Long before Lady Gaga was shocking people with her chameleon-like image transformations, Cher was making jaws drop with her Mohawk inspired-head dresses and skimpy patent-leather getups. Now, the 67-year-old icon has done it again, going for a striking platinum-blond look on the cover of her latest album, "Closer to the Truth."
On Thursday, the seemingly ageless star tweeted a link to the alluring photo that will grace the cover of her 26th (yup, 26th!) studio album. In the photo she gazes seductively into the camera while wearing a revealing off-white dress.
She also sports some striking looks in her new video for the song "Woman's World," including a wig made of shredded newspapers, a strawberry-blond, frizzed out hairdo and skin-tight leopard-skin pants. It also features women of all shapes and sizes dancing and lip-syncing to her dance-pop number about empowering women.
Speaking to ABC News earlier this year, Cher said she thinks her new solo album is one of her best efforts yet. "I would say, truthfully, I’m not a huge Cher fan, and I’ve said this a million times, but I think this is probably the best album I’ve ever done," she said.
She added that it's all about "being fabulous," which the pop star obviously knows a thing or two about.
"Closer to the Truth" is due out Sept. 30.
