Talk about a round of applause. Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne are just a handful of the stars who congratulated gymnast Gabby Douglasafter she earned a second gold medal at the London Olympic Games, this time in the women's individual all-around competition. The win was especially momentous for 16-year-old Gabby, who became the first African-American woman to earn the Olympic all-around title.
Beyonce posted a photo of Gabby on her official website, writing, "A huge congratulations to 16 year old Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas - WOW - what a thrill to watch you take this Gold! I can tell you've been working hard for so long - enjoy this moment, its yours. Thank you for inspiring all of us!"
Nicki tweeted, "kisses to Gabby," adding, "what an amazing little firecracker. #USA #Olympics." Her YMCMB pal Lil Wayne was equally impressed by Gabby's performance, tweeting, "Glad i lived to see what Gabby Douglas did in the Olympics. Icon."
Gabby retweeted Weezy's message, writing back, "WOW!!!! Im speechless Thank you SOO MUCH!!" But when Nicki saw that her message had gone unanswered, she joked, "Oh wow, I tweeted about #Gabby earlier but she responds to @LilTunechi and not me? U know what? Ima fight u. I've had it!!!"
That got the attention of Gabby, who replied to Nicki tweeting, "Hahaha I was trying 2find it! I PROMISE! THANK U SO MUCH! OMG IM NUMB RIGHT NOW! #SPEECHLESS"
Gabby also retweeted messages from, among others, Timbaland, The Help star Octavia Spencer and Oprah Winfrey. The media mogul tweeted, "OMG I'm so THRILLED for Gabby. Flowing happy tears!! #TeamUSA."
