Cher: I won't date old timer

Published 03/11/2013


Cher is keen to steer clear of “old fogie” men when it comes to dating.

The American singer has previously been married to fellow musician Sonny Bono and rock star Gregg Allman. She has also dated younger stars including Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer.

The star may be 67 but she still has a youthful outlook on life and wants someone with a similar mindset.

“I’ve only been with two older men, but no other older guy has ever asked me out. I don’t know why – I think younger men are used to being around stronger women,” she told British magazine Closer.

“Also the older men I’ve met were kind of boring and they didn’t want to do the same things I did. I love a sense of humour and people who are spontaneous with a young spirit – I don’t like being around old fogie types!”

Cher is currently single and happy in her situation. She doubts she will ever marry again, unless there is a momentous change in her life.

“I don’t believe in going from one man to another. I wouldn’t say no, but I can’t imagine why I’d say yes. Something bizarre would have to happen,” she laughed.

While she isn’t keen to be a wife the raven-haired star would love to be a grandmother. She wishes her son Elijah – who she had with Greg – would settle down.

“I just don’t know when that’s going to happen. I’ve been wishing for it for years and years because I love kids, but nobody seems as if they’re going to step up to the plate,” she laughed. “I think maybe Elijah will, but I wish he’d hurry up.”
