It’s rare that Gwen Stefani is upstaged. But the chanteuse didn’t stand a chance when she presented the Icon Award to Cher on Sunday night at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. No one was looking at the blonde in a gold frock, when they could goggle at the 71-year-old in an outfit that’s best described as a sheer black body-stocking with strategically placed sequins, plus vast Brian May wig and leather jacket.

But then Cher once declared, “Until you’re ready to look foolish, you’ll never have the possibility of being great.”

You can’t say she doesn’t walk that particular sartorial tightrope in superb fashion. She modelled two eye-popping outfits on Sunday, both of which seemed fashioned from a couple of pairs of 10-denier tights and a jar of rhinestones.

Keen followers of pop history noted the sheer black outfit she wore to sing If I could Turn Back Time was wittily modelled on an ensemble first seen on Cher in 1989.

Although lovers of Liberace-style spectacle might reckon the silver-spangled scrap of nothing she wore first, accessorised with one puce heart-shaped nipple pastie (left breast), was even more show-stopping; not to mention the platinum-blonde, Cleopatra-styled wig.

Only the hardest hearted would deny the fact: age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety performances. True, for a minute I was put in mind of Cristal Connors in Paul Verhoeven’s cult classic movie Showgirls, who says snarkily to her understudy, “I’m getting’ a little too old for that whorey look.”

While Piers Morgan may have expressed disdain from the safety of the Good Morning Britain sofa at her sartorial choices, it’s almost impossible to deem someone ridiculous if they’ve already made it clear they don’t give two pins about dignity and age-appropriate attire.

Perhaps the most appealing thing about Cher is that she never seems to be billing herself as a sex goddess. Unlike that other great stayer Madonna, who at 58 years-old always appears grimly determined to project a vision of her own yoga-taut hotness to the public.

Cher is the ultimate vaudeville hoofer, embracing camp excess as her joyful birth-right. There’s a Mardi Gras sensibility to her performances, which makes you want to shed your own years, leap onstage and shimmy alongside her. It’s no coincidence this performance took place in Vegas, where more is never enough and vulgarity’s a virtue.

Furthermore, most women will know how the pop star feels about trotting out old outfits. When a mature female can still model ensembles she first wore aged 20 or 30, then she absolutely wants the whole world to know about it. If Princess Anne can perform public duties in outfits from the 1980s and pass this off as parsimony (when surely it’s a subtle form of boasting about her ageless figure?), well why can’t Cher recycle her old Spandex?

And, frankly, if she can do a “five-minute plank” – as she boasted when handed her award – then she’s rewriting the laws of nature and can tear up the rule book as she pleases.

When you look at this great survivor of the 1960s, you don’t see mutton dressed as lamb, you see Cher dressed as Cher.

Cher still believes in finding love, as ET found out in a recent sit-down with the superstar, but the lucky guy to court her has to have certain qualities.

“It takes kind of a special person,” the 70-year-old music icon tells ET’s Nancy O’Dell. “There are few people. It kind of cuts the herd down, because people are a little bit frightened about being Mr. Cher. It takes a certain kind of guy.”  Republican or Democrat?

Whoever that “certain kind of guy” turns out to be would have to contend with Cher’s busy schedule and forceful political opinions. Five decades into her career, the singer is still in high demand with a residency at the Park Theater at the Monte Carlo in Las Vegas and shows later this month.

At an age where most people think about retirement, Cher seems far from finished, which might be a trait that runs in her family.

“[My mom] says if you don’t pay attention to age, it won’t pay attention to you, but I think that’s the dumbest thing I ever heard,” Cher says. “But there’s not much you can do about it. You just do your best.”

Her “Classic Cher” show features a dazzling display of wigs and 11 costume changes that show off her amazing figure. The GRAMMY winner told us there’s no big secret to keeping in shape. She just stays in the gym.

“It doesn’t happen by accident,” she says. “I’m in the gym probably five days a week.”

While Cher has control over her body, there are some things she just can’t do for herself. The mother of two sons (Chaz, 47, and Elijah, 40) admitted that she would like to have grandchildren.

“Nobody seems to be coming up with them!” she jokes.

Cher, who is known for her one-of-a-kind outfits, closed our interview by giving us a peek at a pair of boots no one had ever seen before. The shoes were created for her show by famed designer Christian Louboutin.

