Adam Lambert and Johnny Weir: Can’t a publicist make this happen?

January 16, 2010

I have long said that Adam Lambert should be open to the possibility of dating my most favorite glittery gay, figure skater Johnny Weir. They share a love of all that is glittery and gay, like fierce eye makeup, Dior and Lady Gaga. Don’t you remember Weir’s Poker Face routine?

I mean, if Johnny was a pairs skater, he would already have set the bar for artistic crotch grabbing.

And Johnny is gonna be a reality TV star now, too! On the Sundance Channel, which is kind of high-brow, of course, I could still see him doing Dancing With The Stars at some point because for 98% of standout Olympic athletes, its kind of the route you have to go in order to stay on the public radar after the conclusion of that last interview with Bob Costas. But I, for one, cannot wait to watch Be Good Johnny Weir, as I’ve been a huge fan of the guy since discovering him during the 2006 Torino Olympics.

Seriously. Johnny Weir is totally Adam Lambert’s type. I know these things. I am a great matchmaker, when I chose to do it…usually its just a feeling you get, and I’m 3-0. And I just have a feeling that Johnny Weir and Adam Lambert could be one of the greatest glittery gay couples of all time!  Trannies everywhere would like up to pee on them!

Please oh please oh please. Can someone make this happen? A publicist or something? I mean, imagine how much fun it would be for the two of them to eat Thanksgiving at Kathy Griffin’s house. Imagine all the shopping trips. Greatest glittery gay couple of all time, dammit!

Of course, if Weir makes the U.S. Men’s Figure Skating Team this weekend and does well in Vancouver, he will get anything he wants for awhile! Like a date with Adam Lambert! Come on! It could so happen. It NEEDS to happen.

    Connects: Adam likes a young, cute, creative, and confident type. Check. Johnny likes an interesting, sophisticated, honest type. Check. Both LOVE fashion and costumes; Johnny wants to become a designer. Both are whip-smart and fascinated by other cultures. Both are workaholics. Neither is hung up on religion. Both have very close and supportive families. Both are as impossibly cute. Both have overcome struggles against great odds. Both came from the Middle Class and know how to pay their rent. Both are discreet about past lovers. Both are extremely nurturing. Both are generous. Both are well loved by fans. Johnny eats very healthy; Adam has tried very hard lately.

    Not sure how this plays out: Both are control freaks about performances and their environment. Both thrive on attention. Both love to shop but have not had much money in the past. Johnny has a fine singing voice, though is not as in tune (can benefit from and is interested in voice lessons). Adam says his celeb crush is Bill Kaulitz (but relationships are harder if you don’t speak the language). Johnny feels a big draw toward Russia, S. Korea, and Japan.

    Disconnects: Johnny’s base is very East Coast. Adam’s base is very West Coast. Don’t know how Aquarius + Cancer work together. Don’t think Johnny is laid-back (Adam likes laid back). Adam can be fierce. Johnny can be compulsive and outspoken. Adam is staggered by how much impact his words have in public. Johnny decorates in the Russian style; Adam in modern style (if the video is an indication).

    Both have worked with Lady Gaga. She can make it happen, if either of them or she wants to make a meeting happen. Nothing will happen until after the Olympics. I’d love to be fly on the wall when those two meet, if they haven’t already.

      Connects: Both appear in many benefit performances. Both welcome advances. Both have been very down and have come up. Both are open books.

      Not sure how this plays out: In the skating world, there’s Team Lysacek (based in LA and including many in the performing arts) and Team Weir. It’s possible by Adam is already on Team Lysacek because he has LA skating friends.

      Disconnects: Johnny is very self-sufficient, doubts that he’ll have a permanent relationship. BUT Johnny loves kids and wants that eventually. Adam wants to settle down eventually, but is not sure if he wants kids. Johnny has Mafia neighbor connections. Johnny comes across as more brash and arrogant, but in a catty self-defensive way rather than an evil and manipulative way.

      Post Addendum:
      Johnny has recently twittered: Just found out that a karaoke video of me is on NBC Olympics website. Mortified. I cannot sing, and I will never claim to have talent. 🙂

      But Johnny sure can dance. He put together his first Poker Face performance in two days.

      Neither has a serious significant other right now. Both are open to dating.

      If they get together, it would be like Brangelina, but for the gay world. But one must hope that such a pairing would last longer than Brangelina’s did. Their relationship would be potential fodder for Tabloids but that would be a step forward, sort of, if one can call it (equal treatment by the media) that.

      Connects: Both have souls much older than their years. Both have been driven to distraction by close friends who were involved with addictions. Both enjoy fine dining, sushi and other oriental food, and steaks. Both have expensive tastes. Both have huge collections of sunglasses, black clothing, and leather. Both love kids and are excellent with kids. Both have active minds and opinions on everything. Both are devoted to and accommodating of their fans and kind to photographers. Both have had to draw the line with overzealous fans and have dealt with creepy stalkers. Both have many connections and are making more by the minute. Both are human lightning rods for controversy just by being themselves.

      Both adore Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Amy Winehouse, Goldfrapp (!), Weeds, Velvet Goldmine. Downright macho tenacity to perform despite illness and pain. Both use MAC cosmetics, enjoy manicures and pedicures, wear glittery things, enjoy Roberto Cavalli, Dior Homme. Johnny is fascinated by Jewish history and has studied the Kaballah. Both have straight younger brothers. Both have fathers who LOVE football and watch football.

