World Cup 2014: Germany Defeats Argentina in Championship 1-0, Stars React
Among the millions of sports fans who tuned in to Sunday's World Cup championship game were some of music's biggest names, weighing in on the game online as Germany defeated Argentina 1-0 in extra time.
Rhianna was at the game in Rio de Janeiro, rooting for Germany and changed her Twitter profile image to a photoshopped pic of her wearing her team's flag as a swim suit. Several times, the pop star singer praised the game-winning Mario Götze as "Super fucking Mario!!!!!" Diplo cracked wise during the game, also rooting for Germany, saying at one point the game of FIFA on his phone was more interesting than the actual match. And Ed Sheeran, well, he'd just landed in Milan, Italy, and was about as concerned with the food he was eating as he was the game itself.
Here's a collection of the best social media posts from the day:
