Alan Cumming "Cher's" Burlesque Spotlight

X-MEN star Alan Cumming is set to play a crooning nightclub bouncer in a raunchy new movie with Cher and Christina Aguilera.

Cumming, 45, is teaming up with the chart-toppers for a new version of hit musical Cabaret.

And the actor, from Dunkeld, Perthshire, is "very excited" about his role in Burlesque.

Cumming said: "I go to LA this week to start shooting my role. I have already recorded one of the songs.

"I play Alexis, the doorman of the burlesque club run by Cher, and where Christina Aguilera becomes the star turn.

"It's been reported that he is similar to the Emcee in Cabaret.That isn't really the case but he's still fun."

Cumming previously starred in Cabaret on Broadway.

The Grammys' Most Memorable Outfits

Christina Aguilera 2001

Exactly one year after winning "Best New Artist" for the pop-princess stylings of her self-titled debut album, Christina Aguilera got dirrty in a navel-baring dress that was as eye-catching as it was jaw-dropping. Accessorized with a head full of multi-colored braids, Christina later chalked the whole look up as "an experiment."

Christina Confused With Her Sexuality

Yes Hollywood is weird and its stars are also no less. They are confused about everything right from relationships to their sexuality! Can you believe that? Certainly not and we know about it.

Megan Fox- The first one who belongs to this is Megan Fox. Astonished to see her name here, then get more surprised by listening to she says. She thinks that if she could in a relationship with Angelina as she had a crush on her, she will be able to resolve her relationship problems. She says “I just think that all humans are born with the ability to be attracted to both sexes. I mean, I could see myself in a relationship with a girl." Although she never had been in a lesbian relationship but we can say that is quite a declaration!

Drew Barrymore- Drew has drawn out everything that she is a bisexual. She once said “I think a woman and a woman together are beautiful, just as a man and a woman together are beautiful."That definitely is no weirder for us.

Christina Aguilera- She has confessed of being attracted to other women but never have been in a relationship. She fantasizes about kissing other women and has in fact kissed some (remember the on-stage kiss with Madonna like Britney Spears did).

One request to our favorite stars please do not confuse us with your sexuality questions as that confuses us as well! We already have to go through a lot in our day to day lives. So please spare us!

Le Tigre Blog about Christina Aguilera

I just saw the Marie Claire with CHRISTINA AGUILERA on the cover and I realized we are waaaay overdue for an update. Yes, the rumors are true. . . Le Tigre wrote and produced a couple of songs with Christina! Not wanting to break the spell of this magic opportunity as we wait in suspense to hear if our tracks make it on the album, we’ve been quiet on the topic. But now that the buzz is getting crazy I just can’t contain myself. Needless to say, for a feminist band obsessed with pop music, it was pretty much a dream come true.

Around this time last year we got word that Deceptacon was Christina’s jam and that she wanted to work with Le Tigre on some new songs. At first we were tormented by the goal of writing “another Deceptacon” for her, wondering how to crack the code to its energy and production style (“shit, do we have to find an HR16-B on eBay and synch-up a fast beat with a warped guitar sample on an antique Mirage?!”) plus we wanted to write melodies that would showcase Christina’s incredible voice. The pressure was on! But we quickly realized that we just had to be ourselves and put our hearts into pulling together our best demos to play for her.

So. . . we prepared for our trip to LA to work with her in a typically crazy Le Tigre way due to our individually hectic schedules. Kathleen and I were in NYC meeting up periodically, handing off beats on mini-drives, and downloading JD’s arpeggiator loops and basslines sent from hotels rooms and backstage wi-fi all across the country (she was on tour with MEN). And, oh yeah, did I mention I had just given birth?! In June I flew to LA with my 11 week old baby Goldie and met up with JD at the airport shuttle to the car rental place. Kathleen stayed in NYC and we did lyric brainstorming via text messages, and JD and I sent her running to FedEx with her secret signature vocal FX box so Christina could try it out.

Meeting Christina and working with her at her home studio was simultaneously super comfortable and normal-seeming while also kind of a mind-blowing window into another world. If you’ve read the Marie Claire article you know about the crucifix doorknobs and plush couches, red and black decor, dish of ricolas and awesome speakers. But what made me feel at home as an artistic collaborator was that the space she had to be creative in was also filled with cool art and beautiful books and tons of notepads and a million great pens. Curling up in sweatpants, puzzling over lyrics and checking her blackberry while the beat loops forever. . . Hey Christina is just like us after all! She is totally cool and hilarious and down-to-earth.

