Cher Reveals Why She Thinks Joe Biden Will Make a Good President

Cher is revealing why she believes Joe Biden will make a good president if he wins against Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

“I like Joe. I’ve known Joe for a long, long, long time. I had a meeting once with him and I thought, ‘You know what? This is an honest man.’ It was way before he was with Barack Obama. We had a conversation and he was so painfully honest. At the end of it, I said, ‘You know, Joe? You can trust me, I’m taking things to my grave, but if I ask you a question and you answer it so honestly, you’re safe with me,’” Cher told Billboard.

Cher continued, “Then I saw the pictures in his office and I said, ‘Oh my God, such beautiful children and your wife is so pretty’ — and it was his wife and daughter who had died. I was like, ‘O.K. Cher. Insert foot in mouth.’ But he was just so great about it. You know, everybody’s got faults, but at least he has a soul and he understands pain. He’s also been a politician for a gazillion years. I think he still has got it or I wouldn’t vote. I’m actually registered as an independent. It means I don’t agree with everybody, but in the final analysis, you have to vote for the one side you hate the least.”

Kim Kardashian Opens Up About Discrimination & Changing the System

Kim Kardashian gets a ’60s-inspired makeover on her new cover for Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book Issue 16, which hits newsstands March 12!

Cher and Naomi Campbell are also featured on their own covers.

Here’s what the 39-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, the 73-year-old singer, and the 49-year-old model had to share with the mag:

Cher on being the pioneer of the “first name only” trend: “I never really thought of it as a power thing…One day I just realized, ‘I’m Cher. I don’t need anything else.’”

Kim on how being a mom inspired her prison reform work: “My evolution on this is probably some combination of growing up, getting married, having kids, and my life being so different than what it was when I was starting out. Now, I feel like I have a duty to myself and to my children more than the public and I want to be a good role model for my kids. I’m raising four black kids in this society and our system is so discriminatory against black and brown people. I want to do as much as I can to make their lives easier…I never knew much about the system until I started to dig in, and once I learned and saw how many things were wrong, I really couldn’t stop.”

Kim on why she lobbied Donald Trump to grant freedom for Alice Marie Johnson:Alice [Marie Johnson] is a mother of five and has siblings. I thought maybe Ivanka Trump would understand. Through Ivanka and her husband, Jared, I was able to connect with the president. Everyone told me I would ruin my career if I went to the White House, but that doesn’t mean anything to me. My reputation over someone’s life? That didn’t make any sense. People talk s–t all day long: I felt confident that I could handle a news story that would cycle for a day or a week, tops. But the chance to change someone’s life? Backing out was not an option for me.”

Naomi on what first inspired her philanthropic work:Ray [Petri] was one of the first people I knew with AIDS. What struck me the most about his sickness, especially the end of it, was how poorly others treated him. Since then, I’ve been a supporter of AIDS research and finding a cure. It’s something I’m still fight for today. It’s been nearly two and a half decades. I do believe that there is a cure.”
