Travis Kelce & Taylor Swift Now Have $850 Chiefs Jackets

Kansas City, MO – Kansas City Chiefs tight end and likely NFL MVP Travis Kelce made headlines this week for more than his historic 3-touchdown performance helping dominate the Jacksonville Jaguars in Saturday’s playoff victory. Celebrating post-game in the locker room, Kelce unknowingly attracted viral attention by awkwardly name-dropping megastar Taylor Swift during an interview as his first pick for who he’d want to hang with while donning the custom Chiefs letterman-style jacket he had just earned.

“My colors are Tyreek Hill, Jason Kelce, William ‘Fat Willy’ Hefner…and Taylor Swift,” the colorful quote captured on video singled out.

A clip containing the unexpected Swift shoutout quickly exploded across sports media and Swiftie fan networks alike – catching the superstar musician’s eye herself. Never one to miss a cheeky marketing moment, Swift took to social media on Monday announcing that Chiefs leadership had sent her the same $850 varsity jacket Kelce and teammates had received for winning their division.

“This song is SO catchy…@TKelce,” Swift posted on Twitter alongside photos showing her proudly wearing the Chiefs coat featuring Kelce’s number 87 on the sleeve, sparking a viral sensation surpassing even six-time Grammy winner Swift’s normally astronomic engagement levels.

Record Company Donates $10K to Chiefs Charity

In what has become an internet lovefest between musical superfans, Kelce responded in a quote tweet with his own pictures wearing Swift’s commemorative New York Yankees shirt from her 2023 tour at Yankee Stadium along with his girlfriend Kayla Nicole appropriately donning Swift’s signature Reputation-era snake ring. Not stopping there, Kelce and the Chiefs announced Swift’s record company UMG Nashville will also donate $10,000 in the singing star’s honor to the Chiefs’ charitable arm supporting community education initiatives – perfectly punctuating the heartwarming social media exchange between celebrities from two very different worlds.

“Love the song Forever Winter! Should we collab on a TikTok remake @taylorswift13?” Kelce replied.

Kelce Set For Today Show Interview This Week

While Chiefs Kingdom buzzes about what may come next as Swift’s infectious new “Anti-Hero” tune continues soundtracking playoff victory celebrations, Kelce himself prepares for media rounds in advance of this weekend’s upcoming AFC Divisional Round where KC is favored.

His talk show appearances start by guest hosting Today Show’s fourth hour Wednesday alongside co-host Dylan Dreyer where fan questions will undoubtedly include “will Taylor make a cameo?” along with football topics as the Chiefs hype escalates coast-to-coast. Kelce and Swift proving music and sports superstars can intersect, collaborate and become fast friends – the perfect harmony striking celebratory notes for all.
