Cher - Cher not ready to retire

Cher can't imagine retiring any time soon.

The 67-year-old singer has been at the forefront of the music industry for the past 50 years, but despite rumours her new album 'Closer To The Truth' could be her last, she insists she still 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 embarked on a 'Farewell' tour, but she is going back on the road next year because she feels the time is right.

She explained: ''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.''
