After much anticipation, I finally saw Burlesque this past Wednesday with my cousin and it did not disappoint. It was a fun, light and upbeat movie, something definitely worth seeing with a few of your girlfriends. The dancing numbers were my fav and Christina Aguilera's voice is absolutely, unbelievably, out of this world. Every time she sang my body had chills. She has such an amazing gift, I hope to hear more ballads from her. Cher did a good job, nothing amazing. It was a simple and fun movie. If you have the urge to go to the theatre, but don't have one in your area, just go out and see Burlesque!
Here a few Burlesque inspired photos... Happy Friday!
