Cher says NO to Idol and The Voice

 

Superstar Cher has knocked back multiple offers to appear on American Idol and The Voice.  Seems Cher is not a fan of reality TV and I am with her 100% on this decision!!  Cher is too classy for these shows.  This is from Liz Smith’s column..
“THE TROUBLE with some women is that they get all excited over nothing — and then they marry him.”

This is one of my favorite quotes from the incredible Cher. The star herself has only married twice — her famous union with Sonny Bono and that roller-coaster ride with Gregg Allman — and that was quite enough. However, years ago Cher stunned me during an interview, confessing that she “absolutely” would have married Rob Camilletti, but neither one of them thought a marriage could survive the press intrusions — he was unfairly characterized as “the bagel boy.” Cher rarely shows her feelings, but on this one occasion, heartbreak was obvious, as well as her bitterness toward the media.

SPEAKING OF Cher, “American Idol” has tried for years to get her on the show, to no avail. Last week, a rumor flew that Cher was still saying “no” to “Idol,” but has agreed to appear as a judge on “The Voice.” Also, she was preparing a musical on her life in the ’60s with Sonny, partnered with producer Ron Dante. Mr. Dante produced, among other things, “Children of a Lesser God” on Broadway. One of his lesser-known credits was singing lead on the 1969 bubblegum hit “Sugar, Sugar,” with The Archies. (This was the song The Monkees refused to do, leading to a break with their management. “Sugar, Sugar” was a huge hit.)

Interesting rumors, yes? So I went straight to Cher’s press rep, Liz Rosenberg. (Liz has also repped Madonna for more than a quarter-century. The woman is a walking mass of Purple Hearts.) Liz said, “Cher is absolutely not doing ‘The Voice.’ And this musical project has been talked about for ages. It is still in its infancy.” Oh, well. Then Liz said, “But I do have something cute on Cher. Her comic book has sold out its second printing and is going into a third, with a new cover. That’s how popular it is!”

What do you think, should CHER go on Idol or The Voice??

    It would B interesting 2 see Cher judge the kids. I´d love 2 know her opinion about them cuz I consider Cher professional and it is always more valuable 2 listen 2 the opinions of someone who does his/her job well, and Cher is fu..ing awesome. At least she could appear on that shows 2 sing her new songs.

    Good for her. I do not see her doing either show. I am glad that she said no she is to much of a class act to do them.

    Cher is really not into these crappy reality talent search shows because she knows and we all know that the fame of their winners has a very short lifespan.

  4. like the talk of her and Chaz doing a reality show, she is just better than that. I wish she would do more film though.

    I think it was à good choice for Cher to say YES
    Coz this kind of Reality TV is Watching by a lot of people
    It was the occasion to show herself at a New public
    To make the promotion of her New album and her New tour
    I think Cher was great exemple for the New futur star
    It was great to show her statut of real star at the young people who dont Know
    CHER
    It was also to show to présent who is Cher ???
    a réal performer a perfectionnist …
    Cher behind the scène working With choregrapher dancers repeating her New FABULOUS TOUR

    Cher training her body each day …

    If she wants to sell her tour/ albums then she will need to go on one of them X Factor here in the uk has proven the power of its selling. record sales rocket once they have been on the show, Cher has a loyal fan base but like every artist they need to apeal to a new market to sell records.

    Cher needs to stay away from crap TV I can’t believe these shows are still on. They bore me to tears. Cute in season 1 boring after that. X factor had a bad first year and is scrambling to make it better.

    Cher, you should do American Idol, The Voice, etc. It would be good for you to be a guest…you have been in the biz for so long, not many people can say that.

    Why not go to American Idol, judge future singers, advice them abou their singing? Cher’s a legend, helping them making through American Idol, or even singing there live for them would be amazing. She’s idolized, why not be a part of American Idol?
