UPDATE: 8:00 p.m. EDT – After the Kansas City Chiefs’ winning streak ended, Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” played in the stadium. The defeat against the Denver Broncos with 9:24.
Taylor Swift was not seen in the stadium to cheer him on Travis Kelce as the Kansas City Chiefs tight end and his team faced the Denver Broncos for the second time this season.
Shortly after the game began, commentators noted that Swift, 33, had not been seen at Empower Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver on Sunday, October 29th.
A source previously explained that the singer doesn’t plan to attend every game. “Taylor doesn’t want to distract Travis,” an insider said exclusively Us weekly earlier this month. “She knows it’s not easy when she shows up to his games. It’s a spectacle. She wants to support him and create balance, but at the same time not distract the team.”
Despite her absence, the Grammy winner was still a topic of discussion. Commentators continued to note that Kelce’s performance improved with Swift in the audience. Swift made her first appearance at a Chiefs game on September 24th and the team has been on a winning streak ever since.
“Taylor was there and it turns out it was a good thing she was there because they put out your stats – when she’s at the game, when she’s not at the game. I don’t know if you’re aware of that,” Jason, 35, said on the Wednesday, Oct. 25, episode of the Siblings Podcast, referencing Swift’s attendance at the Oct. 22 game against the Los Angeles Chargers . Travis then replied, “How could I not know?”
Jason then called out Travis’ stats, which went viral when CBS showed them on air during the game. “When TSwift is in the game, you average 99 yards,” the Philadelphia Eagles center noted. “And if you’re just there with your friends and remaining family, you’re at 46.5 yards per game.”
Ultimately, Travis made light of the graphic, which included a reference to Swift’s 2022 hit “Anti-Hero.” He quipped: “‘Left to your own devices.’ Well put.”
Swift has not yet traveled to an away game, although she previously attended one when the Chiefs defeated the New York Jets on October 1, and made a quick trip to East Rutherford, New Jersey, from her home in nearby New York City. took over.
While Swift has only seen four games in person so far, she has already seen Kelce play against the Broncos this season. Earlier this month, she was in the stands at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, when the Chiefs won their game against the Denver-based team on Oct. 12. Her interaction with Kelce’s father, Ed Kelceduring the game made headlines at the time, with Travis and his brother, Jason Kelcelater joked about it on her “New Heights” podcast.
“If you know Dad like I know Dad,” Travis said during the Oct. 18 episode, to which Jason replied, “He shouldn’t be talking to Taylor Swift.”
Travis added that it was “terrifying” to imagine Swift’s conversation with his father, quipping, “I feel terrible for Taylor.”
Although Travis had concerns about his father’s interactions with Swift, the pair seemed to get along well. “I’ll tell you something very special that I noticed about Taylor when I first met her,” Ed said People in an interview published on Monday, October 23rd. “We’re sitting in the suite, she gets up and in the front room she gets up to get a drink or something and she starts collecting empty bottles, cans, plates, etc. that are scattered everywhere.”
This gesture gave Ed a great first impression of Swift. “Because in the suites, everyone gets stuff and you empty it wherever you can,” he continued. “And I just think, I don’t think she got the diva memo. She didn’t understand the spoiled musician. She doesn’t know how to do it. And that really said a lot to me.”
