Ah, the face seen ‘round the world! While standing on the podium to receive her silver medal for the vault event, Maroney made this now-legendary unimpressed face. Naturally, the internet had a field day.
Fast forward four years, and this is what McKayla Maroney looks like now (right). She's admitted that after spending most of her life training for the Olympics, she now likes spending time on her hair and makeup.
McKayla Maroney has appeared in TV shows like Hart of Dixie and Bones. Here she is with Dixie’s Rachel Bilson, being a good sport and making her “not impressed” face. Can you imagine how many times people have asked her to make that face in the past four years? It's incredible she hasn't lost it yet.
Maroney is looking forward to a future in music. Her upcoming single, “Ghost,” is scheduled to drop on September 8. Maroney describes her musical style as “vulnerable pop.” I'm not exactly sure what that means, but I'm pretty sure I'll love it.
We wish McKayla Maroney good luck with her music career, and we cannot wait to hear her new song this September.
In the meantime, here's a photo of Obama trying — and NAILING — the 'McKayla Unimpressed' look. If Maroney's music can have half the impact that her unimpressed look has had on pop culture, she'll be quite a successful artist.
