Travis Kelce’s favourite Taylor Swift song as he prepares for the Super Bowl is ‘Anti-Hero’.
The NFL star, 34, whose Kansas City Chiefs side will face the San Francisco49ers in this year’s tournament in Las Vegas on Sunday (11.02.24), added the track by his 34-year-old girlfriend Taylor Swift – who he’s been dating since July 2023 – has grown on him as he hears it so much.
He said in a press conference ahead of the match when asked to name his top Taylor tune: “Right now, I’d probably say ‘Anti-Hero’ just ’cause I hear it every single day.”
Travis has previously opened up about how he loves the lyrics of one of Taylor’s hits from her ‘1989’ album, telling WSJ. magazine in November: “‘Blank Space’ was one I wanted to hear live for sure: ‘I could make a bad guy good for the weekend.’
“That’s a helluva line.”
Travis added he thought Taylor was a musical “genius” – joking she writes “catchy jingles”.
He added about how being with Taylor is expanding his intellectual horizons: “I’ve never been a man of words. “Being around her, seeing how smart Taylor is, has been mind-blowing. I’m learning every day.”
Despite his hero worship of Taylor, tight end Travis this week brushed off suggestions he could propose to the singer at the Super Bowl.
A reporter referenced the Super Bowl ring he could be handed if his team emerge victorious this weekend by asking Travis: “Is there going to be another ring besides the Super Bowl ring if you win this thing on Sunday?”
But the NFL star shut down suggestions he could reveal an engagement ring for Taylor by replying: “I’m focused on getting this ring, and that’s all that my mind’s focused on right now.”
Taylor, who is in Tokyo, Japan, to resume her Eras Tour, will travel to Las Vegas later this week to support her boyfriend in the Super Bowl.
