Seeing as though 49 out of the 50 states have snow somewhere in them right now, we could all use a little bit of a pick-me-up. I don’t know what your idea of a pick-me-up is, but mine involves figure skater Johnny Weir dressed as a poor man’s Black Swan ice dancing to his new single (as in song single) “Dirty Love” on “The Today Show.” As the old adage goes, “If you don’t like Johnny Weir, there’s something wrong with you.” And by “old adage” I mean “personal belief.”
Johnny Weir is known and loved for his flamboyance and unique style both on and off the ice, and he’s definitely delivering to his fan base with “Dirty Love.” It basically sounds exactly like what you think a song by Johnny Weir would sound like–a goth club at 4 a.m./used glitter/the male Ke$ha/Depeche Mode (Only a little bit! Relax!). In other words, it sounds like we should be friends with Johnny Weir.
As for Johnny Weir’s journey from figure skater to pop star, we wish him the best of luck! He might be the first person in history trying to make that transition, unless you are one of one people that considered Tonya Harding’s foray into boxing a career move.
