The 30-year-old DWTS dancer and last season’s champ discussed keeping things fresh on the show and more! Here’s what he shared…
On staying fresh after all these years on DWTS: “I try and stay current. I try and get back to New York as much as I can, because of the inspiration that’s in the city. I feel like variety, diversity, culture, history, passion – these [are] all things I find really, really inspiring….The fact that there are so many people within the city with different views. It motivates my curiosity. I think that’s what keeps me going and inspired – the ability to learn something new everyday.”
On his favorite song right now: “To be honest – I love all genres, but I grew up in Brooklyn, New York – so I’m a hip hop head, an old school one. Right now, A$AP Ferg’s new song gets me – “New Level.” I can’t contain myself, dude – that beat drops really heavily.”
