Cher Says Getting Older ‘Pisses’ Her Off

Cher has revealed the age she’d go back to if she could “turn back time,” and it’s probably not what you were expecting.

In a new interview with the “Today” show, the pop star got candid about the realities of aging while discussing the 25th anniversary of her 1998 hit song, “Believe.”

As other celebrities embrace their advancing years, Cher, who is known for pushing the age-normative boundaries on fashion and even her romantic relationships, had a hilarious response to reaching another milestone.

“How amazing is it that ‘Believe’ is 25 years old?” “Today’s” Harry Smith asked the Grammy winner, to which she jokingly fired back, “It’s not that amazing, OK?”

Cher, 77, added: “Pisses me — It pisses the fuck out of me .… It just is, like, what is this?!”

“So you and age, you’re not friends?” Smith then asked.

“No!” she quickly replied. “My mother [Georgia Holt] didn’t mind, but I do. I hate it… I’d give anything to be 70 again!”

Speaking with The Guardian in 2020, she kept it real again about aging, calling the experience “not as much fun.”

“What, I’m going to say I like it? No, I don’t. Any woman who is honest will say it’s not as much fun,” Cher, then 74, admitted. “When I was working on the road, we used to work two shows a night and then go out dancing all night long.”

But nowadays, “it’s like we’ve got to rest because you’ve got another night.”

Cher is honored in 2017 at the Billboard Music Awards. Her recent comments about aging followed the release of a new Christmas album, “Christmas,” on Oct. 20.

She added: “Also, I don’t like going out now because everybody’s got a camera and it’s not safe. People rush you, and you don’t know if they’re going to kill you or take your picture. Either way, I don’t like it.”

Despite her upfront words about getting older, Cher tweeted a cheeky message on her birthday back in May about not quite feeling “old” yet.

“Ok, Will Someone PLEASE Tell me…..When Will I Feel OLD,” the “The Witches of Eastwick” star tweeted. “This is ridiculous. I keep hearing these numbers, but I Honestly can’t understand them.”

Fans on X (formerly Twitter) quickly swooped in to hype up the beloved singer in her comments section as she rang in another year.

“Queen. Age is a state of mind,” one person wrote.

Another said, “You are timeless and eternal! We ❤️ you, beautiful @cher!!”

“Age is a number. When you open your heart (like I know you do) we are ageless. The spirit hasn’t got an age,” someone else added.
