Taylor Swift Couldn’t Make It To Travis Kelce’s Super Bowl Ring Ceremony, But She Stayed Up Late to Watch on IG: ‘LETS GOOOOOOOO’


The singer even hopped into the comments from Liverpool to congratulate wide receiver Mecole Hardman on his contract extension.

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce have made a very sweet habit of flying across the planet to support each other over the past nine months, but on Thursday (June 13), Swift could not make the quick pond hop to help the Kansas City Chiefs tight end celebrate the team’s Super Bowl ring ceremony. She had a great excuse, though: she was preparing for her second and third shows at Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium in England, tonight (June 14) and tomorrow night (June 15).

The Chiefs gathered on Thursday at KC’s Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art for the final celebration of this year’s Super Bowl LVIII win over the San Francisco 49ers and to pick up their mega-bling rings, which each shine with 529 diamonds and 38 rubies. Always-dapper Kelce showed up in a red suit and white t-shirt, and while Taylor could not be there to celebrate with him, she dipped into the IG live feed of wide receiver Mecole Hardman’s partner, Chariah Gordon, to follow along.

The singer also jumped into the comments to express her excitement — according to screenshots posted by fans — getting hyped with a series of all-caps posts. “YESSSSSS,” she wrote in a compilation of the comments posted on X. That was followed by, “CONGRATULATIONS,” “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH,” “JOINING THE PARTY FROM LIVERPOOL LETS GOOOOOOO.” The football-loving pop star who became a fixture at Chiefs games last year even took time to congratulate Hardman for signing a contract extension with the team, writing, “AND WE GET ANOTHER YEAR OF MECOLE.”

But, alas, due to the five hour time difference, Swift had to get some shut eye to prepare for Friday night’s (June 14) second Eras Tour show in Liverpool, so she signed off by saying, “Gotta go to sleep it’s so late here love you guys.” At press time a spokesperson for Swift had not returned requests seeking confirmation that the comments were posted by the singer.
