The singer and actress has so much to be proud of. From her beginning as part of the pop rock duo Sonny & Cher, to becoming a television personality on her own variety show, to her acclaimed roles in films like Mask and Moonstruck, Cher is definitely a triple threat. She’s also had quite the love life — she’s been linked to everyone from Elvis Presley to Richie Sambora. Today Cher turns 66 years old, and we decided to turn back time and take a look at how she’s held onto that flawless physique and radiant beauty (with a little help from her surgeon friends) through the years.
The 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards went down on Saturday night at at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in L.A. Lovely ladies like Kat Graham, Ali Larter and Milla Jovovich attended. Larter looked tiny in a ruched red Zac Posen dress while Jovovich was draped in vintage Halston. Kat nailed it in a strapless black gown by Indian designer duo Alpana Neeraj. Grand dames like Betty White made an appearance too. She walked the red carpet with Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves — her co-stars on Hot in Cleveland.
Cher and Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack presented the Stephen F. Kolzak Award to Chaz Bono for making a significant difference in promoting equality. We also love that Josh Hutcherson got the Vanguard Award for the LGBT ally organization he co-founded called Straight But Not Narrow. The award was presented to him by Benicio del Toro, no less. Have a look for yourselves at all the very evident camaraderie between the stars in the gallery below.
With all the controversy surrounding transgender contestant, Chaz Bono, the proverbial show went on. Dancing With The Stars‘ 13th season premiered last night and debuted with a cha-cha! Shaking and shimmying to Dancing in The Street, the dancing was a bit rough, but top marks for fun and enthusiasm, right? Chaz has put aside all the hating coming in from all sides about him being transgender, which could not have been easy. A lot of people have wanted him ousted from the show.
The judges were somewhat encouraging, with Carrie Ann Inaba exclaiming, “You can dance!” and Len Goodman pointing out his “good footwork and great attitude.” Still, scores were on the low side with the pair getting two 6′s and one 5. Do you agree?
