Burlesque First Look

Singer Christina Aguilera decided to make her debut as an actor in a musical comedy called Burlesque from filmmaker Steven Antin. The cast was filled with the likes of Cher, Kristen Bell, Cam Gigandet, Stanley Tucci and Alan Cumming, and it's aiming to hit theaters in November. USA Today published a first look at Burlesque with new photos. "People think burlesque shows are rooted in some overtly sexual striptease with G-strings and pasties," Antin says. "But originally it was parody entertainment… that was provocative, funny and always based in comedy. That's not to say [Burlesque] isn't really sexy… But it's PG-13 sexy." Read on!

Christina Aguilera in Burlesque

Burlesque is a contemporary musical where Aguilera plays an ambitious smalltown girl with a big voice who finds love, family and success in a Los Angeles neo-burlesque club. It was pitched as "Moulin Rouge meets Cabaret", and will use established songs that will be updated and worked into dance numbers. Cher, in her first movie musical ever, plays the owner of the financially strapped Sunset Strip nightclub. It sounds like we really need to see a trailer to get a good idea if this will be worth seeing or not, but these photos do look interesting. The 12-song soundtrack includes four original songs written by Aguilera. Stay tuned for more!

    Looks kind of like a modern day Chicago. I'll probably go see it. Consider my interest piqued.
  • DJSNOLA`
    Cher and Stanley Tucci have my interest!
  • Peace Love & GaGa
    I agree with #1 She apparently "had no idea who GaGa was" so "she didn't copy her style" yeah bullshit. Every musician knows who GaGa is, GaGa is the new madonna, and christina is jealous of that. Too bad she kinda sucks at making music.

    LOL you people have no idea what you're talking about. Christina had this style BEFORE Gaga. Christina had platinum blonde hair, red lips and wore a bra and underwear for 10 years now. In 2000 Christina was wearing big hair and crazy makeup while Gaga was still in Junior High School wearing pink skirts with her brown hair. She didn't know who Gaga was in 2008, sorry but most people didn't. Either way, how can Christina be copying a clone of everyone else? And how can Christina be copying someone's style if she had that sort of style BEFORE them? Look at pictures of Gaga in 2005 then Christina in 2005..who looks like who? http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Proof-That-Christina-Did-NOT-Copy-Gaga/117644088256436?ref=ts

    BTW Christina doesn't need to be the "next Madonna" that's OBVIOUSLY what Gaga desperately wants to be. From dressing exactly like her to even doing the British accent. Gaga is a clone down to the T. Christina has the strongest voice out of any singer out right now so why would she want to be Madonna if her voice surpasses her?
  • Peace Love & GaGa
    #6- Wow yeah I see what you mean. Like she's wearing her hair all poofy in 2008 when christina did it in 2003...yeah because no one has ever wore their hair like that before. GaGa doesn't copy christina. And yes many people did know who she was in 2008 due to Just Dance, possibly the greatest dance song ever written. Like yeah, I'm sure christina went a full year without knowing who GaGa was, with her not even hearing about Just Dance or Poker Face. She obviously knew who she was. She's just too embarrassed seeing that they've found her out. #7- Christina has a few okay songs. Madonna flat out sucks. GaGa is the most amazing female singer of this decade, and possibly of all time. Both of her CD's are simply astounding. Her #1 hits aren't even the best songs off of her albums. Unlike GaGa, christina has one or two good songs off each album. The Fame broke many, many records, none of christina's even put a ding in the record books. GaGa is the best hands down, no singer nowadays has the ability to give her a run for her money.
  • Gaga's Wang
    @ Peace Love & Gaga: Christina's debut sold 17 million, which is more than both of Gaga's albums have sold combined. Gaga is a freakshow and the public is already losing interest so I wish her the best of luck keeping up her game. Anyway, back to topic: the movie looks good but I will probably wait until I see the trailers before I decide whether or not I'll go see it.
  • Peace Love & GaGa
    @ 9 Well GaGa's The Fame has gone Diamond worldwide. Both albums have sold 15,000,000 and have had 40,000,000 song digital downloads, and that's way more than Christina has had. GaGa may not be as popular right now, but come fall when her 3rd album comes out, she'll be back on top. And Christina will once again go back to the shadows and cease to exist, pretty much like she is right now.
