Aguilera: Movie been a journey
Christina Aguilera has admitted that working on her first movie felt like going back to the classroom.
The award-winning Dirrty singer is rehearsing a role in Burlesque - a musical drama about a smalltown girl who heads to LA and becomes a burlesque dancer - and told Marie Claire it has been "kind of like my first day at school".
The 29-year-old told the mag she had been waiting for a challenging silver screen part, explaining: "I didn't want to do something that was easy for me."
She continued: "It's been quite the journey, let me tell you! Almost like training camp."
Burlesque, which also stars Cher and Stanley Tucci, is due out in 2010.
