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.

A new Gallup poll found a significant increase in the number of Americans who identify as LGBT since the last time it conducted a similar poll in 2017.

The poll found that 5.6% of U.S. adults identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. That's a large increase from the 2017 poll that had the number at 4.5%.

"More than half of LGBT adults (54.6%) identify as bisexual. About a quarter (24.5%) say they are gay, with 11.7% identifying as lesbian and 11.3% as transgender. An additional 3.3% volunteer another non-heterosexual preference or term to describe their sexual orientation, such as queer or same-gender-loving," the poll says.

After years of service as a military nurse in the naval Marine Corps, Los Angeles, California-resident Rhonda Jackson became one of the 37,000 retired veterans in the U.S. who are currently experiencing homelessness — roughly eight percent of the entire homeless population.

"I was living in a one-bedroom apartment with no heat for two years," Jackson said. "The Department of Veterans Affairs was doing everything they could to help but I was not in a good situation."

One day in 2019, Jackson felt a sudden sense of hope for a better living arrangement when she caught wind of the ongoing construction of Veteran's Village in Carson, California — a 51-unit affordable housing development with one, two and three-bedroom apartments and supportive services to residents through a partnership with U.S.VETS.

Her feelings of hope quickly blossomed into a vision for her future when she learned that Veteran's Village was taking applications for residents to move in later that year after construction was complete.

"I was entered into a lottery and I just said to myself, 'Okay, this is going to work out,'" Jackson said. "The next thing I knew, I had won the lottery — in more ways than one."

As the nation helplessly watches our highest halls of government toss justice to the wind, a 2nd grader has given us someplace to channel our frustrations. In a hilarious video rant, a youngster named Taylor shared a story that has folks ready to go to the mat for her and her beloved, pink, perfect attendance pencil.

It's amazing to consider just how quickly the world has changed over the past 11 months. If you were to have told someone in February 2020 that the entire country would be on some form of lockdown, nearly everyone would be wearing a mask, and half a million people were going to die due to a virus, no one would have believed you.

Yet, here we are.

PPE masks were the last thing on Leah Holland of Georgetown, Kentucky's mind on March 4, 2020, when she got a tattoo inspired by the words of a close friend.
