Book Review

Cher Me This …

It's a new biography, man.

Review by
Most people know about Cher from her illustrious music career. Hits like “I Got You Babe” and “The Beat Goes On,” with her former husband and music partner Sonny Bono, put her in the public eye. But her solo hits “If I Could Turn Back Time” and “Believe”—which, I'll admit, was a personal obsession of mine as a child—are what catapulted her to iconic status.
