Since the ’60s, Cher has cemented herself as a fashion icon by often wearing risqué outfits like revealing bodysuits and extravagant two-piece costumes. But, in a new interview with People, the 72-year-old singer revealed that her on-stage ensembles actually aren’t a reflection of her preferred at-home personal style — and she loves to wear sweatpants when she’s not working!
“I go around just in my sweatpants. I don’t go around in makeup, I have my hair in a ponytail — I like my off time,” Cher confessed. “I like not being glamorous. I like just being grubby.”
Cher — who recently starred in the new Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again film — knows that dressing comfortably is far better than constantly wearing over-the-top outfits. “It’s not a difference in exactly who I am, but it’s a heightened reality. You know, you can’t go around being glamorous Cher all the time,” she said.
During another recent interview on the Today show, the mom-of-two also admitted her iconic “Eat the Rich” t-shirt — that she first sported in the ’80s and again in the 2000s — is her “favorite” top she’s worn so far. “My favorite shirt is 30 years old. As a matter of fact, people have pictures chronicling this shirt for a million years, and I don’t care, and I don’t care how many times I wear it,” she shared.
Over the years, Cher definitely hasn’t let her celebrity status hold her back from recycling her favorite outfits. “[The mentality is], once I wear this, I’ll never be able to wear it again. But that’s dumb. I don’t want to play that; that’s a young girl’s game,” she said of repeating styles. Even in her sweatpants, we’ll always love Cher’s iconic Hollywood style!
