Cher credits luck for her lengthy career

— Cher is no stranger to tabloid fodder.

The 67-year-old singer who has spent most of her life in the spotlight offered this advice to young artists on navigating the world of paparazzi attention: “You don’t deal with it. You just try to get a place where no one can find you and that’s your little sanctuary,” said the singer.

Cher took the stage Tuesday for the season finale of NBC’s “The Voice.” She performed “Woman’s World,” the first single off her upcoming album of the same name — her 26th album since she began recording in the 1960s.

Cher said reality singing competitions are simply a modern incarnation of classic star-makers like “The Ed Sullivan Show” and “Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts.”

“Talent is talent,” she said on the red carpet following the finale that crowned 16-year-old country singer Danielle Bradbery the winner.

The young powerhouse from Blake Shelton’s team beat out rocker Michelle Chamuel and country duo the Swon Brothers for the season four title.

Though Cher has topped the Billboard pop charts throughout the last six decades, she credits luck for her incredible staying power.

Arias TV movie airs Saturday on Lifetime

PHOENIX — A made-for-television movie on Jodi Arias is scheduled to air this weekend.

“Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret” is set to be shown Saturday on Lifetime, but the movie won’t be about the trial.

Screenwriter Richard Blaney wrote the script with Gregory Small. Blaney said the project was in the works more than a year ago. He says they completed the script in December.

That was the same month that Arias’ televised trial started in the brutal 2008 slaying of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, a Mesa motivational speaker.
