mckayla maroney wants to be the next drake

On Gabby Douglas making the '16 Olympic team
"So some people were like, 'Why did she get picked over girls who didn't fall?' It has to do with the lineup — they need her on the events that she didn't fall on. They need her especially on bars. I get why people would be like, 'Wait, that doesn't make sense! She didn't get first!'"

On her music she's recording
"My biggest inspiration is Drake. I love the way that he tells stories. It has a little bit of a Calypso jam vibe. He's real and always lyrically driven in all the melodies. If there's one person I want to sound like, it's him."

On moving on from gymnastics
"I'd go to Starbucks and people would be like, 'Are you going to the next Olympics?' And when I'd say no, they'd literally look sad. So it was very hard for me to get excited about anything else."

On meeting President Obama
"He came up to me and he was like, 'Being the president, I'm not impressed all the time. Every day, I have something that comes up that just doesn't impress me.' And he was like, 'Can I do the face with you?'"

-Oh and she denies lip injections but who cares

the Russians are excited to hear this madness
