Cher made a surprise appearance on David Letterman to say goodbye to the talk show host as he retires from the Late Show. Cher told Dave “For a number of years, there’s something that I’ve always wanted to get straight between us… This is one thing that I really mean from the bottom of my heart, I’m not kidding, no bullshit: I really love you and I’m going to miss you.”
The two hugged. “That’s very sweet of you,” Letterman told her. “Yes,” Cher responded, “and you’re still an asshole.”
Wearing the same iconic jacket worn when Cher last performed with Sonny in 1987, Cher looked more beautiful than ever. Cher left the Late Show studios wearing a white fringed leather jacket, drop crotch loose fit jodhpurs and a pair of knee high buckled boots. Pushing the pirate theme Cher even added a tan silk bandanna over her signature long black hair. Cher was very gracious with fans and happily posed for photos.
