Full post here on LG. Travis Kelce is not letting up with his Taylor Swift pursuit. Even if it’s not true, even if she’s not interested, does she mind the attention? Do we want to see it happen? And if not him, then who? Discuss…
I encountered Matty Healy out and about when he was in town for Lolla. I had a real nightmare "picture him on top of you" moment. If Taylor wants to tangle with an athlete to restore and rebalance her energies, I understand.
Everything about this Taylor and Travis rollout feels scripted and hilarious and I'm not mad at it at all. Even looking back on his interview last week about the "ball in her court" and then her showing up for the KC home game. Like in my vivid imagination, I'm now picturing him in the huddle to Mahomes all like, let's run that play now with me in the endzone. It's time. She's here. LOLOLOLOLOL.
Most of her boyfriends/partners were artists of some type, right? Jake G, Hiddles, Joe - actors. Joe Jonas, Calvin Harris, Harry Styles - singers. Maybe an athlete era is what she needs.
Love the trousers, love the shoes, cannot figure out how someone as beautiful and rich as Taylor Swift can’t seem to sort her hair situation out 😩
I loved the pap walk with Sophie - *this* is how you weaponise your petty for good. As for the Travis situation, I’m not American so don’t have a clue about the NFL. But he’s hot and he’s not shy about making it known that he’s attracted to her. I think anyone coming out of a long term relationship would appreciate that.
He’s so tall and handsome as hell 🎶
I am a swiftie and even I'll admit Taylor is a narcissist and a mega famewhore. Taylor loves Taylor and Taylor loves Travis wanting Taylor, trust.
I would love this for Taylor - an athlete is so out of her wheelhouse, she might really enjoy the different sphere. Also, there are tons of sports, and if it's not a football guy, try a soccer , rugby, NBA dude. Just make sure they are in a team sport. I don't think an individual golfer could withstand the pressure on his backswing....
87 + 13 = 💯
I’m just sayin’…
He’s not being shy about being into her, and I can’t imagine that’s a turn off for Taylor. He’s got an established career of his own, seems to match her energy-wise, and can definitely handle the pressure of fame and attention because he’s definitely used to be harshly criticized. I say she goes for it, at the very least for funsies
She’s enjoying this, I think. Her publicist has been shutting down, on the record, any stories that continue to link her to Matty Healy (and shadily calling him Matt Healy lol). But there’s been no pushback on the Travis rumours.
If the lyrics on Midnights and her recent pap walks are any indication, she got bored of dimming her shine with Joe. So I can see how an attractive, successful guy who seems able to laugh off tabloid attention might appeal to her.
What a change in the sense of never going out anywhere (a bit of an exaggeration) with Joe Alwyn and now all of this public dating. I was struck by his Easter egg outfit nod to her music while she was wearing Chiefs gear. Thinking about some of Taylor’s relationships or at least what the public saw of them at times reminds me of the men Elizabeth Taylor married who were then annoyed that their wife was Elizabeth Taylor. Whatever else you can say about Travis K, he doesn’t seem the type to wake up one day annoyed at all of the attention his girlfriend gets.
I think she might not mind because he’s so well liked and popular. After the whole Healy thing and how her fanbase reacted, being linked to Travis won’t “hurt”. Not that she needs it in any way, shape or form, but it moves the conversation forward.
Did you guys see the date? We now have hard evidence! (They've been on a date). Also do you guys like his outfit? Buff for me it's a total turnoff, even though I appreciate guys who take fashion risks.
Regarding Tay's boyfriends and breakups, I wonder if her success is a factor. I'm a normal engineer and all throughout my dating like I've felt I've had to be careful not to sound too "successful" (I don't know how to say it exactly) with the guys I've dated. And I'm not CEO of a Fortune 500. Have you had the same experience?
Every time I hear of an Uber successful woman who's dealing with a breakup, I think whether this has been a factor
My friend and I have been debating this! Like she hates when her life is reduced to simply who she is or isn't dating. But he's unlike anyone she's known to have dated (I personally found the Arrowhead comment giving strong mediocre white man energy). I prefer the earlier comments about her love life saying she needs her Amal/Alexis but if she wants a fling with an athlete, then fine.
It’s giving “fast flames flame out fast” but we’re here for the gossip ride!!
I mean this is the most I have cared about TS since Miss Americana revelations about her political leanings, encouraging 135,000 voter registrations and her SA case--I like Taylor best when she utilizes her platform for good. But I do also want her to be happy and find a secure man who adores her and allows her to shine and stand in her power. This may or may not work out but am getting giddy HS sweetheart vibes watching this love story play out. Has anyone seen the TikTok compilation that starts with her TV interview from years ago saying that no man has ever done a grand gesture to win her affection, followed by Travis talking about making her a friendship bracelet and shooting his shot? Gah!
My two-cents: Honestly, I don't really listen to Taylor Swift except when I hear her in a store or someone else is playing her music (I'd say on the radio but who listens to radio anymore?). I admire her business acumen and she has massive talent. This is to say I'm nowhere near being a Swiftie. As for Travis Kelce, he was a huge part of a Wish that a girl near me had to meet Patrick Mahomes through Make-A-Wish. Travis was awesome with her and really helped her feel at ease when she was meeting her hero, Patrick. It seems to me Taylor's lucky Travis is interested in her, not the other way around. https://wish.org/ocie/mykas-wish-meet-patrick-mahomes
I'm obsessed with the idea of this couple! I love that he took his shot and openly expressed interest! They are both good looking, talented and seem to love the attention. It's great gossip!! It's her sports era!
Why not? That was round one of a grueling tour.
Just read the latest article. To be clear, the New Heights podcast was already one of the top ranked podcasts before the whole Taylor Swift thing. You only have to watch a few episodes to see them talking about how surprised they were by this. I agree he has had a bump, but he and his brothers were the focus of the Superbowl last year - their mom got several endorsement deals. Also, while the NFL appreciates the bump it is literally printing money on a regular basis. Without Taylor Swift Travis Kelce and the NFL are doing Ok.
I know in the past she has said she hasn't wanted her dating life to be on blast but that was then and she knew what she was doing. She was watching those cuts to her during the game and gave all the energy. I think she loves that he put it out there for everyone to see and knew that he's interested. Maybe it's a short hot affair or something that ends up going long term but he seems like he's able to handle the heat and from all accounts seems to be well liked and grounded. Go her
I feel like they come from similar family backgrounds with similar values vs when she was dating Jake G (who was raised in wealthy family from young age) singing about how she felt out classed by him.
The 1989 outfit Kelce wore after the game is 100% the 2023 version of Tom Huddleston in the I ❤️ T.S. Tshirt wore in 2016.
I just love how she’s basically with his mom watching him at work. Amazing.
I can’t edit from my phone- but I mean, she is directing the attention to herself by going out and being seen with various people, but NOT him.
As usual she is directing the attention but not commenting. She said herself she prefers to hide in plain sight. 😎
