Sticking with Twitter.... Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres tweeted a funny photoshopped image of herself and Cher to her 18 million(!) followers, writing with it, "I had to change my outfit before the show. My guest and I were wearing the same thing."
'Girls Just Want To Have Fun' singer Cyndi Lauper - a friend of Cher's who was her supporting act for two tours - tweeted Cher. Cher tweeted to her 1.46million followers, "I can tell you now, just how strong my mom is. She was sicker than I let on. She is on the mend now but her pneumonia was life-threatening." Lauper replied, "So sorry to hear that. I hope she feels much better soon. And my mom sends her love too". Cher tweeted back to her, "Thanks babe! I hope you're well and happy! You Have a special place in my heart." The former-bright-haired 80's pop sensation wrote back letting Cher know that she was about to buy Georgia's new album; "And you in mine... I am going on iTunes to find your CD".
After Cher and her mothers' appearances on US TV, Georgia's album 'Honky Tonk Woman' has shot to number one on Amazon's Miscellaneous MP3 Albums chart.
The 'New York Daily News' has reviewed Georgia and Cher's upcoming May 6th Lifetime documentary 'Dear Mom, Love Cher':
"While the rest of us send cards or maybe flowers to Mom for Mother Day’s, Cher arranges to have her mother’s life chronicled in a professional documentary.
Cher also arranges to have it shown on Lifetime.
Even before we get to the part where Cher also had 30-year-old tapes remastered so her mother’s first record album finally can be released, we’re thinking, wow, it must be nice to be Cher’s mother.
Either way, Cher is one good daughter.
And this gentle 42-minute look at the life of Georgia Holt is pleasant, sentimental and sweet.
It’s so affectionate that it’s not even a buzz kill when Cher, her sister and Georgia recount how Grandpa, who was a dynamiter for the railroad, blew himself up one day.
Holt was born into Depression-era poverty in Arkansas and moved as a child to similar poverty in California. She vowed she would not always live like that, and when this documentary pans across the Malibu waterfront property where it is being filmed, it’s clear that vow worked out.
Holt didn’t get everything she wanted. She really wanted a showbiz career, but she only made it to the fringes.
She sang briefly with Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. She won a beauty contest. She had small walk-on roles on “I Love Lucy” and “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.”
The album she recorded in 1979 was shelved.
There were also six marriages.
Yet for all that, Holt seems happy. She seems pleased, not resentful, that Cher became the star she didn’t. She seems to enjoy the good life she lives.
Cher seems happy to show us she’s enjoying it. Cher is a good daughter."
Back in January, a stylist working on Cher's still-unseen 'Woman's World' music video posted the following photograph of a dress made completely out of gift cards, which may or may not be from the video. Well, there's a good sign that it is from the video!
The Official Cher Community') Cher's sister Georganne was asked by Ellen DeGeneres on her show as to what she thought of Cher's outrageous wardrobe, to which she begin to explain that during one particular video shoot, Cher was wearing a wig made out of paper that reached her feet. Well, one of the contest winners that got to be at the 'Woman's World' video shoot (@kaitybby17) tweeted a photograph of "strands of Cher's newspaper wig" (presented nicely in her copy of Cher's The First Time' autobiography). Well, what goes well with a floor-length newspaper wig? A gift card dress of course!
