Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Brandy

Brandy Has the Hots for Dance Partner

Brandy has already slipped into her dancing shoes in anticipation of her upcoming stint as a contestant during the 11th season of “Dancing with the Stars.” Pictured above with her dancing partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Bran’Nu gazes at an iPad in the dance studio before working up a hunger and heading over to Japanese eatery Katsuya for a team building dinner.

She might have to slow down on the extracurricular activities with Chmerkovskiy though. “Damn, he would make such a HOT boyfriend but let me just focus on dancing..SMH at,” the 31-year-old tweeted.

Ironically, Ms. Norwood claims to have two left feet, telling that she’s never been good at nailing choreography. “What people don’t understand is I have never been a good dancer!” Brandy said. “Dancing has never been one of my strongest points. With this show, you have to do things you’ve never done before, and I’ve never done anything like this. It’s a whole new experience!”

The new season of “DWTS” is set to premiere Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