But when it came time to lay down vocals we were in awe. She is a technical virtuoso behind the mic, layering take after take of flawless vocals and coming up with variations, ad-libs, and harmonies on the fly. And while her voice is like a force of nature, she is completely disciplined in her approach to recording and realizing her vision for each track. At the end of each night she would have a CD burned for her and come back with detailed comments about things she wanted to perfect the next day.

It was definitely intimidating, when we stopped and thought about it, to work with such a huge star (I mean, she has her own perfume line), so we tried not to think about it too much. Obviously Christina has a massive audience and a mainstream presence, and so the question a lot people ask about the experience is how did this change or influence our approach to the content of the songs. Together we tailored themes and specific references to her personality and image but found a ton of common ground in our aim to make upbeat danceable tracks celebrating female friendship, strength, and of course, PARTYING. And while the giant sound of her stacked vocals and the pop sheen she lends to the tracks might seem at odds with Le Tigre’s aesthetic roots, it really works. The songs have a lot of elements we’re known for, like a garage guitar sound, schoolyard chants, new wave-y synths, electro beats, and somehow it all sounds crazily right with Christina’s unbelievable voice. We hope you get to hear the songs sometime soon!

In other news, we’ve been busy shooting interviews and gearing up to promote our forthcoming DVD of live performances, backstage antics and touring adventures. More on that later. . .

IAmAmIWhoAmI Viral Video Breakdown

- The Music from the videos sounds like something the people she collaborated with would produce
- "iamamiwhoami" sounds like her song title "You Are What You Are" which itself has an electronic instrumental with a similar vibe to the music we've heard from the videos
- "Bionic" means something artificial mimics something from nature (the electronic music as a contrast to the organic videos, the tags "machine" and "wood" in the first video.)- Christina was quoted saying the following "I'm very excited [about] this whole incredible thing that's taken place in my life, between the pregnancy and the birth. I've been brainstorming for the last nine months of my pregnancy. This next album will have a whole new me. A different me." in February 2008. As we all know, the videos depict a pregnancy.- Christina has called herself a "night owl" in November 2009. There is an owl in the 2nd video and a song called "Birds of Prey" on her album. The video clip of the owl was appropriated from an owl video which happens to have "birds of prey" as a tag.- The girl in the 2nd video has similar facial features.- Adding up the numbers in the title of the first video and translating its numeric placing with the alphabet would result in the following initials: CH.AG
- Adding up the numbers in title of the 3rd video and translating its numeric placing with the alphabet would result in the following phrase: I.T.S.M.E.C- The 3rd video includes strawberry cakes. She wore a strawberry cake shirt the day prior to the leak of that video. Strawberry shortcakes are hugely popular in Japan. Christina said she was inspired by Tokyo and there is a song on her album called "Kimono Girl".- The 3rd video includes a sequence with a whale. The song is Lullabyesque. There is a SIA Whale festival. Sia. apparently wrote a Lullabyesque Track with Christina.-You can practically hear the word 'Bionic' in the third video if you listen with high-quality earphones. Many trustworthy LD member can attest to this

Christina's Trainer Reveals How Christina Trimmed Down

For Christina Aguilera, preparing for her role as a singer and performance artist in her first film, Burlesque, is clearly doing her body good! “I’m bringing my A-game and taking it very seriously,” she tells In Touch. Her trainer of five years, Tee Sorge, reveals that the 29-year-old star is rehearsing 14 hours a day and says a lot of that time is spent dancing. “She’s tremendously happy and feels really strong,” Sorge tells In Touch. The busy mother is also squeezing intense weight-training sessions into her busy schedule two to five times a week. “We want to make sure she doesn’t lose her muscle mass or too much weight,” her trainer says. So, Christina starts with a 10-minute warm-up on the treadmill and then goes straight into lifting weights. “We work the entire upper body by doing everything from bicep curls to tricep dips,” says Sorge. “Christina does three sets of each exercise and uses weights ranging from five to 15 pounds.” But her favorite thing to do is work her abs, and Sorge reveals the star does 300 to 500 sit-ups a session! When it comes to her diet, Christina has always been “good” says Sorge, but now she’s eating exceptionally healthy. “We took out all the whites, like white rice and white sugars,” says Sorge. “She’s sticking to whole grains and lean proteins.” Luckily for her, she has one cheat day a week. “Her goal now is just to be fit,” Sorge tells In Touch.

HuffingtonPost Reviews "Lift Me Up"

HuffingtonPost has recently reviewed Christina’s new song, ‘Lift Me Up.'

Christina Aguilera/Lift Me Up: had the courage to debut a new original song. Supreme balladeer, with all her success she remains an underrated singer-songwriter. Impeccable delivery, but as a stand-alone composition, not within a mile of her glorious 2006 hit, "Hurt."

Adam Lambert: 'I Respect Christina So Much!"

Lambert’s debut, For Your Entertainment, doesn’t feature Timberlake, but the album credits are nevertheless extensive and eclectic – and stacked with bold-faced names. Lambert’s bananas for the whole pack – but in the rare instances where he had the opportunity to work with some of these idols in studio, he says his fandom wasn’t a liability.

“To be honest with you, I’m not that easily intimidated. I think that everybody’s human and I think that fame is kind of an illusion, to be honest,” he says.


That much-repeated Oprah show anecdote about how he was “intimidated” upon meeting Madonna was a rare exception, he says. And, OK, maybe you could consider Christina Aguilera fanboy-spaz fodder, as well. “I think Christina Aguilera would be really interesting to perform with, and I think I might be a little starstruck by her because I respect her so much,” he admits.

PROOF!!! THE VIRAL VIDS ARE OF CHRISTINA AGUILERA!!!

Follow this link:

"http://stuff.sonybmg.de/Image/Christina_Aguilera/Promo_Album.jpg"

You will see an image that is a video-still released by Sony BMG under the name of Christina Aguilera, this is an exact match to the second video. A close up of a blonde girl's eyes, slathered with mud on her face, weird contacts, eyelashes, etc, which is an EXACT MATCH TO THE GIRL IN THE SECOND VIRAL VIDEO.

I came across this image 3-4 months ago and thought it was weird, not realizing what it was (or who it was), I therefore dismissed it and forgot about it all!

Only four days ago I came across the viral videos, and when I saw the second, I screamed, I knew immediately. I got on Twitter, Facebook, the forum for the "iamamiwhoami" channel. My comments regarding the proof I have discovered on the "iamamiwhoami" Channel forum, would mysteriously disappear only two minutes after posting. I was emailed by everyone and their Mother and Father asking, "Who is it?" "What's your proof?" I had to send the URL address via email. Most accepted this as proof. I didn't know what other proof anyone else could need! IT'S UNMISTAKABLE. CHRISTINA IS A FREAKING GENIUS, EVEN IF ALL SHE DID WAS HIRE REALLY GREAT PEOPLE TO DO THE WORK FOR HER. CHRISTINA FREAKING ROCK'S!

ALL HAIL.. QUEEN CHRISTINA ..Queen of Music

Is This Strange Tongue-Happy Creature Christina Aguilera?

AGUILERA ONLINE reported the Viral Videos were not of Christina Aguilera, as set by her publicist. Publicist's lie, and honestly, I refuse to believe they are not of her! Here's an interesting article I found and want to share with you:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you’re a Christina Aguilera fan – or just curious about the direction her soon-to-be-released album will take considering she’s been busy collaborating with the likes of Goldfrapp, Sia, Santigold, M.I.A, and Ladytron – then you might want to watch the following batshit crazy video. According to The Internets™, it has something to do with the Dirrty singer’s new record.

WHAT. THE. HELL? This Idolator leak sounds a little more like what I was expecting from Xtina’s new record.

It’s all very strange. The videos that have been uploaded to this YouTube channel are all mysteriously named things like “9.20.19.13.5.723378″ which apparently is code for “Christina Aguilera”, although conspiracy theorists say that this video could also be the work of Lady Gaga, Aubrey O’Day, or Allison Goldfrapp herself.

Either way, it made me feel weird in my tummy. I am going to go and listen to Ain’t No Other Man now.

Finally, there's a rumor that we have already been exposed to the marketing for BIONIC. Could it be that this rumor clears the question everyone has been asking? Is this Christina Aguilera? Only time will truly tell...


