Drake scoops 13 gongs at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards
Following the news of Academy Award winner Philip Seymour Hoffman's death, widely reported to have been linked to his use of heroin, a number of celebrities have publically revealed and discussed their own drug addictions.
In the wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman's probably heroin related death, now is not the time to reveal how heroin "kind of saved" you. Or it is if you're Cher's son, Elijah Blue Allman.
Cher's son, Elijah Blue Allman, has discussed his drug use on a televised interview.
The 37-year-old appeared on Entertainment Tonight in order to conduct his first television interview, as E! reports. He discussed his addiction problems and claimed that, at certain times in his life, his dependency was something which "saved" him.
Cher may have been the biggest event of the night.
Last night marked the first live results of The X Factor – and boy, were there some surprises. The biggest event of the night wasn’t even related to Lorna Simpson getting voted off though. Oops, did we spoil that? Not that it matters really, since the talk of the night had to be Cher – the original one – strutting out on stage in all her surgically enhanced glory and knocking out a power ballad or two for the X Factor crowd.
Pop superstar Cher waves and smiles at paparazzi as she escorted out of 'The Late Show With David Letterman' studio in New York to her awaiting car. However, photographers yell that they need a 'clean shot' - one of her posing without a minder - and positively beg her to return for one as she gets into her car.
The legendary entertainer will go on an extensive run across North America for her first tour in eight years
fCher appeared on NBC's Today on Monday (23 Sept.) morning with news of some big plans; a full tour of North America. The iconic entertainer told hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie that she will be undertaking her first full-length tour in eight years, but told the hosts that her trip across America "won't be easy."
Cher also performed some of her new material on Today
"The road is horrible, but the concerts are great," she revealed to Lauer and Guthrie. She added, "I understand why guys in bands tear up hotel rooms and throw TVs out the windows, because it's a very lonely place. The only time you have fun is at the concerts."

The legendary performer took to her Twitter to re-address her comments about Miley Cyrus and her recent behaviour
Cher was forced into defending herself after her recent comments to E! News that she isn't exactly the biggest Miley Cyrus fan in the world, especially after her twerkerific performance at the MTV VMAs last month. The legendary performer took to Twitter to address the controversy surrounding her comments on Wednesday, 18 September, stating that whilst she stands by what she said, she still respects the 'Wrecking Ball' singer as an artists and has nothing but respect for anyone out there "pushing the envelope" like Miley.
Cher has rectified her comments about Cyrus
Having initially said that Miley can "do better" than put on a controversial show at an awards ceremony, Cher told her Twitter followers that she feels "a little ashamed" of letting her opinions get the best of her. Her tweets continued, as she regretted "falling prey" to the prying questions that demanded her opinion, and explained that she is too old have her filter on 24/7. She continued, tweeting, "What I should have said, "I didn't like it that much,but she's Pushing The Envelope,being an ARTIST ! She's Talented,& DIDNT COMMIT A FELONY."
Lady Gaga has released a video promoting her upcoming album Artpop. This coincides with the release of her lyric video for her current single 'Applause'.
Lady GaGa has released a promotional video for her prematurely released single 'Applause'. In true Gaga style the video shows the 27-year-old pop sensation sitting naked in a room, wearing a transparent visor. Although she says nothing, she employs reverse psychology by telling her fans not to buy her 'Applause' single or her upcoming Artpop album.
Lady Gaga outside the Amp Radio studios in L.A.
The video, entitled Lady Gaga is Over - A Film by the Haus of Gaga features subtitles which tell the viewer not to purchase her song or albums. The subtitled video states, whilst Lady Gaga's face is illuminated in a flickering light, that "Lady Gaga is no longer relevant." It continues by saying that she has not been relevant since 'Born this Way' and she is a "flop" and "over." It capitalises "do not" and instructs the viewer not to buy her songs. Furthermore the video tells fans that they should give her no "A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E."

Amanda Bynes attended Manhatten Criminal Court over charges relating to Marijuana possession and an incident in which she, allegedly, threw a bong from the window of a rental building in New York. She appeared wearing a blue wig and casual clothes.
Amanda Bynes was seen attending Manhattan Criminal Court yesterday (9th July).

