Bien por Cher

Se niega a actuar en Rusia:

Cher claims to have rejected an invitation to perform at the Sochi Winter Olympics. Although she was asked to participate in February’s official opening ceremonies, the singer said she “immediately” refused out of solidarity with Russia‘s gay community.

Speaking with the Canadian magazine Maclean’s, Cher recounted receiving a call from a friend “who is a big [Russian oligarch]”. “[He] asked me if I’d like to be an ambassador for the Olympics and open the show,” she said. “I immediately said no. I want to know why all of this gay hate just exploded over there. He said the Russian people don’t feel the way the government does.”
