"A girl can wait for the right man to come along, but in the meantime it doesn't mean she can't have a wonderful time with all the wrong ones"
I love these vintage pictures of Cher. I think she's an amazing, strong woman. Cher's been around for so long, she's like an institution. I also think she's a very good actress and I've really enjoyed her films particularly Moonstruck, Mask, Silkwood, Tea With Mussolini and Mermaids. Here are some of my favourite Cher quotes.
"It's not necessary, in order to be a complete person, that I have man. It's not the be-all and end-all of my life"
"Men aren't necessities, they're luxuries"
"The trouble with some women is they get all excited about nothing - and then marry him"
"Men should be like Kleenex, soft, strong and disposable"
"To me marriage is for five or ten years"
"I'm friends with all my exes, except my husbands"
Sonny and Cher
On Sonny "When they're gone you appreciate them. That's why it's important for me to dedicate the book and album, because I can't remember what we were arguing about, and I bet he can't either"
"I'm scared to death of being poor. It's like a fat girl who loses five hundred pounds but is always fat inside. I grew up poor and will always feel poor inside. It's my pet paranoia"
"I'm insecure about everything, because I'm never going to look in the mirror and see this blonde, blue-eyed girl. That's my idea of what I'd like to look like"
"Nothing lifts me out of a bad mood better than a hard workout on my treadmill. It never fails. Exercise is nothing short of a miracle"
"I think the longer I look good, the better gay men feel"
"Yes, it's a man's world, but that's all right because they're making a total mess of it. We're chipping away at their control, taking the parts we want. Some women think it's a difficult task, but it's not"
"Women have to harness their power - it's absolutely true It's just learning not to take the first no. And if you can't go straight ahead, you go around the corner"
"Women are the architects of society"
"If you really want something you can figure out how to make it happen"
"I've always taken risks, and never worried what the world might think of me"
"I don't like Bush. I don't trust him. I don't like his record. He's stupid and he's lazy"
"If you're black in this country, if you're a woman in this country, if you're any minority in this country at all, what could possibly possess you to vote Republican?"
"Some years I'm the coolest thing that ever happened, and then the next year everyone's so over me, and I'm just so past my sell by date"
"I trust my friends. They force me to examine myself and encourage me to grow"
"I won't be able to do what I'm doing forever. There aren't that many scripts floating around for fifty year-old chicks"
"Until you're ready to look foolish, you'll never have the possibility of being great"
"You've probably noticed already that I'm dressed like a grown up... I apologise to the Academy and I promise never to do it again"
This post is for Kim Bowen and and Vix, (see more about her on the previous post). Both of whom will totally appreciate Cher's words. I also think Vix bears more than a passing resemblance to Cher xxx
