Tribute Thursday: Christina Aguilera

Ola and happy Thursday my sexy cherries and daggers!

Christina Aguilera

So remember in the late 90’s and early naughties when the world’s population was
divided between the Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears fans? Apparently the
two pop princesses of the time were each other’s biggest haters. Who even knows
if that was ever the truth! But regardless of whether it was true or not and
although I did like Britney a lot, from the moment Christina Aguilera did Lady
Marmalade with Pink, Maya and Lil Kim – I was 100% Team Christina!

To me she was (and still is) a goddess! She’s beautiful, talented and has a raw
sex appeal that’s totally effortless and was absolutely perfect for the movie
Burlesque. She is so amazing and such an inspiration!

Alrighty I’m done drooling. She was born Christina Maria Aguilera on  December 18, 1980 somewhere in Staten Island, New York and is half Irish and half Latin.
She was one of many who were part of the Mickey Mouse Club who blossomed
into the sexy teen who sang Genie in a Bottle and later became known for her
provocative lyrics and clothes.

Lady Marmalade was born, then Dirrty then Can’t
Hold Us Down and Not Myself Tonight. This year Christina released the album
Lotus, another amazing album showing both her soft and sexy sides and of course
showcasing that delicious voice of hers.

Oh and she also happened to be the star of one of my favourite movies EVER – Burlesque with Cher, which is about a small-town girl who goes to LA to become a dancer and gets sucked into the amazing world of old-school glamour and beautiful music.

So for this Tribute I’m not going to add music videos to songs of hers we already know, I’m going to add some of the performances I thought were her most amazing and love the most, starting with her performance of “Fever” at a Burlesque club in LA that landed her the role in the movie in the first place. Caution – it’s HOT!!

Have a sexy Thursday peeps!


Tattoo Tuesday: Couple Tattoos – Yay or Nay?

Hey my awesome blog followers!

So, today’s Tattoo Tuesday blog is about couples getting each other’s names tattoo’d on their bodies. What possesses them to do it? Have you done it? What is the obsession people have with it? And why, even after seeing so many relationships getting (dare I say it?) “cursed” from getting these tats, do people do it?

Now, tats have been around since almost the beginning of time, but couple tattoos only became popular once it was westernized in the 1900’s.

Ok, so my dad got a tattoo of my mom’s name on his arm when he was in the army and 700 years later (just kidding dad!), he still doesn’t regret getting it, but what about those couples that don’t make the “700 years together” mark? Like Angelina Jolie getting Billy Bob’s name on her arm, or Johnny Depp changing his “Winona Forever” tat to the dumb “Wino Forever” after he and Winona Ryder broke up.

Other couples opt for something a little more subtle like matching tattoos, like Britney and K-Fed getting matching dice.

So, my 2 cents?
In a world where divorce is as normal as changing dentists, I wouldn’t recommend getting your high school crush’s name tattoo’d on your inner thigh, just in case. I mean, it was perfectly normal back in 1975 when all the teens were getting married at 17 and (most) stayed together till their dying day and I don’t care how optimistic you might be about your relationship, if you’re at all realistic, you will stay away from these “lovey dovey” tattoos! But hey, that’s just me.

If you have had them done though, send me a picture, I’d love to see them!

Anyway Happy Tuesday!
