Los Angeles - Cher claims she hasn't looked in a mirror in years.The Believe hitmaker admits she is "not a confident person" and hates getting older.The 68-year-old star told the August/September issue of AARP The Magazine: "Every once in a while I think, 'Jesus, you're so old! How did this happen?' I haven't looked in the mirror in years. The only time I was happy with the way I looked was when I was, like, 40 to 45."Older men rarely liked me. If it wasn't for younger men, I would never have a date."She added: "I'm not a confident person, and I'm really not a Cher fan. But I want to make sure I'll do a great job, so I go balls to the wall and try to do every single thing I can."But Cher has no plans to step back from the spotlight and retire.She said: "I don't intend to step aside. This is the first generation that's said, 'We're not going to roll over and play dead because we're a certain age.' "Meanwhile, the Strong Enough singer says she initially struggled when her 45-year-old son Chaz Bono - formerly Chastity Bono - first began transitioning from a woman into a man in 2008.She said: "He'd forgotten to erase his old outgoing message, I thought, 'I'm never going to hear my daughter's voice again."Asked if she had any advice for other parents going through similar experiences, she said: "Have faith and hold on. It's scary because you don't know how you're going to feel."
