How did this come about?

In a recent interview with Elite Daily, Gus said before he hits the slopes, he gets fired up to “Gimme More.” What kind of flawlessness?

“During the season I will have a song that I’ll kind of be listening to during competitions or the warm-up, and if I end up doing well at that event, then that will be my song for the season,” he said.

“And this season, my first win was at our selection event, I was playing ‘Gimme More’ by Britney Spears. So, I have listened to that Britney Spears song at every competition round since, and I haven’t gotten sick of it yet. So that’s my competition song.”

Britney heard about Gus’ standom and wished him luck before his next event. And it appears the Olympics are inspiring Queen B. Not only is Brit gushing over the Olympics, but she’s showing off some high-flying twirls and leaps.

“So proud of #TeamUSA!! Hey @guskenworthy, gimme, gimme more on the slopes today!!,” she said, and included the hashtag #ItsGusBitch. I have never been more proud of my Queen.

And for fun, here’s a photo of Gus attending Piece Of Me not too long ago. The gays know what’s up, and clearly… so does Britney!

  1. Do you really need to write “openly-gay” every time you refer to him? He’s just a human being and a stan like most of us. No need to label him to separate him from the rest of the team or fans.

    1. Until mentioning “openly gay” no longer elicits a response like yours, it is necessary. When we’ve finally reached a point where nobody pays attention, it will no longer be worth mentioning.
