2012 U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Win Olympic Gold: Lady Gaga + More Congratulate Team
The 2012 U.S. women’s gymnastics team nabbed the gold at the Olympics, defeating Russia, who took the silver. Go girls! The U.S. women’s gymnasts have not won the gold medal since 1996, so it’s been a while. Perhaps that’s why so many pop stars were quick to issue tweets offering their hearty congratulations to the ladies for their big win!
Lady Gaga tweeted that she just wanted to “squeeze” the winners, who showed solidarity and true team spirit by holding hands. Even a Canadian like Justin Bieber threw ‘em props. He’s pretty much an American at this point, right? Sorry Canada! We just want to share him. Dual citizenship is fine with us if it is with you.
Clearly, we’re all proud of our girls from grabbing the gold! PopCrush sends a digital high-five to the gals, as well.
Below are all the tweets from pop stars celebrating the big win.
Woohoo! Gold for the ladies! just want to squeeze them! So much talent and beauty. Did u seem all holding hands? There’s no “I” in team.
