Cher shares her thoughts about Madonna, 65, after a resurfaced interview shows her calling the Queen of Pop out for her “rude” behavior.
In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, 77-year-old Cher, was shown an old video of her calling Madonna “mean.”
The video of the interview from 1991 was resurfaced as part of Madonna’s 40th anniversary Celebration Tour. Back then, the “After All” singer openly admitted that, while she held a deep respect for Madonna, there was a certain quality about her that didn’t quite sit right with her.
“She’s mean, I don’t like that,” Cher said.
She then went on to describe a situation in which the Queen of Pop was allegedly “rude to everybody” at her home. At the time, Madonna was married to Sean Penn.
“I remember having her over at my house a couple of times because Sean and I were friends, and she just was so rude to everybody.
“It seems to me that she’s got so much that she doesn’t have to act the way that she acts, like a spoiled brat all the time,” Cher said. “It seems to me when you reach the kind of acclaim that she’s reached and can do whatever you wanna do, you should be a little more magnanimous and be a little less of a c***.”
In another interview, the “Dark Lady” singer was asked if she was aware that Madonna was using the old footage during her Celebration tour.
“I said a lot worse than that,” Cher responded, before clarifying that everything was just fine between them.
“I actually like her. But come on,” she added.
When asked if “come on” meant that she stood by her 1991 statement that Madonna is “mean,” Cher replied:
“She can be. We buried that hatchet a long time ago because I called her something so much worse, and she forgave me. But I give her this: There’s no one like her that had their ear to the ground and knew everything before anybody else. I mean, she knew what was coming, and she was right on it. I always felt that was her greatest gift – that she could know the trends before any of us.”
This all comes shortly after Cher was accused of organizing a kidnapping plot that involved her estranged son. She has yet to comment about such events as more and more details unfold.
Still, we’re not entirely sure what the purpose of rekindling the video was for the tour, but we are glad to hear that the rivalry between Cher and Madonna is a thing of the past.
