With Taylor Swift’s final show in Tokyo coming to an end on Saturday, all that’s left to do is run.

The superstar reportedly touched down at Los Angeles International Airport Saturday after she was rushed to Haneda Airport where her private jet waited for her once the show concluded. Super fans tracking the pop star’s travels believed she had reached LAX around 3:30 p.m., although the jet they identified as hers had all its windows drawn, barring views of the singer herself.

If the sleuths are right, Swift, with nearly 5,500 miles behind her, has only about 225 miles to go to reach Las Vegas, Nevada to see her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, play in the Super Bowl on Sunday. While the tight-end for the Kansas City Chiefs will certainly be there, Swift’s team has made no comment about her travel plans.

For once, it’d be kind of nice if someone was tracking Swift’s plane. Earlier this week, it was reported that the singer’s lawyers had threatened legal action against a college student who was doing just that. Swift has been criticized for her astoundingly high carbon footprint, mostly stemming from her use of her private jets, one of which she recently sold. Swift’s unease at being tracked might serve to explain the lack of official information about her flight.

Last week, the Japanese Embassy issued a statement explaining that it’d be entirely possible for Swift to depart from Japan on Saturday night after her concert, and “comfortably” arrive in Las Vegas with enough time to see Kelce play. In fact, because of the time change, in U.S. time Swift will arrive nearly five hours before she departs in Tokyo.

“This week is truly the best kind of chaos,” Swift wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday.

Yes Taylor, but all of the uncertainty is giving some of us heartburn.
