Three cheers for Xtina on 'CSI: NY'

95837__xtina_lLook, I know that sometimes I’m as predictable as an episode of Ugly Betty, but I hope you’ll indulge me for one more round of "Isn’t Christina Aguilera Totally Genius?" Word on the street is Xtina’s in talks to guest-star in an upcoming episode of CSI: NY, to which I’d like to give a big, heartfelt "Woot!" Not because I’m a huge fan of the show, but more because it’s refreshing to see a pop diva with acting aspirations who realizes that it might not be the best course of action to leap directly into a big-screen, big-budget starring vehicle (see Carey, M.; Simpson, J.; Spears, B.). I mean, a gal ought to try to crawl before she enters a marathon, no? Better still, according to TV Guide, Xtina’s CSI turn will likely focus on domestic abuse, which happens to be one of the singer’s pet causes, and include her music on the soundtrack.

This concludes another round of "Isn’t Christina Aguilera Totally Genius?" Feel free to concur (or disagree) in the comments section below.

    Of the three hottie Blonde singers, I’ve always thought that Britney could dance, Jessica could jiggle, but only X-ina could actually sing. I’m not always the biggest fan of her outfit choices, but think she’s got some good moments. Her, Gwen Stefani and Missy Misdemeanor need to get together and jam out some bumpin’ beats next…
    PS X-ina’s duet with Tony Bennet was the Sh*T!

  • Lora

    It took me awhile, but I must agree…Xtina IS totally genius.

  • Mozz

    as a screenwriter, who is just in pre-production to direct and independent, I have Christina Aguilera in my dream list of actors I’d love to work with someday. Not only did I know she would make the transfer to the acting world, but I my instict tells me she will be the one and only one of that group of singers to rake in awards for it. Mrs. Aguilera, Total Genius.

  • brandonk

    I concur! I’m not going to watch the show if she does it, but good for her anyway. Also, her duet with Tony Bennett was great…not that that comes as a surprise to anyone.

  • Ed

    Slezak, loving you for loving Xtina in this whole love-fest blog!

  • Nancy

    Totally agree. Her newest CD should get nominated for a Grammy (and I mean Album of the Year). Keep singing her praises!

  • Ceballos

    I think that, if she wanted to, Xtina (or is it now ex-Xtina?) could have a very nice career ahead of herself acting, and this is a smart move toward that.
    I LOVED her hosting SNL a few years ago and her impersonation of Kim Cattrall’s Samantha on a “Sex and the City” skit.
    “Actually, I’m a dude.”

    After seeing her on SNL (last year) doing Samantha from Sex in the City…she can be on any show, she actually has talent andis really quite funny.
    Good for her not jumping into the big screen and having the publicity machine rache it up to 11 to make people interested….she is getting her acting chops…what a rare thing for a celebrity to do these days…actually work at something! Kudos.

  • Shelby

    I wouldn’t really call it “genius”. Just that she’s seen what’s happened to those other singers and wants to not have the pressure of performing in a whole movie, rather be in just a few scenes. It’s a very obvious move, that people will applaud…hence these posts below.
    Also, I don’t buy her “acting”, as her video for Hurt is very Acting Studio 101, with the fake tear (or glitter?) on her cheek.
    Although Madonna is not known for her acting, I think she has the best acting chops, what with her SNL skits, movies, videos, etc. She just found it difficult for the audience to differentiate between her persona and her characters…not her fault-our fault. That is why she was more believable in her early roles and Evita.

    It is actually a good move for Xtina to do the TV first, this way she’ll veer away from the shadow of following the footsteps of Mariah Carey. It’s not that Mariah is not good but Mariah had established her image as a pop diva extraordinaire. Mariah wants to branch out too in the movie world, she did Glitter & that movie with Mira Sorvino but she has a lot to prove in this field. I guess its time for Xtina to establish her own path as a performer. Goodluck to her!

  • jaime

    I think this is probably the one thing that separates her from Mariah. Start small, build it up from there. But what’s gonna be “big” for her then? CSI: Miami? Two and a Half Men? I really can’t see her holding her own in Robert Alman or Steven Speilberg’s next movie.

  • Juile

    I love her new album but I have to say that I wish she had her own look instead of trying to be something she’s not. I really don’t think she’s as classy as she let’s on, I mean come on not too long ago she had that dirty look and know she’s changed, I don’t buy it for a minute.

  • Anna

    i like her and all, but csi:ny? k.fed and danny bonaducci managed to make it on the worthwile leg of the trio.

  • junior

    While I’m not the biggest Xtina fan musically, I do appreciate any celeb who actually thinks about their career instead of doing whatever their agents tell them to do. After watching the “Hurt” video, I could tell that Christina, excuse you, wants to be a serious actress. “CSI:NY” is a top-rated show so, way to go. Don’t hate TV, remember, that’s where Janet started.

  • Umm….

    Not sure if she’s a genius, I actually think the choice of show is kinda bad…like why CSI: NY? She should go on Grey’s Anatomy as a victim of domestic abuse, cuz that shows not so ghetto, like CSI: NY isn’t exactly regarded as the best show on T.V., which GA is (to some). OR DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES!!!!!! SHE SHOULD GO ON THAT NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!
