Fab Five member Gabby Douglas won the gold medal in the women’s gymnastics all-around competition. While the Russian competitors were the front-runners, Douglas scored the win and nabbed one of the most sought-after prizes in the gymnastics rounds! Congrats, Gabby!

Her big win lead to a torrent of tweets from major pop stars, like Lil Wayne who referred to her as an “icon.” The Boss Rick Ross dropped a simple congrats, but it was effective and got the point across.

Nicki Minaj was bummed that Gabby didn’t reply to her congratulatory tweet when she did to Weezy’s! How cute is it that pop icons are fighting over Olympians? #MadUSAPride. However, we think that Nicki should realize this about Gabby and not about her!

Beyonce also posted a congrats on her website, telling Douglas to enjoy the moment since it’s hers. You can check out the incredibly personal and heartfelt post here.

Below are tweets from pop stars expressing love and pride over Gabby’s win.
