Cher, known as the ‘Goddess of Pop,’ has now claimed that she's not a fan of her voice, even if most people are.

Actor and singer Cher may be known as the ‘Goddess of Pop.’ But the 77-year-old songstress has confessed in an interview to Paper that she's not a fan of her voice. In fact, she claimed that she sounds like somewhere between a woman and a man. (Also Read: Cher accused of abducting son Elijah Allman amidst marriage reconciliation with Marie King)

What Cher said

“It doesn’t sound like a man, it doesn’t sound like a woman. I’m somewhere more in-between. I have this strange style. I do what you do when you can’t hold a note: I don’t pronounce my R’s. I guess some consonants are hard to sing, so I just gotta leave them open," said Cher in the interview.

She said that had it been left for her to judge her own voice, she wouldn't have given it as much love or attention as her fans. “I mean, people seem to like it and I’m happy as a clam, but I wouldn’t have picked it. I liked it on my mother and it’s definitely my mom’s voice. My mom’s is softer, mine is edgier — different, but the same, but I don’t think I would have picked it,” she added in the interview.

In another interview to Entertainment Tonight, she reiterated that she doesn't like singing around in the voice because she doesn't like her voice.
