Gabby Talks Meeting Beyoncé with TJ Holmes [VIDEO]
Michelle Obama's DNC speech. Beyoncé’s return to world domination post BIC. Kerry Washington's "scandalous" breakthrough. Black women rocked in 2012. And who knew a tiny 16 year old gymnast would have the best year of them all?! Olympian Gabby Douglas had everyone on their feet and cheering as she flipped her way to two gold medals. Since then, the medalist has made media rounds to spread inspiration and promote her latest endeavor: a memoir about her road to London and the setbacks she experienced along the way.
In a recent sit down with TJ Holmes on BET's "Don't Sleep!," Gabby touched on the never-ending criticism about her hair (really America?!) and some lighter topics including meeting Beyoncé: "I’ve been a big fan of her for a long time. I love her dances, I dance to them. I love her personality, I just think she would be so cool to meet. And Jay-Z."
Aside from meeting celebrities, Gabby's first splurge purchase was a Louis Vuitton purse and shoes. She will also explore the acting world with a guest stint on Vampire Diaries.
"It went very well and when I did my little acting scene it was so fun, and I’m so honored that I got to do it. I’ve been bit by the acting bug. I think I might pursue it." She continues, "I really want to play like the Diva and be like “Water!” Like I think that would be so cool! I love to play like different acts like the diva, or the mean girl, the funny girl, I think it would be fun."
