Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce: A New Power Couple in the Making?
“Taylor Swift cuts TV promo for NFL game”
Taylor Swift is no stranger to making headlines, but her latest appearance at a NFL game has sparked a lot of speculation and excitement among fans. The pop superstar was spotted at the MetLife Stadium on Sunday, October 1, 2023, cheering for the Kansas City Chiefs as they faced the New York Jets. But what caught everyone’s attention was not just her presence, but also her apparent connection with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.
Swift and Kelce were seen leaving the stadium together and attending an after party in downtown Kansas City. A source close to the pair told ET that they have been “hanging out” and “getting to know each other” for a while, and that they have “a lot in common” and “similar values”. The source also revealed that Swift is a big fan of Kelce’s game and his personality, and that Kelce is equally smitten with Swift’s music and charm.
The rumors of their romance were further fueled by a promotional video for the Sunday Night Football game, which featured Swift’s song “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version)” as the soundtrack. The video showed clips of Kelce’s impressive plays on the field, as well as shots of Swift singing along to her song in the stands. The video ended with a close-up of Kelce smiling and winking at the camera, as Swift’s voice crooned “Say you’ll remember me”.

The NBC spot’s use of Swift’s song is understandable, but it may come as a surprise given that Fox Sports just reported that its request to use Swift’s music during last weekend’s Chiefs-Bears game broadcast, which captured multiple clips of the singer’s surprise attendance, had been denied.
According to Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews, Swift and her record label Big Machine Records did not grant permission for Fox to use any of her songs, citing contractual issues. Andrews speculated that Swift might have wanted to save her music for a bigger platform, such as NBC or Peacock.
Swift has not publicly commented on her relationship with Kelce, nor has she confirmed or denied the reports of her music being restricted from Fox. However, fans are eagerly waiting for more clues and updates from the potential new power couple, who seem to have a lot of chemistry and charisma. Whether they are just friends or something more, Swift and Kelce have certainly captured the attention of both the music and sports worlds.
