No, Cher is doesn’t like to hear herself sing. She told the UK’s The Sun on Sunday,
“In general, I’m not a huge Cher fan, I’m really not.
I’d rather do the singing than listen to it. I don’t want to listen to what I do, I don’t want to see it and I don’t want to hear my voice.
I’m really not outgoing and I never have been. I’m kind of shy. When I’m on stage that feeling goes away, but right before I go up I feel like I am going to pass out. I couldn’t even sing in front of Sonny.”
And she’s also counted herself out more than once.
“I’ve had many times when I thought my career was over. I have gone up so high and then fallen down so low. I did the films Witches, Moonstruck and Suspect in a row, then I made an album. Then I went on tour to publicize all of those things then I came back and just fell apart. I was sick for two years.”
But she swears this tour is IT.
“This is my last tour. I’m 73. I skip across the stage then once I get around it I walk. My mom is 93 and she keeps going,
‘Cher, age is just a number. If you don’t bother it, it won’t bother you’.
I keep going,
‘Mom you are crazy’.
It is so embarrassing because I keep on having these farewell tours. I’m not 100, but I’m close.
I, honest to God, think this is the end, not because I can’t do it any more, but because I’m older than glass and people are just going to get tired of coming to see me.”
Never, Cher. We ARE big Cher fans.
