Cher On Her Long Awaited Return To The Stage - "I'm A Chicken"

Considering she’s one of the foremost fashion and music icons in the world, we doubt very much that Cher is, as she describes herself, “a chicken”. But, talking to The Hollywood Reporter, the 67-year-old admitted how scared she was at taking to the stage for the first time in over a decade.

The legendary singer was performing at The Voice finale, showing off a new track from her upcoming album. "It's the first time I've been onstage or singing live -- the last time I think was with Tina [Turner] and I think that was about five or seven years ago," she explains. "And before that -- I can't even remember the last time I was on TV before that." Needless to say, she belted out Woman's World - off her upcoming album, Closer to the Truth – with the kind of audacity and aplomb that launched her to stardom, but that’s not to say there weren’t any butterflies. "It's very exciting and it makes you feel elated, but it's also kind of scary. And I'm a big chicken anyway," she added.

Closer to the Truth, which will be hitting stores on September 24, is Cher’s first album since 2002's Living Proof. "I actually did a couple of different things in this album," she says. "I ventured into places I haven't gone and I really enjoyed that. I kind of took some chances in this album and then when they turned out to be good, I was really happy."
