big106 Cher on Madonna

Turning 60 has not slowed down Cher’s sharp tongue. ‘I look at Madonna and think “Nice try dear, but you’re not doing anything I didn’t do 20 ago”,’.  Some people have criticised Madonna for not being unique on her current Confessions World tour and Cher may be one of them.  After all she makes her grand appearance coming down from the ceiling and cracks a whip…. sound familiar?  So who is the more innovative DIVA in your opinion? Who has the best costumes and who gives the best concert?

    I went to see Cher’s Farewell Tour three times and was amazed on how her audience varied from the very young to older folks. A part of Cher touches everyone. Forty two years later and still going strong! That is a legend to me. As far as the dancing comments Cher does not need to dance she has so much star presence that it is not necessary! Thanks Cher!

    hey cher your comments are right on the money. everything madonna does she copies from you . i dont think its on purpose its just that you are the original trendsetter for all female acts.you were the first to show your belly button then madonna ,janet jackson, brittany spears, to name a few. their shows are imitations of yours you were doing these beautiful shows with all the costume changes and the critics said it was so las vegas now they are all doing what you started. you were always ahead of everyone. well cher you know what im talking about cher fans beleive me cher is the one and only original.

    cher is no. 1 – defenitely! saw her concert at köln arena / cologne germany in 2004 during the farewell tour. it was amazing, she was just gorgeous – over 12.000 fans got wild and crazy – her performance, her style, her voice and her personality -she was and is always unique! madonna is ok – sometimes a bit boring and cheap – she will never reach to cher – never be as great as cher! a long time cher fan from germany

    I’ve seen both of them live and Madonna’s definitely way much bettter, sorry guys…. Cher was more off-stage then she was on the stage. The gaps between here being on stage were filled with some video shoots the absolutely whole time which became very boring after a while. It was more of a dress party and home video show then a concert….. No no no, give me Madonna who’s doing something ON the stage

    Thank you Mike on 5/27. You’ve made an important point and I agree. Cher and Madonna are 2 entirely different performers and talents. Comparing the two seems pointless and petty. I am big fans of both though a much bigger fan of Cher particulary because Cher has a reliable, powerful, untouchable singing voice. I go to see Cher primarily for the VOICE whereas I go see Madonna for the “installation art” quality of her stage shows. Her voice (albeit unique to Madonna) is just one element of the whole package. Content wise, Madonna’s shows are significantly more edgy and artistically compelling than Cher’s which appeals to my sensibility as a visual artist. Madonna is not gifted with a great singing voice (as she admits herself) yet I love the songs she has written and sung from the beginning of her career to the present day. I see a definite evolution in Madonna’s work which seems wholly representative of the various stages in her life. Cher, on the other hand, commands a natural singing ability with good vocal range and pitch. Madonna’s singing seems much more like a job. I’d gladly like to hear Cher sing any song and she seems capable of it. I can’t reallly say the same for Madonna. For me, Madonna is a performace artist who sings while Cher is a vocal artist who performs. Each must be respected for their unique syle, individuality and vision.

  10. I absolutly love them both…….but come on Madonna doesnt hold a candle to Cher. I’ve both huge fans but if I had to choose 1 I would go with CHER. They both have good songs but I play my Cher CD’s alot more than I do my Madonna ones. And I saw Cher’s “Farewell Tour” 8 times before it eneded which lasted 3 years. Im going to the Madonna “Confessuons Tour” this summer but I will probably go once. I love Cher’s glitter costumes and her entrances to her shows are absolutly mind blowing. Madonna also puts on a great show but doesnt talk to the audiance at all, which she has to do from time to time. As a 25 yr. old Gay Male in my oppinion Cher is the true DIVA!!! She works harder, has great albums, #1 songs countless of times, and was the only entertainer in history of music to let a Tour go for that long and It was only because people love seeing her, thats why they kept coming back. “I LOVE YOU CHER!!!”

