Last night, with the eyes of the whole world upon them, the U.S. women’s gymnastics team – Aly Raisman, 18, Jordyn Wieber, 17, Gabby Douglas, 16, Kyla Ross, 15, and McKayla Maroney, 16 won the first all-around gold medal for the U.S. since the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.
So obviously they had just ONE thing on their minds… Justin Bieber!
Gold medalist Jordyn Wieber took to her Twitter after the medal ceremony to reach out to her favorite pop star:
Now that we are Olympic champions, can we please meet Justin Bieber?
In true Justin Bieber fashion, the 18-year-old Tweeted right back saying,
You support me, I support you. Congrats. And Ryan Seacrest told me about you, too. Dream big.
Wait. Dream big? You mean like – gold medal at the Olympics big? We think she’s already got a handle on that one, J-dawg.
Mother Monster Lady Gaga also reached out to the “Fab Five” via the Twitterverse with a heartfelt congratulatory message.
Woohoo! Gold for the ladies! Just want to squeeze them! So much talent and beauty. Did you seem all holding hands? There’s no ‘I’ in team.
Other celebs who also sent their congrats to the five teens via Twitter included TV host Oprah Winfrey, 58, Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough, 27, That’s My Boy actress Ciara, 26, vocalist Josh Groban, 31, singer/songwriter Michelle Branch, 29, and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump, 50.
That’s it??? We feel like winning gold deserves a shout out from at least one member of One Direction! Oh wait… never mind.
