With her Icon Award, Cher's got you, babe.

She’s as much a part of Malibu as the sand and sea, with decades of hit songs — beginning with her Sonny and Cher days, memorable movie roles, outrageous outfits and more. Even though these days A — listers tend to play it safe, you could always count on Cher to not only walk the red carpet but to own it.

Even at the ripe old age of 71, she hasn’t lost her flamboyant taste and out — of — this — world, look — at — me style.

She turned up at the Billboard Award show in her classic “If I Could Turn Back Time” garb, a vision in mesh and sequins and leather, with hair out to here. She looked the same as when the chart topper came out more than 20 years ago.

The quirky and talented songbird was there to receive this year’s Icon Award. 

The multi — award winner was appreciative of the honor, saying, “I wanted to do what I do since I was four years old,” proving that if you “believe,” anything is possible.

Also on the awards front, Drake score a record breaking 13 honors including top artist.

Songbird Nicki Minaj opened the show with a nine — minute performance and Celine Dion moved music lovers to their feet with an emotional performance of “My Heart Will Go On.”

The song has become a standard ever since Malbu’s James Cameron hit an iceberg and box office gold with “Titanic.”

Hard to believe that two decades have gone by since Leo was a little known actor and Dion was just warming up. Funny how one little movie can make monumental career and change the face of Hollywood. 

 

THE FORCE IS WITH THEM

Cinematic history will be written on the stars as when the George Lucas Museum of Narrative Art gets ready for an intergalactic debut. Lucas brought us iconic cinematic blockbusters like the Star Wars series. He’s is the man with a plan, along with his wife Mellody Hobson. 

San Francisco and Chicago were also in the running to host the museum but, in the end, Los Angeles came out on top.

Ma Yansong of MAD Architects will design the out — of — this — world space, which is set to open in 2021. 

Hollywood’s newest hotspot will feature art and memorabilia from the mega director’s personal collection, including “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones.”

It will give film buffs another reason to visit Exposition Park. Lucas has a film degree from nearby USC. The cultural landmark is expected to break ground later this year. 

The price tag? A whopping $1 billion. Now that’s out of his world!
