Not everyone is a fan of the synergy between football and Taylor Swift, and Kaley Cuoco is one of those who have been affected by the Swift-Kelce romance. While Travis Kelce initially vowed to keep his relationship with Taylor Swift private, it has garnered considerable attention.
Speaking to E! News, Kaley Cuoco, known for her role in The Big Bang Theory, shared how Swift’s involvement with Kelce has changed football culture in her household. Despite being a classic football house—Cuoco supports the Rams, and her partner is a Giants fan—the focus has shifted to Taylor Swift during NFL games.
She added, “Listen, this is a football house, OK? This is a classic football house. I’m Rams, my partner is Giants. But now it’s all about…I’m like, ‘Is Taylor at the game? Are we watching the Chiefs game? Is Taylor there? What’s she wearing?’” via Parade.com.
Cuoco’s newfound Swiftie status has annoyed her boyfriend, Tom Pelphrey, who feels the attention should be on the game rather than Swift. Cuoco, however, is thoroughly enjoying the shift in focus.
“However, Tom isn’t as thrilled that Taylor is getting so much attention when compared to the game. “He’s like, ‘Oh my God. This is supposed to be about football!” she continued.”
It’s noteworthy that not every celebrity is willing to openly express displeasure about Swift and Kelce’s influence on football. Kaley Cuoco’s remarks add to a growing trend of celebrities discussing the impact of Taylor Swift’s presence at NFL games, with Kelly Clarkson facing backlash for expressing similar sentiments.
Despite the mixed reactions, Taylor Swift’s appearances at Travis Kelce’s games seem to bring good luck, as the Chiefs remain undefeated when she’s in attendance. The NFL continues to navigate through its “Taylor Swift era.”
