BBC News posted this on Sept 4 and Cher looks great in a blonde wig with pink streaks. She talks about naming the new album and how Closer to the Truth was only a working title but she could have named it "Dressed to Kill." Ultimately she liked the ambiguity of Closer to the Truth.
She talked about her farewell tour not being a true farewell and she said this album changed her mind and that she’s not particularly compelled to be on stage (as 12 years away should indicate). The interviewer told her the new video is mesmerizing. She calls it a plain video, not the greatest ever seen (it did better than most of her videos in my test group), except for the newspaper wig (“everyone has one of those,” she jokes).
She says she only has a finite amount of energy and will have to see if she’s still up to the tour, mostly the changing cities part.
Canada Interview: http://www.cherworld.com/cher-news/et-canada-chats-with-cher-on-new-album/ - here Cher tells leaker of Gaga duet to go f^#k themselves.
This should be funnier and cooler than it comes off but Jackie Collins has recorded a dramatic reading of the new song "Woman's World:" http://www.chernews.blogspot.com/2013/08/chers-womans-world-as-read-by-jackie.html
It reminds me of when Steve Allen tried to do a dramatic reading of Donna Summers' song "Hot Stuff" on some TV special back in 1980. Maybe hilarious at parties, but not a professional enough joke.
