Johnny Weir: Recording Artist?
Johnny Weir, the three time U.S. figure stating champion, future book author and star of Sundance Channel’s “Be Good Johnny Weir”, is taking a new route with his career.
He has his sights on the VMA’s. Mr. Weir is going to take on the music industry.
Weir told People, “I’ve been working a lot on my voice – if I only do one song in my life, I want it to be a huge success. My main goal is to perform it at the VMAs. I want to come out on a little circle of ice from underneath the stage or something crazy like that!”
The dramatic figure skater may be coming to TV sets and radios near you soon; he begins recording this month. It’ll probably sound like the fairy interpretation of Lady Gaga’s music…could be fun…right?
Pictured at the 2010 Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s Hot Pink Party in New York City on April 27th, Weir added, “People talk about how trashy it is to use 15 minutes of fame, but I’m trying to pursue all of this in a professional way and do the best I can. I don’ t care if I fail. I just have fun trying to do these things.” It looks like he’s having fun so far, so we’ll just have to see what’s next.
