Over the weekend, Billboard shared their very in-depth interview with Cher who has officially spent 50 years on the Billboard charts.
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Cher’s debut on Billboard’s charts, Billboard spoke to the woman herself. In their lengthy chat, they talked about her frustration of doing “poppy” songs in the early 1970s, how David Geffen “wasn’t that interested” in her musical comeback in the 1980s (on his own label!), and how an act of “desperation” led to the famed vocoder sound of “Believe.”

Cher also talks about her “hope” of heading back on tour, and her tentative plans of recording new music.
