Cher ‘mostly’ admires Gaga

Cher

Cher likes Lady Gaga’s songs “for the most part”.

The singing legend is currently promoting her latest album Closer to the Truth. Cher’s duet with Gaga failed to make the final cut because the younger star didn’t like the finished result, with Cher admitting music is a very personal thing.

“I like Rihanna’s music a lot and I think you can’t get better than Adele. I like what Gaga’s songs say for the most part and how she presents herself. She’s very creative and strong,” she told Heat magazine.

The 67-year-old is amazed by how much has changed since she started out in the industry, although she tries to embrace new things. Among those is social networking, with Cher a prolific user of Twitter. She enjoys interacting with fans and other stars but thinks it is up to musicians to ensure their admirers don’t go too far.

“I don’t like it when all the Little Monsters [Lady Gaga fans] come down on me, I think young artists don’t realize that you have to support one another and there no room for b***hing,” she explained. “Women stand together and so do artists. You might fight if you don’t like someone but you still have to support them.”

Cher didn’t expect to have another album out following her last release in 2001, Living Proof. She loves her work, but is careful to always make time for fun too.

“I’ve partied a lot in my life – I still like it but don’t get a chance to do it much. I go out to dinner with my friends but it’s too hard to go dancing. I was at this club the other night and had so much fun but there was no room on the dance floor so I danced where I was,” she laughed.
