See that girl in the picture above? No ladies and gentlemen that’s not Kylie Jenner, but rather 2012 Women’s Olympic gold (and silver) medalist, McKayla Maroney. Yes, the one who, after one misstep on the vault, took her to second place creating 1000’s of memes online for her “McKayla’s Not Impressed” face. Remember her? Yeeeaahhh, she looks WAY different these days!
In a new interview with Seventeen Magazine, McKayla talks about how her love for gymnastics was recently overpowered by her love for music, “You know, I really thought I was going to be (at the Olympic Trials), even six or seven months ago. But I ended up having some different health issues and I didn’t even realize that I was starting to fall out of love with the sport and in love with music. My biggest inspiration is Drake. I love the way that he tells stories.”
And some have noticed that she’s physically changed over the years (which is what happens people! lol), but she claims she had no work done: “At the end of the day, I have changed. I can’t blame anybody for saying, ‘Oh, she changed!’ You know, because I have. And that’s OK. It’s good to keep evolving and growing. I think most people should be accepting with stuff like that, but you know, you can’t force anybody into feeling a certain way. So for anybody who’s judging it and not liking it, that’s fine. Unfollow me. I don’t really care.”
