Cher still  isn't completely used to the fact that daughter Chastity is now son Chaz.

The "Half-Breed" singer accidentally referred to him as a her during a Vanity Fair interview and then confessed that she has trouble keeping up to date.

"Well, she's a very smart girl -- boy! This is where I get into trouble," Cher said. "My pronouns are f***ed. I still don't remember to call her 'him.'"

The legendary singer said she couldn't hack giving up her womanhood.

"If I woke up tomorrow in a guy's body, I would just kick and scream and cry and f****ing rob a bank, because I cannot see myself as anything but who I am -- a girl. I would not take it as well as Chaz has. I couldn't imagine it," she says.

Chasity became Chaz, 41, beginning in 2008. The transition was completed last year, and he is still with partner Jennifer

In the interview, in the December issue, Cher also says she forgives Sonny for being a terrible husband and a control freak, thinks they belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and that rich folks like her should pay more in taxes.
