Travis Kelce shouts out Taylor Swift on his podcast for 'seeing me rock the stage'

It was the podcast episode of "New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce" that virtually the whole country wanted to hear.

After having pop superstar Taylor Swift accept his invitation of attending his Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Travis Kelce discussed the massive attention that has come with it.

The Kelce brothers teased the subject a handful of times in the first half hour of the podcast, which is presented by Wave Sports + Entertainment. But at 32:46 into the episode, titled "Eagles Stay Unbeaten, Travis’ 'Biggest Catch' and New Football Eras," Jason Kelce started it off.

"All righty, we're here," the older brother said.

"We're finally here, huh?" Travis said with some reluctance before admitting, "I did this to myself, Jason, I know this."

Travis got into it by praising Swift for attending the game.

"Shout out to Taylor for pulling up. That was pretty ballsy," Travis started. "I just thought it was awesome how everybody in the suite had nothing but great things to say about her. The friends and family. She looked amazing, everybody was talking about her in a great light. And on top of that, the day went perfect for Chiefs fans, of course. We script it all ladies and gentlemen. It was just impressive. …"

He continued: "… To see the slow-motion chest-bumps, to see the high-fives with Mom, to see how Chiefs Kingdom was all excited she was there, that (expletive) was absolutely hysterical. It was definitely a game I’ll remember, that’s for damn sure.

"And then we just slid off in the getaway car in the end. Took my Chevelle to the game. … Shout out to Taylor for coming through and seeing me rock the stage."

Kelce, who has 11 catches for 95 yards and two touchdowns this season, went on to discuss how he has handled the extra attention brought on by the curiosity of his relationship with Swift. The four-time All-Pro said he has noticed paparazzi outside of his house with cameras, screaming his name and taking pictures.

"I know that I brought all this attention to me. I’m the one that did the whole friendship bracelet thing and told everybody how butt hurt I was that I didn’t get to meet Taylor," Kelce said. "You miss 100% shots you don’t take, baby.

"What’s real is that it is my personal life. I want to respect both of our lives. She’s not in the media as much as I am doing this show every single week and having fun during the NFL season on other guys’ shows like the (Pat) McAfee show and any other show I go on from here on out."

"I've enjoyed every second of it," Jason said.

"I'm enjoying life, and I sure as hell enjoyed this weekend, so everything moving forward, I think, me talking sports and saying all right now will have to be kind of where I keep it."
