the best and i would Like so so Much she stay the best

    Bob Mackie refused to make costumes for the tour! The question is who made them then. I hope they are gonna be fabulous as those of Bob´s. They could be more modern, not so Vegas-like. Hope Cher found a good and crazy designer.

    I have followed Cher all my life & I have also been a Cher Tribute Artist & a huge fan, but now I feel it is time she came CLOSER TO THE TRUTH herself, this is NOT her best album I mean like are you kidding me with this? I loved Cher when she had her REAL voice without effects. It seems lately she is only interested in swearing,sticking her finger up at the camera and stretching her face til it looks like it hurts, she says herself she is NOT a Cher fan,well is that just to get ppl to say different? Maybe some of us OLD Cher fans, have had enough, I would not waste money on this album or another concert ever again I have been to tons of other shows where the celebs acknowledge their fans Cher is all about Cher SHE HAS BECOME WAY TO COCKY, I am so done with this! It is time for her to retire and spend time with her family she admits she was never there for because she never had the time, and now she brags about MONEY IS NO OBJECT, that is just so rude and stuck up!

    BOY! CHER SURE gets it up the butt from fans,, CAN SHE ever get a break,, I think its about time she throws to the world,, “HEY LISTEN I AM CHER!! i can tweet whatever n to whomever i want on issues i am passionated about,, WHO r we to judge that,, god knows i do it!!
    Now as for CTTT, is perhaps one of her BEST,, its not over produced as other artist that need the vocal help,, in tis album Cher stretches her vocal versatility, ie on SIRENS, I HOPE YOU FIND IT, MY LOVE, contralto so controlled high notes, more of her beautiful Falsetto
    She never said she is jumping on a particulat trend or new music direction! CHER IS A LEGNED/STAR SHE SOUNDS confident and delivers songs that fit her talents and doesnt care on the current music trend, JUST as she did with believe,, and look what happened with this song “THE CHER EFFECT” every artist from Madonna to gaga to country singers jumped on!!!
    REAL VOICE???
    HOW many times did she sing live I HOPE YOU FIND IT!, not an easy song to sing,, killer notes, and a very differnt range in which she handled very well..
    JUST SAYING,, WHY R SOME OF HER FANS SO ANGRY,, its time we let this woman live her life her way,, 50 years in biz,, she must be kind of over parts of it,, new artists, with zero talent getting airplay etc,,,

    Closer To The Truth is one of Cher’s strongest releases through her career. While Woman’s World is a great song and a nice single in my personal opinion it was not the strongest song to be released as a single. My personal preference of songs in order are: Dressed To Kill, My Love, Sirens, Lover’s Forever, Woman’s World, I Walk Alone, Favorite Scars, I Hope You Find It, You Haven’t Seen The Last Of Me, I Don’t Have To Sleep To Dream, Will You Wait For Me, Take It Like A Man, Red, Pride, Lie To Me. With the first six easily being released as singles. A few songs could easily slip up or down a notch as well. As an example, I really like Red and Pride but they fall closer to the bottom of my list just because all the others have a small extra something that just pushes them a little higher. Maybe Cher will take charge of her next release as well as taking charge of the releases of her albums from the 70’s that need to be released on CD.
