Found September 07, 2012 on 5TH QUARTER MAGAZINE:

This time last year, Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas was an everyday gymnast and now she’s sharing the stage Alicia Keys and Nicki Minaj at the 2012 MTV VMAs.

Alicia’s performed her new single “Girl is on Fire (Infero)” and I think it’s safe to say that this should be the theme song for Gabby’s life right now.

Right on on cue, when Nicki Minaj rapped:

“Took me on the balcony, telling me to jump with her / Yeah, I’m in the ghost but I ain’t doing stunts with her / I ain’t trying to be that, haters want to see that / But I got ‘em aggy, cause I win the gold like Gabby.”

Douglas strutted past Keys and performing a series of cartwheels, jumps and back hand springs, flashing her million-dollar smile and high-fiving Keys as she left.
