Julianne Hough recently posed nude on the cover of a magazine but what she said during her interview was far more revealing than the photos. Now, Hough is reflecting about coming out as not straight, and how the admission has affected her sense of self.
The Americas Got Talent judge opened up about her marriage to husband Brooks Laich during the interview and made headlines when she recalled a conversation shed had with him. I [told him], You know Im not straight, right? Hough told Womens Health. And he was like, Im sorry, what? I was like, Im not. But I choose to be with you.'
While Hough did not flat-out say she identifies as bisexual, the fact that she publicly identifies as not straight despite the fact that shes currently in a marriage with a man matters. Its a major step in the fight against bi-erasure, and opening up about her sexuality has helped Hough feel like shes finally living her most authentic life as well.
I have never felt more like a woman in my life, and Ive always been the girl next door, all-American sweetheart. And thats a version and a part of me, but its not all of who I am, and I didnt even know that about me. So the last few years have been about me picking up all parts of who I am and the parts that Ive suppressed over probably 25 years, the dancer said, as People reports.
She also shared that deciding to come out to her husband was tough. I was connecting to the woman inside that doesnt need anything, versus the little girl that looked to him to protect me, she told People. I was like, Is he going to love this version of me? But the more I dropped into my most authentic self, the more attracted he was to me.
Publicly embracing her sexuality has clearly made Hough feel empowered in a whole new way. To that effect, she recently released her first single in ten years, and its called fittingly enough Transform.
For two years I have been picking those pieces up, nurturing them and transforming them. Im not trying to change who I am or suppress those parts of me anymore but instead, I acknowledge them, take them and TRANSFORM them, Hough wrote in a recent Instagram post in honor of the single. As I was doing that in my daily life, I realized all of a sudden that my creativity, my life blood, the entire essence of WHO I AM was coming ALIVE.
It’s total bs in an effort to become relevant.
All the cool kids are doing it.
Celebs do this when they want to become “Popular” saw her sing on the America’s Got Talent finale last week, absolutely AWFUL doesn’t even begin to describe it so no wonder she is coming out as whatever the heck she is coming out as
Who ?! Kill your tv set.
I agree. She sounds like she’s trying way too hard to score some points here.
And he was like...
I was like...
How about talking like an adult?

The language of morons.
Husband is former NHL center with Ottawa, Washington, Toronto and LA.
Shades of the movie “Slapshot.”
Does he make any money cause it sounds like she’s saying - I don’t need you but you need me.
A big fat who the hell cares? NEXT!
So cute. So totally deranged and disordered. Julianne needs to find Jesus.
Came out as not right in the head.
Hough was born in Orem, Utah, the youngest of five children in a Latter-Day Saint family.

Great movie. Its on TUBI.
I have a friend whose psychotic girlfriend declared to him: "You made me a lesbian!"
He was shocked at the time, but we have a good laugh about it now.
