With a starring vehicle like "Burlesque" to promote, Christina Aguilera's had to go back to getting a little dirty.

The New York Daily News reports that BBC.co.uk -- the network and country's TV-regulation body -- logged in over 1,000 complaints after the show's finale last Saturday. Apparently viewers didn't like how Xtina and her crew of scantily clad backup dancers were shaking and shimmying their goods while performing the title song from her new movie.

London's Daily Mail reported that complaining viewers thought the performance broke an Office of Communications (their version of the FCC) code protecting children from "unsuitable content" before 9 PM. (The show aired between 7:00 and 9:00.) In light of the fact that as many as four million kids could have been watching, Lynne Featherstone, Britain's Equalities Minister, called the showpiece "a bit much."

Meanwhile, Christina told MTV.com at the U.K. premiere of "Burlesque," "I don't think there is such a thing as too raunchy when it comes to the art form of burlesque. It's very empowering to women to feel confident in their own skin and in their bodies, and this represents that."

You can check out her "X Factor" performance for yourself here. OK, now HERE'S a burning question for you: How is this performance any more provocative than anything we see (at all hours!) from the likes of Lady Gaga, Madonna or Britney Spears? I mean, the movie's called "BURLESQUE," for crying out loud! Should Xtina have come out in sweatpants?!

What do you guys think?

There is a reason why young children should NOT be exposed to flagrant sexuality and it is this: They’re NOT READY for it. If you want to continue seeing teenage girls getting knocked up for fame and fortune or just because they’ve got nothing else to look forward to, keep on showing them that THAT kind of behavior is what is wanted, and expected of them in order to fit in. Who sets the stage for that?- the people they look up to like models, movie stars and artists. NOT APPROPRIATE!
