Taylor Swift is a woman of many talents, passions, and hobbies. She sings, dances, writes—as you may have seen. She directed a short film! She acted in Cats, a long film! She is a known lover of cats (the animal). She takes the whole multi-hyphenate thing to a level where one wonders whether there’s a limit to the number of hyphens available in the world, and if we should be concerned about the punctuation supply chain holding up to demand. Keep wondering, because we’re gonna need another hyphen to laud Swift’s skills as Chronicler Of Travis Kelce’s Haircut.
Yes, Swift proved that she can Instagram Girlfriend with the best of ‘em, if a carousel shared by celebrity barber Patrick Regan Monday is anything to go by.
“Thanks @taylorswift for the Pics of the Gameday Freshy for @killatrav,” he wrote in the caption alongside photos of himself pampering Kelce with such attention to detail that Regan is literally wearing a headlamp. Someone must tackle the man’s hair, and as football fans know, tackling is not among the duties of a tight end like Kelce.
And, as fans noted, the filter on the first pic looks awfully familiar. That soft lighting? It’s a Swift signature.
Regan also shared photos of himself enjoying Sunday’s game up in the box with Taylor, some shots of Kelce displaying his freshly-groomed mug, a video of Kelce driving into the game and waving at fans shot from a passenger seat perspective (Taylor, is that you?), and, oh, to casually close it out, a blurry but absolutely internet-shattering photo of Swift kissing a smiling Kelce on the cheek in front of glowy Christmas lights.
Klimt could never. It belongs in a museum! The Kiss (2023). Alert the National Gallery. Inform the historians. Summon the curators.
Swift and Kelce have been linked since at least September, though in a recent interview Swift revealed that they’ve been in touch since July, when “Travis very adorably put me on blast on his podcast, which I thought was metal as hell.”
Representatives for Swift and Kelce did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
