Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Maksim Chmerkovskiy Done with Dancing With The Stars

Maksim Chmerkovskiy is officially done with dancing! During his appearance on The View on July 29, the dancer announced he will no longer perform on ABC’s hit dancing competition, Dancing With the Stars!

“I’m done dancing,” he said on the daytime talk show. “I feel like it’s time.” Maks continued, explaining his decision, “When I came back to the show, it was not the same—I was different, probably. (He first left in February 2013 after season 16.) “When I came back, I saw this amazing talent…I looked at it and thought they can do much more and better. I was taking up a huge spot.”

This year, he returned for season 18, and took home the Mirrorball trophy for the first time with Olympic ice skater Meryl Davis.After his win, Maks first hinted that he was ready to leave the competition behind for good during an interview with Social Life magazine. “I want Meryl to be the last person I dance with,” he said in June. “The last person I got to be passionate with and care so much for.” The dancer apparently discussed plans to start a family, too. “I raised so many children at the studio that I am ready to create one of my own,” he told the mag. “I am really ready to have a family now. I need an outlet. I have so much I want to give, and I need someone to give it to.

Maks first appeared on DWTS in its second season, dancing with some top stars like boxer Laila Ali, the Spice Girls’ Mel B., and singer Brandy. I don’t blame him for wanting to move on to something new. He has his Mirrorball now. It’s time to move on to the next adventure!

Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens Dance To Beyonce’s “Run The World”

Who run the world?! High School Musical alum Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale went to North Hollywood’s Millennium Dance Complex Thursday for a fun dance time and shared the video of them rocking out to Beyonce‘s “Run the World (Girls) with fans.

“Dance class with @slaughteration and Nessa #whoruntheworld,” Ashley tweeted before going into the studio with bestie Vanessa and choreographer Jeri Slaughter.

According to Us Weekly, Vanessa — who stars in the upcoming Journey 2 — credits dance with helping keep her in shape while she filmed the movie in Hawaii.

“I’m a very physical person. I love working out so [on set] it was just a matter of keeping my stamina up and I just made sure my cardio was in good shape,” Hudgens told Us Weekly at the movie’s premiere in L.A. this past Thursday. “I love, love, love working out. Anything from dancing — which me and my best friend Ashley did today — to kickboxing. I love it!” “I love dancing. I own it and I think as long as you own what you’re doing, it’s fun to show the world. Why not?” she told Us. Check out the video below!

Ashley Tisdale and Vanessa Hudgens Dance to “Run The World”

As a Beyonce stan, I’m usually skeptical of other people singing, dancing, or even humming along to any one of her songs. But I have to admit, these ladies did a very good job! Burning calories and having fun!
