Cher reveals the brutally honest reason she dates younger men

If you’ve ever wondered why Cher seemingly refuses to date someone her own age, well the iconic star has a fairly simple reason, and to be honest it makes a lot of sense.

During a recent appearance on The Jennifer Hudson Show, the 77-year-old entertainer offered a perfectly legitimate reason she seeks younger men as a romantic partner.

While talking about the time she turned down Elvis, Cher revealed she’s typically “really shy” around men, especially when she’s not working with them.

Then without any prompting she said, “And the reason I go out with young men is because men my age are older — well, now they’re all dead — but before, they were always terrified to approach me. And younger men were the only ones that…”

“They’re bold,” Jennifer Hudson interrupted.

“Yeah, raised by women like me,” Cher added.

Her explanation comes after her relationship with Alexander “AE” Edwards, who is 40 years her junior, captured the attention of both fans and the media.

When questioned about Edwards’ potential motives, Cher responded on X, “Let Me Explain…I DONT GIVE A [flying] FK WHAT ANYONE THINKS.”

It’s 2024, we shouldn’t have to give a reason why we choose the people we date. As long as it’s not harming anyone let people love who they love.
