Passenger: "I Think I May Have Upset Cher With Song Lyrics". (Don't Worry, She Most Likely Doesn't Even Know Who You Are.)

Cher, Passenger
UK singer/songwriter Passenger talks about his attack on fellow one-named singer Cher in his song 'I Hate'.

In his regularly-performed song 'I Hate', Passenger wrote about music legend Cher - whom was featured as a "classic beauty" this week by Brit website 'Beauty World News' - "Keep your Hollywood stars, and their stupid cars, and the botox, that makes them looked f**ked. Just grow old with grace, have you seen Cher's face, it looks like it's been hit by a truck".

The track is featured on his first hit album (though fifth attempt) 'All The Lights Out' in 2012. About the attack on the 67-year-old songstress, the 29-year-old folk-rock singer - a genre that Cher championed in the 1960's - has since told music publication 'Rolling Stone' that he "was just in a terrible mood when he penned the lyrics in the back of a really hot bus whilst touring in Australia."

Passenger"It was just harmless p*ss-taking, reallly... Some people have gotten offended with that line. I have nothing against Cher. I think she's amazing. But it was funny!"

The one-hit wonder (2012's 'Let Her Go reached #2 in the UK and #6 in the US) told the music publication that "he doesn't want Cher to take the attack seriously", adding, "I think I may have upset Cher with the lyrics." Don't worry, Passenger - Cher most likely doesn't even know who you are.

Like many - if not most - Hollywood stars, Cher has had undergone cosmetic surgery. However, unlike most Hollywood stars, Cher has been very open and honest about the work she has had done ("Yes, I have had a facelift, but who hasn't?). Just last month, a fan tweeted to Cher, "My friends think that you've had tons of plastic surgery. I tell them that they're wrong!" The perennially-popular 'Believe' singer answered "Tons, no. Some, yes. So what?"

Quoted as having said "Everyone says that I am terrified of getting old but the truth is that in my job, becoming old and becoming extinct are one and the same", Cher clearly has a point. Her eternal-youthfulness - whether achieved through her strenuous near-daily exercise routines, use of high-end beauty products, her fantastic genes and/or her (often exaggerated) use of cosmetic surgery - has helped her defy the age expectations of female singers: achieving a major music comeback in her 40's; scoring her biggest hit single and becoming the oldest woman to reach #1 on the UK and US singles chart at 52 years old; achieving her highest solo chart position on the Billboard 200 at age 67; as well as becoming the oldest woman (again, 67 years old) to have a UK top 30 hit.

Short shares:
  • 'Take It Like A Man' has slipped one place to #3 on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart.
  • 'Closer To The Truth' has re-entered the Canadian album chart at #27.
  • Cher's son Elijah Allman will be interviewed on US's 'Entertainment Tonight' on 4 February.
  • Cher now has 2-million followers on Twitter.


  1. Umm i think he should take a look in the mirror because it looks like he got hit by a truck. She is as beautiful as a goddess.

  2. Nearly everyone in Hollywood has had cosmetic surgery yet CHER is the one always tortured for it. Cher is a hot gal for 67 and they need to leave her alone. It just gets me so upset when Cher is the one they pick on all the time. Many gals VERY young are having procedures done. Don't forget, to walk around in mini-skirts and tight stuff like Cher does means you need to WORK OUT and eat healthy. Plastic surgery does not make your body tight. Working out does.

    1. It Pisses me of cher is bashed for her cosmetic work there is millions of hollywood people who have had double the work and go un noticed, fuck the haters. Cher is hot.

  7. Sometimes there are superstar performers and artists that have resided a lengthy and fabled life but with the One-named singer with the 2003 hit "Rock Wit U (Awww Baby)" passing of time are not given enough credit score for their excellent efforts to songs. One such individual is the one and only Jerry Lee Lewis. you can read more
