Cher's quotes

  • In this business, you have to be tough, and if someone pushes me really far, I can certainly be impossible. I've always said, "If you're nice, they walk over you, and if you stand up for yourself, they call you a bitch.".
  • I'm not a role model, nor have I ever tried to be a role model. The only thing about me as a role model is I've managed to stay here and be working and survive. For 40 years.
  • I haven't a clue why I've lasted so long. There's no reason. There are many people more talented than me. I think it's luck.
  • [People magazine, 9/1/85] I was a shy ugly kid who led a big fantasy life. I thought I was an angel sent from heaven, to cure polio. When Dr. Salk [Jonas Salk] did that I was really pissed off.
  • The trouble with some women, they get all excited about nothing - and then they marry him.
  • The only grounds for divorce in California are marriage.
  • [on friendship] I can trust my friends... these people force me to examine myself, encourage me to grow.
  • [on truth] Honesty makes me feel powerful in a difficult world.
  • [on spirit] Women, unlike most men, are able to accept mystery, accept whatever comes to them -- even if it's not logical.
  • [on Meryl Streep] She's an acting machine in the same sense that a shark is a killing machine. That's what she was born to be.
  • I think men are fun and nice, but I don't think they're necessary to live. Chastity has a nice father, I think Sonny is a decent father. Elijah's father is absolutely useless. He's not worthwhile at all. He hasn't called Elijah in two years.
  • Men aren't necessities, they're luxuries.
  • I love ghosts, I prefer ghosts to some people.
  • I don't think of myself as a singer. I don't have that kind of confidence. I want to put on a show. I want to dazzle people. For me, everything goes through my eyes first. Even when I did 'The Star Spangled Banner' I was wondering : What should I wear?
  • [on why she dates younger men] Older men rarely liked me. If it wasn't for younger men, I would never have a date.
  • [on Warren Beatty] Warren has probably been with everybody I know, and unfortunately I am one of them. But since I was only 16 maybe I can get out of it with that. I don't know if I was a bimbo then, but I had pretty low self-esteem.
  • It mystifies me that people would care what I do to my body... Just because you become famous shouldn't deter you from doing what you want with your life.
  • [on her debut single, "Ringo I Love You"] I sounded too much like a boy. Everyone thought it was a faggot song.
  • [her reaction to Donald Trump's victory in the 2016 presidential election] It's like there's a death in my family.
  • [on her support for the Armenian Genocide epic The Promise (2016)] Adolf Hitler said 'If they don't remember the Armenians, they won't remember the Jews'. We cannot let this happen to another group of people.
  • [before singing "We All Sleep Alone" at a June 3, 1989 concert] I just broke up with my boyfriend, so this next song is particularly meaningful to me.
  • [on Bill Maher] Fuck him.
  • 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.
  • [on Donald Trump] I hate to even call him a president because all he does is watch TV.
  • People who just disagreed with each other before are now enemies.
