Cher (Who Just Announced Her New Musical!) Admits She Doesn’t Enjoy Growing Older: “I Thought I’d Be Dead by Now!”

At 70 years old, Cher looks better than ever — but that doesn’t mean she’s enjoyed growing older!

After more than 50 years in the spotlight, the singer just announced a musical about her prolific life and career will be coming to Broadway next year. “Just got off phone with writer and director of musical. There will be performance in theatre with actors, dancers, [and] singers — it’ll be on Broadway [in] 2018,” Cher revealed via Twitter on Tuesday, June 6.

The music legend additionally revealed she doesn’t like Cher (yes, you read that right) or being known as a music icon. “I’m not a Cher fan. I just don’t think my aesthetic taste lies in her direction,” she admitted.

“‘Icon’ is a stupid word,” Cher said. “Things just didn’t come easily to me. I made lots of mistakes.”

One of the “treacherous” times she endured was her 1975 divorce from Sonny Bono. “Maybe we should have never been husband and wife. Sonny could be the best person you ever met — the funniest, the most adorable. Or not. He was like the little girl with the curl,” Cher said.
