Christina Aguilera thinks there is no such thing as being "too raunchy".

The 29-year-old singer-and-actress thinks the "art form" of burlesque dancing is "empowering" to women and can never be too sexual.

Speaking at the UK premiere of her movie 'Burlesque' at the Empire cinema in London's Leicester Square, she told BANG Showbiz: "I don't think there is such a thing as too raunchy when it comes to the art form of burlesque. I think it's very empowering to women to feel confident in their own skin and their own bodies and I think this movie definitely represents that."

The blonde star makes her big screen debut in the movie and admitted she was nervous stepping on set for the first time but soon rose to the challenges of filmmaking.

She said: "It was scary at times and being a newcomer I definitely had a lot to face and new challenges everyday but I had an amazing time and got focused and down to business."

Christina was joined at the premiere by the movie's lead actress Cher and a host of other stars including Kristen Bell, Cam Gigandet and Chelsea Traille.

Guests walked a special Pink carpet and Christina braved the cold to meet fans and sign autographs.
