Cher Reveals Her Teenage Mugshot On “The Tonight Show”: PHOTO

Cher and her also-ageless mom, Georgia Holt, were kiki-ing with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show last night, when Jay surprised them by posting Cher’s mugshot, taken when the diva was just 13. It seems the Dark Lady got tired of sitting in her friend’s car while he ran an errand—so she drove it to a drive-in. Leave it to Cher to be an impatient diva even at the tender age of 13!

NewNowNext contributor Chris J. Kelly had our favorite take on the shot:

“The best part about this is the expression on her face It’s not even that she’s a little happy: it’s that she looks like she’s reached enlightenment. There’s a peace and wisdom about her here that floors me. Like, she got arrested in her teen years and suddenly figured it all out, making the conscious decision to become a drag queen superdiva, and then just went ahead and did it and was like, ’no big.'”

Now we just need to see Chad Michael’s mugshot.
