The Stooges 'I Wanna Be Your Dog' cover played at Olympics
The Stooges 'I Wanna Be Your Dog' cover played over Alexandra Trusova's figure skating event. It's not really a song you'd expect to play for figure skating. Not only was the song a surprise but also Alexandra's reaction to only getting silver. Surely skating to a Stooges song deserves gold.
The cover played was by English actor John McCrea, the song was recorded for the film Cruella. According to Reuters an upset Alexandra said â€œEveryone has a gold medal, everyone, but not me. I hate skating I hate it I hate this sport I will never skate again. Never. Itâ€™s impossible. Thatâ€™s now how it should be.â€
She later told the press that after her routine she â€œwanted to cry, so I cried. Iâ€™ve been three weeks alone without my mom, my dogs. So I cry.â€
