Cher Slams Rock Hall: “I wouldn’t be in it now if they gave me a million dollars — they can go do you know what to themselves”


“They can go you know what themselves,” Cher tells Kelly Clarkson today on her show.

That’s what Cher says about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “I wouldn’t be in it now if they gave me a million dollars.”

She’s right. She’s one of at least three dozen acts that should have been inducted years ago. Cher has been a star for almost 60 years, with dozens of hits, sold out tours, and a massive following.

Rock and roll? She sang on Phil Spector’s records before she and Sonny Bono had their own hits. I know John Sykes can fix this. Jann Wenner created this problem.
