Cher Shrugs Off Rock Hall Of Fame: Look + Listen

On Thursday (12.14,), Cher stopped by The Kelly Clarkson Show to promote her current Christmas single and album.

Raking the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame over the coals, the iconic singer confirmed that she’s only the second singer to have #1 charting songs in seven decades after the Rolling Stones, stating:

“It took four of them to be one of me.” “And I’m not in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!” “I’m not kidding you.” “I was about to say shitting you! You know what, I wouldn’t be in it now if they gave me a million dollars … I’m never going to change my mind. They can just go you-know-what themselves.” “Also, can I just say one other thing? I changed music forever with ‘Believe’” (referring to the song’s use of autotune in music production.)

Born Cherilyn Sarkisian, the now 77-year old’s visit to Kelly Clarkson is concurrent with her “DJ Play a Christmas Song,” single topping Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales Chart. The legendary songstress’ first-ever holiday album Christmas was released in October and features such songs as “Home” with Michael Bublé and “Drop Top Sleigh Ride” with Tyga. 

Cher’s comments concerning the Rock Hall snub come several weeks after Kate Bush, Sheryl crow, Missy Elliot, George Michael, and Willie Nelson were among the inductees at a ceremony last month.
