More Details About 'Woman's World' Music Video - Tweets From The Choreographer and Stylist

Thanks to Twitter, we now know a few more details about the 'Woman's World' music video.

Popular choreographer, Brian Friedman (@brianfriedman) - whose notable works include the Britney Spears videos 'Hold It Against Me' and 'Toxic' - tweeted very early this morning, "It's a wrap! I am so incredibly in awe of the magic and brilliance that is Cher. What an icon. Thank you for this adventure".

An hour ago, he tweeted, "Still gagging over getting to spend the day choreographing and working with the incomparable Cher yesterday!"

Cher Currently Filming 'Woman's World' Music Video!

Cher and Ray Kay
...or is about too, very, very soon!

Yes, today is the day that Cher is filming the music video to her comeback single 'Woman's World'. It's almost mid-day in Los Angeles at the time of me writing this article - so Cher will likely be on set, or very close to being so.

Last night, the night before the big shoot, Cher tweeted, "I'm watching 'Bourne Legacy'. I should go to sleep but I'm not ready. The film is great, and I'm restless on the night before work.It will be a 24-hour day for me [tomorrow]".

We have very little knowledge about the video. Thanks to a Norwegian online publisher, we do now know that the directer of the video is Reinert K. Olsen - better known as Ray kay.

Contest News Round-Up: New Winners, Backlash, Auction Results

If you're a fan of Cher (then you're certainly on the right blog!) then you'll know that for the last few days, it has all been about contests when it comes to the 'Gypsies, Tramps & Thieve' hit-maker. Proof of that is the numerous recent articles about them here on 'Cher News'.

The contests, which see the winners getting to spend hours on the 'Woman's World' music video shoot on the 22 January, have seen lots of confusion (again, take a look at the 'Cher News' articles') and disappointment (you'll read about that in a minute). But let's not forget, it has seen the dreams come true for a number of fans.

The disappointment? When the seven Twitter contest winners were announced, poor Cher, who did a very generous thing, was sent an array of unfriendly tweets from fans moaning that they were not chosen.

UPDATED! Winners Announced! The Twitter Contest Is Still On!

Jump for joy, Cher fans - the Twitter contest is still on!

Fans of multi-talented entertainer Cher may have been a little confused over the last few days (me included!) as Cher announced a contest on Facebook where the winning fan is to be transported over to Malibu to watch the filming of her 22 January 'Woman's World' music video. An auction was also announced where the highest-bidder (who must be female) is to watch the filming, plus have a walk-on role in the video.

Now, we weren't expecting any of this - we were expecting a contest on Twitter where Cher would randomly pick 6 users on the site who would be transported to the filming and have a meet-and-greet with Cher. It looked, for quite a while, as if the two aforementioned contests had replaced the Twitter one. Luckily, that's not the case - as we now know thanks to Cher's tweets.

Contest Launched For A Fan To Meet Cher On The Set Of New Music Video!

The contest to meet Cher and preview her new music video has started!

Rememeber the contest that Cher has been tweeting about for months? Of course you do! However, the rules have been changed significantly.

The prize still remains the same - the winner will preview Cher's 'Woman's World' music video when it is shot (now on 22 January). However, instead of the initial plan of having six fans fly out to LA, it is now just one. And the whole idea of Cher randomly picking winners on Twitter has been changed too - the winner will now be chosen via a draw on Facebook.

Get Excited! Your Chance To Meet Cher - And Preview Her New Music Video!

Cher's giving her twitter followers the chance to be sent over to Los Angeles to meet her and preview her new music video as part of a contest!

Her July tweet read, "I'm going in the studio tonight. I'd like to have six songs mastered and then to bring four lovelies out to Malibu to hear them! Everyone says that one is as good as 'Believe'?... I think this will need to be a contest to pick four to six people."
