Taylor Swift tells Simone Biles that she “cried” seeing her “resilience” at Tokyo Olympics12.08.2021
Taylor Swift is a true friend. And another week, she was just that for Simone Biles, who proved she’s just as human as the rest of us.
As we all saw, Simone made her return to the Olympic stage for the balance beam competition on August, 3.
To support her, Taylor Swift recorded a special message that hyped up both Simone and her fans at home.
“When you have the attention of the world, everything you do takes on a bigger meaning. It can be a heavy burden. It can be a chance to change everything.”
“Throughout the last week, her voice has been as significant as her talents, her honesty as beautiful as the perfection that had long been her signature. But don’t you see? It still is. She’s perfectly human. And that’s what makes it so easy to call her a hero. Simone Biles. Back on the beam. In Tokyo.”
Simone was touched by it so much, she posted on Tweeter: “I’m crying, how special. I love you @taylorswift13.”
“I cried watching YOU. I feel so lucky to have gotten to watch you all these years, but this week was a lesson in emotional intelligence and resilience. We all learned from you. Thank you.” – that was Taylor’s response.
