It's hard to believe but Cher turned 72 this year. 72. But when most 72 year olds are well into retirement and watching daytime TV, Cher has instead decided she wants to tour Australia in 2018. And after her stunning performance at this year's Mardi Gras, we can't wait to witness the phenomenon that is Cher.

I Got You Babe - Sonny and Cher Top of the Pops 1965

Any list about Cher has to include where it all began for her. I got you babe was a worldwide hit and launched her and Sonny Bono into superstardom. If you haven't heard it on the radio, you've probably heard it on television or film. A timeless classic that will get even the most jaded couples singing along in duet.



That time she wore a massive headdress to the Oscars

A defining part of Cher's personality is her rebellious streak and not being afraid to give the middle finger to the powers that be. Her 1986 Bob Mackie "dress," featuring a feathered headdress, was rumored to have been a response to an Academy memo to nominees about the preferred dress code. Or maybe it was for snubbing her role in her 1985 move The Mask. Her response? Well see for yourself below.



Cher winning the Oscar for Best Actress

Speaking of the Oscar's. Cher did what most singers can only dream about and won a bloody Oscar. Not content with being nominated for Best Supporting Actress in 1984 for Silkwood, Cher would return to the Oscar's in 1988 for her powerful performance in the classic romance Moonstruck. Here's her acceptance speech.



Calling David Letterman an a**hole on The Tonight Show

She hasn't always had the stage to herself. Cher clearly wasn't a fan of David Letterman, avoiding doing his show for many years. When she finally came on The Tonight Show, David Letterman, proceeded to do what David Letterman does best, make his guests uncomfortable and the but of the joke for the entertainment of his audience. Cher duly responded by calling him an a**hole.
