Cher is never one to mince words, a tradition she continued by slagging the 2010 film "Burlesque" in a new interview with the Los Angeles Times.

"It wasn't a good film," Cher, who won Best Actress for "Moonstruck" at the 1988 Academy Awards, told the Times. "It had a few good moments, but I didn't even like my performance that much. [...] What, I don't have a brain? I'm old but I'm still pretty on top of everything."

Indeed, Cher's Twitter account is a font of current events and pop culture musings. (She was blasting the government shutdown on Monday night.) The 67-year-old singer recently used the social networking platform to clear up some comments she had previously made to USA Today about Miley Cyrus.

"I'm not old-fashioned," Cher told the publication. "She could have come out naked, and if she'd just rocked the house, I would have said, 'You go, girl.' It just wasn't done well. She can't dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn't great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don't stick out your tongue if it's coated."

Cher later walked back the comments over a series of tweets:

When she isn't opining, Cher is still recording. "Closer to the Truth," her first album since 2001, was release on Sept. 20. According to the Times, she also shot a video segment for the upcoming Academy Awards, which will air on March 2, 2014. Ellen DeGeneres is host. (No further information about what Cher did for the telecast was provided by the Times.)
