"I've always been a huge fan of Nicki, she's like number one for me," Cher revealed to Pop Crush this week. "I really feel like Nicki brought that vibe in.

"No one was doing what she was doing, and then she came in and it was kind of one of those things where people were like, 'Woah'," Cher explained. "She just changed pop music. And she did! There's no denying it.

"She is someone I definitely look up to. I admire how brave she is," the 'With Ur Love' singer went on to sya. "She's kind of got that attitude like, do what you feel like doing [and] be who you are. I love that."
