Travis Kelce is a 1989 Swiftie!
In a new Wall Street Journal profile on Kelce, the Kansas City tight end revealed his favorite Taylor Swift lyric from the 2014 album that recently got the re-recorded treatment. “‘Blank Space’ was one I wanted to hear live for sure. I could make a bad guy good for the weekend. That’s a helluva line,” he shared. Funny enough, both Swift and Kelce were born in 1989.
“I’ve never been a man of words. Being around her, seeing how smart Taylor is, has been f—ing mind-blowing. I’m learning every day,” he added.
“Obviously I’ve never dated anyone with that kind of aura about them…. I’ve never dealt with it,” Kelce said of dating someone as famous as Swift. “But at the same time, I’m not running away from any of it…. The scrutiny she gets, how much she has a magnifying glass on her, every single day, paparazzi outside her house, outside every restaurant she goes to, after every flight she gets off, and she’s just living, enjoying life. When she acts like that I better not be the one acting all strange.”
Kelce’s courtship of Swift began back in July, when he tried (and failed) to hand her a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it during her Eras Tour stop in Kansas City — at his Arrowhead Stadium home field.
