Australian Olympic Diver Matthew Mitcham Covers Dolly Parton’s ‘Dumb Blonde': VIDEO

  Matthew mitcham covers dolly parton's dumb blonde

Procrastinating before his end-of-semester exams, Australian 2008 Olympic champion diver Matthew Mitcham performs Dolly Parton’s "Dumb Blonde" with his ukelele.

We’ve previously featured Mitcham performing "Single Ladies" on his YouTube channel.

Mitcham gained media coverage in 2008 because reporters thought he was the first openly gay Australian to compete at the Olympic Games, an honor which was actually taken by diver Mathew Helm who won the silver medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics in the men's 10m platform.

    Perry: it must be terrible to feel such urge to post something stupid in every article.

    Matthew is adorable. One of the very few gold medals won by an openly gay athlete

    He is a knockout. His enunciation and expressive lips
    were a talent all to themselves, a great song honored by a fine voice as well. Dolly should send him flowers.

  5. UFFDA says

    What I meant to say is, he’s an embarrassment for believing a culture of effeminacy and women who are evil. Blah Blah. I am a troll with a saggy floppity sack with no balls in it.

  6. I wont grow up says

    This kid is amazing, could we ask for a better example a gay young man to represent who we truly are.

  7. says

    Yep. Who could ask for a better person to represent gay men than someone who was doing meth leading up to the Olympics. Nothing says how to be a proud gay man by doing meth while competing for an Olympic gold medal.

    And Perry shows us that the closet makes you hateful, petty, and jealous.
