Music icon Cher performed during the 2017 Billboard Music Awards at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. She sang to thousands of stunned fans — and probably made a few new ones in the process.
The singer turned 71 on May 20, but you’d never know from looking at her. She stunned the largely millennial audience with two performances, donning two equaling revealing outfits: one for each of her hit songs “Believe” and “If I Could Turn Back Time.”
Cher had her left breast exposed with a mere heart covering her nipple. The entire outfit was a shimmering-chain bodysuit. It was barely there, but just showed how much confidence the star has.
Her second outfit featured her massive, signature curly wig, complemented by a matching black motorcycle jacket, revealing body suit, and knee-high boots.
The performance preceded her acceptance of the Billboard Music Artist Achievement Award.
“Thank you. So, I wanted to do what I do since I was 4 years old, and I’ve been doing it for 53 years. That is not an applause thing; I’m 71 yesterday! I can do a five-minute plank,” Cher joked, after receiving the award from presenter Gwen Stefani.
Cher has won an Oscar, Emmy, a Grammy, three Golden Globe, and three Billboard Awards. She has sold 100 million records worldwide, but when it came down to it, she had her mother to thank.
“I want to thank my mom because, when I was really young, my mom said, ‘You’re not gonna be the smartest, you’re not gonna be the prettiest, you’re not gonna be the most talented, but you’re gonna be special.’
“I’ve had so much help. I just have to say that I think that luck has so much to do with my success — I think it was mostly luck and a little bit of something thrown in,” Cher added in her acceptance speech.
