Cher is giving a piece of advice for all women.
The 77-year-old pop legend appeared on Amelia Dimoldenberg’s YouTube interview series, “Chicken Shop Date.” In the latest episode, released on Friday, the host posed a question about something she believes every woman should experience at least once in their lifetime. In response, the iconic celebrity shared a concise piece of dating wisdom.
“Go out with a younger man,” Cher said.
Further into the conversation, when discussing the benefits of dating someone younger, she mentioned, “Older men just do not like me.”
The singer has a track record of dating younger men, including figures like Val Kilmer, Tom Cruise, and Rob Camilletti in the 1980s. More recently, she embraced her romantic instincts by entering a relationship with her current boyfriend, Alexander “A.E.” Edwards.
However, during her appearance on Chicken Shop Date, she revealed that she had previously set her own rules, including a preference for not dating younger men. Despite this, she found herself in love with the 37-year-old music executive. Cher clarified that her feelings for Edwards didn’t develop rapidly, as she initially did not feel a strong connection. Nevertheless, she eventually found herself charmed by him through their text exchanges, even though she believed it went against her own judgment.
“I left to go to Switzerland and he texted me, ‘Where are you going?’ I said “I’m going to Switzerland. I’m a little tired,’ and then he wrote me, ‘Well, get some rest, babyyy,’ with three Ys,” she said. “And I’m like, ‘He doesn’t know me well enough to put three Ys on baby.’ I was kind of pissed off. And then he just started texting me.”
She added, “I told my friends, don’t fall in love with a younger man, we’re too old. And don’t fall in love by text. There goes that theory.”
The singer-songwriter initially crossed paths with the record producer at a Paris Fashion Week event in the previous year. Following a mutual friend’s introduction and a few months of dating discreetly, the couple decided to make their relationship public in the autumn of 2022.
