Simone Biles has Taylor Swift in her corner.
After dropping out of a number of events to focus on his sanity, the American athlete took to the beam at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Before the event, Swift voiced a very special clip of Biles’ journey so far and the “heavy burden” of having the world’s attention on you.

“Over the past week, her voice has been as important as her talents,” says Swift. “His honesty as beautiful as the perfection that has long been his signature.”
“But can’t you see, she’s perfectly human,” she continues as the clip settles to her song “This Is Me Trying”. “And that’s what makes it so easy to call him a hero.”
Seeing the clip, Biles tweeted, “I’m crying. how special. I love you @ taylorswift13.
Swift quickly responded, “I cried looking at you. I feel so lucky to have been able to watch you all these years, but this week has been a lesson in emotional intelligence and resilience. We have all learned from you. . Thank you.”
