Here’s a look at some Twitter love shared between Lady Gaga, Lil Wayne, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, P!nk and their favorite Olympians.

Gymnast McKayla Maroney responded to Lady Gaga, asking her about her gymnast past. Then Gaga’s fan freakout began.

Turns out the Biebz was also rooting for the U.S. gymnastics team.

But, he showed some support for his native land.
