The out athlete spilt the T when he stopped by The Ellen Show.
Earlier this month, Adam Rippon made headlines when he revealed that Harry Styles is his celebrity crush.
The Olympian admitted that he didn’t understand the hype around his heartthrob status at first, but has now come to realise the appeal over the past year.
“So I didn’t realise that he was cute until One Direction broke up,” he told Us Weekly. “But now that Harry Styles is, you know, living that solo singer career, yeah, I’m into it.”
In a new interview, Adam spilt the T and revealed his preference for a different pop hunk.
When asked about his celebrity crushes, he told Ellen: “I used to have a really big crush on Harry Styles… Here’s the thing – I was sleeping on Shawn Mendes.”
Ellen hilariously replied, “I’m sorry?” to which Adam clarified, “Not literally! But I didn’t realise how cute he [Shawn] was.”
“So now Shawn Mendes has taken over from Harry Styles?”, questioned Ellen.
Adam responded, “I know Harry will be upset… I know, love is a funny thing,” which was met with laughter from the host and audience.
The 28-year-old figure skater become one of the breakout stars of the Winter Olympics, after he became the first openly gay man from the US to qualify for the competition, ultimately earning a bronze medal in the men’s individual.
He also made headlines earlier this year when he said he’d refuse a meeting with US Vice President Mike Pence because of his anti-LGBTQ record.
“You mean Mike Pence, the same Mike Pence that funded gay conversion therapy? I’m not buying it,” Rippon said to USA Today.
“If it were before my event, I would absolutely not go out of my way to meet somebody who I felt has gone out of their way to not only show that they aren’t a friend of a gay person but that they think that they’re sick.
“I wouldn’t go out of my way to meet somebody like that.”
Adam added: “I don’t think he has a real concept of reality. To stand by some of the things that Donald Trump has said and for Mike Pence to say he’s a devout Christian man is completely contradictory.
“If he’s okay with what’s being said about people and Americans and foreigners and about different countries that are being called ‘shitholes,’ I think he should really go to church.