“I just said, ‘Make them in a bunch of colors and about a million girls would love these!'” she says.

Cher’s residency at the MGM National Harbor in the Washington, D.C. area begins March 17, and she’s returning to the Monte Carlo in Las Vegas on May 3. Tickets for her 18 new dates added for the fall in Las Vegas are on sale Saturday.

High rollers and gamblers rejoice! Cher has extended her casino show “Classic Cher” residency with new performances between August 2 – 19 and November 8 – 25 2017. Showgirl Cher is having too much fun to hang up her wigs just yet! After all she just learned her new steps and set list routine.   Taking place in Park Theater’s 5,200-seat, re-imagined Monte Carlo venue, Cher just couldn’t resist the lucrative offer for more performances. You can view dates and buy tickets here.

The ladies of The Talk recently paid tribute to Cher the best way they know how on Feb 28.

Julie Chen, Sheryl Underwood, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and Aisha Tyler all took turns embodying a specific era of the icon’s career for an episode that aired on Tuesday.

“I’ve been dieting since we heard that Cher was coming, so I can fit into the outfit,” Underwood said.

The comedian went with the singer’s getup from the “If I Could Turn Back Time” music video, while Chen opted for the unforgettable Bob Mackie outfit from the Oscars, Gilbert went with the Sonny and Cher era, Tyler took on ’70s Cher and Osbourne dressed like Cher from her farewell tour.

“It’s every girl’s dream to be Cher for a day,” Chen admitted.

Cher was with the ladies for the full hour of the show, and she revealed details behind her 1989 “If I Could Turn Back Time” ensemble that were controversial at the time.

“It’s almost nothing now,” Cher pointed out. “It looked really daring, but if you were wearing a bathing suit, you’re kind of seeing the same thing. It was just the way Bob cut it. It just made it look like, ‘Oh this is just too much.'”

“I had such a great time doing that, and I was working with all the sailors and they were calling me ma’am,” she continued. “We had a whole scenario. I was on a boat and I was in a carriage. It was a whole thing and then they cut all of it out and said, ‘That’s what we want to see! Get on that cannon, baby!'”  View the full interview below..

Cher said that she wasn’t sure she was going to like the “Classic Cher” show, however it has suprised her, stating that the Vegas audience loooove it.  With all those new fresh ideas, costumes and set list, who wouldn’t?

It has also recently been revealed the long awaited new song “Prayers for this World” Cher was working on for the Cries from Syria documentary has been shelved.

Cher has cancelled her Feb 18th and 19th dates at the Park Theatre at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino due to illness. Further announcements will be made regarding future dates. The pop diva has been prone to illness in recent years cancelling her Dressed To Kill tour with a “mystery illness”. After days of relentlessly bashing the President of the United States, Cher took to twitter to talk about her career informing fans she has been suffering from the flu and is doing her best to get better visiting her doctor daily.

Obviously this will be a huge disappointment to fans who have purchased tickets after missing out on the Dressed To Kill Tour, however we wish the diva all the best for a speedy recovery and to resume with the rest of the Classic Cher Tour.

Rehashing costumes, songs and choreography from her last 3 tours.

The audience may have needed to double check their tickets as Cher made her grand entrance miming Woman’s World… looking more like a Diana Ross “look a like”.   Wearing a revealing blue sequined gown with huge black afro, the diva descended on a recycled Dressed to Kill Tour prop. Cher mimed most of the song and walked from side to side with basic choreography and at some stages fist pumping the air pretending Donald Trump was in the audience as she sang Strong Enough. Cher opened her show with the same opening songs from her prior Dressed to Kill Tour.

Cher then wheeled out a carbon copy routine from the Farewell Tour riding an elephant prop miming All or Nothing and Gayatri Mantra opening.

A bit more déjà vu and Cher walked around the stage wearing the same costume from her Farewell Tour singing All I Really Wanna Do followed by her classics The Beat Goes On and I Got You Babe with the legendary Sonny Bono on the big screen.

Cher also performed Gypsies Tramps and Thieves, Dark Lady (same costume as Colosseum) and Half Breed (same costume as D2K & Colosseum) Welcome to Burlesque (same costume as D2k), Take Me Home (Same as Colosseum), After All riding a gondola (costume similar to D2K), Walking in Memphis & The Shoop Shoop song (similar costume to Farewell Tour with baggy jeans).  Choreography and props all similar to prior tours.

