A New Star (page 33030)

View Comments

There’s a new women’s gymnastics all-around champ and America has a new star: Gabrielle Christina Victoria Douglas. But you can call her Gabby and she made history last night as the first African American to win gold in the all around competition. You know you’ve crossed over and gone legend when Oprah and Michael Phelps are hyping you on Twitter. Think it would be any good to be 16 and glossed an “icon” by Lil Wayne? Gabby has crazy it and unbelievable star power. It’s hard to explain it but you know when you see it. And her rap is every bit as good as her game. “There were so many camera flashes going off I felt like was at a concert. And the crazy thing was, they were all taking pictures of me.” Get used to it, G. See you in Rio.
