Julianne Hough Talks Derek and Dancing

Interesting article from Julianne kind of echoing what Derek had to say to ET about an eventual retirement from dancing and the possibility of marriage. From CBS News 8 (click the link to read the whole thing):

The 29-year-old dancer isn’t looking to walk down the aisle again — but she is looking forward to planning the big day for her older brother, Derek, when the time comes.

“1000 percent,” Julianne told ET’s Lauren Zima on Tuesday of whether she’d like to plan his wedding (Derek told ET it was either that or he’d elope). “I would love it so much.”

——

“He’s kind of where he’s at, enjoying life, and he’s very focused on the next chapter of his life too, with his career,” Julianne told ET on Friday. “He’s my best friend and whenever it happens, I’ll be so happy. Or if it never happens, I’ll be so happy. Who knows?!”

——-

“Derek and I have a different sort of passion and love for it. I’m OK to maybe not be on stage every night performing, while I think Derek still loves that feeling of being on stage performing,” Julianne said. “I might not be on stage, touring around the country forever, but I don’t think I’ll ever stop dancing.”

ETA: Vogue here and below is a video…

Full Interview: Derek Hough Talks to Desiree Murphy about Parks, Passion Projects and More

So, Desiree Murphy put together a really great feature on Derek for Entertainment Tonight!! It’s a written article with several smaller videos sprinkled through out – you’ll need to visit ET to read and see the whole thing. I’ve put a couple things below as a teaser. 🙂

At any given moment during our outdoor adventure, Hough would stop what he was doing to make sure everyone in our group was doing OK, and he constantly tried to make others feel comfortable by lightening the mood. When one of the park rangers had us stop and smell a piece of a Sassafras branch, for instance, Hough joked he would “definitely wear” the citrusy scent as cologne. (In his defense it did smell amazing, but if I’m being completely honest, I can’t say I had the same initial reaction.)

Fans of Hough are likely familiar with his artsy videos, like a new piece called “Hold On,” which he teased on Instagram Stories with a photo of his face partially covered in blood a day before our trip. It features an original song he wrote five years ago, and the story he’s hoping to tell is one that’s close to his heart: that of mental illness and suicide prevention.

“If anything, it’s actually the opposite,” he continues. “It’s made me go, ‘You know what? I’ve seen Julianne’s love with Brooks’ — them together, seeing what they have — and it makes me want to make sure. I want to marry once. I want to be with that person that I love dearly. I want to get to know that person. I feel like if anything, it’s something that I don’t feel like should be rushed into doing at all.”