Later in the evening Cher donned her Turn Back Time outfit (same as last 3 tours) to sing I Found Someone followed by Turn Back Time.  This old girl certainly has this routine down pat after doing it so many times in the same order.  1, 2, 3 shuffle feet, move left, move right.

Finally Cher wore the same costume as D2K Tour to sing Believe, miming parts of the song while waving to the crowd.

Overall Classic Cher was a rehash of her prior 3 concert tours and die hard fans might be disappointed at the lack of new content.  If you have seen all her shows on DVD and in person save your money because not a lot of imagination or thought has gone into creating new exciting content, mixing around the setlist or adding new songs.  If you love “Classic Cher” same ole, same ole then go for it and enjoy her while she can still do it at age 70.

Cher Loree Rodkin

Cher made a rare appearance on the fashion circuit Tuesday night at a dinner at Sunset Tower to celebrate pal Loree Rodkin’s new collaboration on a scented fine jewelry collection with French fragrance house By Kilian.

“I had to be her friend to get half-price jewelry,” the singer joked of her 30-plus-year friendship with Rodkin, who started designing jewelry in the 1980s, after making her mark on Hollywood as a rock n’ roll interior decorator, and famously having affairs with Don Henley, Bernie Taupin and Richard Gere.

By Kilian is the French fragrance brand beloved by Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna, known for scents with such provocative names as Good Girl Gone Bad, Light My Fire and Voulez Vous Coucher Avec Moi, and for lacquered box clutch packaging that’s an accessory in itself.

Dressed casually in a cross-embroidered Chrome Hearts biker jacket and cashmere beanie, Cher wore her support for her friend on her wrist. “It’s a bracelet,” she said, lifting up her cuff to show a black diamond shield pendant on a cord wound around her wrist. “I still need to choose my fragrance.”

The six-piece collection, $2,950 to $10,000, in sterling silver and gray diamonds, combines the edginess of Rodkin’s aesthetic and By Kilian’s scents. Each piece comes with a ceramic insert, which when sprayed with fragrance, holds its scent throughout the day.

Melanie Griffith, Alana Stewart, Barbara Bach, Chrome Hearts co-founder Laurie Stark and Maxfield buyer Sarah Stewart were on hand to toast Rodkin, who also had a life as a talent manager for Robert Downey Jr., Brad Pitt and others before launching her jewelry collection. In fashion, she’s best known for her articulated bondage rings (and for designing the jewelry worn by first lady Michelle Obama to the 2009 inaugural balls).

Loree Rodkin Jewelry

Over dinner, Cher and Rodkin shared tales of their exploits on the road (an arrest in Moscow for climbing a statue in Red Square was one juicy anecdote) and got busy plotting a girls trip to Las Vegas on Feb. 8, when the singer will take up residency with a new show, “Classic Cher,” at the Monte Carlo, you can buy tickets here.

Representing the fragrance house was founder Kilian Hennessy (an heir to the Hennessy cognac and luxury goods empire) and his wife Elisabeth Jones-Hennessy.

Rodkin and the Hennessys met three years ago in Paris — or New York, depending on whom you ask — when Killian sent champagne to the jewelry designer’s table. The fragrance guru suggested they collaborate, and voila, a collection was born.

“I love any design that makes you feel in danger, but at the same time shielded and protected. For me, Loree is all about erotic armor,” said Hennessy. “We have the same kind of dark, romantic sensibility,” said Rodkin. And scented jewelry is the ultimate luxury, she added. “It’s like a treat for yourself.”

The collection will be available Nov. 1 at Maxfield, By Kilian boutiques.

Cher is not finished.

The iconic singer-actress is returning to the stage next year for a series of performances on both sides of the US because, well, she can’t imagine not working, not even at 70. Despite bidding fans farewell in past tours, Cher is not prepared to say her final goodbye.

“Someday, I will be finished,” she said during a recent interview to promote her forthcoming “Classic Cher” residency tour. “That’s really what I’ve said to myself: ‘Someday, you won’t be able to do this, but you’re able to right now.’ It’s like my mom misses driving. My mom loved driving. She can’t do it anymore.”

