On her challenges with the new album:
"Getting into the studio. I haven't made a record in 11 years. But I think my record company was just about to blow me off, 'cause you know, I would have. They just said do it or don't. So the first thing we did was 'Woman's World' and they seemed to like that. Then I pretty much over-recorded. I'm really enjoying, but I have to say that it's a little bit different. I'm singing higher notes and I'm singing better, which is kind of freaky, because I should be having to bring down my keys, but these are the highest song I've sung."
On her nerves on stage:
"The other night before I went on The Voice, I thought, Oh, this is too crazy. Get yourself to a home. This is insane. I was really nervous. The song ['Woman's World'] is hard because there's no place to take a breath. It's some sort of zealous thing - there are literally five breaths in the whole song. Plus, I haven't sung in front of anybody. I haven't been on television to sing live since, I don't know, McKinley was president."
On her outspoken Twitter posts:
"Sometimes I think that I shouldn't do it as much. When you're by yourself, it seems so familiar and you can get into so much trouble. God knows I have. I either sound like Einstein or some sort of Cro-Magnon man. It's dangerous for me, but I end up saying what I want and I'm not so sure that certain people can do that. And sometimes I have to go, Nah, Cher, you can't. I'll wake up in the middle of the night and have something that I'll want to say. My mother wanted to tweet and I went, 'No, the absolute answer to that, Mother, is no.' I'd have to leave the universe if my 87-year-old mother got to tweet."
