Cher has no retirement plans

Cher sees no end to her decades-long career - because she wouldn't know what to do with herself if she were not performing.

The star is set to return to the Las Vegas stage in February with her headlining act at the Colosseum at Caesar's Palace.

And, at 62, the 'Believe' hitmaker is convinced she's still got years of performing ahead of her.

When asked of her plans to quit the show she says: "And do what? Nothing? What would I do? I'm not comparing myself to this but (it's like) if someone said: 'Oh Picasso, you've painted so many pictures, get some frames and go home.'

"I'll do my work as long as I can do it, as long as people show up."
