Julianne Hough’s fans are loyal – to her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Lexi.
“I did a show last night in Madison, Wis., and [fans] had signs that said ‘Go, Lexi!’, ‘She’s the cutest dog in the world!’ and ‘We love Lexi!’” Hough told People. “I’m like, ‘Okay, my dog is more famous than I am.”
Hough can certainly understand their devotion. The “Dancing with the Stars” hoofer turned country music singer says she recently got a digital camera – a 21st birthday gift from boyfriend, country singer Chuck Wicks – and before she knew it, “I’ve got a thousand pictures, and they’re all of Lexi,” she says.
Fans even ask Hough whether Lexi tweets. “People are always like, ‘[Lexi] needs to have her own Twitter account!,’” Hough says.
So, will it happen?
“I don’t think so,” laughs Hough, who’s touring with George Strait. “I’ll keep my dog humble.”
Hough’s self-titled debut album hit stores last year.
