“Watched This So Many Times”: Taylor Swift Reacts to Simone Biles Using…

The pop superstar reacted on X (formerly Twitter) to the Olympic champion gymnast’s use of her track during her floor routine on Friday, June 28

Taylor Swift is in awe of Simone Biles’ talent!

The Olympic champion gymnast, 27, used Swift’s track “Ready for It” for the beginning part of her floor routine during day 2 of the 2024 U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Trials on Friday, June 28, and the pop superstar, 34, has shared her thoughts about it.

“Watched this so many times and still unready. She’s ready for it tho👏👏👏🥇🇺🇸❤” Swift wrote on X on Saturday, June 29, in reaction to a video of the routine posted by the NBC Olympics & Paralympics account.

In the film, Biles begins her routine to Swift’s single from her 2017 album Reputation, even accomplishing what a pundit characterized as the “hardest tumbling pass in the world,” — the triple-double — while the song plays.

Biles, a seven-time Olympic champion, made history in 2019 as the first woman to complete the challenging gymnastics move during the U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Kansas City, Mo.

During her June 28 floor routine, the famous gymnast also chose Travis Scott’s single “Delresto (Echoes),” which features Beyoncé, and her performance helped her finish first in the first half of the women’s qualifying.

Her routines on the floor, bars, and vault allowed her to overcome a couple wobbles in the beam event and come out on top.

Biles has been performing at the Target Center in Minneapolis, supported by her mother Nellie and husband, Chicago Bears athlete Jonathan Owens. Swift is currently on her Eras Tour in Europe, where she is thrilling audiences.

The singer is presently in Ireland, following celebrity-packed gigs in London, England, which included an on-stage cameo by her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce.

Swift performed at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Friday, June 28 and Saturday, June 29. During the 1989 section of her Friday show, she wore the colors of the Irish flag. The next day, she discussed how she developed the fictional story of her pandemic-era album, Folklore, which is connected to Ireland.

“Folklore in general, it just belongs in Ireland,” she told the crowd after finishing her rendition of “Cardigan.”

“How I imagined the album world looking [was like] Ireland. Storytelling with lots of different characters,” Swift added, referencing her stories in the album. “You guys have that on lock, too. That’s very Irish, the storytelling.”
