Cher has big plans for 2012, but don’t call it a comeback. The pop goddess has rarely slowed down in her 49-year career. Cher began recording her 26th studio album as of 2011, and plans to release “The Greatest Thing,” a duet with Lady Gaga, as its first single. The Armenian beauty won’t stop there. Cher announced via Twitter in February that she will also tour beginning in September 2012, her first tour in seven years. While she upholds her music and acting career, the mom of two still manages to be there for her kids. Not only was Cher Chaz Bono’s biggest fan while he was on Dancing With The Stars, but she also recently attended the GLAAD Media Awards with her son. Cher is such a supporter of Chaz and LGBT rights, she’s currently in a feud with Mitt Romney and Donald Trump over the issue.
The singer and actress has so much to be proud of. From her beginning as part of the pop rock duo Sonny & Cher, to becoming a television personality on her own variety show, to her acclaimed roles in films like Mask and Moonstruck, Cher is definitely a triple threat. She’s also had quite the love life — she’s been linked to everyone from Elvis Presley to Richie Sambora. Today Cher turns 66 years old, and we decided to turn back time and take a look at how she’s held onto that flawless physique and radiant beauty (with a little help from her surgeon friends) through the years.
