I do realize that its months away from the holiday season (which is why I didn't write "Christmas" gift idea), but I was inspired to write about this anyhow tonight!
I saw Burlesque in theaters with my girlfriend Sunshine back in Japan. It was a somewhat predictable plot, but the burlesque performances in the movie is what makes the cheesy love story tantalizing. And the soundtrack? I will NEVER tire of it! I think my husband and kids may beg to differ, but I honestly listen to the entire soundtrack at least once a day, no exaggeration. The songs vary so much: there are powerful ballads by both Cher and Christina Aguilera, catchy show songs, and one of my favorites: a very playful Marilyn Monroe-esque song "I Am A Good Girl."
If you have an amazing woman in your life (and who doesn't?), consider gifting either the movie or soundtrack, or better yet, both! I promise your friend/sister/mother/neighbor/math tutor will really appreciate the sexy, empowering, and fun that this movie offers :)
