The celebrity-gossip industrial complex is about to crash into the savagery of sports media. Cover your eyes.
Has taylor swift ever been more popular, more all-powerful, more white Beyoncé than she is right now? She’s in the middle of an era-defining tour that is literally called the Eras Tour. A concert-film version of the show is about to arrive in theaters nationwide—she dropped the news a few weeks ago, and within hours, Hollywood studios were scrambling to get their movies out of her way. The bracelets are everywhere. And now, to her vast dominion, she has added untold millions of football-loving (mostly) men, thanks to her escalating flirtations with the Kansas City Chiefs’ sexy goofus tight end, Travis Kelce.

(Actually, it’s unclear if she blew him off or just had no idea who he was.) In any case, he confessed to being “butthurt” by the rejection. But he didn’t give up. This month, on an episode of The Pat McAfee Show on ESPN, Kelce revealed that he’d invited Swift to the Chiefs’ upcoming home game against the Chicago Bears.
