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 confessed. "She's all right, but it's like I'm not a huge fan."
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."
Tickets for the first dates of the "Classic Cher" tour go on sale this weekend.
