Julianne Hough: Christina Aguilera is Phenomenal

Julianne Hough is all smiles as she leaves MTV Studios after her appearance on It’s On with Alexa Chung on Wednesday afternoon (December 8) in NYC.

The 21-year-old budding starlet recently caught up with The Boot to chat about all of her upcoming projects — a new album, Burlesque and Footloose — as well as Christina Aguilera. Check it:

On the upcoming Footloose: “We start shooting ‘Footloose’ 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. It’s gonna be fun to do.”

On filming and singing with Christina Aguilera: “She knows what she wants, and she’s phenomenal at everything she does. I was in the studio with her the other day and I was flipping out because she’s been my idol since she first came out, so it was just a really cool experience for me just being there and watching how she works. I was blown away! Her voice is so phenomenal, and hearing her sing these new songs is just amazing.”

On working on her new album: “My first record was great for what it was, and it was very positive and lighthearted and everything, but it was very quick. I did it in three weeks. It was kind of just, ‘Alright, go sing these songs,’ and so you go do it. You put your trust in everybody and kind of doubt yourself. But this time around 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. On my last record I tried to just sing, but this time I want to do everything. I want to give my fans that know me as a dancer and like me from the show something, too. I still want to make them happy and pleased. Plus, it’s inside of me and I want to be able to dance in some music videos and have some fun at that, too.”
