Cher: 'I hate ageing'

Cher: 'I hate ageing'
/ Cover Media

Cher has confessed she hates getting older, and wishes she could stop ageing.

The 74-year-old icon, who has openly admitted to going under the knife to maintain her youthful appearance, candidly shared her thoughts in a new interview with The Guardian, and admitted she detests the ageing process.

"I hate it. 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 quipped.

The If I Could Turn Back Time hitmaker, who once joked she was the poster girl for cosmetic surgery, also shared her concerns over an increasing number of young women changing their appearance, and became frustrated when asked if she thought she had normalised plastic surgery.

“Wait, what? You say I made it OK for what?” she fired. “These girls are having surgery at 18. So come on! I’ve never seen girls do so much to want to change everything they look like. I never wanted to do that. You’ve got big lips to start with and a big butt. I don’t understand it.”

And the multi-talented performer dismissed the idea that having surgery has prolonged her time in the spotlight, and instead said her six-decade-long career – including her Best Actress Oscar win and multiple Las Vegas residencies – has been simply due to her talent.

“You don’t pay bucks to stand and look at someone. They’ve got to deliver something," Cher stated. “And I’ve worked my whole life to keep my strength in my body. There are 20-year-old girls who can’t do what I do.”
