Cher is reciprocating Taylor Swift’s “You Need To Calm Down” shoutout.
In Swift’s brand-new music video for the single, Cher’s iconic quote, “Mom, I am a rich man,” appears on-screen and on Tuesday, the pop icon, 73, shared the frame on Twitter causing a fangirl moment from Swift.
The now-famous quote is from a 1996 interview with “Dateline”, Cher was talking about her mother, who advised her to get married: “My mom said to me, ‘You know sweetheart, one day you should settle down and marry a rich man,’ and I said, ‘Mom, I am a rich man.'”
In response to Cher’s subtle shoutout, Swift retweeted, writing, “When you have a song about being calm and the video has a Cher quote in it and she posts it so henceforth you are not able to be calm anymore.”
Swift and the new track inspired a large wave of LGBTQ donations from Swifties. Many donated $13 to the organization which supports the proper representation of LGBTQ people in media, in honour of the singer’s lucky number.
