Legendary singer Cher visited the Late Show with David Letterman on CBS Tuesday night. Cher made a spectacular entrance into the Ed Sullivan Theater, after which the iconic entertainer chatted with Dave about numerous subjects, including twerking, tattoos and Miley Cyrus, according to Broadway World on Sept. 25.
Cher, who's won an Academy Award, a Grammy Award and an Emmy Award, was there to promote her newest album "Closer to the Truth". But the always interesting play between the 67-year-old goddess and oft cantankerous Letterman apparently hasn't lost its spark over the years.
Cher ended up spending the entire hour in the guest chair, as she and Dave talked about a lot of things, including her controversial dressing down of Miley Cyrus' VMA twerking performance.
Cher admitted that sometimes she should probably just shut her mouth, but stopped short of offering an apology for saying recently when asked, that she didn't think Miley's performance at the VMAs was good.
She did however say, that in since viewing Cyrus' song on YouTube, that she likes her singing of it, but just didn't care for her performance that night.
Dave then segued into what Cher thinks of twerking. He perhaps jokingly admitted that in his day that was viewed as humping. When he prodded Cher whether that was her take on it, she replied with a long, "Noooo".
Cher shared stories throughout the show about her experiences during her long and storied career in the music business. She confessed that she didn't care much for Janis Joplin, but she adored Jimi Hendrix.
Cher did meet the Beatles, but was actually friendly with The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys. She said how when the Stones came over to America, they wanted to move in with her and then husband Sonny Bono.
Besides being an award-winning actress and singer, Cher is also an accomplished film and music producer, fashion designer, author, TV star, songwriter, model, dancer and entrepreneur. Recognized as one of the best-selling music artists of all time, she's sold more than 100 million solo albums, and over 40 million records as Sonny & Cher, worldwide. Cher is the only artist to have a number-one single on a Billboard chart in each of the past six decades.
In discussing Joplin, Cher mentioned that the two of them were considered the bad girls of the 60s because of the way they dressed, and perhaps because they were the first women to get tattoos.
Cher fessed up that she's having the tattoos removed though, because everyone has them now, and hers are old and not as good artistically as they are today.
She joked with Letterman that she also doesn't want the one on her butt to end up sagging in the wind when she's an old lady.
Cher just released her newest album, "Closer to the Truth". When Dave asked her why it's been over a decade since her last release, she said the reason was simple, "I forgot".
Cher performed one of the new singles off the album, a fantastic ballad called "I Hope You Find It". Monday morning she also performed the song on the "Today" show.
Cher revealed Monday she's recently been suffering from a bout with laryngitis, according to the Daily News. But that didn't stop the diva from giving awesome performances on both shows.
She also announced Monday that she's going to tour again. Kicking off in March of 2014 in Phoenix, Cher will hit 49 cities in North America, wrapping up in July in San Diego.
Cher, admittedly not a morning person, tweeted later Monday that she'd just woken up in the same clothes she wore on TV that morning, adding what's worse, "I fell asleep in 37 pounds of makeup!".
For her last tour, Cher performed a record-breaking 325 dates for 5.5 million fans.
