Cher’s new video for her ABBA cover of “SOS” is out. It’s pretty nice, and a social message about suicide prevention and support among women directed by Jake Wilson. But she’s not in it.
I’m told once the video was finished, Warner Music asked to have Cher included and they shot some footage to try and include her. Somewhere out there a version like this exists. But Cher really didn’t want to appear in it, to leave the video’s message pure and not involve a celebrity.
Still, there is one celebrity in “SOS.” That’s actress and singer Rumer Willis, in blonde curls, as part of the ensemble. Rumer has a great voice, but this time she left the singing to Cher.
