It's been a long while since my last round-up of incredible '80s singles that failed to hit the U.S. Top 40 (on the Billboard Hot 100), so I thought I'd do an addendum!

My Original List of 50 '80s Singles That Didn't Go Top 40 — Here!

Since then, Huffington Post wrote the exact same item as I did (with many of the same tracks highlighted), so hopefully this sequel (and future ones) will distinguish itself from lists already in existence.

Let me know of any that come to mind when you ponder the question of '80s singles that bombed, but shouldn'ta ...

Cher's Left Boob For President! Comments (0)

Cher's spirited performances of “Believe” and “If I Could Turn Back Time” were among the highlights of Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards, along with her frank acceptance speech.

Not wild about her warmly mentioning the heinous Phil Spector, but otherwise, she won the night.

Watch her speech after the jump ...

Cher: I'M NOT A CHER FAN Comments (0)

I've always said I don't think of Cher as a musical artist because she seems so detached from her work in that field, and her new interview with Billboard bears out my theory:

In the ’70s, her Hollywood friends -- Geffen, Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, Joni Mitchell — were making great art; Cher felt ashamed of her songs. She wanted to sound like Bob Seger, Bruce Springsteen, Mitchell or, especially, the Eagles. Anything but Cher. “I’m not a Cher fan,” says Cher. “I just don’t think my aesthetic taste lies in her direction.”

... Cher knows and accepts what people want from her. “My idea, every night before I go onstage, is that this is a gift I was given, and can give to people. While they’re watching my show, they don’t have to think of anything else. It’s something that makes people feel good. That’s all I do -- make people feel good.”

Great stuff on her Twitter, her disdain for Trump and her refreshingly candid approach to aging — she hates it! (Most stars pretend they love it.) She remains best at giving interviews — and being Cher.

How Cher, 40, Almost Lost THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK For Being TOO OLD Comments (0)

Cher, currently on a mini-tour, was caught on video (thank you, Carlos!) telling the story of how she reluctantly appeared on David Letterman's show that time when she famously called him an asshole. Shockingly, she admits she was paid $28K for the appearance, which she demanded in order to satisfy a hotel bill.

This was all around her 40th birthday, which was well and truly ruined when George Miller, the director of The Witches of Eastwick (1987) called and said:

I don't want you — Jack Nicholson thinks that you're not very sexy and you're too old.

Cher herself clarified this story, tweeting me:

She wrapped her story by saying,:

But now, this is this, okay? I'm 70 — what's your grandma doing tonight?

Keep reading to watch the video and hear and see a snippet of Cher's show ...
