Only one music video has been made for the album, a so-so one for first single 'Woman's World', and that was finally delivered three months after the single's release. In that time, a bizarre reading of the song's lyrics from author Jackie Collins was released on YouTube as supposed promotion. 'Woman's World' did get a (brilliant) lyric video though - on time, as well - as did follow-up single 'I Hope You Find It'. However, third single 'Take It Like A Man' didn't even get that. No, instead, the massively under-promoted single was given a poorly-received (described as "embarrassing" and "soft-core" by some fans) video consisting of advertisements for Andrew Christian underwear.
Cher saw a negative review of 'Take It Like A Man', which seemingly took shots at the song's confusing video. Moments ago, she tweeted, "I've just seen a mean 'Take It Like A Man' review. The video had nothing to do with me. I was told that it would only be shown in gay bars."
She added, "It's true that Warner Bros. hasn't got a great deal of interest in my CD. Not all - there are hard-working adorable people - but decision-makers don't seem to care that much. It's Okay, you haven't seen the last of me."
One fan responded, "It's not okay, because you deserve the best! ...So we won't see more videos for the album? No more promo stuff?" Cher answered, "I'm proud of my work, so, if you love your CD, then I did my job!"
The music videos - or lack of - are far from the only criticisms of Warner Bros. Record's handling of the album. Other concerns include: one that commercial releases of remixes for the predominantly-dance-pop album's singles have been few and far-between: and another that there has been little-to-no promotion for the album since November (Cher week on 'Dancing With The Stars') except an un-promoted UK single release of 'I Walk Alone'.
It's not all doom and gloom though as 'Closer To The Truth' will surpass sales of 300,000 in the United Sates in the next few weeks and is expected to be certified Silver in the United Kingdom in the near future. It gave Cher her highest solo Billboard 200 debut and single 'I Hope You Find It' made her the oldest woman to score a UK Top 30 single. And of course, Cher will begin touring for the album from 22 March on her 'Dressed To Kill Tour'. "The new songs kick major a** in the show", she tweeted.
Cher concluded, "Some Warner Bros. people are special to me."
- 'Take It Like A Man' has fallen to #13 (from #3) on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart.
- Cher tweeted that a photoshoot for her 'Dressed To Kill Tour' tour book will take place on 24 February: "I'm looking for interesting Cher graphic looks for new tour book! Have photoshoot on the 24th".
