Cher’s Walking Struggles After Thanksgiving Day Parade Spark Concern

The internet can be a harsh place, especially for female celebrities. Cher, the iconic singer at the age of 77, recently faced negative comments and unwarranted criticism about her age. Fans expressed worry after seeing her difficulty in walking following her participation in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Cher’s performance during the parade was a treat for everyone, as she wowed the audience with her hit song ‘DJ Play a Christmas Song.’ The song had debuted at an impressive No. 3 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart in October 2023. In a recent interview with Billboard, Cher explained that her festive songs, just like Mariah Carey’s, are not solely focused on Christmas but are simply great songs.

After the parade, Cher was spotted leaving her hotel in New York City. Entertainment photographer Elder Ordonez captured a clip of the ‘Believe’ hitmaker, dressed in an all-black outfit with matching boots, being assisted by a bodyguard as she made her way to a waiting car. The clip was shared on Instagram and garnered attention from fans and critics alike.

Some Instagram users expressed concern about Cher’s walking difficulty. However, many loyal fans quickly came to her defense, reminding others that Cher is 77 years old and it is natural to face challenges at that age. Her age-defying looks have often been praised, and she has openly discussed the topic of aging on social media.

In a tweet on X (formerly Twitter), Cher expressed her confusion about feeling old and questioned when she would start to feel her age. She also mentioned in a Good Morning Britain interview that aging hadn’t fully hit her yet, jokingly stating that she can’t believe she will be 80 at some point, but intends to continue wearing jeans and maintaining her signature long hair. Cher credits good genetics in her family as her secret to looking youthful.

Regardless of the obstacles that come with aging, Cher continues to inspire with her incredible talent and unwavering spirit. Let’s remember that age is just a number, and Cher proves that age should never be a barrier to pursuing our passions and enjoying life to the fullest.

So, the next time we catch ourselves doubting our abilities due to age, let’s take a page out of Cher’s book and keep pushing forward. After all, who knows? Maybe we’ll be in great shape and rocking the stage like Cher when we reach her age!
