Cher has been a fashion and beauty icon ever since she first stepped on stage with Sonny Bono back in the 1960s. Now that she’s in her 70s, the songstress is still a total knockout. There aren’t many other 72-year-olds who would willingly embark on a cross-country tour, but Cher has always been one to stand out from the crowd. Her upcoming album of ABBA covers, Dancing Queen, is set to be released on September 28, 2018, with a tour following at the start of 2019.
Of course, fans might be a bit confused considering Cher’s so-called “farewell” tour nearly 15 years ago, something Ellen DeGeneres was quick to bring up on a September 2018 episode of her chat show while talking with the diva. Cher admitted that, at the time, she really did believe she was done with the touring life. Luckily, she’s just as spry as she was in her heydays — another subject Ellen made sure to point out, particularly when it came to Cher’s toned derriere.
Ellen began by asking, “Do you work out a lot?” Cher immediately confirmed she does squeeze in a lot of exercise, though not every day. As for her youthful behind, Cher was a bit more reluctant to reveal exactly how she keeps everything so perky. It’s not that she was embarrassed to discuss the “old fashioned” methods. Instead, she knew Ellen would take the opportunity to make a joke — and she was right, of course. As she described getting “down on all fours," Ellen couldn’t keep herself from asking playfully, “Is someone else in the room?”
Cher was eventually able to continue her explanation, "OK, so you get down on all fours and you put your leg up and you make an L with your leg and you do it up like that.” She claimed to do “three sets of 25” per leg, which is easy to believe while watching her perform. Cher also confessed to doing Zumba in her home with the help of a tape.
If those exercises have helped Cher turn back time with her incredible figure, we all might want to follow her lead. Here’s hoping she shares more of her fitness tips on social media while she’s out on the road next year.
