Fresh from his exhilarating win at the 2024 Super Bowl, Patrick Mahomes, the exalted quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs, has done it again, causing a ruckus in pop culture by his proclaimed love of Taylor Swift's music.
During a quick-fire Q&A that aired on ESPN's TikTok at Disneyland, the 28-year-old NFL star just so happened to have revealed that Taylor Swift's "Love Story" was the last song he'd sung in the shower. This light-hearted confession not only profiled not Mahomes' eclectic taste in music but also ranks part of the global fan base of this pop sensation, known as the "Swifties." Meanwhile, Swift, 34, has become a bit of a media fixture due to her relationship with Mahomes' teammate, Travis Kelce.
Their relationship, publicly revealed in October, has been the talk of interest, especially following Swift's recognition as Time's 2023 Person of the Year. Humorously, she refuted the relationship's timeline to intensify sentiments of a deeper connection before their public debut.
Swift Balances Love and Tour
Swift was able to cap her spotless dedication to juggling her ultra-packed Eras Tour while also fitting in a timely slot to back Kelce as she jetted off from Tokyo to Las Vegas just in time for the Super Bowl.
Amidst all this hustle and bustle of logistics, Swift was able to be there to cheer her sweetheart on as he vied for the Vince Lombardi Trophy. The Chiefs took the thriller in overtime, 25-22, and showed both their grit and class.
Postgame, Swift, located in the private suite with Kelce's family, took off for the field to share in a celebratory moment with her significant other. The pair continued the evening in the Las Vegas night club Zouk, where at a performance of The Chainsmokers there was also an amusing performance of Kelce with a song "You Belong With Me," whose words were changed to "Are you in love with me?" This story of love, with a crossover of sport and romance, demonstrates Mahomes' openness to personal preference and Swift's commitment to the relationship amidst an intense professional schedule. This is a story for football and music lovers, where sport wins also high-profiled romantic interest.
