Music and TV icons Donny and Marie Osmond talked to Parade.com about their long career together, how their family keeps them grounded, why the sibling rivalry is real and much more.
Here are some highlights:
Their advice to today’s young stars like Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift?
Donnie: It’s a bumpy rollercoaster ride. Hang in there buddy because if you can just maintain your integrity with your music and who you are, you can ride that rollercoaster and not get bruised. Don’t take anything for granted.
Marie: Keep working and keep reinventing yourself and have your passion. I’ve always said if you’re not nervous before you go on stage to do a good job, than you shouldn’t be going on stage. And take care of your instrument. People joke and call us wholesome, but I’ve watched many of my peers lose their talents and overdose and die and get so out of it that they couldn’t even perform anymore. Be grateful for the gift you’ve been given.
