Cher is an American singer and actress whose career spans five decades, and is called the "Goddess of Pop." She's been wildly successful in all areas of the entertainment world that she's decided to tackle, and has never been afraid of a fashion risk.

Cher was first known for her music with husband Sonny, and the duo was known as "Sonny and Cher." Though the pair rose quickly to stardom, they also began to fall until they gained recognition through their television appearances. The first show, called "The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour," brought them back into the spotlight.

Cher was always adventurous with her style, and became a fashion trendsetter thanks to her daring outfits. In the early '80s, she made her debut on Broadway and later her debut in film. She was nominated for best supporting actress for her first film, "Silkwood," and later awarded the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in "Moonstruck."

Cher, who turns 67 on May 20, 2013, is the only recording artist to have a #1 single on the Billboard charts for each of the last six decades. She is one of the best selling music artist of all time, and a force to be reckoned with.
