USA Today posted a photo preview of movie musical Burlesque, Christina Aguilera’s film debut and Cher’s first time starring in a leading role in over a decade. From what we can tell by these photos alone, it’s going to be one hell of a sassy night at the movies. One more photo of Christina in the flick awaits you below.
Sad! And sexy! And kind of drag queeny!
In the film, Christina plays Ali, an Iowan girl who leaves her hometown in search of fame and fortune, and ends up waitressing in a burlesque club. Soon enough, she showcases her vocal chops and becomes the main star, turning the club into a success. Happy ending!
Okay, there’s probably a whole lot in the middle there we’re not including, but honestly, let’s just call this movie what it is: Moulin Rouge‘s sluttier cousin.
Check out USA Today’s site for more photos from the set of Burlesque. This movie is either going to be outrageously awesome or an over-the-top mess… and we’re brimming with excitement either way.
