Washington: Cher laughed off rumours of her death and assured fans that she is very much alive and kicking. False news of the pop star’s death hit Twitter on Friday and the prank managed to fool a number of celebrity fans including socialite Kim Kardashian.
“Did I just hear Cher has passed away? Is this real? Omg (oh my God)... I hope this is a Twitter joke and not true. I don’t see it on the news anywhere. I’m praying its (sic) not true...,” a website has quoted her as tweeting.
The rumours soon reached Cher herself and the singer was so amused by the story, she even joked on the social networking site about writing a song called Rip for her new album.
“Well here I am Tweeting from the HereAfter! It’s very blue up here & thank God they gave me a view of the sea, palm trees and a Balinese house... Lovelies,” she said.
“I’m not going anywhere till i finish this fkng (sic) album! The only Rip I know how 2 (sic) do is ‘Rip it up! Kick a** and take no prisoners!... Just had great idea... I’m going to ask (my songwriter) to write a song 4 (sic) album!” she added.
