Anthony Kiedis & Cher:
Adventures in Babysitting
Anthony Kiedis’s father was an actor and drug dealer who was a well-connected member of LA’s Sunset Strip scene. Kiedis’s godfather was Sonny Bono, and one night the teenage Kiedis was being babysat by Bono’s wife Cher. With Anthony Kiedis being Anthony Kiedis, it was inevitable there would be nakedness at some point. “I was in bed and Cher got up to go to the bathroom and get ready for bed. I watched her take off her clothes. I remember thinking, “This is not bad,” he reminisced. Cher then joined him in bed, but nature did not take its course and they fell asleep. “After all, we were friends,” he argued.
