Aaaahh! Omg! Thank you so much for putting this together and uploading it! I've been wishing I could find this program music ever since Vancouver! It occurred to me recently that perhaps I could go through Johnny's agent Tara Modlin directly and ask her if there's a way I could get a copy of the "Fallen Angel" compilation, but now you're here, and this is much simpler. :-) Thank you!

That was beautiful. _ And can we talk about the brilliance of that opening 'walking on air' movement? So awesome, in the true sense of the word.

Reading the comments that there's apparently a Johnny-inspired Thorki skating AU has me so incredibly chuffed right now. :D haha. Also, I can't believe it's been four years since Johnny performed "Fallen Angel" at the 2010 Olympics. It feels so much more recent. I feel old now, lol. I so would've loved to see him compete one last time, in his beloved Russia too, for the Sochi Olympics. I'm pissed that Putin had to go and ruin it for him. At least he's going to be an NBC commentator. I can't wait for that!

I didn't know he retired because of Putin? I thought he said it doesn't matter, because athletes work so hard for olympics, politics shouldn't put them down. If he retired because of gay right thingy, he wouldn't be going in Russia at all.

To everyone who is calling this video "grotesque" and "gross" and "creepy," I personally find it better than "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball." I agree that Miley's face would've looked more distinctly 'feminine' in this video if she had worn a bit of eyeliner or something, but she was clearly going for a 'stripped down,' organic look. I thought the sheets were visually interesting and I like how they were used for the video. (I wonder how many takes each shot took because a sheet wasn't flowing quite right/came between Miley and the camera.) It's one thing to criticize this video if you are against blatant sexual expression in media as a whole. I can understand that. But I think it's really lame that people are criticizing this video because Miley doesn't fit their culturally constructed idea of what a "beautiful" or "attractive" "woman" should look like. I'm sick of the idea that there's only one way for a woman to be beautiful. I admit she looked very young in some of the shots, particularly the colorless ones, but the reality is, she IS a legal adult and can express her sexuality however she pleases as long as it's not hurting anyone else. None of you have to watch this video. I feel like there's a double-standard at play here where we're only okay with a woman openly expressing her sexuality if it's for the benefit of the male gaze or allows us to objectify her. If someone doesn't find Miley attractive or "womanly" enough, it means that her actions in this video are only benefitting her and not the viewer, and a lot of (heteronormative) men seem to have an issue with or feel threatened by a woman who takes ownership of her identity as a sexual being. Women are supposed to be demure and passive, not in-your-face and active. I don't even think this was that in-your-face. It was more tasteful than most other videos out there that sexualize the female form. It strongly suggests masturbation, but that also seems like something that is only an issue because we as a culture allow it to be. If you're against masturbation for religious reasons, why are you even here? Otherwise, I get the impression that female masturbation isn't as culturally accepted as male masturbation because we live in a society where men are considered the sexual instigators and we think of women relying on them for sexual pleasure. If a woman can please herself, she doesn't need a man, which is also a threatening idea to the psyches of heteronormative men. The fact that Miley seems a bit androgynous with her short hair and lack of makeup, combined with her feminine figure (I consider it feminine despite what others might say), also surely makes some people uncomfortable—those people who believe in the gender binary and don't like people who fall into a partial state of "otherness." Now, I'm not saying all these ideas I've mentioned are accurate or apply to everyone, but I'm just throwing them out as food for thought based on what I've learned about feminist philosophy over the past several years. I'm not really bothered by this video, so I just find it interesting that other people are.

