Olympian McKayla Maroney Has People Talking About Her New Career
Written by Carly Walker
This is what she has to say about her new music career: ‘I haven’t talked about it much (mainly because people wouldn’t take me seriously) but for the last year I’ve dedicated all my time to writing/making music.’
She adds ‘And I can finally officially say that I’ve got some cool stuff on the way for you guys. Hope you like dancing.’ Her fans are already anticipating what sort of music artist she will be.
McKayla tells Seventeen that her biggest musical inspiration is Drake, and that she has been experimenting with different types of music for her album. ‘For the last year, I was just figuring out my sound. I’ve loved writing songs since I was really young. I thought I was going to be like Sia and sell my songs to people. But after they were done, I was like ‘I’m not going to sell these to anybody! I want to sing them,’ she said.
She also wants to get into acting, which is why she has already had guest spots on shows like ‘Hart of Dixie’ and ‘Bones.’ She explains that she likes that you can have do-overs in acting, which is something you can’t do as a gymnast.
