Watch This Vintage Clip Of Cher Explaining Why Men Aren't Necessary

"A man is not a necessity, a man is a luxury.”

It’s common knowledge that Cher is a bad b***h, but a vintage viral video of the diva has demonstrated just how badass she truly is. 

In a 1996 interview with Jane Pauley, above, the singer and Oscar-winning actress declares that “a man is not a necessity, a man is a luxury.” 

“Did you mean that to sound mean and bitter?” Pauley asks. 

“Oh not at all... I think men are the coolest! But you don’t really need them to live.” 

But the most amazing part of the interview is when Cher tells a story about her mother asking her to “settle down and marry a rich man.” 

“I said ‘mom, I am a rich man.’” Slay. 

Watch the full clip above.