Thanks for your refreshing comment, but I think you're missing the point. Only idiots in lack of arguments use agressivity, physical-related insults, so don't mind those.
What's bothering me with Miley, is that she's playing a character, and I don't think she's thinking twice about it - It's all good to want to "express herself", and "explore her sexuality", and other artists did it before her, but let's face it, coming from a "Disney world",she carries a certain responsibility, even if she didn't ask for it, she HAS to deal with it. She has millions of YOUNG fans, they look up to her, and she's explaining that she does what she does because "she grew up". Hearing that, what do you think it does to young girls? That it's the way everyone is supposed to grow up? Miley is just in that teenage phase, hormonal, rebellious. People who look up to her think that it's ok to smoke weed, for example, that "it's part of growing up". Sure, smoking weed is not the worst thing you'll ever do as a teenager, but we all know that this kind of image in media amplifies ten thousand fold in reality, and her suggesting a lot of sexual acts is not appropriate. Don't get me wrong, I have absolutely no problem with sex, or female masturbation, (i'm a female btw), I see no problem in exploring that part of us that is natural, but it should be private, and like all media, she's conveying the idea that it's not. Maybe i'm old fashioned but I like to think that whatever concerns your sexuality, concerns YOU only, not the whole world. So really, the problem in that video has nothing to do with the fact that "masturbation is bad!", or that her touching, in and of itself, is shocking.
If that was relevant to her songs....sure. But her suggesting oral sex over a metal hammer, touching herself under some sheets while singing a love ballad, I don't see how this is illustrating a song, and a video clip is supposed to do just that. You can make any excuses you want for her, Miley is doing what she's doing because she's loving the attention it got her the first time, she doesn't want it to stop cause we keep talking about her, and the sad part is that she's making money over haters of her attitude, and it's not about her musical talent anymore, it's about her character.
She is a fraud, like many artists out there, yes, but she still is. We keep criticizing the next generation, but THIS is what is educating them. Miley is now a part of the media that just brainwashes everyone into thinking that sex is a public matter. It's NOT and it shouldn't be, we have to keep some kind of privacy for this stuff. For me, she came from being a teenage idol, known for her acting/vocals talent, to the "other side" of this industry, where anything is good to have a semblance of reputation good or bad, (the worse the better), and to make loads of money.  Since she needs the haters, it's clearly not about her talent anymore, But she knows it's getting her a lot of hate, and because it's also giving her attention and money, she's loving it. Sex sells, and that's it. It's what she's doing, we just cannot deny that. This is what we see, so if she's actually trying to give an image of an independant woman who is capable of satisfying herself, and who is setting her own definition of "beauty", we cannot see it, because people see what it's in front of them. And she KNOWS that, she doesn't expect people to find some secret meaning.  I'm sorry, but this is it, media nowadays don't think about consequences, and about how it can affect people, just about the money they can make. It's ALL about the money,I know, it's a sad reality, but it's just the way it is. If she really did want to try to send a message, seeing all that hate, she would just quit doing it, or at least find another way, because clearly it's not working. But I said "if", and I'm convinced it's not what she's trying to do, so. Hope you get my point.

This sounds pretty cool. I wonder if it can be applied to passenger flights one day. That would definitely take a LOT more energy.

Sure, Lulu may not be the best pole dancer in the world, and yes, she is a larger woman, but I like her. She has an infectious spirit and I admire her confidence. :)

I love everything about this! His costume, his makeup, his moves, the 'Johnny Weir Slide'! His personality, and of course, his single. :D How can anyone not love him?

These two are so adorable together. :) Victor is precious. I love the contrast between his quiet conservatism and Johnny's more in-your-face flashiness, haha.

They are handsome men, but would be better suited with females to compliment them. It's sad. They've been robbed.

I love his sexy-fierce face throughout the performance, and then how once it's over he goes back to his adorable, smiley version of himself. :) hehe. Oh, Johnny. ily. <3

The lyrics to this aren't Shakespeare or anything, but they're cute. So many songs talk about love, it's nice to hear one that acknowledges that people don't generally fall in love at first sight. At least, I don't believe in "love" at first sight. You have to know someone first. Rebecca has gotten a lot better since the whole "Friday" fiasco and I think she might actually go somewhere. Her videos and songs are fun and youthful, which is refreshing in a pop music industry built on sex and drug references.

Well, either sex and drugs, or being part of the Disney/Nickelodeon profit machine.
