Throwback Interview Cher Says “Men Are A Luxury, Not A Necessity” [Video]

Iconic singer Cher has always been a woman who can stand on her own. In a vintage viral video of the diva she can be seen demonstrating just how badass she truly is.

In a 1996 interview with Jane Pauley, the singer and Oscar-winning actress declares that “a man is not a necessity, a man is a luxury.” 

“Did you mean that to sound mean and bitter?” Pauley asks.

“Oh not at all… I think men are the coolest! But you don’t really need them to live.” 

But the most amazing part of the interview is when Cher tells a story about her mother asking her to “settle down and marry a rich man.” 

“I said ‘mom, I am a rich man.’”. Yasss Ms. Hunny!
