Everything We Know About Cher's New Album... So Far!

Earlier this week, Cher revealed that she had finished her new album – so let's take a quick-ish look at just about everything that we know about it so far (with links galore!).

The album, which Cher labelled as "hardcore dance", will be her 25th solo album and whilst it does have a title already, we haven't been told what it is. The basic album is to include 11 to 13 songs whilst another 4 bonus songs will be attached to it somehow - perhaps on an expanded version. The album will be released in September and lead single 'Woman's World' will be released in June.

Margaret Thatcher Death Hashtag #nowthatcherisdead Leads Twitter Users To Believe That Cher Is Dead!

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher passed away yesterday (8 April) aged 87. In response to the death of the equally-loved-and-loathed female PM, a hashtag surfaced on social networking site Twitter - "#nowthatcherisdead".

The lack of capitalization in the hashtag lead many to mis-read it as "Now that Cher is dead" rather than the intended "Now Thatcher is dead".

Soon enough, many users on the site started using the hashtag whilst tweeting about Cher passing away - with many opting to use the obvious "Turn Back Time" puns.
