She may be gone from Dancing with the Stars, but Julianne Hough is still very much in the news.
To the delight of men around the world.
The gorgeous country singer will star in an upcoming remake of Footloose and is also releasing a new album. She spoke on both in a new interview, excerpts from which are below...
On Footloose: “We start shooting in March. The first film was so great, I think it was at a time where the economy was down then, and the troops were out, and I feel like we’re in a very similar situation now. I feel like everybody wants that back, that fun energy that musical movies have. Everybody loves the movie, and I’m really excited about it."
On filming and singing with Christina Aguilera: “She knows what she wants, and she’s phenomenal at everything she does... Her voice is so phenomenal, and hearing her sing these new songs is just amazing.”
On her new album: "I know exactly what I want and I’m not doubting myself. And I’ve got a little more confidence. It’s more mature and a little more edgy - not necessarily rock ‘n’ roll edgy, but maturity-wise. Being a dancer, there’s a lot more grooves in my songs but very real, sincere lyrics."
Hough didn't say if she'd ever return to the DWTS floor, but as long as she's posing for photos, we're pretty much happy.
