Johnny Weir: 'Welcome To My World' Release Party!

Johnny Weir is all smiles at his book release party sponsored by Barefoot Bubbly at 230 Fifth on Tuesday (January 11) in New York City.

The 26-year-old figure skater proudly showed off his new book Welcome to My World and is also celebrating the release of his new single, Dirty Love.

In the book, Johnny reveals he’s gay and discusses why he didn’t come out earlier.

“There was a lot in the book that I had to take out…because of people that would sue me and stuff like that,” he told NBC. “If I have the opportunity to write a second book, there will be completely new stories that nobody’s heard yet. There’s lots of dirt that I wanted to tell that I wasn’t able to because I’m still too close to the skating world.”

    He is a girl
    So much hating for Bethenny was unfair and jealous.
    Just sayin
    Brilliantly talented skater

  • boston61

    He is NOT a normal gay man. He is a transexual like Adam Lambert. They are girls trapped in boy bodies. Stop slandering other gay MEN by labeling this creep gay.

  • mary

    at first look… I thought it was a girl…. sorry..

  • freaks of nature

    he doesn’t even have to push when he takes a shiit

  • rose

    I hated seeing him on Skating with the stars. He gave me the willys. I did see him skate in the Olympics and thought he was great. I agree that he is a transexual more than he is gay. I have known some gay people and they don’t act like this guy. If he didn’t dress like a girl I think I could take him more seriously.

  • Linda

    OMG.. Johnny. I understand his background, he trained very hard for his figure skating career but right now, he is trying too hard to be rich and famous. Too hard.


    I never knew Johnny Weir(d) was gay until he came out in his book. DUH!!

  • SarahNL

    wow.. didn’t he just came out.. didn’t know he meant as.. a woman? too much makeup !! he knows how to strike a pose though. :P

  • dragon girl

    I can’t shake the feeling that he looks like a brunette Kate Hudson.

  • joey

    the only thing worse than that hideous get up is his nasty personality…

  • Sea Shell

    He is a great skater. I`m from Russia, but love him much more than Plushenko. Gay or not gay -who cares if he is so talented. Sorry for my english:)

  • jayjay

    OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG…… do we have to live through another reincarnation of Boy George and his ilk. This is so redundant I am thinking of maybe taking my life back. Johnny butch it up a little and keep skating….. it’s your best attribute. Fire whoever did your make up. JayJay

  • B

    Don’t like him. And also, pretty sure he didn’t have to “come out” everyone already knew. I mean come on.

  • Di

    He’s gay, wow my whole world had just been turned upside down
