"I may have put my foot in my mouth when I said I wasn't going to come back next season," Hough told Entertainment Tonight followingDancing with the Stars' live seventh-season finale broadcast on Tuesday night. "I just meant that maybe I'll come back next season, maybe I won't."
The two-time Dancing with the Stars professional champ had previously stated she would not be back for the show's spring installment.
"Maybe I'll take a season off here -- like maybe this next one, maybe the one in the fall," Hough clarified to Entertainment Tonight. "But [I'm] definitely going to take one off to focus on the music."
Hough added "there's a chance" that she might still compete in the spring.
"We're still talking about it and everything," she told Entertainment Tonight. "So yeah, I said I might have put my foot in my mouth."