Christina Aguilera and Muhammad Ali PSA Video



On Tuesday we brought you behind the scenes as sports icon and global humanitarian Muhammad Ali and multi-Grammy winner Christina Aguilera filmed a new Haiti relief effort PSA. Now we show you the final product!

Appearing together in a new public service announcement, the duo are teaming up to raise funds for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) Haitian relief effort. Donations will go directly to WFP's efforts to get food to survivors of Haiti's devastating earthquake.

The PSA urges viewers to donate $5 by texting FRIENDS to 90999 or visit www.fromhungertohope.com. Your donation of $5 will feed 20 hungry children in the earthquake-ravaged country, according to the WFP.

Aguilera is also the spokesperson for Yum! Brands World Hunger Relief, the world's largest private-sector, hunger-relief effort that is underwriting the PSA.

"I'm devastated by the toll that the earthquake has taken, and as a mom, I am especially heartbroken by the children and families affected," Aguilera said. "My goal for the PSA is to inspire as many people as possible to donate to the World Food Programme so they can continue to feed the survivors in Haiti and move them from hunger to hope."

"The earthquake and the aftershocks in Haiti are among the worst tragedies of our lifetime," Muhammad Ali said of the tragedy. "I urge people from around the world to open their hearts and give anything they can to help the World Food Programme's relief efforts in Haiti."

"Glam" Alleged Song Snippet

Christina Aguilera’s fourth studio album Bionic drops in March, and will be preceded by a single ‘Glam’. Here is a ridiculously short and possibly fake ‘Glam’ snippet to whet your appetite:




…and of course the most interesting thing about that is that it seems to be in keeping with the glitchy electronica used in those weird anonymous viral ads that have been floating around. Oooh. Oh, and don’t forget, Aguilera also debuted new track ‘Lift Me Up‘ at last week’s Hope for Haiti telethon.

Official Tour Video for "Stripped (Intro)"

Who's Behind 'Iamamiwhoami' Viral Clips? Not Christina Aguilera ...

Lady Gaga, Goldfrapp, MGMT, Trent Reznor suspected as source of mysterious YouTube clips.

By James Montgomery

It all started in December, with a 55-second video clip that featured plenty of trees, spindly, spooky appendages, and one particularly grisly live birth (or at least we think it's a live birth.) Then, in early January, there was a second clip ... a Dendrophiliac's wet dream, loaded with images of a mud-smeared woman licking a tree and some strangely sexualized sap. And owls, plenty of owls. And then, on Sunday, a third, this one a slo-mo underwater dream sequence, with a whole lot of confectionary, a murky fetus and exactly one singing whale shark.

Then there are the numbers that accompany the videos — mysterious sequences of digits that may be spelling out some coded message, or revealing a release date (or may just be numbers) — and the music, a soundtrack of chiming, slightly ominous electronic bloops and bleeps. Confused? Intrigued? Welcome to the club.

It's the ongoing saga of "Iamamiwhoami," the latest in a series of maddeningly compelling viral campaigns to seize the attention of Internet obsessives. Named for the YouTube user who began uploading the clips, the campaign has slowly become a full-blown frenzy, and the speculation has begun to run rampant about just who was behind it all.

Fans have thrown names like Lady Gaga and Goldfrapp into the ring. Resident weirdos like Bjork and the Knife have been suspected. MGMT, too. Some think Trent Reznor — who has some experience with things like this — is the mastermind. Still others believe that it's all leading up to the release of Aphex Twin's next project. But through it all, one name kept popping up with bizarre regularity: Christina Aguilera.

See, Aguilera does have a new album coming soon, an ambitious and reportedly futuristic outing she's calling Bionic. She has been known to adopt an alter-ego or two (remember Xtina?). And the repeated use of fetal imagery in the videos does lend credence to her claims that the birth of her son Max was an inspiration for the record. So, while the clips would represent a rather, uh, ambitious re-imagining of herself, it wasn't beyond the realm of possibility that she was somehow involved in the campaign.

Only, it is. Because while we don't know much about the "Iamamiwhoami" series, according to her publicist, "Iamamiwhoami" is "100 percent not [Christina] ... not sure why people think it is."

