Let’s Talk About Cher in London…

For all the folks who have been following the cat fight in the comments section on our post on Vincent Gallo (who sold an apartment at the Sierra Towers to Cher), Your Mama would like to shed some light. We are not taking sides, but rather trying to clear up an issue that has, quite frankly, been cluttering up our inbox with email.

Your Mama had no idea whether Cher owned a home in London or not. Never even thought about it to be honest. But apparently the issue is important to a fair number of people and the bickering, name calling, and verbal fist fighting on the issue have been fierce and unnerving.

Your Mama did a little online research and quickly came up with three references to the penthouse apartment Cher reportedly has long owned in the Canary Wharf/Isle of Dogs area of London.

For those of you that care, you can check out the three links: one, two, three.

Since some of you have noted that you can’t see the photo that is referenced as and interior shot of Cher’s London penthouse…there it is above, small as it may be.

P.S. We love East London!

    its actually really funny that there was even a debate about this! being a completely obsessed cher fan for a very long time, its common knowledge (among fans, at least!) that she has a home in london. i don’t expect everyone to know this, of course, but a simple online search quite obviously cleared up the mystery. how silly that people would argue. just do a little research if you’re that interested!

    Oops, I meant to say Cher does not have a home in London WORTH MENTIONING. Whew. Almost slipped myself there :p

    Oh you naughty troublemaker you. You’re not supposed to use that name in a comment, she’s not the one who flooded Mama with emails, and Cher does not have a home in London.

    Get with the program, ok?

    The dining area does have an English pub feel to it. Wish the picture was bigger and wish there were more. The building’s really cool, and being right on the Thames River like that rocks. I mean, could you get any closer? lol Wonder if she keeps a boat moored nearby.

    Thanks for the building linky anonymous.

    WooHoo.. I did a little sleuthing and found a nice big exterior shot of Cher’s building. It’s called Oliver’s Wharf and is an ex-riverside warehouse that was converted to flats. You can see it here:

    Seems this is Cher’s take on industrial loft living :)

    I’m not disputing anything [god forbid!] … I was merely demonstrating that it’s an unusual area for a huge celebrity to reside … Nothing more, nothing less … So please keep me out of anymore disputes & don’t mention me by my screename b/c I really can’t be bothered – Finito!

    Thankyou Mama! Cher’s place looks a bit rustic and not what I would have expected. It looks more like a restaurant than a home, don’t you think?

    Why the hell would people e-mail? It is rather childish – if you don’t want to read the comments don’t click on the comments link – geez! so after all that she does actually have an apartment in the docklands … I find it rather weird b/c that area is primarily corporate offices with several newer apartment towers / lofts aimed more at those who work in the large finanancial corporations that make up Canary Wharf rather than an A list hollywood celebrity … The whole area pretty much shuts down in the evening & at weekends compared to your typical celebrity areas in north & west London … I just cannot think of any reason why someone would want to live in that area, surrounded by many not so nice neighbourhoods that is typical of east London unless of course they work for credit suisse, deutsche bank, hsbc etc etc & want to walk to work rather than spend ages on the tube …

    anyway, thanks mama for providing some sort of proof [pic] that she indeed has an apt in east London … thankfully this topic can be layed to rest now b/c it became boring & ridiculous days ago & i’m actually ashamed that i got caught up in such trivial, infantile, behaviour …

    Well dang. One link says “Cher’s longtime pad (pictured above)” but all I get is a red X in a small box where it’s supposed to be.

    How childish for people to be emailing you about this Mama. I was aware that she’s in London alot and always assumed she had a place there like alot of other stars do. Thanks for clearing the air.
