Last night, during the live broadcast of this year’s Billboard Music Awards, Cher received a special Artist Achievement award for her long career. During her acceptance speech, she mentions that she has also had many ruthless critics of her of her entire career. She also says that she’s still around, unlike many of these critics, and she tops it off by saying this, which wasn’t bleeped out in time, “Well, fu** ’em!”. This was met by thunderous screams and applause from the audience, and dismay by censors, as they failed to edit that bit out despite the time delay. She goes on to thank her fans, and Sonny Bono for her success, and ends her speech.
