CHER Says NYET To Performing at the 2014 Sochi Olympics In Russia

In an interview with Macleans, Cher lets it be known that she got an invitation to perform in Russia at the Sochi Games and turned it down FLAT:

I can’t name names but my friend called who is a big oligarch over there, and asked me if I’d like to be an ambassador for the Olympics and open the show. I immediately said no. I want to know why all of this gay hate just exploded over there. He said the Russian people don’t feel the way the government does.

YOU GO GURL!

At least SOMEONE has some integrity.  *cough* athletes *cough*
