Cher accepted a "Legend Award" from the UK's Attitude magazine over the weekend.
She joked that "of course" the first gay men she knew were hairdressers when she was a child and her mother had them over, adding that she didn't know what "gay" meant at the time:
"In the beginning, I actually thought that 'gay' was code for 'fun'.”
Added Cher: "Gay men especially...they either love you or they don't even notice that you're on the planet. And I think what they like — I think what you guys like — is you like a strong woman that's having a breakdown constantly, and that certainly is me. Judy Garland's got nothing on me."
