Taylor Swift had Travis Kelce on the brain during the second Eras Tour concert in Argentina.
If Swifties thought the biggest reference to the Kansas City Chiefs player — who was watching from the VIP tent — would just come during the surprise song section of the setlist, they were mistaken. Of course, the 33-year-old pop star did end up singing End Game on 11 November, so someone in the universe owes me $50.
Although, I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who predicted she would sing this song during her acoustic set. With lyrics like “I wanna be your first string, I wanna be your A-team,” and “Ooh, you and me, we’d be a big conversation,” the song itself feels like a premonition. You can watch that performance here.
As fun as that moment was, the real surprise came during the final portion of the evening, in the middle of a little song called Karma. The Midnights song seems to reference Swift’s ex, 32-year-old actor Joe Alwyn, with the line, “Karma is the guy on the screen running straight home to me.” The pop star dated the actor for six years before the couple split in April. According to a source speaking with People at the time, Alwyn “struggled” with Swift’s level of fame. You know who doesn’t seem to have that problem? The 34-year-old NFL player with two Super Bowl rings to his name.
Perhaps that’s why Swift switched the lyric to “Karma is the guy on the Chiefs running straight home to me.”
