Christina Aguilera ‘Thrilled’ With ‘Burlesque’ Globe Noms

After scooping up several big Golden Globe nominations, Christina Aguilera is speaking out about the success of her big screen musical Burlesque.

In a statement given to Celebuzz, Aguilera says:

“I want to thank the HFPA for recognizing our song ‘Bound to You’. It is a ballad Sia and I wrote from the heart and one that I am extremely proud of. I am thrilled that our film ‘Burlesque’ was nominated for a Golden Globe Award. Making this movie was a life changing experience and I couldn’t be more pleased that the Foreign Press has recognized the hard work the cast and I put into it. Now I am off to Paris with the cast to continue our international press tour “

Burlesque, which stars Aguilera and Cher as ambitious stage dancers, was nominated for Best Motion Picture in the comedy/musical category, and also got a songwriting nod for the tune “Bound” that Aguilera co-wrote.
