Cher Dishes Out Disappointment About 'The Greatest Thing' .Plus Expect A "Mystery Guest" On Her New Album!
Since the formation of 'Cher News' back in August 2011, the Cher-Lady Gaga duet 'The Greatest Thing' has been a hot topic. The song was originally a Cher solo track given to her for her new album by its songwriter Lady Gaga. However, Gaga then pleasantly surprised Cher by opting to make the song a duet. Cher talked highly of the duet - at one point she was even expecting it to be the lead single from her new album. However, Gaga was displeased with the track and pulled the plug on it.
One fan wrote to Cher on Twitter, "I just wanted to ask... Gaga gave you 'The Greatest Thing', right? Can't you just sing it solo without her? Or was it meant to be sung only as a duet?" Cher answered, "I could but it's a great duet. I redid my vocal - good call. I always hated my vocal and loved hers! Now I like Mine too! RedOne was to redo the track but he blew it off. I have singers who like the song, but not the production, it's old. RedOne's contract says that no-one is allowed to touch the track and he's missing in action. What the f**k."
A fan of Cher asked her on Twitter, "Do you think that this new CD is your best work yet?" Cher answered, "Definitely! And we all know that I'm not a fan of a certain old singer".
It seems that the new album will come in three versions. One fan asked the 'Strong Enough' singer, "Will the album have a standard and deluxe version too?" Cher replied, "It will have three". She still seems unsure on exactly how many songs will be included on the album; twice when asked how many songs will be on the album, she responded, "11-16".
Excitingly, we can expect a "mystery guest" on the album! When a fan asked Cher about her collaborations on the album, Cher responded, "Jake Shears, Pink and mystery guest! It's not a duets CD, it's a Cher CD. Having said that... They're great". Maybe it's her 'Burlesque' co-star Christina Aguilera as once hinted, or maybe not. Who would you like the "mystery guest" to be?
