She looked so lovely at this, by the way. Total charmer. Mr. Cher Scholar's comments:
"She looks cool here."
"She looks younger here."
"She looks great."
"I like the big hoops."Gah. It's like he wouldn't stop talking about it. ;-)
I'm telling you, the way interviewers are making over Cher, the excitement and respect they give her...it's so remarkable. It kind of made me verklempt. And she's so giving and patient with all their fawning.
The Today Show
Cher was on The Today Show this week in her pjs and not last week. So I missed it like I'm missing everything else in this press junket. Thank the Cher Gods for the Internet. Great interview.
Best clip with the hosts fawning over her afterwards.
More Andy Cohen Show thoughts
When I met Cher at a CD signing, I blogged like a nerd about it (just to process it, man). I see Anderson Cooper has done the same thing but using his media-source CNN: http://www.towleroad.com/2013/07/anderson-cooper-apologizes-for-fawning-over-cher-video.html (Thanks to Cher scholar Dishy for sending.) Cooper outs Wolf Blitzer as a Cher fan. Speaking of Anderson on Andy Cohen, I am always interested when when Cooper talks about his mom, Gloria Vanderbilt.
Queerty.com then makes fun of him for doing so: http://www.queerty.com/anderson-cooper-dresses-in-cher-drag-wants-to-braid-chers-hair-20130704/. (Thank you Cher scholar JefRey for forwarding.)
After Andy Cohen taping a New York Times reporter did a story: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/04/fashion/cher-talks-about-what-else-being-cher.html?pagewanted=2&_r=0&emc=eta1

I want to talk more about the highlights of all this press coverage but me paws still ailing (thanks to Bruce for your advice...yes it is my upper back causing all the drama), so look to that in the weeks to come. Lots of great stuff to digest.
