No make-up leaves Cher looking just like... Ozzy Osbourne

(dailymail.co.uk) - If only Cher really could turn back time.

The ageing singer confessed to spending a "small fortune" on plastic surgery to look fresh faced, but instead she stepped out yesterday looking just like haggard rocker Ozzy Osbourne.

With her round tinted glasses, straggly centre-parted hair and a make-up free face, she appeared every inch the Black Sabbath frontman's doppelganger.

The 61-year-old has admitted to a facelift, as well as procedures to improve her teeth and breasts, and has even described herself as a "plastic surgery poster girl."

She has said she felt pressure to look youthful in a bid to keep up in the highly competitive pop industry.

Cher, who with her then husband Sonny Bono made number one in Britain and America with I Got You Babe in 1965, continued to have chart success well into her fifties.

Her career won its biggest boost with the 1998 success of the song Believe.

She has said: "Everyone says I am terrified of getting old, but the truth is that in my job becoming old and becoming extinct are one and the same thing.

"And becoming obsolete and useless is completely unattractive to me."
