21 times Cher kept it real on Twitter.

She speaks her mind so amazingly. And her emoji mastery is truly something to behold.

You can count on her to see things from a unique perspective.

GIF from "Live! with Kelly and Michael."

Turning back time, getting you babe, believing in life after love ... she's got it covered. She's CHER!

When I saw Cher's trill-to-the-max post about an incident of police brutality at Spring Valley High School ...



Original.

... I knew I needed to see more.

So I went on a magical journey into the best tweets Cher — the icon, the singer, the mom, the advocate, the Bob Mackie dream, the best Twitter user ever — has to offer.

If you're not ready to keep it 100 with Cher, this post is not for you. For the rest of the 99.9% of the world ... let's get started.

1. If you don't expect a unique perspective from Cher, she'll straight up TELL YOU what to expect from her.


Original.

Fk it.

2. Best use of emojis to fight modern slavery, achieved.

Original.

3. Did I mention solidarity with teens? It's a hard time, and she's here to say "I've been there." Plus: bonus awkward photo.

Original.

4. And a passionate call to the American government to take some responsibility for the problem of mental health, guns, and mass shootings.

Original.

5. Afraid to call out the tragic racism shown in the Oscar-winning film "Glory"? Not Cher.

Original.

She asks the questions we all ask internally but are too awkward to say aloud. Cher, on the other hand, hasn't been awkward since age 13.

6. Cher reminds you that health is also about self love. <3

Original.

7. Again with the realness, and the real questions this time are about the refugee crisis.

Original.

With straightforward questions like these, I'm ready for her to moderate presidential debates!

And Olympic ceremonies.

Or my life.

8. She's not just generous in spirit either.

Original.

9. And she's a supportive mom-4-life to her son Chaz and his stage acting career.

Original.

Way before there was Caitlin Jenner, there was Chaz Bono. And Cher, of course, was nothing but supportive and amazing.

10. She's only human in the face of delicious fried fast food ... and only from time to time!

Original.

11. She once referred Nestlé as "the SeaWorld of water." That is all.

Original.

12. She basically said, "What's good?" to all the critics of Harper Lee, too.

Original.

13. Cher doesn't sugarcoat when it comes to anyone resorting to violence to keep young girls from their education.

Original.

14. Cher is my Twitter dream for her use of "SeaWorld" as an insult in so many different contexts.

Original.

15. True empathy through tragedy and an unwavering faith in the goodness of people? Check.

Original.

If you're starting to think, "I would like to get all my news, good and bad, from Cher," I am right there with you.

16. TREES

Original.

Cher speaks for the trees.

17. She has profound love and empathy for Joe Biden and respects him as he would want to be respected ... for his love of family.

Original.

18. She values expanding her vocabulary.

Original.

19. Cher realizes what it means to be a citizen.

Original.

Even after an emotionally harrowing viewing of the presidential debates.

20. Sometimes you need an emoji-laden reminder to relax.

Original.

Throughout my odyssey into Cher's tweets, I've found myself puzzled by the meaning of the ghost emoji. Cher continues to mystify and inspire curiosity!

21. And finally, I'd like to say that Cher does a mean TBT.

No word on whether that's the village people or some other magical music group. Original.

An amazing and rare moment of nonchalance. <3

This list just scratches the surface of the real talk magic that is Cher on Twitter.

You can (and should) follow her on Twitter. She responds with emoji truth to pretty much every current event you hear about, plus so much more.

I love seeing anyone, but especially celebs, being themselves to a fault, speaking their minds, and fighting not just for their own voice, but for the voices of those who can't fight for themselves.

Cher has never tried to fit in, and she's not stopping now! If only more Twitters were like this!

I'm sharing this in the hope it inspires even just one person to speak their mind a little louder, be a little bolder, and show just a little more of their true self!

Long live ALL the outspoken Twitter Chers of the world.

Putting your pet in cargo during a flight isn't always safe. In 2016, the Department of Transportation reported a total of 26 pet deaths and 22 injuries on flights. Because conditions in cargo can be uncomfortable for animals, the Humane Society recommends taking your pet aboard when you fly, or just leaving it at home.

It's not surprising that one Russian man didn't want to put his overweight cat in cargo during an eight-hour flight from Moscow to Vladivostok. What is surprising is the great lengths he took to fly with his four-legged friend.

Russian airline Aeroflot allows pets to fly inside the plane's cabin, as long as the cat weighs under 17.6 pounds and stays in its carrier during the flight. When Mikhail Galin went to check in, he was told he couldn't fly with his four-year old cat, Viktor. Viktor weighed in at 22 pounds and would have to be relegated to cargo.

But Viktor was sick from their earlier flight from Riga, Latvia to Moscow. And besides, Viktor had been allowed to fly inside the cabin during that flight. The airline staff didn't even bother to make Viktor sit on the scales. Galin was unable to persuade staff to bring his fur baby on board.

"To all attempts to explain that the cat won't survive there on an 8-hour flight with the baggage and would haunt her in her nightmares for the rest of her life, she (the Aeroflot staff member) replied that there are rules," Galin wrote in a Facebook post translated from Russian.

Newborn babies don't seem to do much beyond eating and pooping and, of course, hiccupping. A lot. Parenting advice on how to cure a baby's hiccups runs the whole gamut. It's recommended parents try everything from nursing to stop feeding the baby so much, from giving the baby gripe water to letting the hiccups play their course. But when your baby hiccups too much, you shouldn't freak out. There's a good reason why.

A new study published in Clinical Neurophysiology found that hiccups play an important role in a baby's development. Researchers from the University College London found 217 babies for their study, but only looked at 13 newborns with persistent hiccups. Ten of those babies hiccupped when they were awake, and three hiccupped during their "wriggly" sleep. We have no idea how the scientists got any work done with all that cuteness lying around.

Ask almost any woman about a time a man said or did something sexually inappropriate to them, and she'll have a story or four to tell. According to a survey NPR published last year, 81% of women report having experienced sexual harassment, with verbal harassment being the most common. (By contrast, 43% of men report being sexually harassed. Naturally harassment toward anyone of any sex or gender is not okay, but women have been putting up with this ish unchecked for centuries.)

One form of verbal sexual harassment is the all too common sexist or sexual "joke." Ha ha ha, I'm going to say something explicit or demeaning about you and then we can all laugh about how hilarious it is. And I'll probably get away with it because you'll be too embarrassed to say anything, and if you do you'll be accused of being overly sensitive. Ha! Won't that be a hoot?
