Cher Stars in ‘Burlesque’ and Confronts Her Age (NYTimes)

It’s surprising, yes, but also sensible, and a window into a central secret of Cher’s success. For all her audacity (the envelope-pushing outfits, the tabloid-chum affairs) she has always been acutely conscious of limits — at least her own.

Although her span of hit singles stretches all the way from “I Got You Babe” in 1965 through “Song for the Lonely” in 2002, Cher has never taken that astonishing durability as license to explore any genre (Broadway musicals say, or jazz standards) that tickled her fancy.