The incident occurred after Rudy Toro, the manager of the building in which Bynes was staying, complained to police that she had rolled and smoked a joint in the lobby. When police entered her apartment she threw the drug paraphernalia out of the window. She later claimed when questioned that the item was "a vase".
Cher is closely escorted to her limousine as she attempts to leave the Marquee club on 10th Avenue in New York City. She is surrounded by fans and the crowd is so big that it dangerously spills out on the road despite heavy traffic. While Cher attempts to weave her way through, a fan tries to take a photo with her, but she appears to hastily turn away.
Cher is swamped by fans and paparazzi as she arrives for Andy Cohen's 'Watch What Happens Live' in New York City. She attempts to steer them out of the way herself before signing a couple of autographs and entering the building. One concerned photographer repeatedly shouts, 'Guys, don't push her!' The dance superstar is dressed her usual elaborate self in a black and white striped blazer jacket with diamond print and striped pants to match.
Cher attends the Catwalk party at Marquee club in New York where she is showcasing her newest single 'Woman's World'. She is seen clapping and dancing to some of her biggest hits including 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For', 'Half-Breed', 'Gypsies, Tramps And Thieves' and 'Dark Lady', and looks to be particularly enjoying 'Strong Enough', 'If I Could Turn Back Time' and 'Believe' during which she can't help but lip-synch.

Despite her experience, Cher still gets nervous when performing live
Considering she’s one of the foremost fashion and music icons in the world, we doubt very much that Cher is, as she describes herself, “a chicken”. But, talking to The Hollywood Reporter, the 67-year-old admitted how scared she was at taking to the stage for the first time in over a decade.
The legendary singer was performing at The Voice finale, showing off a new track from her upcoming album. "It's the first time I've been onstage or singing live -- the last time I think was with Tina [Turner] and I think that was about five or seven years ago," she explains. "And before that -- I can't even remember the last time I was on TV before that." Needless to say, she belted out Woman's World - off her upcoming album, Closer to the Truth – with the kind of audacity and aplomb that launched her to stardom, but that’s not to say there weren’t any butterflies. "It's very exciting and it makes you feel elated, but it's also kind of scary. And I'm a big chicken anyway," she added.
Closer to the Truth, which will be hitting stores on September 24, is Cher’s first album since 2002's Living Proof. "I actually did a couple of different things in this album," she says. "I ventured into places I haven't gone and I really enjoyed that. I kind of took some chances in this album and then when they turned out to be good, I was really happy."

Cher will make her long-awaited return to live TV during next week's The Voice finale
Cher will make her return to music during the final episode of this season's The Voice, which is due to air on June 18, with the singing legend due to perform her brand new single from her upcoming record. According to network officials at NBC, Cher will perform 'Woman's World' during the season finale of the talent show, after 12 years since she last sang on TV.
The network broke the news on Monday (June 10) that Cher's long-time absence from performing her music on TV is to be broken next week, with the Oscar, Grammy and Emmy-winning singer and actress making her first singing appearance since the 2002 VH1 Divas Las Vegas special. Since then, Cher has mostly concentrated on touring and performing live, occasionally filming small parts for film and television. Between 2003 and 1005, during the 'Living Proof Tour,' Cher performed more than 300 shows across the world, taking a long break from work after.
'Woman's World' is the first single taken from Cher's upcoming album, also called Woman's World, which is set to be release din September this year. The single and album release comes twelve years since her last release - the 2001 album Living Proof - and features producion from Timbaland and songwriting from Pink, Lady Gaga and Jason Derülo. Her new album probably wont be as successful as her last return to music through, when the 1998 single 'Believe' hit the number one spot in charts across the globe and went on to sell more than 20 million copies.

