Cher: I don't like my music

Cher is not impressed with any of her pop hits from the 1970s.

The iconic singer released a number of hit tracks, such as Gypsys (sic), Tramps & Thieves, Dark Lady, and Half-Breed, during the disco era, but she was ashamed of her work.

Cher admits she wanted to sound like the Eagles or Joni Mitchell and when she was around her famous musician friends at the time, she hid her head in shame over her pop tunes.

Im not a Cher fan, the 70-year-old tells Billboard. I just dont think my aesthetic taste lies in her direction.

The star also has little respect for her 1995 album Its A Mans World, dubbing the record a piece of crap.

That's OK Cher..... most of us feel the same way about your music too.

Well that's unfortunate. She should have played the damn music she wanted to.

Re: Cher: I don't like my music

Cher should never have compared herself to the likes of "The Eagles or Joni Mitchell"; they wrote their own songs.
If she had hung around with Linda Ronstadt for a few years instead of Sonny Bono, she may have been happier with her music.
They were both south-western girls, after all.

Anyway, for someone not at all pleased with the music she has made an extremely good living with, Cher certainly has a lot to be proud of:

From Wikipedia: Cher has won a Grammy Award, an Emmy Award, an Academy Award, three Golden Globe Awards, a Cannes Film Festival Award,
and a special CFDA Fashion Award, among several other honors.
Throughout her career, she has sold 100 million records worldwide, becoming one of the best-selling music artists in the music history.
She is the only artist to date to have a number-one single on a Billboard chart in each decade from the 1960s to the 2010s.


Besides, I love "Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves" and "Dark Lady", even if Cher does not.

And I'm not a fan, either... just a listener who can appreciate a good song.

While Cher's pop hits were actually quite good relative to most other singles being played on Top 40 radio at the time, her solo work was certainly a big comedown from the folk rock she did as a part of Sonny & Cher originally.

Pretty much this. Her recent albums are just plain trash.

Cher meets Muscle Shoals, producing a not-bad covers album, 3614 Jackson Highway. This is an excellent photo montage video of that period:
