Following the U.S. women’s gymnastics team’s stunning performance yesterday, Lady Gaga couldn’t even attempt to contain her excitement at the Fab Five’s gold medal victory:

Her tweets of praise caught the attention of new gymnastics gold medalist and Gaga superfan McKayla Maroney:

The admiration was mutual:


We’re not sure if we agree that Gaga has a shot at making the gymnastics team. After all, latex bodysuits aren’t terribly conducive to flexibility and agility. But her and Maroney’s respect for each other’s talents and giddy back-and-forth have left us feeling quite charmed.
