WCT: You talk about Christina Aguilera in the book and what a fan you are. Have you met her?
Johnny Weir: I got to meet Christina when I went to the MTV Movie Awards this past spring. I started walking the red carpet and there was a big commotion. I sent my manager over to grab her and tell her that I wanted to meet her. That is how things work in Hollywood circles, which I am still not accustomed to.For the entire interview CLICK HERE.
She came over and she had seen me skate. I have always respected her for never caving in to what the public wanted to see from her. She was always so powerful and used her talent as opposed to other things to become famous. She relied on her voice to sell albums. I always respected that and tried to bring that philosophy to my world. I try to take no prisoners and be who I am. You always have a fear when you meet famous people that they will be a douchebag or your image will crumble. All of my heroes—Lady Gaga, Elton John and Christina Aguilera—have been so beyond amazing.
