Pop superstar Cher has attacked younger chart rivals Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez, labelling them "hoes".

The singer lashed out during a concert in Auckland, New Zealand, during the Australasian leg of her farewell tour.

Cher explained her decision to quit touring to the 20,000 fans, saying "I'm not going to give up show business, but there are new girls coming up like Britney and J.Lo."

But when the crowd booed, the superstar turned on her contemporaries, snapping "I know. They are hoes, aren't they?"
