4h8oya Cher nailed for F word indecency

Although The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reversed it’s opinion on two ‘indecency’ cases, it reaffirmed its findings that Cher and Nicole Richie breached broadcast standards after uttering the F-word in separate award-show TV appearances.

No fines were proposed for the Cher and Richie incidents, as heard on Fox during the 2002 Billboard Music Awards and 2003 Billboard Music Awards, respectively.

The duo was saved from paying the fine, as the ‘indecency’ incidents occurred before the FCC decided that the F-word was bad even when used as an adjective, rather than a verb.

“Ms. Richie frequently used indecent language in inappropriate contexts,” E!online quoted FCC’s decision, as saying.

According to the FCC, Richie did not stick to her script at an award show during a banter session with fellow presenter and Simple Life co-star Paris Hilton.

Richie had to say: “Have you ever tried to get cow manure out of a Prada purse? It’s not so freaking simple,” but instead she substituted ‘s—t’ for ‘manure’ and ‘[bleep]ing’ for ‘freaking.’

A year earlier, at the 2002 Billboard Music Awards, it was Cher who used indecent language while accepting her Lifetime Achievement Award. She had said: “People have been telling me I’m on the way out every year, right? So [blee] em.” (ANI)

    I still remember when Cher did that, it was awsome! However, it was the censor’s fault for not catching it, not Cher’s. It was not her fault at all.

    For goodness sake, this happened how long ago??? Surely to goodness there is something more interesting to talk about than someone uttering a swear word YEARS ago. We have all done it, some more than others and while it sure doesn’t sound very good at certain times and in certain places, it is a fricking fact of life! Having just spent several long hours in a hospital (as a visitor), I have sat and listened to various words used – particularly in the case of an unexpected emergency – and guess what? It was ignored. Life goes on and Cher is no different to the rest of us. She is however, a very talented caring person who deserves to be able to have a life and to put any minor mistakes she has made in her past where they belong IN THE PAST. Jan [email protected]

    lilcher, next time someone hassles you about Cher, the best remedy is to call her a jealous bitch and keep moving…..I went to a Cher concert, I’d say sometime in the early 80’s and the Diva literally put her hand up, stopped the concert some lady apparently made some off the cuff remark to Cher while she was walking by her, so Cher stops everything calls the lady a jealous bitch, and then continued singing… a priceless Cher moment !! I thought I would share with you…..keep you chin up and remember Cher always has the last laugh, and always will. And us loyal fans of many years, myself included have had the last laugh right along with her or as Cher would have it “take that you bitches”

    This was a really hysterical “fuckem” remark made in reference to Cher’s llongevity when others thought she would be gone by now. I think it was more Cher’s way of getting in your face and being proud of herself and her achievements rather than a narly bar brawling fuckem in those terms. I think lot is made out of nothing here. Cher ROCK ON MAMA

    I don’t really like the F-word, but unless she signed a contract prohibiting her from swearing, there’s not much to be done about it. They had to have to known what they were getting into when they invited her, right? Some people talk that way out of habit, it certainly wasn’t meant to discredit their shows. Get over it guys! It’s over and done with and they don’t have to ask them back if they don’t want to.

    The Bush administration is responsible for the deaths of 650,000 Iraq citizens (half are children) and nearly 3,000 American soldiers, but the new and improved rightwing FCC is targeting Cher for indecency?

    Fuck Bush and Rock on Cher! Can’t wait to see you in Vegas in 2008.
