Jason Kelce only has positive things to say about Taylor Swift.
Travis Kelce’s older brother shared his perspective on the NFL’s much-debated coverage of Swift at Chiefs games. “The attention’s there because the audience wants to see it, I mean, if people didn’t want to see it they wouldn’t be showing it, I know that,” the 36-year-old Eagles player said of the “world star” during an interview with WCPO, shared on X.com by reporter Caleb Noe.
“She’s the quintessential, you know, artist right now in the world right now,” he continued, calling Swift “immensely talented” and an “unbelievable role model for young women across the globe.”
So, no. Jason Kelce does not think the NFL is showing Taylor Swift too much during football games. “I think that the NFL would probably be foolish not to, you know, show her and show [her being] a role model for all the young girls out there,” he said.
Jason Kelce’s words echo the thoughts of his own wife, Kylie Kelce, who recently discussed Swift’s impact on football with Glamour. “To see that other young girls are getting involved and that they want to sit down and cheer with their dads or they’re finding their own reason to be interested, it’s only something that can be painted in a positive and exciting light,” she said. “It’s just another way to encourage girls to appreciate sport.”
Jason and Kylie Kelce first met Taylor Swift in person at the Chiefs’ playoff game against the Buffalo Bills due to the Kelce brothers’ conflicting schedules during the regular NFL season. Now, Swift is predicted to join them in cheering on her boyfriend’s team at the 2024 Super Bowl.
“Shout out to the newest members of the Chiefs Kingdom,” Jason said during the most recent episode of the New Heights podcast. “Taylor Swift, who has officially reached the Super Bowl in her rookie year.”
“Shout out to Tay!” Travis Kelce added. “Thanks for joining the team!”
