Unless you have been living under a rock, you have probably seen some sort of post on any form of social media, whether it be Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or Tik Tok, about the relationship between pop star Taylor Swift and Super Bowl champ Travis Kelce. I am here to fill you in on why this is so huge and what you need to know! 

Just this past Sunday, Taylor Swift was spotted at the Kansas City Chiefs’ Stadium in Kansas City for the Chiefs vs. Bears game. Why does this matter? Many think she was there to watch Travis Kelce. This was backed up by the fact that she was in Kelce’s private box and was sitting next to and found laughing with his mom, Donna Kelce. To add on, she was wearing the Kansas City Chiefs colors. If that wasn’t enough proof, when Travis Kelce got a touchdown, Taylor Swift was seen jumping for joy and smiling.  

But, why did she come to this game? Just a little while ago, Kelce said to Swift, “I’ve seen you rock the stage in Arrowhead. You might have to come see me rock the stage in Arrowhead and see which one’s a little more lit.” Fans speculate that there may be a romance sparked between the two celebrities. On top of his statement to Swift, he also gave her a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it.  

After the game, there was video evidence of Swift and Kelce walking hand in hand and saying hi to others in what appeared to be a behind the scenes area of the stadium. Once they left, the pair rented out a whole restaurant for the team and the families. They paid for all customers’ meals before the customers had to leave.  

And if that wasn’t all crazy enough, after the game, Travis Kelce was seen in a light blue and white outfit which are not only the signature colors of 1989 an album by Taylor, but when they are looked up, they are listed as the “1989 Bedroom Painting Set”. If this isn’t an ode to Taylor’s upcoming re-release, I don’t know what is.  

While this is all still speculation, I am rooting for the couple. I have never been so invested in pop culture as I am now and I sincerely hope that this works out for Taylor Swift. They could be the power couple of the century! Do you think they are a couple now? Will they work out? Only time will tell!
