Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce called Taylor Swift “ballsy” for showing up to his game against the Bears during a Wednesday episode of his “New Heights” podcast.
Kelce spoke alongside his brother, Eagles center and co-host, Jason Kelce, about what it was like to experience Swift stealing the national football spotlight.
“Shoutout to Taylor for pulling up,” Kelce said. “That was pretty ballsy,” he said to his audience of 1.07 million YouTube subscribers.
Kelce went on to talk about the overall experience and what it was like for him to have Swift in the crowd during his win over the Bears.
“I just thought it was awesome that everybody in the suite had nothing but good things to say about her, the friends and family,” he said. “She looked amazing. Everybody was talking about her in great light, and on top of that, the day went perfect for the Chiefs,” he said.
Clips of Swift chest-bumping and shouting “let’s fucking go!” while celebrating Kelce’s touchdown made international headlines and put the spotlight on Kelce.
“The slow-motion chest bumps, the high-fives with mom. It was definitely a game I will remember. That’s for damn sure,” Kelce said on his podcast. (RELATED: ROOKE: Taylor Swift Wants The Best Of Both Worlds With Travis KelSOY, Forgets She Can’t Serve Two Masters)
“Then we just slid off in the getaway car at the end … Shoutout to Taylor for coming through and watching me rock the stage,” he said.
As for all the new attention he’s receiving, Kelce says he’s trying to maintain some type of normalcy.
“What’s real is that you know, it is my personal life. I want to respect both of our lives,” Kelce said.
“So everything moving forward, I think me talking about sports and saying alright now, will have to be kind of where I keep it,” he said.
