Christina Aguilera has admitted she was covered in bumps and bruises during the filming of Burlesque.

The five-time Grammy award-winner stars as a small-town singer with big dreams opposite Cher in the musical, and found the dance routines quite challenging.

"Oh, I had so many bruises every day, especially when I was whipping that long strand of diamonds around for Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend - I smacked my leg so many times in rehearsal before I got it right," she told Collider.

"Getting down on my knees for some of the movements bruised me. I bruise easily, but I looked like I got in a car accident on some of the days after rehearsals."

She added: "There were intense dance rehearsals. I never danced in my life before Burlesque. I fully had to solely concentrate on the dancing, and I really haven't ever danced before so much in my life."

:: Burlesque opens in cinemas on December 17.

Aquarius:

You long to have some fun, but responsibilities require your attention. Set some reasonable goals and then reward yourself when you finish them in the allotted time. Having incentives will keep you focused and productive. Fortunately, a loved one is offering lots of support. Lean on this friend when you feel discouraged. With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
