What is a typical day like for you?
“I don’t really sleep that much because I have been under really high-stress since I was young, so why not work…if that is the kind of lifestyle you want, you just have to keep marching forward, or else I would be dead right now.”
What was it like growing up in the Weir house?
“ We did not get anything if we did not work for it growing up.” Johnny shared with us how his childhood shaped the hardworking entertainer he is today. “When your parents are working so hard, it does not seem that out of the ordinary to work hard for something. And lucky for me I knew I wanted to be an ice skater when I was 12.”
What message are you hoping to send with your new book?
“My story is very all-American. I had to work very hard for everything I got and was always very determined to be something big…I have had to work for every watch that I own, every month of rent, every makeup palette I own and I think that is a great story.”
What were your thoughts about shooting your book cover?
“I wanted the cover to be very extravagant and crazy because that is what people think of me.” All you Louboutin fans out there be prepared to be green (or should we say red?!) with envy; not only is Johnny wearing a fab pair of heels on the cover but he’s also commissioned a pair of red soul skates that the shoe maven himself, Christian Louboutin, is designing.
