CherIn promoting her latest flick “Burlesque,” musical icon Cher is back in the spotlight — walking the red carpet and talking green living.

Cher spoke with Fox News about the government’s role in protecting the earth. “I think people would do a lot more if the government put out a list, saying ‘this could do this’ etc. The government isn’t very helpful. People are willing to do all they could if they just knew what to do.”

One thing Cher isn’t willing to do is scoot around Malibu in a Prius. “I researched all the hybrid stuff and it’s pretty much all bulls**t,” the 64-year old singer said. While she didn’t go into detail about her disdain of hybrid vehicles (or the sources of her research), she did explain how she gets all green.  “I turn off the lights, we don’t use plastic bags. We’re probably not doing enough, but we started changing the bulbs to those curly bulbs.” (Translation: curly bulbs = compact fluorescent bulbs)

But why limit your eco-friendly ways to your home, Cher? If you plan another “comeback” or “farewell” tour, think about ditching backstage water bottles or trading in the leather chaps for a more animal-friendly alternative. I bet our Ecorazzi readers could think of other green ideas so that you don’t have to rely on the government to have your performances rock it eco-style.
