Cher’s Not Heartbroken Over Split With Ex-Boyfriend

Cher isn’t heartbroken about splitting from Tim Medvetz.

The ‘Believe’ singer started dating former Hell’s Angel – who is 24 years her junior – in 2008 but ”isn’t grieving ” since dumping him.

The 67-year-old star told Attitude Magazine: ”The one who does the breaking doesn’t do the grieving.”

Cher claims one man she truly loved was Robert Camilletti, whom she dated in the 80s.

The press dubbed Robert ”bagel boy” because he worked in a bagel store but Cher claimed the ”sex was great” and he was perfect.

She added: ”There was drama in the end but it had nothing to do with him and me. It was just that the paparazzi ruined our lives completely.

”There were two of them that were following us and we got a restraining order against them.”

The iconic singer hasn’t ruled out falling in love again and wants a man who is kind but not too smart, because they can end up being ”too into themselves.”

Cher’s first album of original material in more than a decade, ‘Closer to the Truth’, is out now.

Cher Not Ready To Retire

Cher can’t imagine retiring any time soon.

The 67-year-old singer has been at the forefront of the music industry for the past 50 years, but despite rumours her new album ‘Closer To The Truth’ could be her last, she insists she still hasn’t reached the limit of her ambitions.

Quizzed whether she would release another record, Cher said: ”I guess it depends on what happens with this one. I won’t be doing this forever for sure but I do have dreams to fulfill that I haven’t even dreamt yet. There’s no end to idea and things you want to do.”

In 2003, Cher embarked on a ‘Farewell’ tour, but she is going back on the road next year because she feels the time is right.

She explained: ”I really thought it was [my last tour]. It didn’t seem like I had anything else to say. But I really like this album and if I don’t do it now, I’ll never do it. Even though its 11 years since my last record, I’ve been doing it for 50 years, so it feels natural.”

Cher Earns Highest-Charting Solo Album Ever on Billboard 200

“Believe” it: Cher has earned her highest-charting solo album ever on the Billboard 200.

The diva’s new studio album, “Closer to the Truth,” also logs her highest debut ever (solo or otherwise) with its arrival at No. 3. It sold 63,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The Warner Bros. Records effort is her first album since 2002’s “Living Proof.”

Until this week, Cher had never gone higher than No. 4 with her solo albums — reaching that peak with both “Believe” in 1999 and “The Very Best of Cher” in 2003. As half of Sonny & Cher, she only went higher once — with 1965’s No. 2-peaking “Look at Us.” The album — which contained the No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 single “I Got You Babe” — was stuck in the runner-up slot for eight weeks behind the Beatles’ “Help!”

During the new album’s release week, Cher played NBC’s “Today” show (Sept. 23) and “The Late Show With David Letterman” (Sept. 24). On the latter program, she was the only guest for the evening and also performed the album’s second single, “I Hope You Find It.”

“Closer to the Truth” was led by the single “Woman’s World,” which becameCher’s eighth No. 1 on the Dance Club/Play Songs chart in August.

Cher Credits Success and Longevity To To Luck

Cher credits her longevity to a simple notion: luck.

“I really believe it’s luck,” she said in a new sit-down interview with CBS News’ Edward Lawrence. “I think it’s luck. It doesn’t make any sense that it’s not. I think you have to be lucky because I do what I do and it’s all well and good but it’s not rocket science. It’s just something. I believe it’s 50 percent luck.”

That “luck” Cher speaks of continues as she readies her new album, “Closer to the Truth,” due Sept. 24. The set marks the singer’s 26th solo album and her first since 2002’s “Living Proof.”

Armed with “great songs,” Cher said there’s not one track she doesn’t like on the album, which features a guest appearance by Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters.

Will Life Imitate Art For Cher’s New Album?

Cher is hoping life will imitate art. For the cover of her 26th album, Cher has gone platinum. Blonde that it. Maybe it foretells of things to come and the record will go platinum too. Cher hasn’t put out new studio album in over 10 years. Cher’s new album, which is called “Closer to the Truth,” will be released at the end September.

Cher has been releasing chart-topping music since the 1960s. First as part of the power couple Sonny and Cher, which also spawned a TV variety show. The “Sonny and Cher Show” ran until the couple divorced. And then it ran again because it was too popular not to run even if the couple weren’t together.

Cher doesn’t always listen to her own music. She said “Truthfully, I’m not a huge Cher fan and I’ve said this many times, but I think this is the best album I’ve ever done.” More here>>

Cher On Her Long Awaited Return To The Stage: I’m a Chicken!"

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.”
