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.

Somehow, in this crazy, twisted mind of mine, I went from a beautiful Massenet piece, Meditation, to slapping my ass for all to see to Lady Gaga, within about 15 minutes, with full hair and makeup changes. So, that's me, that's who I am. This show tonight was who I am from start to finish, classical to not.

Blogger's note: But at one time, Johnny didn't think a "butt wiggle" was his style.
