Nowadays, the Goddess of Pop claims that she is living a much more private lifestyle, and is far more aware of what she wants to reveal to the media. She has been quoted as saying that “privacy is worth diamonds”.
Luckily, today she is far more in control of the narrative and the rumors around her and seems to have found her perfect combination of performing and releasing albums while maintaining a fairly balanced and peaceful life.
The Black Sheep of the Family
Elijah has since told reporters in various interviews that he feels like he was always the black sheep of the family. It’s no surprise either, considering the fact that his father had a serious drug problem and that his mother sent him to boarding school when he was just eight years old.
Elijah also feels that his brother Chaz isn’t really his friend anymore. He claims that his mother didn’t even take the time to invite him to her Christmas celebrations last year, which frankly is kind of heartbreaking.
No Signs of Life
The rock star son claims that his mother barely even reacted to his news when he got married. There is clearly a lot of bad waters between the two.
So far there is only one person that he can recall actually reaching out and being positive about his new marriage to Mariangela King. This person is his grandmother, Georgia Holt, Cher’s mother. Elijah claims that she sent him a warm congratulations letter, which he was happy to receive.
A Positive Outlook
Despite having what seems to be a terrible relationship with his mother, Elijah still chooses to look on the bright side. When asked about his mother and what he thought about her, the young rock star said “I mean, she’s Cher. What’s not to love?”.
He also seemed very forgiving over their lack of communication, chalking it up to the various ups and downs that parents and children eventually go through in life. He hopes that Cher will reach out and try to reconnect their relationship, although nothing is certain at this point, and we’re not holding our breath.
Still Rocking It
Despite being more than 70 years old, Cher is still as energetic and vibrant as she’d always been. The singer is healthy and claims to feel great. She spends most of her time touring and creating new music, as-well as trying out new outrageous outfits to wear in her various shows. Cher also seems to have great genes, as she barely shows any signs of aging. Her mother passed away at 93 years of age, which means that if genetics have any say in the matter, Cher has a good chance of being active for a few more decades.
Cher has since returned to acting when she appeared in the popular musical comedy film Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, where she played as Ruby Sheridan, Sophie's grandmother. Her role in the film was highly beloved by both fans and critics. The New York magazine said about her that it's only at the climax of the movie when its true promise was fulfilled: Cher arrives ... It becomes clear that every single movie—no matter how flawless—would be infinitely better if it included Cher." We couldn’t agree more.
