Cher is returning to the stage at 70

 

She’s a pop icon who’s entertained fans for over 50 years, and we have good news for those fans: At 70, Cher is not slowing down yet.

In fact, she plans to hit the road and take the stage again next year for a show filled with the glitzy costumes and powerful performances she’s known for.

“I didn’t want to be finished,” Cher told Maria Shriver during a Wednesday morning interview on TODAY. “I didn’t want to be through with singing, and I knew that this would probably be the last time. My voice is still really good. I’m still active and running around. I can still fit into my costumes.”

“I thought that this is probably … it’s now or never,” she added.

While she isn’t letting the years hold her back, she also admits that she’s having a bit of trouble accepting her age.

“I look in the mirror, and I see this old lady looking back at me — I have no idea how she got there. If I put 70 candles on my cake, I would blow my brains out, you know?” she said.

But to the rest of us, the superstar seems ageless — no matter the decade, she’s still Cher.

“I’ve never really been in love with Cher. She’s all right, but I’m not a huge fan…I’m not a Cher fan,” she said. “I just don’t know how to accept [my age]. I don’t want to either – but I don’t really know how to. I look in the mirror, and I see this old lady looking back at me. And I have no idea how she got there.”

She is, however, a fan of returning to the stage — and to the Las Vegas Strip — for “Classic Cher.”

But even getting the opportunity to return to a big gig after a certain age is out of reach for many women in entertainment, and the Oscar winner has some advice for her peers.

“I say you have to be like a bumper car and you hit the wall, and you back up, and you go a different way — and then you go at the wall again,” Cher insisted. “The only thing I know is not to give up. I don’t know anything else.”  – Source Today

    I cannot believe she is 70. Yes, in close-ups of her face these days, you can see she has aged but even so she does NOT look like a 70 year old! She is incredibly well preserved and when I see her I do not think “old lady.” I think, “it’s good ol’ Cher.” It is often sad when we see a favorite celebrity age terribly and deteriorate even if it’s normal and natural to. I guess fans tend to be a bit selfish and use celebrities as comfort much like comfort foods. So when they suddenly don’t look familiar anymore, lose their sex appeal, and have slowed down, it saddens us. But with Cher, she has remained a constant. She is probably her worst critic but from an outside perspective, she absolutely looks amazing at 70. She probably wisely has minor procedures done only enough to rejuvenate and it all comes across as nuances rather than major alterations. That’s what I think her secret is. She is wise about not drastically changing her looks and is not a dimwit who thinks she could look 25 again with plastic surgery, which almost always makes people look even older and like the Joker. I’m sure she has had work done but it’s obvious it has only been minor and to still be able to wear that one outfit at 70? She got good genes.
