Cher Disappointed by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Snub

Cher Disappointed by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Snub: Cher is speaking out about being excluded from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The music icon, appearing on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” on Friday, expressed her frustration with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s voting committee, stating that they can “go you-know-what themselves.”

“You know what, even if they offered me a million dollars, I wouldn’t join now,” she conveyed to host Kelly Clarkson. “My stance is not going to change.” Clarkson expressed her disbelief as the audience gasped. “Wait, are you serious?” the “Stronger” singer inquired. “I’m not kidding you,” Cher replied.

The September 2023 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony featured inductees Kate Bush, Sheryl Crow, Missy Elliott, George Michael, Willie Nelson, Rage Against the Machine, and The Spinners. Although it was the first nomination for Crow and Nelson this year, they have been eligible since 2018 and the ’80s, respectively. Elliott was the sole act to be inducted in her first year of eligibility. Clarkson previously mentioned how the 77-year-old singer recently achieved a historic milestone.

“DJ Play a Christmas Song,” featured on Cher’s most recent album, “Christmas,” claimed the top spot on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart last week. This achievement signifies that the music legend has now secured a No. 1 record in each of the last seven decades.

Cher and The Rolling Stones stand as the only two artists to achieve this milestone. However, as the “Believe” singer humorously noted, “It took four of them to be one of me.” Cher went on to highlight additional accolades, including the success of her best-selling single, which ranks among the biggest-selling singles ever.

“I revolutionized music with ‘Believe,'” she asserted.

Clarkson remarked that, similar to the hit 1998 track, “DJ Play a Christmas Song” embodies the quintessential Cher “vibe,” emphasizing, “No one has that sound.”

Cher unveiled her inaugural Christmas album in October. The album’s lead single, “DJ Play a Christmas Song,” made its debut this week on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs chart, marking the singer’s inaugural appearance on the chart, as reported by Forbes. Furthermore, the single secured Cher her first top 10 placement on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.
