Cher is having a pronoun problem when it comes to her daughter-turned-son Chaz Bono.
“She’s a very smart girl – boy!” the singer tells Vanity Fair in its December issue. “This is where I get into trouble. I still don’t remember to call her ‘him.’ ”
Chaz, 41 – born Chastity Bono – underwent gender reassignment last year, a process he said made him “a happy guy.” But Cher admits she still can’t quite wrap her mind around the idea of suddenly becoming a man.
