Cher has long been known as the queen of reinvention.
The 70-year-old Oscar- and Grammy-winning singer/actress gave her most famous hit a reboot on The Late Late Show on Thursday night, remaking her 1965 hit with late husband Sonny Bono, thanks to a 2016 social media polish.
Taking the stage in red-sequined minidress draped with a black and white fuzzy vest, Cher was dismayed when host James Corden sauntered out in a Cher wig and leather ensemble. “James, what are you doing?” she asked dumbfounded as he flipped his raven locks. “Why are you dressed as Cher?”
“Well, it’s a Sonny and Cher song and I just thought that I … would be Cher,” he explained. “Yeah, but out of the two of us what makes you possibly think that you could be Cher?” she wondered. “I mean … I’m literally Cher.”
Since he’d already committed to it, they went ahead and performed the revamped, “I Got You Bae.” The song got an update, with lyrics including: “They say we’re young and we don’t know/ How to find love without using your phone,” as well as “Well I don’t know if all that’s true/ Cause you swiped me and, baby, I swiped you” and the hilariously cringe-y “When I text you an eggplant/ You’ll send me a nude on Snapchat.”
