Apparently, Cher can turn back time, because we’re now living in some moment before her Farewell tour.

She just announced a residency in Las Vegas in February and May, and additional shows will be scheduled later.

In order to promote the upcoming extravaganza, she popped ’round to the TODAY show to touch upon subjects as varied as Donald Trump and growing older.

Here is some of the wisdom she imparted:

On the possibility of a Trump presidency: 

I feel like I’m yelling ‘fire,’ and no one is listening…I care about the country, and I know that the people that are following Trump, they care about the country, too. But I don’t think it’s the same country I care about.”

On why she’s backing Clinton:

She’s done some things that I’m sure she wishes she hadn’t done. And she’s done things — I can’t back every play. But I think that if she has the chance to be a great president, she will rise to that occasion.”

On turning 70:

I just don’t know how to accept it. I don’t want to either. But I don’t really know how to. I look in the mirror and I see this old lady looking back at me. I have no idea how she got there. If I put 70 candles on my cake I would blow my brains out…”

On touring: 

 The older you are the harder it is.”
