    I must disagree in that Taylor Swift is a big thing. She's one of the most prominent and successful pop/country singers of today. I don't like her track record with guys either, but that doesn't say anything about her musical talent. However, the fact that she and Gracie have spent some time together (and that both like red lipstick) doesn't show anything about Gracie's standing in the skating world. The only thing that will demonstrate that is a few championships outside the U.S., and I think it has to happen this year.

    I can't remember whom Michelle knew when she was fifteen and starting to win everything in sight. I'm sure a lot of people in high places would have wanted to spend time with her, but whether anyone did is, again, not relevant to her excellence as a skater.

    Let's just say that, even in the showbiz, Swift got a very bad reputation.

    She is a very bad singer too. The cover of her music got better reception than the original. Like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vm6YB4XsQXE

    bad singer, that is about musical taste,
    also Taylor Swift is well known even outside of the US

    Taylor Swift is Friends with Gracie, nothing wrong with that
    No need to discredit her, more articles of the rising Gracie and Taylor friendship:

    It's also a matter of taste whether Edward Hopper's The House by the Railroad is superior to some paint-by-the-numbers piece of Thomas Kinkade, but none-the-less opinions holding Kinkade as superior are still idiotic.

    Anyway, if Gracie wants to be friends with Swift, so be it. I just hope that she doesn't skate to Taylor Swift's [Insert Boys Are Mean To Me song] with lyrics in the grand prix events next fall.

    Discredit Swift? No need. She did that all by herself. As for Gracie, you are the only one around here who demolished her profile.

    To answer the thread title:

    If Gracie Gold doesn't win a Grand Prix event, her Hollywood friend(s) will abandon her.

    like Gracie with Taylor Swift
    Taylor does have connections to Hollywood but not as much as she does in the music industry. There's a lot of overlap and cross-pollination between the film and music industries, but I think if Gracie has any real pull it would be through her agency.
    And Ms. Swift while popular also has a LOT of detractors in the entertainment world, and for all her popularity some in the country music scene think she's not a proper country musician anymore even if she's the biggest seller in the genre. Hopefully Gracie isn't subject to the same criticism by virtue of her friendship with Taylor.
    Does Gracie have an IMDB page yet?

    She does! An extensive body of work, that would surely make Michelle Kwan seethe with jealousy.

    The definition of the relevance of any sportsman? Yes, she does.

    She is a great skater....but I think she is not mentally strong to control the pressure in the international event.

    I'm sort of worried about those double axels. It seems like they've been an issue since Sochi.

    Gracie was having an issue with the solo flip in the FS at Nationals and Sochi, not the axel. She landed the solo flip with no problem at Worlds, but the axel was a new problem.

    The axel looked a bit weird in Sochi but she landed it ok. At worlds it became real problem and judging by SOI reports she's still struggling with it.
