If I Could Turn Back Time......Happy Birthday Cher

Just in case you need a bit of random trivia today, or if you find yourself in conversation with any Gypsies, Tramps, or Thieves.....

MrMartha would like to note that CHER is turning 62. Born Cherilyn Sarkisian on May 20, 1946. She became a 60's pop sensation at age seventeen, a 70's television fixture, and into the 80s and beyond -- an Academy Award winning Actress, official Diva, and all around Icon.

In addition to the Oscar, Cher has also won a Grammy, an Emmy, several Golden Globes, and, lest we forget, a Peoples Choice Award. Not to mention being incarnated in doll form by Mego (1976) and Mattel (2000 to present) both with Bob Mackie designed wardrobes.

Cher is also the only solo female recording artist to have records chart in the Billboard Top 100 in each of the past four decades.

Topics for conversation:
How many total sequins has Cher worn over her career?
How old would she be in Bob Mackie years?
