After Biles previously withdrew from several events in the gymnastics championship, she did appear on beam and took the bronze medal. NBC takes a big hit in America with this performance and Swift introduces that piece of television.
What do we want from our heroes? What do we expect from them? What do we need from them? What happens when they surprise us? When the whole world looks at you, everything you do takes on greater meaning. That can be a heavy burden. It can be a change to change everything,” Taylor said.
She continues: ,,During the week, Simone’s voice has been as present as her talent. Her honesty is as beautiful as the perfection that has been her signature for so long. And you know, it still is. She is, after all, perfectly human. And that’s why it’s so easy to call her a hero. Simone Biles is all the way back with Team USA in Tokyo.”
Biles was deeply moved by Swift’s words, she said via Twitter. ,,I have to cry about this, it’s that special. I love you Taylor.” To which Swift replied, “No, I cried when I saw YOU. I feel blessed to have been able to watch you all these years, but last week was a lesson in emotional intelligence and resilience. Everyone has learned from you, thank you.”
