    Johnny's stylist is channeling Mondo Guerra and Christian Sorreano. :D

    :fragile: Bring back the old website. It was much better.

    Kind of weird site. The old one had so much more content and looked more professional.

    I think this one looks more up to date and it's super easy to navigate but the old one did seem to have more content in some areas. The graphics in the front are super. And we have a book cover now! I do like his schedule being current. I didn't know he was going to be a presenter at the AMAs! Very cool indeed. Can't wait to see his outfit for that one! The possibilities are endless. lol

    Yeah, the new site is fresh and up-to-date, signalling Johnny moving forward beyond the world of just fs. As time passes, websites tend to be redesigned. Sort of like redesigning a room. Nothing ever stays the same.

    I really preferred the old site. More information, more cohesive, a better design.

    ITA! The new site looks ugly and dead. The gray looks like smog. There is little warmth or bit of personality of Johnny in the new site. I hope he didn't actually pay for this new site design. :eek:

    Me too! I know he hates his curls but I love them. I guess everybody is like that. The grass is always greener syndrome.

    I find it amazing that the people who don't like it are the same people who don't like anything he's done since '06. lol I do agree though that it seems like he has less personal input. I used to love his journal entries, but the old site was not being kept current. I guess Twitter and Facebook have taken it's place so really we get a day to day journal of sorts so it's all good.

    A person from Figure Skaters Online has said that they do websites for the skaters for free.
