father's problemsEdit

I don't see the relevance of her father's drug and gambling problems. If this was his biography maybe.--159.2.46.127 (talk) 22:33, 27 December 2019 (UTC)

OccupationEdit

In the occupation section it should say that she is a director since she directed “If These Walls Could Talk” Jessicasliwoski (talk) 22:04, 10 April 2020 (UTC)

Here We Go Again TourEdit

In the section "2018–present", it states Cher's current tour will end on May 6, 2020. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the end date has been rescheduled to December 5, 2020. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.213.238.206 (talk) 17:09, 29 April 2020 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 16 June 2020Edit

On occupation it should say that she’s a director because she directed If These Walls Could Talk. 174.131.34.97 (talk) 03:50, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

  Not done: Because she directed a movie once doesn't make her notable for that. The list was way too long anyway so I trimmed it. RandomCanadian (talk / contribs) 03:50, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

lede paragraph sourcesEdit

I noticed the lede paragraph doesnt have any citations for some of the statements, I personally have never heard auto tune being called the cher effect. Thoughts on lack of citations?Eruditess (talk) 22:50, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

The lede paragraph is supposed to be a summary of the article. All of the statements in the lede are further discussed and referenced in the article. Right now, this article has exactly 396 citations, so a "lack of citations" doesn't really seem to be a problem. Lordelliott (talk) 00:44, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
Quite right, the lead section should ideally be a summary of well-referenced article body text. No references are required if that's the case, and if there are no huge arguments about content.
Regarding autotune, I'm an audio engineer and I've definitely heard it called the Cher effect. Also the T-Pain effect. This article confirms the phrase "Cher effect", down in the gray box "Historical Footnote" signed by Matt Bell. Binksternet (talk) 05:02, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
