Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce have been dating for several months now, and if there is one thing that Swifties have noticed it is that the singer has been basking in the spotlight alongside her new lover–than ever before.
According to reports, Kelce reflected on the non-stop interview questions, the paparazzi following them around, and netizens’ prying eyes on their relationship.
“I brought this upon myself, and I do enjoy having fun with it all, and the biggest thing is making sure my focus is right here in this building,” the football player said.
He also noted that it is inevitable since he is dating one of the most popular, influential people in the entertainment industry today.
“As long as we’re happy, we can’t listen to anything that’s outside noise,” Kelce added about how he and Swift are navigating their way through all the media onslaught. “That’s all that matters.”
Taylor Swift Wants to be “Bejeweled’
Before dating Kelce, Swift briefly dated The 1975’s frontman Matty Healy, and before him, she dated actor Joe Alwyn for six years.
Unlike her relationship with Kelce and Healy, the “Cruel Summer” singer’s romance with Alwyn was kept under wraps at all times, and they did not even make a red-carpet debut as a couple.
It seems like the singer was not a fan of the secrecy too much, as she seemingly shaded her ex-boyfriend in a song titled “Bejeweled.”
“When you say a relationship is public, that means I’m going to see him do what he loves, we’re showing up for each other, other people are there and we don’t care,” Swift told TIME.
“The opposite of that is you have to go to an extreme amount of effort to make sure no one knows that you’re seeing someone. And we’re just proud of each other.”
The “Karma” singer has been spotted at Kelce’s football games almost every weekend since last year, meanwhile, Kelce was seen in two of Swift’s “The Eras” tour shows.
Taylor Swift’s Relationship With Joe Alwyn
Unlike her romance with Kelce, which bloomed under the constant scrutiny of the public, Swift’s relationship with Alwyn flourished behind the scenes.
The couple made sure that they did not share too much about their love to the public.
“We live in a culture that is so increasingly intrusive,” the actor said in 2022. “The more you give – and frankly, even if you don’t give it – something will be taken.”
