What Actual Burlesque Stars Think Of The Movie “Burlesque”

If you love burlesque like I do, you might have had mixed feelings when you heard about the movie “Burlesque.” Just how badly might Christina Aguilera and Cher butcher this thing that I love? But on the other hand, how awful can a movie be if Stanley Tucci is in it?

I had to get to the bottom of this caper, so I wrangled two hungover New York City burlesque stars, Anita Cookie and Clams Casino, for a Friday afternoon showing of “Burlesque.” I am sure you will be shocked — shocked! — to learn that Hollywood took some creative liberties with the art of burlesque. (Spoilers ahead!) Keep reading »

“Burlesque” And “Showgirls” Are, Like, Totally Different Movies

Every time I see the trailer for “Burlesque,” the more and more it seems like a PG-13 version of the infamously NC-17 “Showgirls.” Even the teaser posters for both movies are eerily similar, down to the font choice. Which is confusing, because “Showgirls” is so laughably bad, I’m just not sure why any studio would greenlight such a similar movie. Or why anyone would want to star in it. Not to mention write and direct it. But, as I read more, I’m seeing that there are some subtle differences. Seriously subtle. A side by side look after the jump. Oh, and SPOILER ALERT.

Cher’s Brilliant Relationship Advice For Christina Aguilera

“We were like old chatty girlfriends that could not stop talking. They had to drag us to set a few times because we were late just talking about love and relationships and life. … She said, ‘You know, honey, husbands come and go, but I am still Cher at the end of the day.’”

Christina Aguilera talks about her off-screen rapport with her “Burlesque” co-star, Cher. That’s pretty good advice. [People] Keep reading »

Chaz Bono Brings His Girlfriend To The Premiere Of “Burlesque”

Cher still gets her pronouns confused when it comes to her female-to-male transgendered son, Chaz Bono. Regardless, Chaz made one of his first public appearances this week since having gender reassignment surgery, at the premiere of his mama’s new movie, “Burlesque.” With his girlfriend on his arm.

Cher Divulges Which Famous Men She Slept With

Cher and David Letterman have never been the best of friends. Remember when she called him an a-hole? Well, she played nice last night on the show as she promoted her new flick, “Burlesque.” And she answered Dave’s question about which celebrity men she’d slept with. (Scoot to to 9:00 mark to see it.) She confirmed that Warren Beatty, Tom Cruise, Gene Simmons, and Eric Clapton are notches on her bed post. But the most surprising moment was when she was asked about Elvis. “Almost,” she says. “I got nervous.” D’oh. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Cher Sometimes Calls Her Son Chaz Bono “Her”

“If I woke up tomorrow in a guy’s body, I would just kick and scream and cry and f**king rob a bank, because I cannot see myself as anything but who I am — a girl. I would not take it as well as Chaz has. I couldn’t imagine it. … She’s a very smart girl — boy! This is where I get into trouble. My pronouns are f**ked. I still don’t remember to call her ‘him.’”

Burlesque star Cher on her daughter-turned-son, Chaz Bono, who had gender reassignment surgery and was legally granted permission to change his name and gender this past May. I’m sure a lot of parents like Cher are supportive of their kid’s decision to have a sex change, but find it hard to say “Chaz” instead of “Chastity.”
