One Cher is all it takes.

The Goddess of Pop shut down a fan who compared Dua Lipa to her in a cheeky tweet on Tuesday.

“Dua Lipa, the Cher of our generation,” the Twitter user wrote along with a video of the “Levitating” singer, 27, at last year’s Grammy Awards.

But Cher, 76, didn’t seem to agree, responding with her own tweet, “How many years are in a generation?.”

Several netizens swooped in to “Cher” their own opinions on the comparison.

“False. I’m a millennial and it will always be Cher for me,” one person disagreed.

“Cher is for boomers/ gen X,” another wrote, adding, “Dua Lipa is for millennials/ gen Z.”

“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,” a third explained.

Lipa famously wore a butterfly dress that drew comparisons to a past Cher look.
