During an interview on First We Feast’s web series Hot Ones, which sees celebrities answer questions while tackling an array of extra spicy wings, the Olympic figure skater went in-depth about the Jeremy Scott-designed outfit.

“So I love me some Jeremy Scott because I think he’s a genius and he’s crazy and his ideas are bizarre and wild, and I’m crazy, bizarre and wild [too], and some people have called me a genius.

“When Jeremy took the classic tuxedo and he took the shoulders out and we added that harness to it, where it felt like you were kind of strapped into the tuxedo, I just felt really fucking cool.

“When we were first doing it, Jeremy was like, ‘Don’t wear a shirt’, and I was like ‘You’re right, I shouldn’t do that’, and then the whole team around me was like, ‘Adam, you’re gonna wear a shirt’, and I was like, ‘Oh yeah, you’re right, it’s the Oscars’.

“If it were up to me, I would always push it more.”

The 28-year-old figure skater became the first openly gay athlete from Team USA to qualify for the games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, earning a bronze medal in the men’s individual with a stunning performance to Coldplay’s O.

His relationship with fellow out athlete Gus Kensworthy also made headlines when they shared a kiss in defiance of Mike Pence – and the internet went wild.