For now, Cher says she’s still capable of staging an extravaganza – and that’s what she intends to do.

The pop legend’s residency, which launches February 8 in Las Vegas, will feature revival performances and new takes on classics. Here the unabashedly honest artist tackled an array of topics:

On why her new show is called “Classic Cher”

“Oh, it’s just some bull**** word. It’s because I’m going to try and distill my career and let everybody remember and see who I was, what I did and try not to disappoint people. Like I hate it if I go to a concert and they don’t do the songs I want to hear.”

On whether she would perform with a Sonny Bono hologram

“No, a hologram doesn’t work for an arena because it doesn’t bend, so we do a big screen and angle it because it’s mostly him singing. We found all these videos where he’s facing me and I can sing facing him. It works out really well.”

On reviving one of her favourite past performances

“There’s a song that I love that was a hit called After All. One time, when I was in Vegas, I did it in this amazing boat. It came out of the mist … It made the song seem so much more mysterious and poignant and whatever, but few people saw it, so I’m going to bring that back.”

On emojis, which she frequently uses on Twitter

“For me, they are imperative. Emojis are like hieroglyphs. They really are hieroglyphs. You can use them to create emotion. You can use them to punctuate something. You can use them instead of words. I don’t understand punctuation at all because I’m so dyslexic.”

On Snapchat

“I find it fascinating, but I don’t have time to do everything. I have to have time to do other things. I can’t devote my life to it. Sometimes I go on too long (on Twitter) and think, ‘This is so dumb. You’re a grown-up.”‘

On her son, Chaz Bono, playing a hillbilly cannibal on the latest season of American Horror Story

“There’s more to come. The more he does, the better he’s going to be, but I think it’s great. I mean, come on. That’s your first thing, and it’s American Horror Story. It doesn’t get better that that.”

On the presidential election

“I can’t even bring myself to watch the debates. That’s how emotionally involved I am.”

On the most important political issue

“If the Republicans get the Supreme Court, we can say goodbye to all the strides we’ve made that are important, just for civil liberties. When you see the people he’s surrounded himself with up to now, one can only imagine who he’d pick to lead the country. He doesn’t want to do it. He wants to be the king, but he doesn’t want to do the work.”

On Donald Trump’s comments on Howard Stern’s show

“If someone said that my daughter was a hot piece of (expletive), I would put my fist through his (expletive) face.”

Cher Las Vegas Last Show

Cher’s “farewell” celebration seems an endless exercise. The entertainment legend actually surpassed the 10th anniversary of her “Living Proof: Farewell Tour” last year. In the years in between, she stopped by the MGM Grand Garden Arena on her 2014 “Dressed to Kill” tour and performed a three-year residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.  Buy Cher Tickets, best seats in the house!

But now, Cher, a fiery 70 years old, is serious, insisting that the run of just-announced “Classic Cher” performances at the Park Theater at Monte Carlo will cap her career as a live performer. The set of 18 shows opens Feb. 8 at the 5,300-seat venue and runs through May. 25, with more dates to be added.

“This is the last show, and we are going to give people something they want to see,” Cher said during a phone conversation as she drove the Pacific Coast Highway to her home in Malibu, Calif. “I’ll sing all my biggest hits. I’ll present them in a way that is memorable, with new technology, computer-generated images on the big screens, and people will be overcome by the production.”

And a Cher production requires a parade of costume changes. Expect another wardrobe parade at Park Theater.

“I’ve done that since my first solo show in Las Vegas,” she said. “I did it even though people put me down so badly. I really have had a love-hate relationship with Las Vegas over the years.”

Cher has been vocal about vociferous in her dissatisfaction with her shows at the Colosseum. “It was terrible for me. I felt I put on a really good show, but the audience did not get the benefit of that show,” she said. “The Colosseum is not conducive to standing and dancing. It’s really more like an opera house, and I felt people didn’t have the freedom to have a good time.” She has been updated on the plans for The Park Theater and says, “From all the specs I have seen, this will be a high-energy place.”

Cher said she’s had a great time performing Grand Garden Arena over the years, developing a strong relationship with many of the MGM Resorts officials responsible for luring her to The Park Theater. She also fondly recalls her earliest shows in the city, recording a live double-album at the Sahara in 1974, then moving into Circus Maximus in 1976 for her debut as a soloist.

