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.'].”
Our friend Sara Benincasa is what you might call a litttttttle boy crazy. It seems like every other week she has a new celebrity crush that she just can’t stop obsessing over. This week she sent us this little video confessing her love for a certain “controversial” sportsman who she has not-so “family friendly” feelings about … check out what I mean, above! Keep reading »
The Stars On Ice Tour will hit rinks on April 1 and stars like Evan Lysacek and Sasha Cohen will triple-axle their way across 40 cities in the U.S. But one Olympian whom the public love love loves won’t be there: Johnny Weir. An anonymous source has told the Gay And Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) that tour sponsors like Smuckers and IMG Entertainment nixed Weir from participating because he is not “family friendly.” Keep reading »
“Every little boy should be so lucky as to turn into me. And that’s all I have to say.”
– Ice skater Johnny Weir‘s response to homophobic haters in an interview with “Access Hollywood.” Weir also addressed the comments made by two French commentators, who made jokes questioning Weir’s gender, at a press conference — check it out above. We love you Johnny! [Access Hollywood] Keep reading »
My favorite figure skater ever, Johnny Weir, prepared for his Vancouver Olympic performance by, um, cleaning his hotel suite. Weir told People, “I was nervous. So I Lemon Pledged everything in my room. Some people eat, some people drink—but I Pledge everything.” [People]
It appears that many Olympians have their own rituals, from lucky Pledge to lucky charms. Here are a few of the wackiest. Keep reading »
