PureDWTS Rant: Do We Need To Do More To Help Protect Artists, Dancers, Etc. When They Tour? (RIP Christina Grimmie)

As most of you probably have heard, The Voice’s Christina Grimmie was sadly killed by a gunman at a Meet And Greet Friday night. Our hearts go out to her, her friends and family, fans, and everyone who knew, worked, and loved her. As you might remember, Christina has performed several times on Dancing With The Stars in the past. What a senseless tragedy. Once again, the world mourns for a beautiful and innocent person’s passing and wonders why there aren’t more gun restrictions and help for the mentally ill in this country. Many are also asking why we don’t have more security at venues for our artists in protecting them like we do at airports, etc. Dylan Chambers said it all below for how I feel. Let’s hope TPTB of all the dancing, singing, and entertainment tours coming up now and in the future are prepared to up security because we need to do everything we can to protect our dancers and artists (and us) from being hurt while they bring so much joy, talent, and creativity to the world. Special thanks to Heidi and Dee for our conversation at twitter for the inspiration for this post too. Do you have thoughts on this as well? If so, make them heard in comments. xx

DWTS Julianne Hough Has Purchased Two Dresses For Her Wedding, Wedding Before Year’s End

Just a little fun rumor from the Las Vegas Sun. Not sure it’s true, but they are reporting Julianne Hough has purchased two dresses for her wedding to Brooks Laich. Not only that, the article says Julianne let it slip that the wedding will take place by the end of the year.

“Dancing With the Stars” pro dancer and judge Julianne Hough, who hosted Sunday’s 2016 Miss USA Pageant at T-Mobile Arena alongside Terrence J (“106 & Park”) on Fox, let slip that she has purchased two dresses for her wedding to fiance Toronto Maple Leafs star Brooks Laich.

The onetime Las Vegas resident and sister of “DWTS” pro dancer Derek Hough says she has two outfits selected — one for the ceremony and one for the reception to take place before year’s end.

Awww, I can’t wait for this event. More at the the Las Vegas Sun on other rumors out there. Thanks to Lori for the heads up.

Mark Ballas And BC Jean Talk On Their Wedding Plans, Their New EP, Touring, And More

In a new interview with Celebrity café, Mark Ballas and BC Jean talk on their new EP and Tour this summer. They are ready to hit the road and have fun. They also talked on their wedding plans and much more.

“I want to do an outdoor wedding, but we’ll have to see if it’s the right vibe,” BC Jean said about their upcoming nuptials.

Due to their entertaining talent, the couple and band duo may be performing at the wedding.

Ballas said, “Knowing me, I’ll end up on stage. I know it’s going to be a hell of a dance party this year.”

“We’ll probably have a lot of friends who will want to perform and get up there,” BC Jean said.

When it comes to the wedding party, rumors have surfaced that Derek Hough will be Mark Ballas’ best man. The two grew up together, but Mark kept his plans under wraps. Fingers crossed for you Derek!

Getting married is not the only venture in Ballas and Jean’s relationship. They’re both in a band called Alexander Jean, whose EP is out on iTunes Friday June 3.

“We just left performing on Live with Kelly which was incredible,” Ballas said about their performance of the new track titled, “Thief.”

“We’re going on tour this summer it’s called the Head High Tour and our first date is on June 17. It will be in Santa Ana,” Ballas said.

“We’re going be out on the road for a little over a month. We’re just looking forward playing a different city, touring around, meeting the fans, and getting to share our music with everybody. It’s been a really great ride since we released “Roses and Violets” last year. The song did so well,” he continued.

BC describes their genre as pop, soul, and rock. She said, “The album has a lot of cool elements to it it’s hard to categorize it.”

The 30-year-old previous DWTS champion and recently runner up, has a lot going for him in 2016, including a wedding, band tour, and non-smoking campaign, all with fiancée BC Jean by his side.

To read the full interview, see Celebrity café. To pre-order Alexander Jean’s new “Head High” EP, see iTunes. For concert and ticket information to see their new summer tour taking place in a city near you, see Adventures In Wonderland or AlexanderJean.net.

ETA: You can watch Mark and BC on People Now as well.
