Cher Debuts New Hairstyle on Twitter!

Cher's new hairstyle
Cher has uploaded a photograph of herself - with her new hairstyle - onto Twitter.

Cher announced on Christmas Eve that she had cut herself a fringe/bangs; "I got up at 6AM and cut bangs!... I only look 50 with bangs!!"

However, since then, we haven't seen Cher - or even heard from her on Twitter. That is until now!

Just moments ago, the star briefly returned to the social networking site to upload a photograph of herself - with the new hairdo - taken during "Christmas dinner". The 66-year-old, who popularized bangs in the 1960's, hasn't sported the look for many years - well, not with her real hair.

Of course - like always - Cher has been in the news many times this year. Some stories picked up by major publications include her ongoing spat with Donald Trump, the upcoming Broadway play based on her life and her announcement that fellow superstar Pink had wriiten tracks for her new album.

In this past month alone she pleased fans with the re-release of her 2000 online-only album 'Not.com.mercial', and the announcement that her upcoming album will be released in March was met with mixed reactions by those fans. This past month also saw Cher do a private performance in Russia.

PHOTOS: Cher's Home Gets Dressed Up For Christmas

Cher
Whilst those of us that celebrate Christmas have dressed up our homes with Christmas trees, lights, tinsel and other festive decorations, Cher has shown that she isn't any different from us - she's tweeted about her own decorations. However, Cher's are slightly more grand than ours - as expected!

The 66-year-old superstar, who sang background vocals on Phil Spector's late-1963 festive album 'A Christmas Gift For You', tweeted about her decorations for the December 25 celebrations.

More Photos of Cher In Russia: The Ageless Diva In A Familiar Costume

Cher in Russia
We already knew what Cher would be wearing for her 14 December one-off Russia gig - the 'Believe' hit-maker shared on Twitter two weeks before-hand that she would be digging out costumes from her past tours and 2008-2011 stint in Las Vegas.

If you've already seen the video clip of highlights from the Russia gig, you'll have seen some of the outfits that Cher returned to for her performance.

One outfit she donned for the private gig was the Indian-inspired one she wore during her 'The Farewell Tour', whilst singing 'All or Nothing' among other hits.

UPDATED! PHOTOS: Cher in Russia

Cher in Russia
As I'm sure we all know, Cher performed a private one-off concert in Russia on 14 December. Of course, we all wanted to see some footage of the show - or at least some photos. Although nothing from the private Russia gig has yet turned up, we do have some photos of the 'Believe' singer in Russia.

Two photos of Cher in the country appeared on the singer's Twitter account. Whilst uploading the first of the two, she wrote, "Russia is great! Cold but great! Here is a picture of me wearing my friend's hat!"

PHOT0S: Cher at LAX Airport

Cher at LAX Airport, 2012
Cher was photographed at LAX Airport in Los Angeles.

All in black, including leggings, boots, leather coat and a large hat, Cher was snapped passing through LAX Airport - seemingly on her way to Russia, where she is due to perform a gig in a few days.

As well as the large black hat, Cher topped off her look with a large silver handbag and a pair of dark sunglasses. Although she still looked stunning, the outfit was low-key - for Cher's standards - with the 66-year-old sporting her real hair as opposed to one of her trademark wigs.

Cher's New Album To Be Released In March

Cher - the release date of her new album is March
Billboard has stated that Cher's 25th studio album will be released in March 2013.

Now, I'm sure that this headline - "Cher's new album to be released in March" - will be met with some groans, and sighs of disappointment. After all, we've been waiting for the album for what seems like centuries - and March seems like a long way away right now. However, at least we now have something official about the album's release date.

Ending the release date guessing game for us, Billboard.com wrote, "Cher's next studio album, her first since 2001's 'Living Proof', is due out in late March."

A Peek At Cher's Costumes for Russian Gig

Cher has treated us to snapshots of some of the elaborate costumes in her closet that she has lined up to wear during her upcoming one-off private gig in Russia.

Cher tweeted, “Rosie is here and we are trying on 'Russian costumes'. Oh, I'll take pictures, but it's a mess! Looks like ten drag queens had a 'drag off'”.

When a Twitter user asked who Rosie is, Cher answered, “Rosie is my friend and has taken care of me and my costumes since Lincoln was a lawyer!”

She then uploaded the photographs, saying “These are the costumes that go with the songs that I'm singing in Russia! There are many more, because we have three costume changes for each song! So many tours”
