Johnny Weir

Whether witty or wise, controversial or charming, shocking or silly, sweet or sassy, provocative or profound, inspiring or infuriating--or any combination of those--Johnny Weir, the three-time U.S. Champion, two-time Olympian, and World medalist figure skater, almost always says something worth quoting whenever he commentates a skating competition, makes a TV appearance, gives an interview, holds a press conference, writes, tweets, or is caught on video. His quotes needed to be collected and shared; hence this blog.

That thing when your dry cleaning team holds up one of your weird articles and asks, “Johnny, what is this?” “Oh that’s a skirt diaper.”

I don't want anyone to think that I sneeze, blow my nose, eat, go to the bathroom, nothing. I'm just a plate. I'm just a porcelain white plate in a good outfit that sits there and is stunning.

I want an Emmy really badly. I don't care what I have to do for it. I'll put scorpions in my pants at this point.

@NetflixLifee tweeted: Name a canceled show that isn't on Netflix that you'd like to see get picked up.

'Be Good Johnny Weir' is a good one. It's like 'The Hunger Games' and 'Black Swan' mixed with the Olympics and OCD.

I don’t have a lot of time for anything. I don’t have a personal life, I have very few friendly outings, I am constantly on an airplane and working. I’m very busy and Windex hotel rooms for fun.

I could’ve signed with that first agency at 16 years old and completely whitewashed myself. But I would have been boring. I would have never had the career I’ve had. I stuck to my guns and we created this brand and my agency, they support me as a human being.…Being the absolute truest brand of myself has been the greatest career asset I’ve had.

A long day ahead that would be better spent in bed or shopping for dragon clothes with the Khaleesi. Up and at 'em!
