Cher On Amanda Bynes Feud: 'I Never Understood The Thing About Not Saying You're Sorry'

Posted: Updated:

Cher opened up about her Twitter feud with Amanda Bynes in a recent interview, saying she is the type of person who is willing to say she's sorry.

The music legend sat down for an interview with E! News recently and opened up about the trials of celebrity stardom today. She also discussed how she uses social media as an outreach to young Hollywood.

"I feel a lot of compassion for these young kids that are growing up that don't really understand exactly what's going on. It's really rough," she said. "That's why I do a lot of tweeting… I feel kind of like a mother. It's something that gives them a little insight into things and it doesn't make them think that all grownups are the enemy."

Then the conversation turned to her tiff with the former Nickelodeon star. Last month, Bynes called Cher "ugly and a flop," which prompted the 67-year-old to ask one Twitter whistleblower "Who's that?" Once the singer found out who Bynes was, she immediately apologized to the 27-year-old for throwing shade and said it was unintentional.

"I never understood the thing about not saying you're sorry because it's so easy," she explained to E! News. "It doesn't take any time and it just dissolves all the bad feelings. It just lets it go, and we can't hold on to that kind of stuff. It makes you sick."

Cher has had some Twitter feuds in the past. She got into it with Donald Trump last year after she blasted Macy's for not dropping the real estate mogul from the store's advertising campaign. Back in 2011, she and Nicki Minaj had a mini beef over a line in the rapper's song that apparently dissed her. Minaj got an apology; Trump didn't.

Other celebrities have not been so quick to tread lightly with the troubled former actress. After Bynes dissed Rihanna in a tweet back in May, the "Right Now" singer responded: "This is what happens when you cancel intervention."
