So he's got half of the pop star thing down. Now he just needs a single.

Well look out because this summer Johnny is planning on embarking on a pop music career when he launches the single "Dirty Love." "I'm going to record a song in May, just for fun," the aspring pop star told People. "I know I'm not a legitimate, real singer, but I can still rock it like Britney."

While we're not sure how Britney Spears would take that statement, Johnny is serious about getting into the music game.

"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," he said. "My main goal is to perform it at the [MTV] VMAs. I want to come out on a little circle of ice from underneath the stage or something crazy like that!"

A bit of advice, Johnny. See if you can get Lady Gaga to do an ice duet with you. You two were made for each other.
