Afternoon Delight: Christina Aguilera and Cher in “Burlesque” and “That’s Gay” tackles a church lady

Trish Bendix brought you a new “That’s Gay” in Monday morning’s Brew, and I’m bringing you another new “That’s Gay” on Friday afternoon because we like to bookend the week with awesomeness, just for you! This time around Infomania’s Bryan Safi is shining some light on a church lady who sued her church for all past donations — to the tune of $250,000 — because they started performing same-sex marriages.

We’ve gotten our hands on the first promo shots from Cher and Christina Aguilera‘s new film, Burlesque. Here’s the official press release:

Ali (Christina Aguilera) is a small-town girl with a big voice who escapes hardship and an uncertain future to follow her dreams to LA. After stumbling upon The Burlesque Lounge, a majestic but ailing theater that is home to an inspired musical revue, Ali lands a job as a cocktail waitress from Tess (Cher), the club’s proprietor and headliner.

So, Coyote Ugly on the west coast, then? (Can’t fight the moonlight!)

Hey, speaking of Piper Perabo, have you been watching the promos for her new USA show, Covert Affairs? I watched the pilot last week and it is awesome! I’ll be doing a full review next week, but in the meantime, check out the trailer if you haven’t seen it already.


Sad news from the lady-lovin’ music scene: The combination of low attendance and headline artists bailing has caused Lilith Fair to cancel ten tour dates, including — weirdly enough — Salt Lake City and Nashville.

Our own Trish Bendix has an interview in the Huffington Post today, written by former AE superstar Jen Sabella.

Want to see something awesome? OK!

Want to hear something awesome? Chely Wright‘s new album, “Lifted Off the Ground,” is on sale for five bucks at today. It’s the MP3 version, too, which is excellent because do people still buy actual physical discs? Oh, and it also includes the bonus track “Don’t Look Down.”

Today’s Afternoon Delight is brought to you by Lynda Carter. She don’t need no stinkin’ pants.

Happy birthday, America!