  11. This is a hard subject. I equally love both women and their music. I am actually going to see Madonna in Philly next month. Personally, I believe Madonna’s music to be more deep rooted and spiritual, the lyrics have more inner meanings. Cher’s music is more in your face and right to the point. One thing is for sure though….Cher is DEFINITELY a better actor! And I believe that if I was to ever meet either of the two women, I think Cher would be cool and actually talk to me, whereas Madonna would have more of an ego and just smile and say a simple hello.

    having just seen the confessions tour 2 days ago, i have to sadly say how disappointed i am. as i left the concert, my only thought was, did she really need the money that badly to put on such a boring affair. mind you, hearing jump live was worth the admission, but hands down the farwell tour was the better of the 2. i swear madge sampled take me home during the disco inferno/new dance song too. cher i love u

    from the minuet she comes on stage, the whole audiance is captivated. and cher is right…madonna is doing exactly th same thiungs cher did aages ago…but without the class….for example..

    turn back time outfit….classey,not sluttish, doesnt make u cringe at the thought of it…and is overal fab…

    Madonna hung up outfit (leoddard) well….Makes u think…oh my god she is NOT wearing that….looks lie shes tryin to be 50 million years younger,,,,and its over all…TRAGIC!!!

    I think it is impossible and pointless to compare these two legends!!! Both Cher and Madonna are great performers. Madonna’s 2006 World I do not think was inspired(or for the Cher perfered crowd plagerized) but the themes of the show she says were inspired from different things, like the disco Ball. In a Harper’s Bazzar interview she mentioned ” I feel I have finally come out of my Disco ball” (something like that!!), so that explains that! The Horse theme and the whips was probably inspired from her previous horse accident which her performances show to say if you fall off a horse you get back on! Like I said they are two undeniably talented legends and two beautiful women! So I guess I’m nuetral on that!! But as far as music goes I like Madonna, BUT BUT but I recently heard a cher song and I really like so I’m neutral there too!! Can’t wait to see them this summer and in the fall!!!

    Hahah! This site is so damn funny! Have any of you Madonna haters ever even SEEN a Madonna concert; in person or viz dvd!? I bet not… Madonna is very relevant, creative and an awesome overall performer. I’m not hating on Cher at all; I got love for her. But when it comes to putting on a “show” (not a concert) then Madonna is abso-frikken-lutely AMAZING. I’m just wondrin why so many folk hate on Madonna for; especially in a battle that has propelled over the years to be nothing more than the opinions of both arttists’ fans. Please… Madonna AND Cher have much more important things going on in their lives than wondering what the other one is doing. Geeeez, Louize. It is 2008 now.

    tal vez tengan razon al decir que a madonna le falta originalidad pero ella no tiene la culpa de que todo le salga bien
    Nadie sera mejor que madonna EN TODOS LOS TIEMPOS DEL MUNDO.

    aa y por favor quien le va a creer que tuvo un amorio con tom , o a lo mejor tomy la confundio con un travesti ( con eso de que segun le gusta el arroz con popote ) y termino dandole .

    Love both, but, outside of what she wore, Cher did not push the envelope and shake up the culture like Madonna did with her work. So, not sure what she meant back in the day when she’d say things like that. And, unfortunately, Cher’s never been a big critical success for her music (appearances on best-of lists, etc.) One of my favorites, though.

    Cher has said great stuff about Madonna in recent times, so all is good between the two.

    Well, well…still Madonna vs. Cher, huh? No comparison. Without groundbreaking Cher, there would be no Madonna. Or Lady GaGa. As far as female artists go, there is virtually no one as individual, acclaimed or unabashedly unstoppable as Cher. Her wit, charisma, acting ability, voice and fashion sense can be outdone by no one. Her agelessness and appeal have crossed age-barriers known to but a few. Once again with Cher’s latest CD “Closer to the Truth” she breaks records for most #1’s by a solo performer.”Woman’s World” her new hit dance single hits Billboard’s #1. Cher is still totally relevant. I am not so sure about her would-be imitators. Keep going, Cher. You never cease to make us smile.
