It’s Impossible to Get Close to Cher at Her Record Release Party

“Closer to the Truth” is Cher’s 26th studio album, and her first in more than a decade. Songs from the Warner Bros. Records album filled the lounge, along with Robin Thicke and Rihanna hits, as drag queens and skintight-shorts-wearing men danced on a platform overlooking the crowd.

After a false alarm with a Cher impersonator descending the stairway, fooling many guests — this reporter included (from across the cavernous room she looked just like her!) — the real Cher arrived midway through the party, appearing relaxed in a sparkly jacket.

Cher was hounded by partygoers, which included fans who had been invited to attend. The result was a relentless push-with-your-elbows-out situation where guests snapped photographs relentlessly. Those who got near enough greeted Cher with kisses and hugs.

“I’m thrilled to be here, even though I’ve been up since four-f——thirty!” Cher told the crowd from the DJ booth. “I mean a girl has got to get up later than that.”

After about 20 minutes of more photos and gladhanding around the room, including a meet-and-greet with the drag queens, Cher made her way toward the exit. She was off to hit more nightclubs and smartphone-clutching fans.
