On Wednesday, November 22, Travis Kelce set Swiftie hearts aflutter when he seemingly admitted to some special feelings for new girlfriend Taylor Swift on his New Heights podcast with his brother, Jason Kelce. During their chat, Kelce discussed his recent WSJ. Magazine cover story. He thinks they did a good job at showcasing what he “loves.”
“They did an awesome job with the article,” he stated. “I thought it was cool how they showcased just my love for not only Kansas City but my love for the people that I have around me. It was awesome.”
And who is around Kelce? In the last few months it’s been Taylor Swift, and her name came up quite a bit in his interview. But he did not mention her specifically in the podcast, though he did seem to allude to her again during another part of the brotherly chat.
With the release of the podcast coming just before Thanksgiving, the guys discussed their holiday plans. Kelce said he doesn’t have any, explaining, “I’ll be feasting on KFC because I won’t have anybody here.”
It was previously reported that Swift intended to fly home in between tour dates from Brazil, but her plans changed after the death of a fan on Friday, November 17. Dangerous heatwaves caused 23-year-old Ana Benevides Machado to collapse at the stadium where Swift was performing, a situation which “devastated” the Eras Tour singer according to her statement on Instagram Stories.
“I can’t believe I’m writing these words but it is with a shattered heart that I say we lost a fan earlier tonight before my show,” Swift wrote. “I can’t even tell you how devastated I am by this. There’s very little information I have other than the fact that she was so incredibly beautiful and far too young.”
The Saturday concert was postponed as the heat continued, which shortened her free time between her shows. She decided to stay in Brazil for the long weekend.
Jason invited his brother to make a “quick trip” to join him in Philadelphia, but the tight end deferred. He added that he enjoyed a “friendsgiving” with his teammates last weekend and it was “awesome.”
