Here's a look from the red carpet as Cher arrives for the Hollywood premier of "Burlesque". The 64-year-old mother of all divas wore a glittery, black mini dress with a plunging neckline that showed off gorgeous gams. True, she's looking a bit more nip-tucked these days, but WTF, she's Cher, she can do whatever she wants. As she once said, "If I want to put my tits on my back, it's nobody's business."
The Oscar/Golden Globe/Grammy/Emmy winner says she took the role of club owner, Tess, because she wanted to do a musical. She reveals that she was offered "Mamma Mia" with Meryl Streep, but had to turn it down because of her never-ending farewell tour.
Christine Aguilera had already been signed to do the the film and insisted that producers approach Cher. She says of the legend, "I would drink her bath water." Okay, that's kinda gross, but we get the point.
Also on hand were Cher's son Chaz Bono and long-time girlfriend Jennifer Elia.
