During a recent interview with Architectural Digest well-known singer Cher identified herself as a Buddhist—one “who should always be in after-school detention.”:

“I’ve played around with Buddhism for years,” continues the actress, a devotee of the American Buddhist nun Pema Chödrön (“a genius in Sheldon Leonard’s body,” she quips). “As corny as it sounds, the soul of the universe, everything that I need, I can find in its practice.”
