Cher had a smile on her face as she opened up about her new boyfriend on tonight’s episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show. The 76-year-old singer – who confirmed she is dating 36-year-old Alexander “AE” Edwards – poked fun at the 40-year age difference between her and the rapper/music exec.

“It’s kind of ridiculous on paper, but in real life we ​​get along great,” she told host Kelly Clarkson. “He’s fabulous and I don’t give men qualities they don’t deserve.”

The pop star went on to describe her new husband, who shares a 3-year-old son with his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose. She said, “He’s very nice, he’s very smart, he’s very talented and he’s really funny,” before making sure to add, “And I think he’s pretty handsome.”

During the interview, Clarkson pointed out the importance of humor in a relationship. She told her guest that “it’s hard enough just living in this world,” so “it’s nice to have love.”

As for why Cher is usually attracted to younger men, the musician, who admitted she had a few boyfriends who “floated” around her own age, believes her odds of dating would be less if she stayed with older men .

“If I hadn’t met younger men in my life, I would never have dated because older men just didn’t like me that much,” she explained. “Maybe younger men don’t care if you’re funny or rude and want to do silly things and you have a strong personality. I don’t give up my personality for anyone, okay?”

Cher and Edwards first met at Paris Fashion Week in September and were photographed holding hands just before confirming their relationship with a Twitter post, which wrote, “Love knows no math.”

Celebrities like Drew Barrymore have also come out to defend the If I Could Turn Back Time singer’s age gap with her boyfriend. During her own daytime talk show The Drew Barrymore Show, The actress said she bet “men Cher’s age are a nap to her” and that she just wants the icon to “be happy and have fun.”
