People can’t quite tell how Cher feels about Dua Lipa.
On Wednesday, a Twitter user shared a short clip of the 27-year-old singer, writing, “Dua Lipa, the Cher of our generation.”
When another user quote-tweeted that sentiment, adding, “So much truth in one Tweet,” none other than Cher herself responded.
How many yrs are in a generation 🤔

Many fans were confused by the comment, though some took it as an insult directed at Lipa.

Some also defended Cher’s legendary status.
It's wild that people are really disrespecting Cher, the queen of longevity.
People wonder why some legends don't fool the newer artists. Part of it is because fans stay trying to push newer artists as the next [insert legend's name here], when said legend is still making music. https://t.co/DVqH44QKsd

prime example of why fans should stop comparisons and pitting down two women for entertainment 😭 https://t.co/mvenx8pmkb

Props to her for this. I find the “they’re the new (insert artist)” so offensive especially when the original artist is still alive. https://t.co/fJxixFVVXt
