Cher's Nearly Naked, Eye-Popping Pasties Costume - Hot Or Not?

Cher's Nearly Naked, Eye-Popping Pasties Costume - Hot Or Not?
It's almost impossible to believe that Cher is 67 years old. The singer performed at TD Garden in Boston, Mass., on Thursday wearing a skimpy stage costume that would be salacious on a woman 40 years her junior.

Cher donned a "dress" made of strands of gems that dripped down her arms and thighs. Her chest was completely bare except for a pair of red, heart-shaped pasties. Pushing 70? She certainly doesn't look like it!

The star's longtime costume designer, Bob Mackie, withdrew from her current tour due to other commitments. Hugh Durant, a British designer she previously worked with in 200...

A day after Cher blasted Miley Cyrus over her MTV Video Music Awards peformance, the aging singer says she regrets some of the comments she made and should have kept her "big opinionated mouth shut".

The 67-year-old singer criticized Miley's racy performance, saying it could've been "better" if she had focused on giving a flawless performance instead of shock value.

Fashion Fails: Kendall Jenner Has Her Eye On You, Cher Goes Tina Turner, More

It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Kendall Jenner tried to rock this glitzy top, but all it did was freak us out with that all-seeing eye. The high-waisted paints were a little too much for us, as well.

Tinie Tempah is trying a bit too hard with his too-short pants, shiny shoes, and cow-turtle shirt. He'd fit right in with the rest of the hipsters, though.

Khloe Kardashian is looking better than ever, but this shirt is confusing us. Is it a butterfly wing? ...

You Must See These Terrible Album Covers!

March 5th, 2013 6:59pm EST
Are These The Worst Album Covers Of All Time?
Some singers and musicians just don't have much talent when it comes to having an eye for artwork.

Most of the time an album cover has a lot to do with sales, so imagery that's interesting, sexy, mysterious, etc., is always a good thing.

Take Miley Cyrus's 2013 release, "Bangerz", for example. The peach-to-purple color mix with two photographs of houseplants with a superimposed miley staring blankly at the camera looks more like something out of "Miami Vice" circa 1984 than a modern pop record. Throw in the neon "Bangerz" sign and it now looks like a newspaper promo for a south Florida st...
