It began, as such speculation often does, with a mysterious tweet — penned on a whim by the pop icon we like to call Cher:
My“For Fun”Surprise Project,First wk Sept

“Big deal,” you say. “That could mean absolutely anything.”
But one response leads us to believe Cher’s tweet means absolutely everything.
See for yourself:
Clue #2 materialized on Cher’s Twitter account more recently, when the diva answered a fan’s question in such a way that only raised more questions:

NewNowNext stoked the rumor mill by suggesting this shadowy “gorge man” in question could refer to Colton Haynes, Billy Eichner, Cheyenne Jackson, or pretty much the entire male cast. (It’s a Ryan Murphy production, after all.)
And then? Another hint: a photograph of Cher flagrantly canoodling — canoodling — with the cast of the upcoming season.
And hearts did flutter:
As Unicorn Booty points out, one enterprising Internet investigator unearthed yet more evidence that Cher will be appearing in the show — alongside her son, Chaz Bono. That strong evidence can be found here.
