VMAs: Laurie Hernandez takes selfie with Kanye West
Olympians want selfies with celebs just like everyone else.
After the Final Five gymnastics team presented Beyoncé with a Moonman for Female Video of the Year at the VMAs, Laurie Hernandez, Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, and Madison Kocian returned to their seats, but made a quick pit stop on the way.
Hernandez, who won an individual silver medal on the balance beam in Rio this month, and Raisman, who nabbed a silver medal on the floor routine, said hello to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, and Hernandez used the moment to snap a selfie.
She smiled wide, reminding fans why she’s nicknamed the “Human Emoji,” while West stood next to her, keeping his cool in the presence of greatness.
The rest of the team then posed for a selfie with Kardashian, making Biles’ dreams of meeting the reality star come true.
