Openly Gay Olympian Gus Kenworthy Dishes About Feeling "Crazy Guilty" After Making Out With Miley Cyrus!

Gus Kenworthy was conflicted AF after making out with Miley Cyrus. The openly gay Olympian admitted this during his Tuesday appearance on the Allegedly podcast. Apparently, the freestyle skier's encounter with Miz Cyrus started with a comment the athlete made during a panel while at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Related: OUT Magazine's Power 50 List! [...] Gus Kenworthy was conflicted AF after making out with Miley Cyrus. The openly gay Olympian admitted this during his Tuesday appearance on the Allegedly podcast. Apparently, the freestyle skier's encounter with Miz Cyrus started with a comment the athlete made during a panel while at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Related: OUT Magazine's Power 50 List! When asked which A-lister he'd like to get with, Kenworthy wasn't sure what to say as Russia has several anti-LGBT policies in place. The 25-year-old explained: "I was sitting there like, ‘Do I say Zac Efron or Jake Gyllenhaal and play it off like I'm joking?' I didn't know what to do and so I was like, 'Um … Miley Cyrus.'" Somehow Gus' comment got back to the Malibu singer, who reached out to the silver medalist via Twitter. Kenworthy continued: "Miley tweets me back and follows me and starts messaging me and I'm like, 'Oh, my God, this is fucking crazy. We're friends and she's a gay icon.'" LOLz. The then single Miley went on to invite Gus and his pals to her 2014 Bangerz Tour stop in Denver, Colorado. The concert was more than just a meet and greet as Cyrus and the celebrated skier took their friendship to another level. The Brit dished: "[My friends and I] all went to the show and then partied with her afterwards and it was really cool. We never slept together. I had the opportunity, but we had a makeout. It was great! She's really, really sweet and I've hung out with her a few times since. She's back with Liam [Hemsworth]— she wasn't at that time — and I got to meet him a couple of times and they're great." While Gus "enjoyed" his encounter with Miley, something just didn't feel right about the situation. Remember, the British competitor didn't come out until 2015. Gus added: "I had fun, but I also felt like really crazy guilty afterwards. And I wasn't sure if it was because I was maybe doing something that was like, ‘Does everybody feel guilty after doing this? Or is it because I'm gay and really hiding it?' But I was able to do it and enjoyed it kind of. And I also felt like it was what I was supposed to be doing." Talk about a crisis of confidence! Nonetheless, these days, Gus couldn't be more confidant in his sexuality as he's currently enjoying a "kind of" open relationship with Matthew Wilkas. In regards to his relationship status, the athletic cutie noted: "We're [interested in exploring] other people. If there's an opportunity we're both open for that and we're very communicative about it. He's really easy to get along with. He's like the sweetest guy, honestly. He's super funny. It's long-distance so it poses challenges, but we make it work." Cool, so where do we send our digits?? KIDDING! Be sure to ch-ch-check out Gus' full interview for yourself (below)!

The 26-year-old skier took to Twitter on Thursday (February 15) to reveal he broke his thumb at practice, and shared that because of it he won’t have to shake Vice President Mike Pence‘s hand because of it. “Broke my thumb yesterday in practice. It won’t stop me from competing (obvi) but it does prevent me from shaking Pence’s hand so… Silver linings! Will be giving my teammates (and literally everyone else) an enthusiastic “thumbs up!” of encouragement the rest of the trip,” Gus tweeted along with an X-ray of his thumb. Gus – who came out as gay in 2015 – and figure skater Adam Rippon are two of the only openly gay athletes competing for Team USA at the Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Gus and Adam have been extremely vocal in their criticism of Pence being selected to lead the United States’ delegation in South Korea despite his strong anti-LGBTQ views. Gus will compete in the slopestyle competition on Sunday, February 18. Broke my thumb yesterday in practice.

Jean-Claude Van Damme & Green Power Ranger Jason David Frank Almost Got Into A Fight At Comic-Con — Get The Crazy Story!

A brawl from the stuff of Comic-Con fan-fiction nearly became a reality when Jean-Claude Van Damme *almost* threw down with Green Power Ranger Jason David Frank over the weekend! For those who don't know, the two stars have had an ongoing beef since Van Damme and Frank exchanged nasty words at the 1995 premiere of Mighty [...] A brawl from the stuff of Comic-Con fan-fiction nearly became a reality when Jean-Claude Van Damme *almost* threw down with Green Power Ranger Jason David Frank over the weekend! For those who don't know, the two stars have had an ongoing beef since Van Damme and Frank exchanged nasty words at the 1995 premiere of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. Yes, this feud goes way back. Frank publically challenged Van Damme to a fight in 2010, but the Bloodsport star never responded... until La Mole Comic-Con on Saturday! Frank was asked to share his green room with the Belgian action star and his 20-person entourage at the Mexico City convention. Frank agreed, despite their turbulent past, but soon learned Van Damme was still holding a grudge. Related: Male Models Got Into A Huge Brawl In NYC! After signing autographs at the event, Frank went back to his green room to find that Van Damme's security staff was blocking off anyone from entering -- including the person the room was arranged for in the first place. Rather than make a stink about it, Frank secured a different room from an event promoter and got some food and rest while waiting for Van Damme to leave his room. As the MMA fighter was speaking with the promoter about a future engagement, a member of Van Damme's entourage told him that the action star insisted they take a photo together before leaving. After Van Damme's crew came out with a bunch of cameras, Frank knew it was "all a setup" -- and he was right, because that's when Van Damme confronted him demanding an apology! Speaking to FloCombat, the Green Ranger remembered: "All of his crew comes out and everybody has their cameras out and he has this professional camera, I'm not sure if he's shooting a reality show or what, but all the cameras are on and he comes out of the room and straight up to me and he goes, 'Hey you like writing articles about people, you want to beat my ass? You gonna apologize for that?' And I said nope. He goes, 'You think you can still beat my ass?' and I said yeah." With the cameras rolling, Van Damme said if Frank wanted a fight, "let's throw down." But apparently, the 57-year-old was all talk! After the two stars squared up against each other, both agreeing to an MMA-style brawl, Frank grabbed Van Damme and put him in a headlock against the wall. Video: Harry Styles' Kiwi Video Is Full Of Food Fights & Puppies! Van Damme froze up, however, seemingly taken back that Frank was actually ready to fight at Comic-Con. Frank explained: "I clinched him up and pushed him back, not in a violent way, in a respectful way that if you want to do this, let's do this. The whole time everybody is filming me and no security people are coming but everybody in his entourage is filming. So I clinched up with him and put him against the wall and he's talking and he froze up and I raised my knee and said, 'Do you want to this?' and he doesn't do anything so I let go." It was only after security broke up the fight that Van Damme got cocky once again, Frank continued: "Security came and broke it up and that's when he starts saying, 'Fuck you,' and I told him come on. Why don't you come in the cage or the ring? Why are you doing this at Comic Con?" Maybe JC was just trying to do a bit of live theater for the crowds? Or, more likely, didn't think the former Power Ranger would be down to throw fists in the middle of the convention. Looking back on the encounter, Frank said he's not holding a grudge against his one-time idol. But he's also never going to back down from a fight, especially one that was ambushed on him. Watch the heated moment for yourself (below). Moral of the story: you STILL don't fuck with Tommy! [Image via Guillermo Proano/WENN.].....»»
