For the last 56 years, Cher has been a powerhouse in the music industry. She first came into the spotlight as one half of the folk-rock duo, Sonny & Cher. But she isn\u2019t a one-show woman, she simultaneously launched her solo career and it has stood the test of time. Editors Note: Today, May 20th, 2019 is Cher's 73rd Birthday!\u00a0\r\n\r\nOver the years, Cher has become known for being outspoken when it comes to her personal beliefs. She once even said that men are like dessert. She didn\u2019t mince her words either, she explicitly said that she believes men are not a necessity.\r\n\r\n\r\nCher And Oprah Winfrey 1991\r\nWhile sitting down with Oprah Winfrey in 1991, Cher got real about being herself. Oprah wanted to know how long the singer has lived her life with the motto \u201cit\u2019s nobody\u2019s business but mine.\u201d If you know her personality, then you know she\u2019s always lived that way.\r\n\r\nCher said: \u201cWell, I think girls especially, we\u2019re supposed to be nice, but being nice means do what people say to do. I don\u2019t think you can be really nice. I\u2019m a much nicer person now.\u201d\r\n\r\nThis really is so true. Nice should not mean that you have to do just what someone else wants of you. Or as Oprah suggests, compromising yourself just to fit into that nice label.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nOprah was able to relate to Cher\u2019s sentiment, saying that once she accepted she wasn\u2019t nice, she was able to get on with her life. Cher agreed and even suggested that nice is boring. She is right \u2013 doing everything that other people want isn\u2019t an exciting life to live.\r\n\r\nIn fact, she is right to point out what a general, unenthusiastic description nice is when used in reference to a person\u2019s personality.\r\n\r\nCher said: \u201cThere\u2019s are lots of things I\u2019d like to be and nice just doesn\u2019t seem good enough.\u201d\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nInstead, she\u2019d rather be known for her thoughtfulness. She once said that she would go to the ends of the earth if someone needed her. She wanted to be known for loving her children and being there for them. That is very important to her.\r\n\r\nYou can see all of Cher\u2019s words of wisdom in the video below.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=t0d3kCEsrkU\r\nIf you liked this article, please SHARE it on Facebook with your friends and family today!
