“When I skate my best performances, all of my feelings and emotions come from my soul. Figure skating is my outlet, my art, my painting, my fashion design. It’s how I speak, and I speak from my soul. When I’m off the ice, I think I act more from my “heart”.
“Soul” and “heart” are two different things for me. The soul is something that is inside you when you are born, and the last thing you feel when you die. But your heart is what makes you “yourself”. It’s what gives you a face; it’s what gives you color. It’s what gives you vibrancy. For me, on the ice, it’s “soul.” Off the ice, it’s “heart.””—ほぼ日刊イトイ新聞-Johnny Weir!!! オフィスにジョニーがやってきた。 Johnny Comes to Our Office.
