Hell hath no fury like a diva scorned: Cher is on the warpath about the fact that her long-awaited new album won't be out until the fall.
When a fan tweeted the pop legend on Thursday, saying they were "99% sure @cher 's new album will not be released in March" -- as had previously been announced -- the singer went on a Twitter rant, writing, "I’m sure it won’t Either! Single in June cd in Sept! There!! Freak! Leave!! hold your fkng breath till u turn Blue !"
For some reason, Cher then continued to heap abuse on the fan, Twitter-yelling , "If U think ANYONE HAS COMPLETE CONTROL OVER THEIR LIFE, U NEED 2 GROW THE FK UP. AS A MATTER OF FACT, YOUR DISAPPOINTMENT PALES IN COMPARISON 2 MINE. RECORD CO Wants 2 put it out AFTER SUMMER ! SHOOT ME."
Another fan then inquired about the duet with Lady Gaga that's on Cher's album, writing , "So, if the GaGa duet is still on the CD, the song is going to be about 2 years old?" An incensed Cher replied, "That makes it 64 yrs younger than me ! Your Point ? Old things have No Value ? Or…?? YOU HAVE NO VISION OR MAGIC."
When another fan chimed in that they had no idea that Cher was 66, she Twitter-bellowed , "I AM OLDER THAN FIRE,& TWICE AS HOT !!!"
She then addressed all her fans , saying, "Argue amongst yourselves about how lame, fkd up this release date is, how disappointed you are & THEN STEP INTO THIGH HIGH’S!!! There should b a TEAR RUNNING DOWN YOUR CHEEK ! I have songs, Im proud of, but Must wait, before I can SING! U Think UR Sad ?"
Earlier this month, Cher spoke about how excited about the album she is, but explained that it was her perfectionism that was holding up the project.
She tweeted , "Please be cool, I Believe you'll think it’s worth it ! Ya see … as I’ve been recording song writers r coming Up with amazing Songs! As an artist whose last release was 11Yrs ago I want 2 sing my heart Out! Some think I haven’t sung because I no longer Can..Its is why I’ve taken So Long..I want it 2B perfect."
