Your Favorite Pop Stars (Apparently) Love a Good Fishnet Stocking

And we can all thank Cher for that.

Cher and Piers Morgan, who has got to learn to form an opinion, once got into it on Twitter over fishnets. Yes, fighting over fishnets is an actual thing they did.

It started when Piers said that Madonna—of all people—shouldn’t wear such revealing things as fishnets at her age. Perez Hilton alerted Cher to the quote via Twitter, and welp, you know how great Cher is at doing Twitter. The exchange between Cher, Piers and Perez eventually gave way to this outstanding tweet on Cher’s behalf that shut all of it down, saving fishnets and the divas that wear them forever.

Moral of the story: Piers Morgan is dumb, Cher rules and so do fishnets. That’s why your favorite pop stars love sporting them. And why wouldn’t they? If you were up on a stage with hot spotlights following you around as you dance and sing, wouldn’t you want your legs to be tight, but still able to breathe? Yes. Yes you would.

From Beyonce to Gwen Stefani to Ke$ha, these pop divas love a good fishnet.
