Not only does aging affect the singer’s views on her appearance, but she also said partying isn’t the same as she’s gotten older. However, she said she takes pride in the fact that she doesn’t rely on cosmetic procedures like her younger counterparts.

“I’ve never seen girls do so much to want to change everything they look like,” Cher said of the younger generation. I never wanted to do that. You’ve got big lips to start with and a big butt. I don’t understand it.”

“You don’t pay bucks to stand and look at someone,” she continued.”They’ve got to deliver something. And I’ve worked my whole life to keep my strength in my body. There are 20-year-old girls who can’t do what I do.”
