Former Olympic gold medalist McKayla Maroney is all grown-up now and ready to take on those internet again.
“I’ll be very honest, I have not done anything to my face,” admitted Maroney. “But it’s like these are rumors that are going to come up for the rest of my life and I can’t keep responding to them. People are always going to have opinions and it’s just better to move on and keep doing you.”
“Basically, I’m wearing lip liner,” she said, also adding that she no longer pays attention to haters. “I don’t read comments. People on social media are definitely mean and they’ll say some stuff that will catch you off-guard. The best thing is to just know that you are good enough … and you really don’t need to fit in. Fitting in is overrated. It’s so amazing to be different and special and the most important thing is to feel good about who you are.”
She’s now focusing on her second passion, music. Her new single, “Ghost,” will be released on September 8.
“Music for me is something that’s healing and [makes me] feel so happy,” she explained. “I think people [will] see that and they’re going to hear that in my music.”
“I’ve loved music since I was like 8 years old. I would write songs,” she added. “It was really hard to accept that gymnastics [had] come to an end … that was my identity you know.”
