An evening pause: From a performance during the 1970s the Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour.

Hat tip Danae. As she notes, this was when Cher “still seemed semi-normal.” Without doubt, she could sing, and act. Too bad in later years she stopped focusing on where her best talents lay.


One comment

  • “semi-normal” may be an accurate description.

    Of course . . . there was much less media, no cell phones, and no Internet to track our every waking hour that allowed the world to peer “Behind the Black,” so to speak.

    In that sense, “semi-normal” might be quite charitable.
