CHER: Superstar opens up about being overlooked by Rock Hall
Cher admits that being overlooked by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame "used to annoy me, but I know it’s just a boys’ club, and they don’t think I’m cool enough. But that’s O.K. My life is humming along without it."
She made the remarks in a lengthy interview with The New York Times.
And her life is humming along in high gear: The Cher Show officially opens on Broadway on December 3rd, the night after she receives the Kennedy Center Honors.
She credits playwright Rick Elice [pr: Ellis] with the show's device of using three different actors to play her on stage -- and have them occasionally interact. She says, "I’ve lived for so long that I really have been distinct personalities. You have to know something more about me after the musical... I want it to be true and fun and like life is: sometimes you’re great and sometimes you’re pathetic. Sometimes you’re tired, and sometimes you break down. It should be like that. And nothing should be glossed over."
