Taylor Swift Praises Simone Biles In New Promo: ‘Easy To Call Her A Hero’ – Taylor Swift is gushing over Simone Biles for the Olympic athlete’s “emotional intelligence and resilience.”
“We all learned from you,” the pop singer-songwriter wrote to Biles. “Thank you.”
Biles withdrew from the Olympic team final, explaining that she needed to focus on her mental health. She made history during her Olympic competition comeback on Tuesday (August 3), earning the bronze medal on the balance beam. Biles tied the record for the “most Olympic medals won by a U.S. gymnast,” according to Team USA.
The same day, Swift lent her voice to an NBC promo for the Tokyo Olympics, gearing fans up to watch Biles on the beam.
“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?” Swift narrates. “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.”
Swift continued to praise Biles, saying:
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. https://t.co/VQxyeEf0mJ— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) August 3, 2021
“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.”
Naturally, Swift returned the love:
