During a December 2022 appearance on "The Kelly Clarkson Show," Cher opened up about what it's like to date a younger man when Clarkson asked her if older men are "intimidated" by her.

“Yeah, if I hadn't met younger men in my life, I would have never had a date because older men just didn’t like me all that much," Cher explained.

The "Believe" singer noted that "younger men don't care if you're funny or outrageous or do stupid things" so she always felt more free to be herself.

“On paper it’s kind of ridiculous but in real life we get along great,” Cher told Clarkson of her new romance on her talk show. “He’s fabulous, and I don’t give men qualities that they don’t deserve. But he’s very kind, he’s very smart. He’s very talented and he’s really funny so, and I think he’s quite handsome.”
