Cher Dressed as Elvis Presley, ca. 1990s

Cher once revealed that she had been a fan of Presley since she was a child. “When I was 10 years old, my mom took me to the Pan Pacific to see Elvis. I just — I really loved him. And then when I got older — not this old — but older, he invited me to Las Vegas.”

“One of his people called and said, ‘Would you like to come up for the weekend?’ And I was so terrified that I couldn’t do it,” she shared.

Cher said Presley’s personal struggles gave her pause to meet up with him. “He was on the downside of himself. And I don't mean like handsome, (or) whatever. He was on the downside of the drugs and stuff like that.”

Appearing on “The Jennifer Hudson Show,” Cher was asked to explain why she didn’t date Elvis Presley, after previously revealing in a separate interview that their paths almost crossed.

“It was because I just was — I was nervous and I knew of the people around him, and it wasn’t that they were bad people, it’s just that I was kind of nervous of his reputation,” the singer said.

“I’m really shy when I’m not working and kind of shy around men,” she expressed. “And the reason I go out with young men is because men my age or older — well, now they’re all dead — but before they just never, they were always terrified to approach me and younger men were the only ones that [did].”
