Julianne Hough would like you to know that she dumped Ryan Seacrest—he didn’t dump her.
Despite their 14 year age difference the two dated for three years and seemed the “perfect couple” right up till announcing the end of their romance last year.
The 25-year-old is opening up about their split in a new interview with Redbook—and it appears to be that old gem of “it’s not you, it’s me..”
“There was nothing wrong or bad, but there was nothing right,” Hough, who is now happily dating Hockey player Brooks Laich, says of her past love.
“I had one foot out because I didn’t want to get hurt. And I didn’t say what was on my mind because I didn’t want to ruffle any feathers.”
She goes on to say that the fact she was holding back eventually doomed her relationship with Seacrest.
“I needed to be perfect. Now I’m not holding anything back because I’d rather get my heart broken than never know what it is to be completely, madly in love,” she says.
“If I had been this open in my last relationship, who knows?”
So, what changed? Why is she now open to love?
“I had this epiphany when my family went to a six-day seminar [last November] about creating your own destiny,” she says. “I was not into it at first, but I learned so much about myself and why my relationships didn’t work that by the end I was on a high.”
HBO's "Euphoria" was honored for making mental illness and queer identity literally shine in the spotlight.
At just 24 years old, Zendaya has become the youngest Emmy winner for best lead actress–further proving that Gen Z is better at getting sh*t done.
Beating her fellow nominees Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show) and Laura Linney (Ozark), Zendaya was honored for her performance in HBO's glitter-and-hormone-soaked Euphoria and made history at last night's Emmy Awards. She beat the prior record held by Jodie Comer, who won for her work in Killing Eve just last year–at the ripe old age of 26.
Perhaps these respective icons of Zoomer ennui and homicidal Millennial burnout are symbols that younger generations are finally assuming their own positions of power and using their collective voice to highlight issues that have been historically shamed and marginalized, such as mental illness and queer identity. Or maybe their makeup's just really pretty.
Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
