Iconic singer, Cher, recently opened up about the age she’d like to live to, commenting she’s “already past my sell-by date.” The 77-year-old singer, during an interview with The LA Times, was questioned if she aspires to reach 96, her mother’s age at passing. Candidly, Cher responded, “No, I’m thinking about 80.”
Cher, who clinched an Oscar for her role in Moonstruck, added, “I don’t want to not be me.” Discussing future tours, Cher expressed her ambition, mentioning an anecdote with Barbra Streisand, and highlighting the intensity of her performances.
