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 [in person] 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.''
