Cher has announced on Twitter that she is working on writing and starring in an autobiographical Broadway show. "Prods. R writing mucial [sic] now about my life with my music," reads the initial post, revealing that the musical will track three different versions of Cher throughout the singer's life. "I'm help.2 write cause i was there & know stories that no1 knows but me," she follows. Cher's character will appear as a young singer through the Sonny and Cher era, then as a solo artist from the late Seventies through her Believe tour in 1999, and finally as a present-day incarnation looking back on her life, career and earlier versions of herself.

No further casting or creative team members have been revealed, and no timeline has been given. Although Cher has won at least one Oscar, Emmy and Grammy, she has yet to win a Tony Award.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
