Oh man -- Cher isn't just the Queen of Everlasting Pop Music, she's the Queen of Backtracking, too, guys. Remember how she made those catty remarks about Miley Cyrus and how her body "looked like hell" (what a snot!) and how gross her tongue was (truth)? No? Oh, OK:
"I'm not old-fashioned. She could have come out naked, and if she'd just rocked the house, I would have said, 'You go, girl.' It just wasn't done well. She can't dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn't great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don't stick out your tongue if it's coated. If you're going to go that far, then think about it before you do it."
Right. Well, after that, she apologized for being a jerk, and NOW, she's flat-out praising Miley and sort of pushing Sinead O'Connor's valid point about the sexual objectification of women. This:
"Sinead O'Connor has a very different sense of herself than Miley Cyrus, so I don't think it's as dire as people are warning. Women have always been sex objects and that's nothing new. They always will be. ... Also, she's trying to break the Disney stuff. When you make such an image, you have to hit it with a hammer ... or a sledgehammer!"
So, Cher, just because you feel that women have "always" been "sex objects" doesn't mean that they should be -- and especially if they don't want to be. Yeah, you didn't come out and say that Sinead was wrong -- because she's not -- but just being complacent about the idea that not all ladies are all right with being objectified just because they're hot -- or not -- is just as bad as the act of objectifying itself.
In short, this is probably not a fight that Cher wants to start. Or finish. Or even really be involved with in any way, shape, or form, because she just doesn't get it on a greater level.
