Cher talks about age, dating, Tom Cruise and Chaz
Cher’s new single Woman’s World has reached number one on the Billboard Dance Chart – not bad for a performer who had her first number one song 49 years ago!
Extra’s Jerry Penacoli sat down with the superstar before the performance of her new single at Rasputin Nightclub in West Hollywood last Saturday.
Here is some of what she said:
On Her Age:
Cher partied with her fans until 2:00 AM, proving that even at 67, she can keep up. She told Penacoli she forgets how old she is. “I forget and then I’ll remember and I’ll go, ‘Oh my god!’… What was I doing all this time?”
Cher admits she isn’t dating anyone right now, “It comes and goes. It takes a very strange man to come and approach me. Michele Pfeiffer and I once wanted to go dancing, we went to this club and we sat at this table for 15 minutes and no one came up.”
Cher did date Tom Cruise in 1985, recently revealing to Andy Cohen he was one of her all-time favorite lovers. Cher has not heard from Cruise since making the comments, but says, “I know him from a different time. The sweetest, most fun boy. Adorable. I don’t know him now, but every time I’ve seen him, it’s been like, you know, adorable… that was a wonderful memory.”
On Son Chaz Bono:
Cher says she is proud of her son, Chaz, though it is not always easy, “It’s easier and easier when Chaz and I are together, it’s a no brainer, but sometimes you’re just not prepared or someone talks about the old days and then you just wonder how to process that.”
