Cher is one of the greatest pop culture icons of the past 50 years. So what does she think of the pop culture icons of 2010? In a new interview with 20/20, the singer-actress admits that she doesn't understand the appeal of reality stars like Snooki and Kim Kardashian.
"I kind of like people that do something, that are not just famous for -- I'm not sure what," the reclusive star tells ABC News anchor Cynthia McFadden.
"What I know about the Kardashians you could put on the head of a pin and still have room for the Lord's prayer," Cher says when asked about the fame-hungry family. "I know nothing about them."
As for Snooki, Cher says she once got a bobblehead doll of her in a swag bag -- but she's not at all interested in her show.
"My sister was telling me about these New Jersey kids," says the 62-year-old performer. "And the way she was describing it was so horrible, I thought, why would I want to (see that)?"
It's pretty funny to see the mega-talented Cher so baffled by our national love of untalented reality stars. But she admits that once upon a time, there was one reality show that she actually enjoyed!
"A long time ago I used to watch this really sweet reality show called Jon and Kate Plus Eight," Cher says. "And then I leave the country for six months, I come back and the whole thing has just blown up in everyone's face, and I just thought, well, this is not what I signed up for. And I thought it was sweet. I liked the babies."
So did we, Cher. So did we.
The full Cher interview airs Friday night on 20/20. The Oscar-winning actress is promoting Burlesque, which hits theaters on Nov. 24 and marks her first major film role in over a decade.
