11 pictures that prove Cher is in fact an Irish Mammy

Trust us on this one.

POP ICON CHER is 67 and still going with the kind of energy that would put most of us to shame.

She’s just announced she’ll be performing her new single on The Voice in the US next week, her first time performing on TV in over a decade.

That single cover is quite something isn’t it?

The news of her return had us thinking that despite all her high-jinks over the years her no nonsense attitude reminds us of someone.

The Irish Mammy.

Don’t believe us?

Here is why Cher is basically an honourary Irish Mammy.

1. She can convey mild annoyance with just a look

That’s the kind of “I’m really irritated by your presence” look your mother would give when you really got on her wick:

Cher is having none of you.

None of you.

2. She knows when you are just acting the fool altogether

Cher is basically saying “Woudja stop, I’ve had it up to my eyes with your carry on today” here.

3. Wearing an outfit you are mortified by is par for the course.

Look we aren’t ageist and if 60-something Cher wants to wear a silver mini-skirt we say more power to her.

But at the same time we feel like this picture is a solid example of what it’s like when you are pictured with your mam when she’s wearing something mortifying.

4. She’ll do something mad with her hair and get defensive about it

“What do you mean bright orange doesn’t look good on me? Are you saying I look bad? MY OWN CHILDREN HAVE FORSAKEN ME” etc etc

5.  Those mortifying outfit moments will happen at a moment’s notice

“Oh jaypurs I’m very hot now, I’ll have to take off me coat, sorry lads”

6. The “I’m not angry just disappointed in you” look

The kind of look that makes you feel ten times worse than a proper shouting match with your mother.

7. She’ll catch you out on any messing with just one quick look.

“Oh is that how it is is it? Well I’m having none of it”

8. Sometimes the weather will do strange things to her hair

9. She will insist on getting pictures with celebs no matter who they are

“RONAN! KEATING! Well, we’ll have to get a picture together so”

10. Her Halloween costumes are the stuff of legend

Remember the time your mother dressed like Elvis?

Or was that just us?

11. Ultimately she is full of laughs

And you really love her to bits.

Especially when she makes faces like these and you remember your childhood games and such.
