Cher, 77, reveals keeping her hair long is the key to her youthful appearance as she weighs in on Susanna Reid’s new look after she opted for the chop
Cher revealed the secrets to how she preserves her youthful looks at the age of 77 during an appearance on Good Morning Britain on Monday.
The singer who admitted that she ‘couldn’t believe she will be 80 soon’, revealed what she won’t be doing, the older she gets.
Speaking to hosts Susanna Reid and Ed Balls, who asked her how she stays so young and radiant, Cher said she would ‘never cut her hair short or stop wearing jeans’.
The mantra came as a surprise to host Susanna, who debuted a shorter hairstyle on the show, having cut her hair aged 52.
Yet Cher explained: ‘I remember when my friend Paulette and I were talking about when we were going to cut our hair and stop wearing jeans.’

Fan reaction: After debating the key to looking young with Cher earlier in the show, Susanna asked her followers for their thoughts
She continued: ‘I 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.
‘Genes in my family are pretty amazing.
‘I don’t know if not feeling old makes you younger. I’m not sure. I keep up with the trends and I have lots of young friends.
‘I have old friends too. Honestly, I’m not trying to feel young, I’m not trying to be young, I am what I am, whatever that means.’
Host Susanna later took the debate to X (formerly known as Twitter) as she spoke about her own change in appearance.
Sharing a before and after snap with her shorter hair, she penned: ‘The mid-life hair debate! At 52 I’ve had the CHOP. But Cher told me this morning, women should keep it LONG as they grow older. What do YOU think?’
Cher had appeared on the ITV breakfast show to speak about the time she rescued the World’s Loneliest Elephant in 2020.
Cher helped free the malnourished Asian elephant, named Kavaan, who had spent nearly 20 years chained up in a zoo.
The actress said it was ‘so amazing’ to see Kavaan change his behaviour so quickly, once his surroundings improved.
She said: ‘When I first saw him, you saw him do the swaying thing, which means an elephant is in distress or having a breakdown.
‘So when I first saw him I knew what was going on because I knew the signs. I sang to him… really badly, but he was so beautiful.

‘I was happy because it had taken us give years so I’d already had my pain five years before that and when I saw him I thought this is going to be so great.
‘I didn’t know how long it would take or if he would ever change that behaviour, but the night that we took him to the sanctuary, he came out of stress so quickly it was amazing.’
In May, the icon spoke openly about turning 77 in a candid post on Twitter and mused about not feeling old in the slightest.
Her post about her ageless beauty comes after her recent breakup with 37-year-old boyfriend Alexander ‘A.E.’ Edwards, who she reportedly ‘still cares’ for and could possibly reunite with in the future.
Cher tweeted: ‘Ok, Will Someone PLEASE Tell me…..When Will I Feel OLD. This is ridiculous. I keep hearing these numbers, but I Honestly can’t understand them.
‘WHATS THE DEAL WITH #’s!? I’m dyslexic & #’s Are hard 4 me. Thank u for staying, I know it’s been hard. Got to go work out. Twitter is harder for me than TweetBot.’
Although, the If I Could Turn Back Time star split from Alexander, who is nearly four decades her junior, pals say the pair still have strong feelings for one another.
A source close to the star told the DailyMail that the legendary performer (born Cherilyn Sarkisian) has had an on/off relationship with A.E., sparking rumors of a possible reunion: ‘Cher is mercurial. And she changes her mind every minute.’
Throwback: The singer added that she has a lot of younger friends to keep her up with trends and added that ‘she never feels like she’s getting older’ (pictured age 29 in 1975)
Amazing! In May, the icon also spoke openly about turning 77 in a candid post on Twitter and mused about not feeling old in the slightest (pictured age 73 in 2019)
The source explained: ‘She actually really cares about A.E., and now that she’s closer to her kids, she wants more stability in her life. Although it’s off for now, no one in her close circle would be surprised to see them back together.
Cher is twice divorced and has son, Chaz Bono, 53, with her late ex-husband Sonny Bono who died in 1998 at age 62 from injuries sustained after hitting a tree while skiing.
She was later married from 1975 to 1978 to late singer Gregg Allman who died in 2017 at age 69. Cher and Gregg had son Elijah Blue Allman, 46, together.
Cher has previously said she dates younger men – after dating Ron Zimmerman, who is 12 years her junior, Tom Cruise, when he was 23 and she was 38, and Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora, who is 13 years younger than her.
She also dated entertainment executive David Geffen after splitting with Bono and dated for two years in the mid-70s.
