Despite her run, how could Taylor Swift be anywhere else but on the winning side?
Swift was swamped by his famous suitemates as the Kansas City Chiefs pulled off an overtime victory over the San Francisco 49ers at Allegiant Stadium. He had previously entered the stadium with his famous friends. He hugged Blake Lively during a performance of Post Malone’s “America the Beautiful” and won what resembled a beer drinking contest by slamming his glass on the floor to an appreciative roar from fans.
The pop superstar flew halfway around the world to see her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, and his team play the San Francisco 49ers. The defending Super Bowl champions struggled through a sloppy first half riddled with miscues, then took their first lead with a touchdown in the third quarter, but the Niners took a three-point advantage early in the fourth quarter.
Swift completed her journey from Tokyo Dome to Allegiant Stadium for the match by passing through security with Lively, Ice Spice and her mother Andrea Swift. He was later seen talking with Kelce’s brother, Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in one of the custom boxes, which reportedly cost more than $1 million. Singer Lana Del Rey joined the celebrity-filled suite in time to catch Usher’s halftime show.
Swift, who has been with Kelce since the first few weeks of the NFL season, took a private plane across nine time zones and the international date line from the last of four shows at the Tokyo Dome in Japan, arriving about two hours before kickoff. . The time change allowed him to land in Los Angeles and make his final jump to Las Vegas.
The 14-time Grammy winner walked in wearing a black outfit and a red jacket slung over her shoulder, and it looked like she got the memo from Kelce and several Chiefs. He wore a shiny black suit, quarterback Patrick Mahomes wore a stylish black suit of his own, and even Chiefs coach Andy Reid wore a black jacket as he took on the role of Chiefs villain.
“Anti-Hero” will also be the lead single from Swift’s Grammy-winning album “Midnights.”
“He’s incredible. He’s rewriting the history books,” Kelce said one day after last Sunday’s Grammys. “I told him I had to keep up my end of the bargain and come home armed.”
Swift began dating Kelce after she said on her “New Heights” podcast that she tried and failed to give him a friendship bracelet during her performance at Arrowhead Stadium. Kelce then invited him to watch the Chiefs’ home performance, and he surprisingly showed up for their Week 2 game against Chicago.
Swift soon became a regular at games both home and away, often sitting alongside Brittany Mahomes, wife of Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Swift occasionally brought friends along, including Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds.
“Taylor being a new Chiefs fan is very unique,” Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said during Super Bowl week. “I never do an interview without someone asking me. I think many players and coaches in the team are in the same boat. “The most important thing is that we are happy for both of them that they found each other and have such a special relationship.”
There was plenty of star power besides Swift for the NFL’s big night. Usher’s halftime show featured guest artists Alicia Keys, Ludacris and Lil Jon. Reba McEntire sang the national anthem.
But few people would shine as brightly into the spotlight as Swift. While her escape from the Tokyo Dome, where she promised fans “we’re all going to go on a great adventure”, had Swifties around the world tuning in to her online flight trackers, her boyfriend appeared to be getting as many questions about his relationship as the game. during the run up to kick off.
When asked to explain the intense interest, Kelce replied: “I think the values we stand for and who we are as people; we love shining a light on others, we love shining a light on the people who help and support us, and on top of that, I think we both love life.”
No matter how the game turns out, Kelce and Swift won’t have much time together.
Swift will return to the Pacific later this week after winning the Grammy’s record-breaking fourth album of the year award for “Midnights,” which she announced will release her next album in April. The international leg of the Eras Tour continues in Australia on Friday night with the first of three shows at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
“This week has truly been the best kind of chaos,” she shared on Instagram on Wednesday.
