Yes, Cher fans now know that the queen of pop is not dead. However, there was a frightening Twitter trend of “RIP Cher” that had her millions of fans terrified. Someone who has yet to be identified thought it would be amusing to get the rumor mill spinning in Cher’s direction, and it caught on quickly. Even some celebs fail for the hoax and were openly mourning.
Cher took to her Twitter account, @Cher, to address the rumors in a light-hearted way. She stated, “Well here I am tweeting from the HereAfter! It’s very blue up here & thank God they gave me a view of the sea, palm trees & a Balinese house.” She also proceeded to promise that she isn’t going anywhere until she finishes her new album and also that she may include a song referencing the experience on the album.
Cher is the lone victim of a death hoax. There’s a circle of celebrities who have been subjected to false rumors of their demise, including Paul McCartney, Rihanna, and Jon Bon Jovi. Also, since the rumors of Cher's passing started, there have also been new rumors of other celeb death, including that of Perez Hilton who was honored to be in the category with Cher.
Meanwhile, Cher has been her jovial self updating Twitter with all kinds of posts. She jokes with some fans. In response to a fan who was seemingly very much longing for her attention and begging for a reply in all caps on the premise that it would be the fan’s dream come true, Cher replied for her to pick up her big girl panties. It’s that kind of irreverent but loving sense of humor that Cher is known for. We hope to share it with her for centuries longer so no more death hoaxes please!
