Johnny Weir’s Biopic Triple Salchows Into Theatres

Richie Rich might get to take credit for giving Johnny Weir’s documentary Pop Star on Ice its title. ‘Cause shit, that’s what this guy is: a pop star.

The biopic on figure skating’s most famous openly gay performer debuts Sunday at the Seattle International Film Festival before making the indie festival circuit. We’re not sure if we’re more excited for the film, or the title rap track that manages to rhyme the lyrics “I won’t be distracted / I need to go practice / My triple toe loops / ‘Cause oh my do they scare me.” Because that takes talent.
