Taylor Swift kisses Travis Kelce on the field after his Chiefs beat the 49ers in the Super Bowl

LAS VEGAS (AP) — With the journey she’s on, how could Taylor Swift be anything other than on the winning side?

She kissed her boyfriend Travis Kelce and the couple locked lips on the field at Allegiant Stadium after her Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in the Super Bowl.

Moments earlier, Swift was smiling, her eyes brimming with tears as she stood next to Kelce’s mother while he held up the Lombardi Trophy, shouting “Chiefs Nation!” and bellowing a chorus of “Viva Las Vegas.”

Minutes before, she had been smothered by famous suitemates, including, at various times, Blake Lively, Ice Spice and Lana Del Rey, when the Chiefs scored the game-winning touchdown in overtime, set up by a key reception from Kelce for a first try.

It was the second straight Super Bowl victory for the Chiefs, but the first since Swift became fan-in-chief. She and Kelce started dating shortly before the season started.

It completes an epic streak for Swift, who won album of the year a week earlier for a record fourth time at the Grammys, where she also announced the release of a new album in April before s flying to Japan for a series of stadium shows.

Shortly after flying halfway around the world to the game, she went through security to enter the stadium with Lively, Ice Spice and her mother, Andrea Swift. She gave Lively a hug during Post Malone’s performance of “America the Beautiful” and won what appeared to be a beer drinking contest, slamming down her mug to a roar of appreciation from fans.

She was seen talking to Kelce’s brother, Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in one of the private boxes that reportedly cost more than $1 million. Del Rey joined the celebrity-filled suite in time to catch Usher’s halftime show.

Swift flew aboard a private plane across nine time zones and the international date line for the last of four shows at the Tokyo Dome to arrive about two hours before kickoff. The time change allowed him to land in Los Angeles and make the final jump to Las Vegas.

The 14-time Grammy winner arrived wearing a black outfit with a red jacket slung over her shoulder, apparently getting the memo from Kelce and many of the Chiefs. He wore a shimmering black suit, quarterback Patrick Mahomes wore his own black suit and even Chiefs coach Andy Reid wore a black blazer as the Chiefs leaned into the role of villains.

“Anti-Hero” also happens to be the lead single from Swift’s Grammy-winning album “Midnights.”

” She is incredible. She’s rewriting the history books herself,” Kelce said a day after the Grammys. “I told him I should keep my end of the bargain and come home with some gear too.”

Swift began dating Kelce after he said on her “New Heights” podcast that he tried and failed to give her a friendship bracelet during her performance at Arrowhead Stadium. Kelce then invited her to watch him play at the Chiefs’ home, and she surprisingly showed up for their Week 2 game against Chicago.

Swift quickly became a regular at games, home and away, frequently sitting down with Brittany Mahomes, the wife of Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Swift occasionally brought friends, including Lively and her husband, Ryan Reynolds.

“Having Taylor as a new Chiefs fan is very unique,” ​​Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said during Super Bowl week. “I never do an interview without someone asking me. I think a lot of the players and coaches on the team are in the same boat. The most important thing is that we are happy for the two of them to find each other and have such a special relationship.

There was plenty of star power besides Swift for the NFL’s marquee night. Usher’s halftime show included guest artists Alicia Keys, Ludacris and Lil Jon. Reba McEntire sang the national anthem. Beyoncé, who was also in attendance, appeared in a commercial and released two new songs in the second half.

However, few have been in the spotlight brighter than Swift. Her departure from Tokyo, where she promised her fans that “we’re all going to have a great adventure”, had Swifties around the world looking at flight trackers online, while her boyfriend seemed to have just as many questions about his relationship than on the game during the before kick-off.

When asked to explain his intense interest, Kelce responded, “I think the values ​​that we stand for and who we are as people – we like to shine a light on other people, shine a light on the people that we help and support us, and on top of that. , I think we both love life.

Kelce and Swift won’t have much time together to party. She is due to cross the Pacific later this week. The international leg of his Eras tour resumes on Friday evening in Australia with the first of three shows at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

“This week is truly the best kind of chaos,” she posted on Instagram on Wednesday.
