A video of Cher being interviewed by Jane Pauley in 1996 has gone viral on Facebook recently because of Cher's perfect, infallible sass.
In it, Cher explains what she meant when she said men are not "a necessity" for women.
But Cher explained that it isn't a statement that's meant to offend.
And then she recalled this story...
And her perfect response to her mother.
I'm going to have this tattooed on the inside of my eyelids so it's the first and the last thing I see every day.
Cher: fighting misogynistic expectations of women for seven decades.
