Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir is making a big leap.

The three-time U.S. champion – who recently declared war with fellow skater Evan Lysacek – has been keeping very busy off the ice.

“I’m going to record a song in May, just for fun,” Weir, 25, told PEOPLE at the Ice Theater of New York, where he opened the season on April 29. “I know I’m not a legitimate, real singer, but I can still rock it like Britney.”

The song, called “Dirty Love,” came about when a producer approached him after the Olympics, and Weir’s got big dreams for it.
