Cher Remembers Sonny’s Birthday, Albeit Late in the Day


Today was Sonny Bono’s birthday. How do I know? Cher Tweeted him a Happy Birthday message this evening, around 6pm Pacific, 9pm Eastern. Okay, it was late in the day and maybe she just remembered. Her “Happy Birthday Son” Tweet was confusing since technically, Cher has two sons– Elijah Blue and Chaz, who was born Chastity. Oh well. What would a Freudian shrink make of all that? Son/Sonny — and she has two sons. And one wasn’t born a son. A cowboy’s work is never done!
