Which of her hit songs would I know?

Cher has sold over 100 million records over her 53 year career, and is best known for huge hits like Believe, If I Could Turn Back Time, Gypsies Tramps & Thieves, and therefore the Shoop Shoop Song.

1998 hit Believe was an enormous club smash, and was nominated for 2 Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Best Dance Recording, winning the latter.

But the pop diva actually HATES plenty of her best-known music. She revealed: "I’m not a Cher fan.

"I just don’t think my aesthetic taste lies therein direction."

She branded 1998 smash Believe — No 1 in 23 countries — "a nightmare" and said she stormed out of the studio.

She dismissed 1995 album it is a Man's World — including her hit Walking In Memphis — as "crap", adding: "I didn't like all of it."

Cher said she wanted to create songs like Joni Mitchell but since the 1970s had been given ones she didn’t like.

She once fought her label’s bid to create a dance album until chief Rob Dickins told her: "I'm visiting send you some songs. once you like them, tell me."

She also blasted her hits Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves, Half-Breed and Dark Lady.

But Cher reckons 1989's If I Could Turn Back Time was "OK", adding: "By that point, I worked out I wasn’t visiting be the Eagles."

Never one to go into reverse, Piers continued: "She's a grandmother, it's like for goodness sake put it away, become old gracefully, put them away."

She is one in all the world's most successful recording artists, an icon of 1980s and 1990s pop-rock music, and her songs have hit no. 1 in over 20 countries.

Does Cher have children?

Cher has two children from two separate relationships. Cher had Chastity Bono (now referred to as Chaz Bono), with Sonny Bono in 1969.

Seven years later Cher had a son, Elijah Blue, with Gregg Allman. Elijah is now's the singer and guitarist for the dance orchestra Deadsy.

In December 2020 Cher told CNN she found "very difficult" to simply accept her son Chaz Bono beginning as trans.

The pop icon, 74, confessed that Chaz's transition from female to male between 2008 and 2010 "wasn't easy" initially.

"It was very unlike me to, within the beginning, have an issue with Chaz being gay, and it disappeared like that," she told CNN.

“Then we talked about [whether Chaz was] transgender for several years and [he] would say, ‘No, I don’t want to [transition]'. and so he went and said, ‘OK, i would like to try to to this.’”

Cher - who saved the "world's loneliest elephant" in November 2020 recalled: "But it wasn't easy. I remember calling, and therefore the old [voicemail] message was on the phone, which was very difficult.
