What better way to make your idol proud than to pay them a very public tribute?
Kardashian West, 36, responded with her own tweet, telling Cher, 71, “I love you!!!!”
Earlier this week the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star debuted an entirely new look with her Jackie Kennedy Onassis photoshoot for Interview magazine.
She later dressed as the “Believe” singer who she called her “number one style icon,” copying Cher’s notoriously long locks and feathery lashes, wearing a beaded dress with fringe that you could envision the performer sashaying in at Studio 54.
“She’s always had the sickest style, I’m obsessed with her,” Kardashian West told the magazine of the performer. “To think that she was wearing these sheer dresses in the ’70s and just what people must have thought back then.”
While Kardashian West happily channeled the singer’s style for the magazine, she said she strives to be herself.
“At the end of the day I still have to be me,” she said. “If doing sexy shoots makes me feel confident, then I’m okay with it. That might not be appropriate for some people, and there’s a time and a place. There’s certain things I’ll show my kids and certain things I won’t show my kids. But generally I am okay with it. In moderation.”
She also cheers on other moms to do what makes them feel good.
“More power to the moms that look really good, work really hard, do what they can so that they still feel sexy, still feel good about themselves,” she said. “I don’t think for a second that because you become a mom you can’t be sexy any more.”
