“I appreciate you saying this so much,” replied Swift. “I had the best time hanging out & talking on the tennis court with you! Pennsylvania girls represent Partying face Gonna be cheering you on for everything you do!”
Gray shared even more praise for Swift in a reply to a fan: “i’ve never met someone so kind and compassionate . also an absolute BUSINESS WOMAN. we love to see it.”