“Sonny and I were supposed to play Caesars (at the Circus Maximus showroom) together and it was going to be a really big deal,” Cher said. “Then we broke up, but I came back and did it. It was a dinner show, and they can be kind of a pain because people are eating … but it was really, really fun.”

Cher did break the conversation to ask about how the presidential debates played out in Las Vegas. I asked if she had watched.

“Oh, hell no. I couldn’t. I took a bath instead,” she said. “I couldn’t watch any of them.” She has fired on Donald Trump on Twitter and says, “I’ve used my Twitter to show my anger and frustration and a pain, deep pain I almost can’t bear sometimes … I just don’t understand how a person like Donald Trump could be steps away from the presidency.” By the time she returns to Las Vegas, the new president will be sworn in and Cher will be the second resident headliner — after Bruno Mars — to play Park Theater.

“I hope there will be enough things that people will be excited to see,” she said, “and I hope we create some sort of magic.”

Cher James Corden Sing Live

Cher joined James Corden Thursday night to sing “I Got You, Bae,” a modernized version of her classic 1965 hit with Sonny Bono “I Got You Babe,”. “I’m going to do one of my favorite songs tonight,” the singer told the crowd. “But I want to do it in a different way.”

Corden strolled out onstage dressed, awkwardly, as Cher. Tossing around a black wig, he noted that Cher playing herself was “a bit obvious.” The two Chers filled their funny duet with lyrics about love in 2016 aimed at millenials, exploring topics like “Netflix and chill,” deleting Internet porn history and making a relationship “Facebook offish.”

“They say we’re young and we don’t know/ How to find love without using your phone,” Cher crooned. “I don’t know if all that’s true/ ‘Cause you swiped me and, baby, I swiped you,” Corden replied.

In a sit-down interview with Corden, Cher admitted she didn’t initially like “I Got You Babe,” written by her musical and romantic partner, Sonny Bono.”I was sleeping,” she said. “We bought a piano for $82 that only had a couple of broken keys. And we had only furniture for the bedroom, and he used to have a piano in the living room. He used to write, and he’d wake me up and go, ‘Cher, come here, I just need you to sing this,’ which I never wanted to do. So he was writing, and he said, ‘Cher, I want you to come here and sing this.’ I said, ‘Sonny, I’m embarrassed.’ He said, ‘Cher, Jesus, it’s just me.’ It was ‘I Got You, Babe.’ And I went, ‘I’m going back to bed. This is just nothing.’

“It was on the piano. It just sounded like … I don’t even know. Just really not a hit song,” she continued. “But I said the same thing about [1989 solo hit ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’] … Because Diane Warren did the demo, and it was terrible. And I love her, as much as I love her … Finally, she said, ‘I’ll pay for it.’ And if you know Diane Warren, that’s a big [thing]. I said, ‘OK, babe, if you’re gonna pay for it, you have to believe it in so much – I’ll do it.’ Two takes, that was it.'”

Modern love — it’s just so charming.

Watch the pair bring down the house with their adorable rendition, complete with updated lyrics: “When I text you an eggplant, you’ll send me a nude on Snapchat.”

Lyrics of Cher & James Corden “I Got You Bae”

CHER:
They say we’re young and we don’t know,
How to find love without using your phone.

JAMES:
Well, I don’t know if all that’s true.
Cause you swiped me, and baby, I swiped you.

TOGETHER:
Bae,
I got you bae.
I got you bae.

JAMES:
When I text you, an eggplant,
You’ll send me a nude, on Snapchat.

CHER:
And when we make it, Facebook “offish,”
That means more to me than marriage.

JAMES:
When I watch porn, when I’m all alone,
I’ll delete the history, before you come home.

CHER:
And when we fight, and I get revenge,
By posting a pic of me with my ex-boyfriend.

TOGETHER:
Bae,
I got you bae.
I got you bae.

JAMES:
I got you as my date.

CHER:
I got you to sext me late.

JAMES:
I got you to Netflix and Chill.

CHER:
I got you covered ‘cause I take the pill.

JAMES:
I got you always in my head.

CHER:
I got you to try that thing in bed!

JAMES:
I got you, to do this sketch!

CHER:
And I got you in that ridiculous outfit!

TOGETHER:
I got you Bae.
