Aguilera left bruised by Burlesque

Christina Aguilera found working on dance routines for Burlesque tough

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.

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
