Cher reveals why she dates younger men

Cher has revealed why she dates younger men.

The 77-year-old music legend has opened up about dating younger men amid her romance with 38-year-old music executive Alexander 'AE' Edwards.

"The reason I got with younger men is because, men my age are they're all dead," Cher said on Wednesday's episode of The Jennifer Hudson Show. "But before, they were all just terrified to approach me, and younger men were the only ones."

The talk show host then noted that younger men are "bold," prompting the If I Could Turn Back Time hitmaker to add that they were "raised by women like me".

Elsewhere in the interview, Cher revealed that she had once turned down Elvis Presley.

"I was nervous and I knew of the people around him," she told Jennifer. "And it wasn't that they were bad people, it's just that I was kind of nervous of his reputation."

The Burlesque star added, "I mean, I'm really shy when I'm not working and kind of shy around men."

Cher and Alexander met during Paris Fashion Week in September 2022, and went public with their relationship two months later in November that year.
