115 Best Cher Quotes from the Diva and Goddess of Pop

Cher born Cherilyn Sarkisian on May 20, 1946 is a legendary pop diva whose career, spanning over 50 years, has won her Grammy, Emmy and Academy Awards.

With record sales exceeding 100 million, Cher has continuously topped Billboard charts from the 1960s to 2010s.

Her early years were filled with uncertainty, moving frequently due to her mother’s several remarriages.


Cher dropped out of school at 16 and moved to Los Angeles, eventually meeting Sonny Bono, who helped launch her music career.

Despite her personal life’s turbulence, including divorces from Sonny Bono and Greg Allman and relationships with several younger men, Cher remained an icon of female independence in the male-dominated music and film industries.
