Cher Says Lady Gaga Is Not The New Madonna And, Duh, There’s No New Cher


You can’t be the young anybody else. That’s why Gaga is Gaga and Madonna is Madonna. All these people are themselves. You can’t be the young anybody… There is no young me. If you get to be that, if you get to a certain level, you have to be the young you … Until I’m dead. Maybe when I’m dead, someone will go, ‘Oh that’s the young Cher.'”

      There never will be another Cher. She holds that title and rank for posterity.

      Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan, but how can anyone be a “young” Cher when all her body parts have different ages???

      That Octomom look is dreadful

      She’s right. Nobody is the “next” anything. Like Judy Garland said “It’s better to be a first rate version of yourself than a second rate version of somebody else”. Legends transcend comparisons.

      I agree with her, she is usually sensible and fun. BUT this is a gay site, so if nobody minds I’ll at something bitchy.

      So, if there was a “Young Cher” that would make that person around 50?

      Whew! Glad I got that out of my system.

      Isn’t Lady Gaga currently selling more records than Madonna?

      @HirsuteOne: I really don’t think anyone out there wants to be another Cher, but there are plenty that wanted to be another Madonna or Monroe, etc..

      @BlogZilla: Madonna’s a billionaire and Lady Gaga’s “Applause” is plummeting.