Cher's visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week was definitely a family affair.
Cher stopped by Ellen yesterday to have for a chat about her life, her career and her son Chaz. Not before a quick outfit change for Ellen though, as it turned out she and Cher were wearing the same thing! Ok, they weren’t really, the whole thing was a gag by Ellen to tease her iconic guest’s appearance. On the day before, the talk show host tweeted a digitally altered image of Cher’s body in her infamous sequined bodysuit, but with Ellen’s head, instead of her own, The Daily Mail reports. Ah, the magic of image-altering software! The sailor hat was a nice touch as well.
The gags were set aside during Cher’s actual visit though, as she, her 86-year-old mother 86-year-old mother Georgia Holt and her 61-year-old half-sister Georganne LaPiere talked to Ellen about the coming out story of Cher’s son, Chaz Bono. Apparently Chaz didn’t go the traditional route and instead came out to his grandmother first, with Cher being the last one to find out that her son was gay.
'That's a big deal to come out to the grandmother,' DeGeneres said.

If you think that The X Factor is weird now (what with Rylan’s increasingly bizarre, camp stage productions, a grown man that apparently cannot stop shaking whenever Dermot O’Leary speaks to him and a weekly parade of non-entities, warming up for the one contestant that has anything even vaguely regarding any star quality)… just wait until we get to the final stages. According to The Metro, a heady mix of celebrity singers is being concocted for the final rounds, which may include Cher, Beyonce and The Killers.
If Cher seems like a strange choice, then cast your mind back a few weeks, when Ella Henderson performed a riveting version of the fish-netted wonder’s hit song ‘Believe,’ which had the X Factor judges in a state of rapture. It was such an astonishing transformation, that you almost couldn’t ‘believe’ that it was ‘Believe,’ in the first place. Perhaps the fact that she transformed the song so much suggests that she didn’t really like it in the first place, though? We wonder if the producers have considered that at all? Somehow, the thought of Ella and Cher duetting just feels a little… wrong. The Mirror have previously claimed that Beyonce would be joining Ella onstage. All of this is highly premature, of course, because we don’t even know who’s going to be in the final rounds just yet.
It seems highly unlikely that Ella won’t be in the final of course because – as we just suggested – she’s pretty much the only contestant in the live rounds with any solid, discernible talent. Having said that, though, there’s no accounting for taste, is there? After all, Rylan’s still in with a shot at the title, despite his apparent inability to hold a tune.
By never taking their ludicrous plot seriously, they've made a true guilty pleasure.

To look at the life of Rodney is to look at a near-complete history of several decades of music. A shy kid from a broken home, Rodney left Mountain View, California, for Hollywood in the early 1960s and never really left. Quickly making himself at home on the Sunset Strip scene, Rodney surrounded himself with every kind of celebrity, especially from the music industry. One interviewee after another comments on his Andy Warhol-like blank demeanor that allows the famous and talented to see reflections of themselves. But there is also an eternally childlike innocence to him that was quickly picked up on: Cher, who practically adopted Rodney for a time with Sonny, talks about how you could just tell that Rodney never wanted anything from you, just to be there and absorb the glittery experience was enough. There's a sense of a kid trying to make up for his own fractured past with a famous family, and also just looking for someone to take care of him.

When Walt Tenor (Greg Kinnear) decides he wants to become an actor, he tries to convince his twin brother Bob (Matt Damon) -- his conjoined twin brother -- to move out to Hollywood with him by saying, "You could be my stunt double!"
Yes folks, "Stuck On You" is another cheeky comedy of good humor and questionable taste from the Farrelly Brothers ("Kingpin," "There's Something About Mary" and "Shallow Hal"), and yes, folks, they get a surprising amount of mileage out of jokes like that one -- rim-shot-quality punchlines given winkingly ironic sparkle by the wily writing-directing team's laughing-with-not-laughing-at sensibilities.
There's the scene in which Walt walks his shy sibling over to a pretty blonde in a bar, then takes over the seduction himself when Bob blows it -- and ends up bringing the girl home (Bob tries to ignore their moaning from the other side of a makeshift curtain). There's Walt's "one-man" stage show about Truman Capote, in which Bob tries to slouch as inconspicuously as possible behind Walt's back.
