Cher Copes With Her Fifties

May 15, 1998

NEW YORK (AP) _ Cher wants to be done with those tattoos already.

She’s hoping the monthly laser treatments she is getting will remove the once-notorious tattoos, Cher says in the May 25 issue of People magazine.

``When I got them, no one else had them,″ she said. ``Now everybody has them. They’re not so fabulous anymore.″

With her 52nd birthday coming up next Wednesday, the singer-actress shared some thoughts about getting older and her lackluster love life.

``I hate my fifties,″ she said. As for love, it’s ``harder to find when you’re older ... but I guess if grass can grow through cement, love can find you at every time in your life.″

She said she still has sobbing fits over the death of Sonny Bono, her ex-husband and singing partner who died Jan. 5 in a skiing accident.

``Even in death, I don’t feel separated from him yet,″ said Cher, who will be the host of CBS’ ``Sonny & Me: Cher Remembers,″ a one-hour tribute to the entertainer-turned-politician Bono.
