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.

Growing up skinny, socially awkward and with a weird craft, I always wanted to be cool. I always wanted to be popular and I dreamt constantly of being like Justin, Joey, Lance, Chris and J.C. from *NSYNC, of being a star. I wasn’t prepared however, for the flip-side of popularity. I wasn’t prepared that everything you say will have a 50/50 response, that complete strangers hate you for no reason aside from the fact that you didn’t believe the same things they did. I wasn’t prepared., "Johnny's World: Popular" September 19, 2013
