MISTAKEN IDENTITY: HEY THAT’S CHER, NOT PETE BURNS!
Cher was perplexed, not insulted, recently when she was shopping in Harrods with her assistant and someone mistook her for another singer – Pete Burns. (She was in London promoting Burlesque) Pete, as our readers know, was lead singer of the 80’s pop band Dead or Alive (“You Spin Me Round”) but since then has become addicted to plastic surgery. When she was mistaken for Pete, Cher laughingly turned to her assistant and said “Who IS this guy? Is he famous? It’s happening a lot.” Presumably by now she has figured out who Pete is, and is no longer laughing.
