Not new to being in the media spotlight, Cher opened up to "Extra's" Lauren Sanchez about the hounding paparazzi and how her son Chaz Bono handles it.
"I hate it," the megastar said of the paps. "It's sometimes really scary... for that moment you feel so vulnerable because you're not sure if they're going to kidnap you, kill you or take your picture. And they're so mean-spirited. It's not like it was when I first started."
The most powerful women in show business gathered Monday night at Glamour's Women of the Years Awards, including superstar Cher who was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
The singer/actress joked with "Extra's" AJ Calloway about being the recipient of such an honor. "It's a strange thing for me. I've never had one of these things before and I always think... It's like the kiss of death when you get honored for a lifetime achievement," she laughed. "It's like okay, it's over, this is your lifetime and you've achieved whatever you're going to achieve."
Check out all the celebrity interviews from the red carpet:
Also honored at the event was actress Julia Roberts, who confirmed rumors that she's working on a new show for Oprah's OWN network. "Well, now that she [Oprah] has her own network, that leaves a nice, open playing field. We are working on a special about extraordinary mothers around the world."
Superstar Cher is dishing on everything in the December issue of Vanity Fair -- from how she's dealing with her son Chaz Bono's gender change, to ex-husband Sonny and her family's past with drugs.
Chaz, 41, born Chastity Bono, underwent a sex change operation last year -- and Cher admits that she still has a difficult time remembering her former little girl is now male. "She's a very smart girl -- boy!" the singer corrected. "This is where I get into trouble. ... I still don't remember to call her 'him.'"
Singer Christina Aguilera makes her feature film debut in "Burlesque," playing a small-town girl who goes to Los Angeles and finds her place in a neo-burlesque club run by a former dancer (Cher). Watch the star-studded trailer!
"Extra" caught up with Cher, Harrison Ford and many more at Thursday night's AFI Life Achievement Awards, honoring legendary director Mike Nichols.
Actress and singer Cher can trace her movie fame back to her first Oscar-nominated role in "Silkwood," directed by Nichols.
In an exclusive interview, "Extra's" Lauren Sanchez caught up with Cher backstage at her Colosseum concert at Las Vegas' Caesars Palace. The star dished about her new film, "Burlesque" with Christina Aguilera, and talked about her body -- and the possibility of a new concert tour.
When asked if she thinks she'll ever tour again, Cher got a little tongue-tied, telling Lauren, "Oy... oy... please oy, oy, um... I keep hoping 'Burlesque' is a hit so I'll have two new numbers to do." Still evasive, she does at least admit, "Well it's kind of a yes. I guess it's almost a yes, but it's not quite a yes." Is that clear? The woman sitting with Cher is her best friend and choreographer, Doriana Sanchez.
Will she ever return?
"We're going to cross that bridge when we get to it... I love the show and in fact, I'm going to do some rallying for my brother right now," Hough, 21, told Seacrest.
The aspiring country singer has turned her focus from dancing to acting and singing. She's currently filming "Burlesque" (out November 2010) opposite Cher and Christina Aguilera.
"It's so awesome. We just shot last week for the first couple days, and basically I'm completely battered and bruised, and it looks like I have rug burn all over my body," Hough said.
She also admitted that while she's "technically" single, she has nothing but love for her ex, Chuck Wicks.
"He's great, he's amazing... we went [to the CMAs] together," she said.
He may even make an appearance on her second album, for which she's currently writing songs.
"There's a few personal things on there," admitted Hough, who earlier this year was named ACM's Top New Artist.
Superstar Cher's Malibu mansion is on the market, and this piece of property has it all -- and it's priced to move!
The home is 14,000 sq. ft. with six bedrooms, seven baths, a movie theater, tennis court and pool. The original asking price was an incredible $45 million, but Cher has slashed the price to a much more affordable $41 million.
