Cher Opens Up About Motherhood, Destiny, Fame and Her Name in a 1999 Lost Interview

In the latest episode of the animated lost interview series “Blank on Blank“, the legendary performer Cher opened up about being a mother, fame, her destined relationship with Sonny Bono and how she got her name.

Oh, yeah. I’ve been “Cher” for a long time. Yeah, all my papers, my passport, my driver’s license. I never really felt my maiden name. I never really felt any last name ever in my life. I was always just “Cher,” so I just went and petitioned the court. What you have to prove is that you are absolutely recognizable to everyone by that one name.
