Cher knows you want to see her on RuPaul’s Drag Race, and has declared that she’ll have to appear alongside longtime friend Mama Ru.

“I’m going to have to go on it at some point,” Cher told Entertainment Weekly.

Cher said she’s well aware of fans’ “amazing” hunger for her to appear on the show. She said she’s longtime friends with RuPaul, going back decades.

“I’ve known him for a long time. He’s such a cool guy,” Cher said.

“I would consider [a guest spot]! I have watched it. He’s smart and I love him.

“He’s the coolest guy ever. What he’s been able to do is amazing.”

On Drag Race season six, Cher’s son Chaz Bono took part in an interview challenge alongside Cher’s mother, Georgia Holt.

Drag Race All-Stars 1 winner Chad Michaels, a pro Cher impersonator, portrayed the singer on Snatch Game in Season 4.

Then in Season 10, the queens competed in a song-and-dance challenge tribute, Cher: The Unauthorized Rusical, in the gay icon’s honour.
