Fans of the singer have taken to the comment section to celebrate the new milestone with her. “Dancing in the street on Believe surrounded by people aware that you’re superior and eternal was probably the best way to celebrate your birthday. Happy birthday to my favorite human,” a fan wrote. “Miss you so much, LOVE YOU ALWAYS❤️.”

“Love you, Cher! Happy birthday, you’re so wonderful,” another person commented. “The best icon, legend, diva, queen. Much love.”
Some other fans gave their own thoughts about Cher’s discussion about age. “I’ve always thought that “old” is when we no longer have dreams…only regrets,” a tweep wrote. “A variation of the John Barrymore quote ‘A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams.'”
“Age is a number. When you open your heart (like I know you do) we are ageless,” another wrote. “The spirit hasn’t got an age.”
“~Numbers never tell u your age,” a third comment read. “Enjoy your workout! ❤️.”
Cher had previously given her thoughts about aging
In an interview with The Guardian in 2020, she disclosed that she does not like the concept of aging. “What, I’m going to say I like it? No, I don’t. Any woman who is honest will say it’s not as much fun,” Cher said. “When I was working on the road we used to work two shows a night and then go out dancing all night long,” but these days, “it’s like we’ve got to rest because you’ve got another night.”
Cher also acknowledged her plastic surgery and the significance of exercise in maintaining her public presence, attributing her fitness level as a contributing factor. “You don’t pay bucks to stand and look at someone. They’ve got to deliver something,” she admitted. “I’ve worked my whole life to keep my strength in my body. There are 20-year-old girls who can’t do what I do.”
