Those of us obsessed with Hollywood probably think we know everything about our favorite stars, old and new.

Ultimately, the diagnosis hasn’t slowed the singer down, although she was forced to take a break for several years while figuring out how to manage her symptoms. Cher is still touring, still singing, and still making her fans happy.
