On Friday Taylor Swift was seen in New York with her girlfriends – Selena Gomez, Zoë Kravitz, Cara Delevingne, and a new face to the squad, Anya Taylor Joy. Apparently they went to see Ramy Youssef perform in Brooklyn before heading out for drinks.
Sunday, however, Taylor was in Kansas City to watch Travis Kelce and his team play the Buffalo Bills. And it was another loss – so that’s two straight, with some controversy as Travis had a solid game and attempted a beauty of a play but the refs called it off and Patrick Mahomes was pisssssed at the end. I only know this from social media.
The consolation prize for gossip, though, was literally the consolation. A new photo of Taylor and Travis holding hands leaving the game gives us a new episode of our favourite rom-com:

Is there anyone Chinese in their lives, though? Because someone needs to tell Travis that the green hat is bad luck. For our rom-com purposes, we definitely don’t need to see our leading man wearing the sign of the cuckold.
Still, it’s a cute shot, in addition to what she wore to the game:

As they say, love exists through the highs and lows. And the whole point of being an athlete, and a performer, really, is to bounce back after the lows.
For those of us who are watching this for the show and not the score, Wednesday might be the bounceback, because it’s her birthday. And… well… a birthday is a great time to go Instagram Official. Wednesday also happens to be when new episodes of Travis’s podcast, New Heights, are posted. So, perhaps, we’ll get a mid-week special birthday episode of the rom-com in 48 hours.
Taylor’s already received an early birthday gift though. Just this morning she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for her The Eras Tour concert film in the new category of Best Cinematic and Box Office Achievement. LOLOLOLOL, did they make this category just for her?!
Other nominees include Barbenheimer, Guardians of the Galaxy V3, John Wick: Chapter 4, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, and Super Mario. It’s basically a popularity award, an obvious attempt at getting people to tune into see if the “big” movies that they’ve heard win awards. It’s blatant and it’s desperado – and this isn’t about Taylor but about the Golden Globes and other awards, frankly, in how thirsty they are to appeal to the masses. The Oscars tried this with their Twitter voting fan favourite movie a couple of years ago and that fell flat too. The people who love award shows (me!) are always going to love them. The people who only TikTok about them aren’t going to tune in for almost four hours just because you’re throwing a Barbie and Taylor Swift in their faces. More on the Golden Globe nominations later today.
