Travis Kelce pays Tribute to Taylor Swift on the latest episode of ‘New Heights’ Podcast

Travis Kelce Talks About the Effect Taylor Swift's Music Taste Has on Him

Travis Kelce recently performed his best Taylor Swift imitation when he mentioned his girlfriend’s song “Bad Blood”. Kelce, 34, caused a stir on social media on Wednesday after a video of him breaking into song during a new episode of New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce surfaced. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end and his brother, Jason, 36, were talking about quarterback Kenny Pickett’s rough departure from the Pittsburgh Steelers, which dealt Pickett, 25, to Jason’s previous team, the Philadelphia Eagles, on Friday.


According to multiple reports, including ESPN and, Pickett reacted negatively to the Steelers’ decision to sign quarterback Russell Wilson earlier this month. The tension reportedly led to a falling out between Pickett and Pittsburgh. The tight end took the opportunity to reference his girlfriend’s hit song “Bad Blood” from her album 1989 to describe the situation with Pickett.


“Kenny and the Steelers, their relationship ended in a little ‘baaad blood,’ ” the NFL star sang to the tune of Swift’s song. When ESPN’s Adam Schefter initially reported Wilson’s deal with the Steelers, Travis supported the move in a prior episode of New Heights. “Shoutout to Russ, man. Get another new start,” he said after his brother Jason read the report.


“He had a similar situation in Seattle,” Travis continued. “Great defense. Get you a run game. Got Najee Harris in there to hand that ball off to and got a young tight end in Pat [Freiermuth].” The reference to Swift’s song isn’t too much of a surprise after the NFL star saw her perform the hit song in concert multiple times since the Chiefs won the 2024 Super Bowl in February.


While the “Bad Blood” singer was performing shows on her Eras Tour in Sydney, Australia, Kelce and his friend Ross Travis flew out to visit Swift. Along with Swift’s tour opener Sabrina Carpenter, the group visited the Sydney Zoo on their trip. Kelce and his pal Travis, 31, were also spotted attending back-to-back nights of the Eras Tour in Singapore, where they traveled with the athlete’s manager, André Eanes and Eanes’ wife Amanda Santa.


Kelce’s buddy Harry Clark also posted a Boomerang video of himself wearing an Eras Tour wristband on Instagram Story, tagging the Singapore venue, National Stadium, as the location. The image was followed by a video of Swift performing on stage, captioned “GO TAY TAY.”


During the Singapore event, Kelce was seen dancing to another of Swift’s hits, “Look What You Made Me Do” from her 2017 album Reputation. In video footage posted on X from the stands, the tight end grinned and rocked to the performance with pals outside a suite. Swift is on a long vacation from gigs, and Kelce is in the middle of the NFL offseason, so the pair recently spent some time in Los Angeles.


A source recently stated that the pair is “still very happy” and “so cute together” as they reduce public appearances during their work vacations.
