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.

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.”
