The large lunged 29-year-old diva Christina Aguilera is set to make her first starring role in the film musical Burlesque alongside Cher. Yes a musical, featuring Cher. Usually we would politely request that the film company take all of the recordings, both audio and visual, of this film, pout them into a biscuit tin, pack them into a rocket and fire them into the sun. But then we thought again, Aguilera is hot and she will be in a corset for large swathes of this film. That is good, it might even be worth watching this for. The film itself is a bit like Footloose crossed with Moulin Rouge. Here’s the spiel followed by an exclusive pic to remind you that Christina is just lovely and sometimes she gets naked.

‘Ali is a small-town girl with a big voice who escapes hardship and an uncertain future to follow her dreams to Los Angeles. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater that is home to an inspired musical revue, Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Tess (Cher)the club’s proprietor and headliner. Burlesque’s outrageous costumes and bold choreography enrapture the young ingenue, who vows to perform there one day.’