      Don’t know how this plays out: Lady Gaga is a gay man trapped inside a woman’s body. Lady Gaga’s mother is a big fan of ice skating.

      Disconnects: I ain’t sayin’ any more. These two can be good buds, if not lovers. Somebody needs to make this happen.

      P.S. I need to take a vacation from all of this. I know too much about none of my business. Somebody else run with this.

      Adam once told an interviewer that “my dreidel spins the other way.” Johnny Weir makes all his triple jumps in a clockwise rotation, which is the direction that just 15% of figure skaters use. One cannot make these things up.

      Adam’s parents note that as a child, when playing on a sports team, Adam would easily lose interest and wander off chasing a bug.

      Johnny relates, “I was playing on a soccer team, running the opposite way, pretending to be a zebra, or something. I’ve always been … like this.”

    Hey TI!

    Michelle Kwan just compared your boy Johnny Weir to Adam Lambert (and Evan Lysacek to Kris Allen)… maybe the Universe is one step closer to bringing them together!!!

    “Think of American Idol—you have Adam Lambert and Kris Allen,” says Michelle Kwan, whose former coach now works with Lysacek. “Weir is Lambert, he’s out there, and Evan is Kris, with a wider appeal.” ~ Michelle Kwan

      What a great comparison lol. I like how the one being compared to Kris still had gay tendencies. That made me happy.

    Just saw the commercial for Johnny’s show the other night. My husband said, “Whoa! Is that Chazz Michael Michaels?”

    The moment I first saw Weir (just this past Sunday, actually), he struck me as a self-absorbed diva. He and Lambert wouldn’t last five minutes, what with each one insisting on being the center of the other one’s orbit. Too much of the same thing all in one place.

    ps. Jakob is way too good for Adam.

    pps. The guy who came in fourth should have beaten Wier.

      I just saw this and got excited.

      If Glamberace and Johnny Weir made beautiful love in the bathroom of a Wienerschnitzel, their creme de la cum loads would mix together and create this opulent nymph you see before you. EXTRAVAGANZAAA!

      Funny thing is, the guy who won, Jeremy Abbott? A couple of days beforehand he was tweeting Live Like We’re Dying lyrics. Kris wins AGAIN!

        Abbott is clearly a homophobe and is OMG! SO JELLUS! of Adam’s Elvis-like rise to the top.

          Yes, Abbott is the same kind of homophobe as Queerty. 🙂

    I agree with Pandora. Love Johnny Weir, but I think he needs somebody who can step back and not compete for the spotlight. I envision Adam with someone like Jakob the dancer on SYTYCD. Nice guy, cute guy, insanely talented, but more likely to take a back seat when it comes to the paparazzi and the red carpets.

      January 18, 2010 1:57 pm

      lol. You mean someone who doesn’t mind taking a backseat when it comes to Paparazzi like POCKET IDOL? xD

        No. I don’t ship Kradam. Too many gay men I know have wasted time crushing on straight boys, and heartbreak that way lies. I just think Adam would be better off with a nice, normal gay bf. A regular guy. He can still be talented or in show biz, just not an OTT fame-stravaganza-type.

      I’m involved in figure skating, and trust me… Johnny Weir is way too self-absorbed to get involved with Adam. He prefers that his significant others be unknowns so that all of the attention falls on him, these days he practically walks around with his own spotlight. In addition, he is such a tard for Russia that he will probably move there after the Olympics.

    OT, I hope TI’s watching the Saints game…her boy Brees is KILLING it, and Reggie Bush is on fire tonight!

    • TopIdol permalink
      January 16, 2010 8:27 pm

      Drew Brees deserves a championship and the same accolades given to Manning, Brady, Warner, et al. He’s been one of the league’s best QBs for years now.

      And yeah…he’s tearing it up. My family is probably pissed since they’ve remained Cardinals (and Warner) fans all these years. But NO vs. Indy will be one of the best Super Bowls EVER!!!

    Is there going to be a spoiler post? Sounds like the top 24 may come out (not THAT way) tonight. Also, Cockhead may NOT be cut, as of yet.

          Joe’s Place actually gets a lot of misinformation. But I guess its still worth checking out during the season, although I’ve heard of people getting viruses from the site.

            Joe’s Place blog or IDF? She posts both places, plus works with Dave at VFTW. I believe the spoilers ended up right for the top 24/36 since season 6. I get all sorts of creepy crawlies on IDF, as well as a headache.

              Seriously. No Script. I’ll pimp it till the end of time. The viruses are in ads, and no script stops most ads, including all the ones with viruses. You just have to “allow” certain sites on occasion, and it still won’t let through the bad ads.

              Johnny Weir’s spins were amazing, and I love the styling and choreography, but I’d have liked to see more power in his axel and salchow. He also looked a bit slow out there.

              Okay, I was into figure skating when I was a kid. It’s been a while since I paid much attention to it, but I’ve seen Weir, and I know he’s a good skater.

              Still not sure why you’d want to foist someone as temperamental as Adam on him. Is Johnny the same?

    Adam recorded this for one of Nicholas LaRoche’s skating programs.

    I don’t even like figure skating but that Poker Face routine was amazing!
