I [Still] Got You, Babe: Cher Claims Contact with Sonny Bono’s Ghost
Cher ain’t afraid of no ghost – especially not that of her ex-husband, Sonny Bono, who passed away following a tragic skiing accident in 1998.
In fact, she told fans during a question and answer session on the website Reddit.com this past weekend that she still has regular contact with him.
“I love ghosts,” the Goddess of Pop exclaimed when she was asked if the paranormal freaked her out. “I actually think that Sonny makes a light go on. I have a beautiful chandelier that he makes the light go on when it is impossible; there is no power on. I love ghosts, I prefer ghosts to some people.”
Far be it from us to suggest that a few crossed electrical wires could be the culprit, rather than her “I Got You, Babe” duet partner. After all, Cher’s hardly the only celeb to claim a ghost sighting.
For example, you’d think the only thing haunting pop star Miley Cyrus is her association with the term “twerking” (Cher has had something to say about that too), but she, in fact, had some spooky sightings while staying in a London flat a few years ago. You can also add the likes of Lady Gaga, Nicolas Cage, and others to the list of stars who’ve experienced ghostly encounters.
Okay, maybe it’s not fair to include Nicolas Cage on that list. After all, he is (allegedly) a vampire.
