Cher on Amanda Bynes and being a mentor

Pop icon Cher has opened up about her spat with actress Amanda Bynes and about her efforts to mentor her fans and followers.

The 67-year-old singer explained why she apologised for offending Bynes on Twitter even though the actress called her “ugly” and “a flop”.

Speaking to E! News, Cher said: ''I never understood the thing about not saying you're sorry because it's so doesn't take any time and it just dissolves all the bad feelings. It just lets it go, and we can't hold on to that kind of stuff. It makes you sick.''

Aside from her diplomacy in that particular situation, Cher also claims that she feels like a mother to her fans, saying that she sympathises with the younger generation and hopes to help them cope with the world as it is today.

''It's a rough time in history for kids. Sex didn't kill you when I was young and people weren't trying to blow up buildings,” she said.

''I feel a lot of compassion for these young kids that are growing up that don't really understand exactly what's going on. It's really rough. That's why I do a lot of tweeting...I feel kind of like a mother. It's something that gives them a little insight into things and it doesn't make them think that all grownups are the enemy.''
