Fans Think A 2009 Taylor Swift Interview Proves Travis Kelce Is Perfect For Her

"I'm calling this pure manifestation," one flabbergasted fan wrote on social media.

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce’s romance was written in the stars — or at least in Glamour magazine.

One observant fan spotted as much this week after flipping through a 2009 issue featuring Swift on the cover. In the Glamour article, the singer-songwriter described her ideal partner. Swifties were stunned when those words seemed to perfectly match the man she’s dating today.

“I think it’s more a question of confidence,” Swift, 19 at the time, told Glamour.

“I wouldn’t want to be with a pushover who would let me make all the plans and have all the control,” she continued. “It’s really natural for me to go into planning mode, but I’d rather be with someone who has his own voice and passion and ambition.”

Kelce, a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, is arguably the farthest thing from a pushover, since his job involves regularly blocking tackles for his quarterback. As for having his own voice ― well, Kelce does host a weekly podcast with his brother.

Swift also said in the Glamour interview that it can put strain on a romantic relationship when one person is a professional entertainer and the other isn’t. After “interviews all day” and being “on stage every night,” Swift told the magazine, she “can only give someone what’s left.”

“It’s always going to be long-distance, even if I date the boy who lives next door to me in Nashville,” she added. “I’ll be flying to see him and flying him places to see me. It feels like it would involve more scheduling, and I already deal with a lot of scheduling in my life.”

Swift told the outlet she “would probably stop thinking that way” if only she “met somebody who was worth it.” Fast forward to 2024, and the singer has not only flown out to Kansas City, New York and Boston to see Kelce play, but seen him return the favor.

What about that “question of confidence” Swift emphasized? Kelce arguably answered it months before they hard-launched their relationship in October. He not only tried to give her his number at an “Eras Tour” concert in July, but spoke about the attempt on his podcast.

“Travis very adorably put me on blast on his podcast, which I thought was metal as hell,” Swift recently told Time magazine, which named her its Person of the Year for 2023. “We started hanging out right after that. So we actually had a significant amount of time that no one knew, which I’m grateful for, because we got to know each other.”

Swifties are naturally overwhelmed at how prescient the singer’s old interview has proven.
