He wrote (http://www.sundancechannel.com/sunfiltered/2010/06/johnny-weir-looks-back-at-the-olympics-fortius-altius-maximus/) about Olympics:



So I think he would put on the podium neither Takhashi nor Lambiel.

After such statement I wondered if he ever even tried to understand how COP works.

Judging by some of his programmers he didn't even bother reading the rules, nevermind understanding them

This is NOT appropriate attire for a ballet gala.

http://bfanyc.com/home/photo/404451#anchorMarge, I'm surprised by your conservatism. You may not like what he's wearing, but Johnny's outfit seems to be very much on trend as captured by Bill Cunningham this week (http://video.nytimes.com/video/2012/06/08/fashion/100000001595905/bill-cunningham-frontiersmen.html) (see the end of this video). If one can't be part of the fashion vanguard at the ballet or any other arts event, then we may as well all just shop at Brooks Brothers and Talbots so that we never risk offending anyone. :yawn:

Back to Johnny's skating, he seems to have a very difficult time letting go of the 6.0 mindset that falling is the worst thing. I think this hampered his success in later years because he seemed so focused on not falling that he often appeared to hold himself back in his performance. He needs to let go of that idea if he wants to advance.

Johnny makes my skin crawl. I posted this in the "NYC Ballet Fans" thread, but I'm reposting here. This is NOT appropriate attire for a ballet gala.

How is that not appropriate? If anything, that look is a little passe, but not inappropriate.

I happen to be a Johnny fan and many times I do cringe at his wardrobe choices, but I had the pleasure of meeting him several times and he is one of the nicest people I have ever met. I admire that no matter how tired he is after a long plane ride or after a show, he will not hesitate to, not only sign autographs but talk to the fans and listen to what they have to say.

sometimes I thought maybe he's not that pretentious as he seems.He's like a actor when he leaves the fans,be outspoken,pretentious,never wore appropriate attire,try to attract the limelight to get fame and money,just like a job.

You expect appropriate from Weir? He is intentionally provocative and inappropriate, it satisfied his hunger for attention.

Nail. Hit. On. Head.

I used to be a Weir fan but now I just find him very boring. There's nothing new, innovative or creative about anything he does, says or wears. His silly efforts at being shocking and outrageous have just become SO predictable. :yawn:

Johnny .... your "fifteen minutes" have expired.

Always a laugh to count how many people say they hate Johnny yet read his interviews and take the time to comment on them.

Why do these threads always turn into "bash-fests"?
If you have a negative opinion of him, why read, or post in them?

It's not that bad surely. When he's sitting down it'll look like a tuxedo. It's not like it's a meat dress.

If you perceive Johnny threads as bashfests and that bothers you, why do you read them? You could just read the interview and skip the posts.

Right?

This isn't a fan board. Anything posted here always gets a variety of opinions, both positive and negative.

Prancer, my point was that almost any mention of Johnny - or his activities - degenerates into bashing.
I hope that I'm free to express my dislike of that, here.

Of course you are. Did I say something to indicate that you weren't free to express your thoughts? But just as you are free to express your thoughts about what is posted here, so am I, and so are other posters.

All skaters have fans and detractors. And both get to express their likes and dislikes, here.
