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 “Everyone has a gold medal, everyone, but not me. I hate skating I hate it I hate this sport I will never skate again. Never. It’s impossible. That’s now how it should be.”
She later told the press that after her routine she “wanted to cry, so I cried. I’ve been three weeks alone without my mom, my dogs. So I cry.”
