Falling for my muse again
I first fell in lust with Cam Gigandet in Twilight. I'm not one for sparkly vampires, so as the bad boy James, Cam was - in my humble opinion - perfect.
No one told me Cam is also in Burlesque. Now I'm head over heels in love.
Burlesque is a little like Coyote Ugly - in fact, the story lines are quite similar. Small town girl leaves behind dead-end job in search of fame and fortune in the big city, meets older mentor who dishes out a healthy dose of tough love, girl becomes a huge star and ends up with the witty, hot (er, damn hot) guy at the end. There's singing, and dancing, and fun dialogue.
Yeah, I loved it.
But then, I knew I would.
In addition to falling in love with Cam all over again, Burlesque made me miss dance. Not just the Naughty Hotties class, where some of Jessica's awesome moves were on the big screen, but everything about the way dancing makes me feel. Work has been busy, life is hectic and I can't remember the last class I attended at J'Adore Dance. I'm trying not to beat myself up over that.
Burlesque has that inspirational quality about it - muchly needed since I've been a little lax on the writing the past few weeks. Needless to say, Cam is a perfect muse avatar to kick me into gear. In case you doubt the selection, here's a couple more photos to sway you:

Oh Burlesque! How I love thee...I want to wear a sparkly corset and smack my bum all day long...I miss my performing days...I miss my heels...*bliss*ReplyDelete
We miss you at dance class too :)ReplyDelete
he's way hotter in Burlesque than in Twilight, IMO. I mean, that wig in T was awful... :DReplyDelete
I won't see Twilight on principal (I detested the book so can't support the franchise except to mock it) but this young man definitely has appeal. Hell, that's not a six pack--he's got a CASE going there...ReplyDelete
"I want to wear a sparkly corset and smack my bum all day long" - MEAGHAN, you crack me up!ReplyDelete
DONNA - I'm coming back. Promise!
LTM - uh, he had hair in T? I'm afraid I didn't see anything but the abs...
HART - Yes, definite appeal. Makes me, er, thirsty just looking at him.
I seriously think they should have rewritten the end of Twilight so that James didn't die in the movie, and brought him back for the sequels. Too yummy!ReplyDelete
He's too good looking for me. He's attractive but just...yeah, too good looking.ReplyDelete
STINA - I couldn't agree more! I mean, Victoria's cool and all, but lacking the visual appeal...the roles could have been reversed!ReplyDelete
WW - too good looking? Hm. Perhaps...
sigh. He really is beautiful. I haven't seen burlesque but it appears I need to get my arse in gear and look into it!ReplyDelete
You can have him all you want. I can't comment on his appeal. But Rachelle Lefevre is hot hot hot, and Alice can still bit me anytime!ReplyDelete
I have never seen argyle look so damn good :)ReplyDelete
CREEPY - speaking of arse's, you see Cam's in Burlesque. (In case you needed additional motivation...)ReplyDelete
ROCKY - I have a soft spot for Rachelle :-)
SS - so true... xo
OMG - what else was he in?! It's driving me crazy. It must have been a TV show. I'm not so good at movie watching. But he seems so familiar. That's going to drive me nuts. Must google...ReplyDelete
Okay! I googled. He was on the OC! He played a bad guy. He's stupid hot.ReplyDelete
SUZANNE - I just fell a little more in love with you. I LOVED him in the OC. Perfect bad boy. And yes, he IS stupid hot <3ReplyDelete
Yeah, he looks better as a non-vampire. =) Here's to a good muse.ReplyDelete
Cheers, CAROLYN :-)ReplyDelete
