Meanwhile, Cher travelled the world with her 'Here We Go Again' tour in 2019 and encouraged women to fulfil their potential.

Speaking from the stage during her show at London's O2 arena, Cher said: "I hate to tell people my age -- I just hate my age right now

"I hate those women who say 'oh, I'm so happy with my age. Bulls**t!'

"But I tell people my age. I tell them because I want young women to know that you can do anything you want to because there was no way I was going to grow up to be this [a singer].

"For older women, I want to say, come on, this is the second half go do something fun and something productive - you can do whatever you want."
