Bette Midler and Cher were quite something at the Billboard Music Awards the other night.

Midler, blonde, bodacious and eternally outrageous, performed her rowdy “One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show,” with the Royal Crown Revue, and Cher looking incredibly beautiful, merely presented, but received a rousing standing ovation.  Cher, who knows what’s up and what’s down in the biz cracked, “you know you’ve been around a long time when they stand up.” Read More
