Taylor Swift’s fans have noticed a change in the pop star’s performances during her Eras Tour—and many are speculating that may have been influenced by her romance with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.
In a recent interview with Time, Swift revealed she first started dating Kelce in July after he attended one of her concerts then spoke about it on his podcast with his brother and Philadelphia Eagles player, Jason Kelce.
“This all started when Travis very adorably put me on blast on his podcast, which I thought was metal as hell,” she said. “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 get to know each other.”
The couple made their first public appearance in September when she attended a Chiefs game alongside her new beau’s mom, Donna Kelce, who has proven to be a passionate Swiftie in her own right.
“By the time I went to that first game, we were a couple. I think some people think that they saw our first date at that game?” Swift told the publication. “We would never be psychotic enough to hard launch a first date.”
With that information in mind, some of Swift’s eagle-eyed fans questioned if the romance coincided with the singer-songwriter no longer touching the bare chest of one of her muscle-bound dancers while performing her hit “Lavender Haze.”
In previous performances, Swift has been seen briefly placing her hand on the dancer’s chest while singing the lyrics, “Get it off your chest / Get it off my desk.”
However, a GIF was shared on social media that showed Swift merely motioning over her dancer’s torso without actually touching it. Swift’s Eras Tour movie was made available for streaming on Wednesday, the same day the star turned 34.
