Cher claims she and Madonna 'buried' their feud 'a long time ago'

Cher has dismissed a rumour claiming that she and Madonna are currently locked in a feud.

While speaking to the Los Angeles Times, the Believe singer was asked if she was aware that Madonna was using old interview footage of her calling the Material Girl mean in her Celebration Tour shows.

"I said a lot worse than that," Cher responded. "I actually like her. But come on."

When asked whether she believed that Madonna was mean, Cher replied, "She can be. We buried that hatchet a long time ago because I called her something so much worse, and she forgave me."

In the old interview clip, the singer and actress called Madonna a "spoiled brat" and added, "It seems to me when you reach the kind of acclaim that she's reached... you should be a little bit more magnanimous, and a little bit less of a c***."

Elsewhere in the LA Times interview, Cher insisted there was no "beef" between her and Madonna and praised her for being ahead of the curve.

"There's no one like her that had their ear to the ground and knew everything before anybody else. I mean, she knew what was coming, and she was right on it. I always felt that was her greatest gift - that she could know the trends before any of us," she added.

A representative for Cher also released a statement to Fox News Digital following the interview, asserting, "The mean statement was made many years ago. Cher has since then expressed admiration for (Madonna) as an artist and humanitarian."
