Lest you forget, there's only one Cher.
The icon seemed to take issue with a Twitter user after they compared Dua Lipa to the "Believe" singer.
"Dua Lipa, the Cher of our generation," the Twitter user wrote along with a video of the "Levitating" singer.
Cher, who was tagged in the message, was obviously irked by the opinion and threw shade. "How many years are in a generation🤔," she replied to the Twitter user on Tuesday, Aug. 30.
The tweets set off a firestorm of options with many seemingly older fans supporting Cher.
"One thing is being *inspired* by someone, and other is being a replacement. Dua is the Dua Lipa of our generation. Cher is Cher. No need to compare two completely different individuals in talent just because one dress like the other," one person said.
Another said, "People are not really understanding the cultural impact Cher had. Anyone can dress like Cher today, but it's not the same thing as being the first one to break that ground. That was Cher. Also Cher has starred in movies and her own TV show. She is the one and only."
A third believed, "Cher is for boomers/ gen X. Dua Lipa is for millennials/ gen Z."
