Travis Kelce, the “Anti-Hero” singer’s boyfriend, praised Swift’s support for the Kansas City Chiefs on SiriusXM NFL Radio during the Super Bowl’s opening night in Las Vegas on Monday.
“She’s all in,” the NFL star stated of Swift. “She’s part of Chiefs Kingdom 100%.”
Kelce touched on a prior question about how she manages the increased media attention that comes with dating the 14-time Grammy winner. “You asked me how it is,” Kelce continued. “And to be honest, I’m learning throughout this all.”
The two-time Super Bowl champion (Kelce won with the Chiefs in 2020 and 2023) said, “I’m just kind of on the plane ride, just cruising and trying to figure this thing out on the run,” as he navigates his rising celebrity while dating Swift.
“[Taylor Swift is] a part of @Chiefs Kingdom 100%.”

In another interview on Monday night, Kelce was asked about dating Swift. “Man, I’ll tell you something. “It’s a wild experience, but I’m enjoying and loving every minute of it,” Kelce added.
Kelce was the subject of several Swift-related inquiry on Monday, when over 6,000 media members from 26 nations flocked to Las Vegas for the media availability, and the Chiefs star didn’t hesitate to brag about his girlfriend.
“She is fantastic. “She’s rewriting the history books herself,” Kelce remarked of Swift’s unprecedented fourth Album of the Year award at Sunday’s Grammy Awards. “I told her I’d have to keep my end of the bargain and come home with hardware, too,” he said, alluding to a possible third Super Bowl victory.
Kelce stated that the attraction of the week has not decreased, despite the fact that the Chiefs have advanced to the Super Bowl four times in the previous six years.
“This is exciting. “It’s all exciting stuff,” Kelce told CBS. “It builds and establishes the tone for the entire week.” It’s the largest stage in the world. Monday night will be the beginning for everyone.”
He said, “At this stage, I really adore it; it’s an amazing moment. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing several times.” Despite the fact that Swift will be doing her 3.5-hour-long Eras Tour in Tokyo the day before the Super Bowl, the “Lover” singer will be able to go to Las Vegas for her 13th NFL game on February 11.
On Thursday, the Embassy of Japan published a statement assuring Swifties and NFL fans that the “Mastermind” singer could “comfortably” make the trip – using Swift’s album titles Speak Now, Fearless, and Red to illustrate their argument.
“Despite the 12-hour flight and 17-hour time difference, the Embassy can confidently Speak Now to say that if she departs Tokyo in the evening after her concert, she should comfortably arrive in Las Vegas before the Super Bowl begins,” the Embassy noted in its letter.
“We know that many people in Japan are excited to experience Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, so we wanted to confirm that anyone concerned can be Fearless in knowing that this talented performer can wow Japanese audiences and still make it to Las Vegas to support the Chiefs when they take the field for the Super Bowl wearing Red,” the statement concluded.
Swift’s appearance would come on the heels of her presence at the game that secured the Chiefs a consecutive AFC championship title. The singer joined Kelce on the field for the first time after the game, where he celebrated his victory with a kiss in front of friends and family.
