Ahead of tonight’s festivities, André Leon Talley brought some beautiful Cher fan fiction to life by recalling his favorite Met Gala memory:

Cher came up the steps and I was beating a tambourine and she took the tambourine out of my hands and she started beating the tambourine. And we became friends.

Just further proof that Cher is America’s most beloved new age aunt.