So there you go. But who else could it be? Well, Reznor did recently post on NIN.com that "2010 has a number of things planned, including new material from Nine Inch Nails and something else that isn't Nine Inch Nails," so he's still in play. MGMT — whose Congratulations is due this year — could also be responsible, and a pair of e-mails sent to a spokesperson for the band about "Iamamiwhoami" have thus far gone unanswered.

The Knife, who are plenty odd, also could be behind all this madness. They're releasing a studio version of an opera based on the life of Charles Darwin, and the videos do have a rather, uh, "natural" quality to them (not to mention the fact that the music does sound like the stuff they've done in the past.) Goldfrapp has been known to use owl imagery, and while they do have an album due this year, the dank aesthetic of the YouTube clips doesn't seem to match the airbrushed cover of the thing. And as far as we know, there's no new music from Bjork coming anytime soon, and Gaga's still promoting her Fame Monster album.

So, like all great viral campaigns, we're just as stuck as you are. The mystery of "Iamamiwhoami" rolls on, and all we can do is wait for the next clue. Whoever's behind all this, we salute you: You've got us hooked!

"Bionic" Postponed to April Release Date

On MONDAY, JANUARY 18TH, 2010, AGUILERA ONLINE posted that Bionic will be postponed to April. To read the FIRST source of this inconvenient news, CLICK HERE.

'Hope for Haiti' raises $58 million and Counting

Los Angeles, California (CNN) --
Friday night's star-studded "Hope for Haiti" telethon has raised a record-breaking $58 million, with more donations continuing to pour in from around the world, the benefit's organizers announced Saturday.
The preliminary figure is a record for donations made by the public through a disaster relief telethon, according to a news release from telethon organizers.
Additionally, the "Hope for Haiti Now" album, a compilation of the night's musical performances made available on Apple's iTunes, was the No. 1 album in 18 countries Saturday. Sales figures for iTunes are still being calculated, and the preliminary figure of $58 million does not include donations from corporations or large private donors.
People will be able to make donations to "Hope for Haiti" via phone, Web, text messaging and regular mail for the next six months, according to the news release.
A moving performance by Alicia Keys opened Friday night's telethon, and actor George Clooney, serving as the Los Angeles host for the event, made the first appeal for donations to raise money for relief efforts after last week's devastating earthquake.
"The Haitian people need our help," Clooney said. "They need to know they are not alone. They need to know that we still care."
The show was one of the most widely distributed prime-time televised benefits in history, appearing simultaneously on more than 25 networks -- including CNN, where Anderson Cooper reported live from Haiti during the event.
More than 100 actors, musicians and other celebrities answered phones in New York and Los Angeles after professional operators first talked to donors.
"Thank you so much for your donation," actress Reese Witherspoon told one caller. "You can't imagine how much love and great, wonderful energy is here today. People are doing everything they can to make a difference in these people's lives."
Several other calls were aired live, including with Julia Roberts, Steven Spielberg, Taylor Swift and Stevie Wonder.
Swift and Wonder were among the evening's musical performers. Others included Bruce Springsteen, Bono, Jay-Z, Rihanna, Shakira, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Coldplay, CHRISTINA AGUILERA, John Legend, Justin Timberlake, Kid Rock, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Jennifer Hudson, Madonna, Dave Matthews and Neil Young.
Other celebrities appearing on the telethon included Jon Stewart, Brad Pitt, Tom Hanks, Morgan Freeman, Ben Stiller, Clint Eastwood and Denzel Washington.
Proceeds from the telethon will benefit Oxfam America, Partners in Health, the Red Cross, UNICEF, the U.N. World Food Programme, Yele Haiti Foundation and the Clinton Bush Haiti Foundation.

"Lift Me Up" Lyrics by Christina Aguilera

So the pain begins
as the music fades
and Im left here with
with more than I can take

if you lift me up
just get me through this night
i know ill rest tomorrow
and ill be strong enough to try

when the sky clears
and all is said and done
i will realize
that we all need someone

if you lift me up
just get me through this night
i know ill rest tomorrow
and Ill be strong enough to try

so when you see me crashing
and theres nowhere left to fall
will you lift me even higher
to rise above this all

if you lift me up
said if you lift me up

said if you lift me up
will it be higher

when you see me crashing
and theres nowhere left to fall
will you lift me even higher
to rise above this all

if you lift me up
said if you lift me up
if you lift me up
just get me through this night
