Cher planning to scream under her pillow when she hits 78

Entertainment, Celebrity

Cher hates the idea of turning 78 so much she is planning to mark the birthday by screaming under her pillow.

The ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’ singer, who will be 78 on Monday (20.05.24), spoke out about how she despises ageing while attending the premiere of the documentary ‘Bob Mackie: Naked Illusion’ at the Paley Center in Los Angeles.

She said when asked by Entertainment Tonight what her plans were for the big day: “Putting my pillow over my head and screaming.”

When asked the same question at the event by E! News, the ‘Believe’ singer added: “I’m putting my head under the bed.”

Cher last year celebrated her 77th birthday on X by asking when she would start to feel her age.

She posted the message: “Ok, Will Someone (praying hands emoji) PLEASE Tell me…..When Will I Feel OLD (baby face emoji.)

“This is ridiculous. I keep hearing these numbers, but I Honestly can’t understand them. WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH #'s!? I’m dyslexic and #’s Are hard 4 me.”

She added to her fans: “Thank u for staying, I know it’s been hard. Got to go work out. Twitter is harder for me than TweetBot.”

In November, Cher told ‘Good Morning Britain’ about her thoughts on ageing: “I just can’t believe I will be 80 at some point, sooner than I wish.

“And I will still be wearing my jeans and I will still be wearing long hair and I will still be doing the same stuff I’ve always done.”

Cher is still thought to be seeing her younger boyfriend, Alexander ‘AE’ Edwards, 38.

The singer has defended her and Alexander’s age gap and relationship by insisting they love each other.

She said last year they “kiss like teenagers” and has declared: “Love doesn’t know math, it sees.”

Cher has added: “On paper, it’s kind of ridiculous. But in real life, we get along great… and I think he’s quite handsome.”
