If you know me AT ALL you'll know one thing: Since I was 9 years old I am obsessed with Christina Aguilera. I know, it's not that interesting of a fact, but it's mine.
I remember the first time I saw her music video for "Genie in a Bottle", I was at my old cousins house watching mtv and her video came up... and I was hooked. Since then, I've collected every magazine, album, dvd, book, interviews and documentaries involving her. My friends at school called me Marysa Aguilera because I would be always singing her songs and trying to be her like every teen girl out there.You can ask me anything about this woman, I will answer you right away because I know... I still know every dance move she did on her videos and performances. I know almost every interview out there and used them a lot in school on my oral presentations because I love the way she talks and presents herself.
My boyfriend says I look like her (which I know I DON'T) because we have the same ways... I talk like her and move like her, it's really odd. I have seen so many things from her over the years that I have her ways now without even noticing, even the voice... it's really weird and I tried to changed it but I can't ahahah I guess I have grown watching her and admiring her so I picked up some things from her. All her albums helped me a lot, especially the album Stripped, her songs "Cruz" and "Soar" were my signature ones ehehe Now I can't choose a favorite, just don't ask me to do that ok?
Now that I gave you this huge introduction, I'm going to talk about her first movie "Burlesque". Today was my 4th anniversary with my boyfriend, and to celebrate he knew how much I wanted to see "Burlesque" but couldn't go before because I have finals... so he choose today and didn't mind coming with me to see this movie. I have to say, when the movie starts and Christina (Ali) talks I start shaking of happiness... Then she started to sing "Something's got a Hold on me" and I was glued to the chair.
The musicals were beautiful. The dance moves, the vocals, the instrumentals and the effects were gorgeous. Sensual girls dancing, beautiful music and background... you will left the cinema so inspired you will want to go home, put on a dark eye liner and a red lipstick and just dance on top of a chair!
All the actors and actresses were all very well known and did a great job, even Christina did really well! But I have to say that the star was Cher. Powerful yet graceful, Cher was back to her old days of acting and singing and gave her all. When the song "You haven't seen the Last of me" was on, you could feel her pain and hope, it was really emotional and beautiful.
Even though the story isn't that original, it will give you a message of hope and that everything is possible, you'll just have to fight for it. It captured perfectly the feel and vibe to Burlesque, adding a a more modern vibe to it without taking it out of concept. Even if you don't like musicals, the image effects and mix of genre of music will catch your attention and you'll definitely be entertained.
I am a hard rock fan of Christina Aguilera but you can trust my word when I say you will not be disappointed!
I already had the soundtrack since the beginning of December so I knew the words to all the songs! It's a beautiful soundtrack that every musical fan should have! You can buy it on amazon like me, just click the image below (:
