Cher Talks Sassy Madonna Response & Not Being a 'Big Cher Fan' on 'Behind the Tweets'
Cher’s Twitter is the stuff that endless memes are made of. Her tweets are instantly quotable, very absurd and always, undeniably on-brand. So she's a natural fit for Twitter’s Behind the Tweets series -- which has corralled the likes of Troye Sivan and Shawn Mendes into offering more context into their most viral tweets.
On Friday (Sept. 28) -- the release day of her ABBA covers album Dancing Queen -- she finally dives into the deep end of some of her most delightful commentary.
About her “hi” tweets, which have racked up more than 20,000 retweets combined, the “Believe” singer says that “[she] never thought it was interesting or cute.”
@cher hi— Cher (@cher) September 13, 2013
Hi again— Cher (@cher) July 25, 2018
She also justifies her self-deprecating tweets, including one announcement about almost finishing up her album, where she revealed that she’s “NOT A BIG CHER FAN.”
ALMOST FINISHED WITH ALBUM--— Cher (@cher) July 25, 2018
THINK ITS GOOD,& (as we all know) I’M NOT A BIG CHER FAN
“I like doing stuff, but I’m not necessarily interested in watching myself do anything. Or listening,” she explained.
Some of her most memorable tweets, however, don’t have a particular tale of whimsy attached to them. Her iconic tweet about her iPad freezing up, for instance, was just something that made her laugh.
So, too, was her response from a fan asking about what she did on Madonna’s birthday in 2012. She shies away from her beef with the pop star -- and that tweet about the medical examination she told the fan she had on that day. “I said I had a colonic. I didn’t, really, but I thought it was really funny. It made me laugh,” she says about that tweet.
She closes out the clip by expressing relief that she's done making Dancing Queen, as per a tweet she fired off ranting about how she's "too old for this [poop emoji]."
“It’s true. I’ve been in the studio making this album for what seems like most of my adult life, and I’m glad it’s over.”
