It was recently announced CherMadonna.pngthat Cher will be performing in Vegas as a regular act (so much for "farewell", huh?) and Madonna is releasing her latest "reinvention" album.

So here's the question, Projectors: Who would win in a Celebrity Deathmatch Cage Fight and why?

Who are you placing your bets on: her Madge-esty or the Bob Mackey-clad plastic queen? Fighters to your corners!!

Madonna all the way. She still has a bit of ghetto in her, even if she speaks with an English accent now. She would shank Cher in a heartbeat.

I have to go with Madonna. She has had more lives than a herd of cats, has biceps that would make any muscle boy hide in embarrassment and is ruthless in pursuit of her goals.

Cher may be around with the cockroaches after we blow ourselves up with nuclear weapons, but Madonna will still be around to kick her ass.

Cher - hands down.

You think she's been around this long by playing Pollyanna? Madonna might be able to take her down in a fair fight, but no one said Cher would fight fair. She'd brain Madonna with one of those high heel boots.

I am glad this post is lighter. Bil overlooked two important additional factors on Cher's side: Iron make up, and proud Native American battle heritage.

Right event, wrong players.

Babs could still blow them both off the stage in one deep breath.

Madonna hands down. Cher would be weighed down wearing a Bob Mackie creation of feathers and beads.

I go with Cher, because I'm sure Chastity Bono would get involved and destroy Madge. Who's got Madonna's back... Guy Ritchie? I could kick his ass.

Plus, Cher is so pulled and tucked, she probably feels no pain.

This is only the semi-finals, AJ. Don't get ahead of yourself. Whipping out Babs is the nuclear option.

I find this post to be more than a little sexist and demeaning of women. Cher and Madonna have both made their contributions in this world and even if they had not they do not deserve to be used in this way for your amusement. Perhaps there are more affirming ways to celebrate their longevity and the pleasure they have brought to many through the years.

Cher enough said !

Dear Beloved,

Will all the Cher, Madonna, Judy Garland and Elvis drag impersonators please stand up? They are being demeaning of someone! Or are they just worshiping an Idol. I took my comment from Cher's own statement that the fifteen minutes it used to take to do her stage makeup has morphed into three hours. Oops, the doorbell, I hope it's Barbara's next album.

Cher, obviously. She is proto-human.

I have to agree with Waymon, Cher is so constructed she's like the bionic woman now...

and Madonna is like barely five feet tall. Biceps or not, Cher has all the fake body parts to throw at her.

and Beloved? It's sunday morning. The sun is out (here). life is short. Talking about women being powerful and kicking ass isn't sexist.

take a deep breath, give the fight for righteousness a rest today and put a bet on one!

Good comeback Sara!

Beloved, while I admire your knee jerk reaction to defend women's honor, I think you need to take this pot with the spirit in which it was intended - all good fun. Not all jokes that involve women are sexist. Now if the joke had been "what do you tell a woman with two black eyes? Nothing. You already told her twice," THAT would be sexist.

I stand by Madonna. Cher might be a proto-human, but Madonna is like the Borg. Who's to say she wouldn't morph into a Robo Rockstar and kick Cher into the next millenium?

Serena my Dear,

Old Age and Treachery always defeat Youth and morphing! ;^)

Sorry to be so "righteous" everyone, but I do not find it "fun" for a man to propose a fantasy in which two "caged" women do violence to one another in a "deathmatch" for the entertainment of himself and others. My bad.

To all you poor misguided souls who chose Cher over Madonna,

I am going to light a votive candle in hopes that once The Material One obliterates Cher she will take mercy on you.

Dearly "beloved": Do you remember the bitch-fights on Dynasty between Joan Collins and Linda Evans? First the all-out pillow fight, then the one where they threw each other into the fountain. Did fantastic things for both women's careers.

I think we are doing this thread more in the spirit of a Saturday morning cartoon than an honest-to-real-life fight to the death.

Try to chill out just a bit, no one's going to actually get hurt.

Cher has been around longer and has given more work than madonna. You all need to go to youtube and type cher a&e biography, that will tell you how big of a star cher is. they even say cher is better than madonna for many reasons. just look at the video and then comment.

cher would win, theres no question about it. shes been around alot longer. and when it comes to comparing them in entertainment, cher is your winner. shes got a grammy, an academy award for best actress and an emmy. shes the only woman to have top 10 hits every decade since the 60s. and when it comes down to it, madonna?-Cher? well, cher has the strongest and more powerful voice. Cher has the much much better acting talents, and has re-invented herself more surprising and entertaining than madonna. madonna is good, but shouldnt be compared to Cher.

There's no question about this- Cher is so much more talanted than Madonna, and so much more beautiful too. Cher wins... She has a real powerful voice, unlike Madonna whose vocals are not that impresive. Not to mention that Cher has a ton more class and talent

cher hands down!! could blow madonna's head off with her powerful voice madonna wouldent stand a chance with her puny little voice. madonna's probably better known by younger people because shes been around more lately.
