Howard Stern is loving how much the NFL has become NFL (Taylor’s Version) as Taylor Swift continues to support her boyfriend Travis Kelce at Kansas City Chiefs games.
“I like when they cut to Taylor Swift,” Stern noted during his SiriusXM show this week. “I know what’s going to happen in the football game … let’s see some variables, let’s see how Taylor Swift reacts. Let’s see if she talks to Patrick Mahomes’ wife, let’s see how she’s getting along with Travis Kelce’s mom, let’s see if Travis Kelce’s brother comes in and starts running around with his shirt off.”
Longtime Howard Stern Show staffer Jon Hein agreed, noting, “I love the Taylor stuff. I think it’s great for the game, I think it’s great for her, I think it makes it entertaining, and plus there’s a ton of action on Taylor Swift — there’s prop bets like you wouldn’t believe.”
While Swift has been a mainstay at Kansas City Chiefs games throughout the season supporting Kelce, it’s unclear if she’ll be able to make it out to Las Vegas for the Super Bowl on Sunday (Feb. 11), in which the Chiefs will face off against the San Francisco 49ers. She’ll be kicking off the Asian and Australian legs of her Eras tour on February 7 to 10, with four shows at the Tokyo Dome in Japan. She then has a few days off before heading to Melbourne, Australia, for her show on Feb. 16.
Swift discussed the backlash to her presence at the games in her TIME Person of the Year interview last year. “I’m just there to support Travis,” she said in the cover story. “I have no awareness of if I’m being shown too much and pissing off a few dads, Brads and Chads.”
