Hey check it out! It’s our girl Annika, chillin’ with super fierce and flamboyant Olympic ice skater Johnny Weir backstage at the Chris Benz show during fashion week. Annika talked to Johnny on behalf of FurInsider.com about fur trends in fashion. Annika looks so fuzzy, I wish I could reach through the screen for a cuddly group hug. Check out more of her interviews for Fur Insider here. Keep reading »
“In a sexual way, I’m gay. But I would marry a woman tomorrow if it struck me. I don’t think sex and relationships necessarily have to go together.”
– Johnny Weir talks about his sexuality in his new memoir on what appears to be “Celebrities Talking About Maybe Being Gay Day.” The flamboyant ice skater decided to basically confirm what the universe already knew because “with people killing themselves and being scared into the closet, I hope that even just one person can gain strength from my story.” [People via Queerty] Keep reading »
Confession: I actually watched “Skating With The Stars.” I was mostly just curious to see Vince Neil of legendary rock band Mötley Crüe get on the ice. Yes, I went through a hard rock phase in elementary school. GNR forever! There’s something about an old, bloated, alchie try to do a one of those spinny things that tickles my funny bone. Predictably, watching Vince tumble and fumble was the highlight of the show, aside from judge Johnny Weir skating to Lady Gaga. I’ll save you the trouble of watching the rest of the show. It was just as ridiculous and insufferably boring as it sounds. Keep reading »
Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.
We were shocked upon seeing this 1992 photo of Anna Wintour in her shiny shirt-skirt getup. We have to wonder which would be less painful: wearing the Vogue editor’s fashion faux pas or something out of Johnny Weir‘s closet? Thing is, we’re not sure there’s much of a difference … Keep reading »
“I’ve always been comfortable with who I am. When it comes to my sexuality, I just finished the chapter in my book [to be released in January] about my sexuality and my idea of it. I haven’t discussed it — not because I’m ashamed of anything you’ll read about when my book comes out — I just don’t want to put it out there in a way where someone can twist my words. While I don’t believe in masculinity and femininity, I don’t believe in a purely gay person or a purely straight person. I have a very clear opinion of my own sexuality. I’m not saying anything about my sexuality because I want it to be out there in my own words.”
— Johnny Weir, the skating world’s most flamboyantly dressed performer, prefers to keep some things private — at least until his book comes out in January. Whatevs, we think “comfortable with who I am” is a great way to be! [Queerty.com]
It’s hard not to love our gay boyfriend Johnny Weir: not only is this Olympic ice skater confident with who he is, his closet would make Paris Hilton weep. He recently opened his closet up to Bluefly.com — actually, make that his closets. Johnny lives in a two-bedroom apartment in New Jersey with two walk-in closets and one room just for clothes. He’s got a red Army soldier’s hat, a “Martian bubble coat” from Gareth Pugh, Louis Vuitton “millionaire” sunglasses, tons of “long, shiny, pointy shoes” and a Balenciaga tree for bags. Materialistic swoon!
The ice skating diva came to the Kentucky Derby in style, respecting tradition by wearing a fabulous fetching chapeau. Speaking of the Derby, did y’all watch? I lost $20 betting on the filly, but what can I say, I always gotta support the ladies. [Louisville, KY, 5/1/10] Keep reading »
“Evan is fine as a person. We’ve been competitors for years and years and years and that’s kinda the forefront to us being people to each other. I think he worked very hard and he deserved that Olympic gold medal and he does a good job. He does his work. But as a person I don’t really know him that well and we’ve never really made the effort to be nice to each other. And I won’t watch him [on 'Dancing With the Stars.'].”
