Oh, [lastfm]Cher[/lastfm]. Do you believe in life after (choose one: an incredibly trite trailer for the destined box-office bust, Burlesque, so much botox your lines sound all garbled, performing next to the vocal goddess that is [lastfm]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm]) love? Despite the Showgirls meets Glitter meets every-movie-in-the-dance-genre vibe we are getting off the newly unveiled Burlesque trailer, we are happy to see the O.G. glamazon [lastfm]Cher[/lastfm] shaking her derriere with Miss Xtina and showing her who’s boss.
The trailer is all eye candy and cliché; [lastfm]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm] wants to become a star in Los Angeles, so naturally she becomes a cocktail waitress at a burlesque club. All she wants to do is get on stage and the only things holding her back are dancing domme [lastfm]Cher[/lastfm] and Aguilera’s own inhibitions. Can she make her dreams come true?
We bet you can guess what happens but here’s a little spoiler from [lastfm]Cher[/lastfm]:
“There are gonna be all kinds of people—they’ll just want to get close to you because you’re talented.”
Or you can just watch the trailer and figure out the entire premise of the movie in two minutes.
[lastfm]Cher[/lastfm] is an amazing musician and actress, but this isn’t Mermaids. We don’t think. We’ll have to see the movie in theatres and let you know if [lastfm]Cher[/lastfm] and Christina do any aquatic numbers.
