How Cher 'emphasised' her independence after breaking up with Sonny Bono

While creative achievements are to be expected from this brilliant woman, her love of tattoos may come as a bit of a shock to some.... However, given how epathetic and flamboyant Cher has always been, it's unlikely to surprise her fans.

Cher's first tattoo, which she got right after her breakup with Sonny Bono

When it comes to extravagance and innovation, there is no better expert on these matters than a Cheryou can't find! She was the first person in the history of music to use a technique autotunewhich later became known as the "Cher voice effect" - a phenomenon we can hear in her legendarily famous song. "Believe.".

By the way: with this hit, Cher became "the most mature artist"which managed to reach the top of the Billboard Hot 100! This achievement was achieved in 1998, when the single was released, respectively. But if such creative achievements are to be expected from this brilliant woman, then her love of tattoos may come as a bit of a shock to some... However, given how epathetic and flamboyant Cher has always been, it's unlikely to surprise her fans.

About the first tattoo

У Sherilyn Sarkissian really has tattoos, which she, despite her not young age, proudly demonstrates and willingly talks about them at any opportunity. But in 2008, one of her favourite "drawings" singer still deleted. About this she said this:

"In the days of my youth, only bad girls got tattoos: me, Janis Joplin and biker chicks. Now it doesn't mean anything... Today you won't surprise anyone with it. But back then, a tattoo said too much about you. I got my first tattoo shortly after I broke up with Sonny, and it made me feel completely independent! It was like I became a different person, and it was really cool..."

The couple, who had previously been a successful duo, broke up between 1972 and 1974 (information varies from source to source). So that's around the time Cher made her first tattoo and became a "bad girl." But what exactly was the drawing she chose?

The singer's revelations

Cher

Cher is one of those artists who despite her status and age is adored speak out with the press. Just give me an excuse, as they say! And so, in 2013, an American comedian David Letterman, also known as a TV and film producer, "tipped off" during the dialogue: he started asking the singer about her tattoos, and teasing. Specifically, he told Cher:

"As far as I know, you have a tattoo you've never seen before?"

To this, the legendary performer replied:

"Not really: I have one tattoo that I hardly ever see."

Cher pointed her finger behindshe smiled, and then she continued:

"And all my boyfriends liked her terribly! You see, it's made on a spot that I have to stand with my back to the mirror to look at. It's the very spot I'm sitting on! It was my first tattoo, which said: "Hello, sailor!"

While Letterman and the audience laughed and applauded, Cher continued nonchalantly:

"But that's only part of the tattoo. The second part, a little further on, is: "New in town?"

Perhaps you and I are not able to understand the deep message hidden in these "body messages". However, it was probably a joke (which we will come back to later). Nevertheless, according to Cher, when she was young, it was "cool.". Today, however, the singer admits: all her tattoos are "outdated".

"I don't like them today, I find them old-fashioned..."

"The coolest girl ever!"

Cher's buttocks tattoos are for real. are not a secret. In 1989, she starred in the music video for her song "If I Could Turn Back Time"in which she appeared in front of the public in a very daring spectacular outfit... And in some shots we can see "something incomprehensible", which, apparently, is her first tattoo.

In one interview, Cher revealed that her first tattoo wasn't "Hey sailor!" and "New in town?" at all, but rather. garden (which we believe is much more believable). In particular, the singer said:

"My mother was shocked. Everyone was horrified! But I was more than pleased!"

Today, Cher is increasingly thinking about to get rid of your tattoos. But there's one she'll never touch: and that's crystal dagger on the inside of her right hand. Speaking about her first drawing, Cher emphasises:

"Even though this tattoo may be long outdated, I just can't imagine myself without this garden! Today it may seem so silly... But back then it meant a lot to me and it gave me confidence and self-sufficiency. I was the coolest girl ever!"
