Skater Johnny Weir's 'Main Goal'? Perform at the VMAs!

Figure skater Johnny Weir may have captured the nation's attention with his flashy performances at 2010's Winter Olympics, but it seems the world sports stage wasn't large enough. According to People, Weir, 25 -- currently penning a book and having a war of words with fellow skater Evan Lysacek (who scored a perfect 30 on last night's Dancing with the Stars!) -- now has his sights set on becoming a singer and someday performing at MTV's Video Music Awards.

"I'm going to record a song in May, just for fun," Weir told the magazine about the upcoming single "Dirty Love." He added, "I've been working a lot on my voice, if I only do one song in my life, I want it to be a huge success." 

A huge success on par with the likes of, say, Britney Spears? As Weir put it, "I know I'm not a legitimate, real singer, but I can still rock it like Britney." 

Weir's ambitions don't stop there. "My main goal is to perform it at the VMAs," he said. "I want to come out on a little circle of ice from underneath the stage or something crazy like that!"

Weir also wanted to put critics in their place. "People talk about how trashy it is to use 15 minutes of fame, but I'm trying to pursue all of this in a professional way and do the best I can, I don' t care if I fail," he said. "I just have fun trying to do these things."
