Cher is not ready to retire. The Goddess of Pop, who is sixty seven years old says there is no retirement for her coming up any time soon as she still wants to achieve some things.She just can’t imagine retiring, the star has been singing for the past fifty years. There are rumours spread that her new album ‘Closer To The Truth’ could be her last, however she explains that she hasn’t reached the limit of her ambitions.
Quizzed whether she would release another record, Cher said:
”I guess it depends on what happens with this one. I won’t be doing this forever for sure but I do have dreams to fulfill that I haven’t even dreamt yet. There’s no end to idea and things you want to do.”
In 2003, Cher did embark on a ‘Farewell’ tour, but next year she will hit the road again, she is feeling the time is right.
”I really thought it was [my last tour]. It didn’t seem like I had anything else to say. But I really like this album and if I don’t do it now, I’ll never do it. Even though its 11 years since my last record, I’ve been doing it for 50 years, so it feels natural.”
Cher also lamented how much the industry has changed since her debut, especially the way it is more difficult to have a private life.
She told Britain’s Hello! Magazine:
”It was a different industry back when I started out. In those days people were much more polite and they weren’t trying to get a picture of you looking crazy.
”People didn’t wait behind your garbage cans or inside your gates or jump on your care like they do now. You have no privacy as everyone has a cameraphone so you have to give up part of your life for it.”
