As co-owner of the Washington Commanders, an American football team, Magic Johnson is enjoying his newfound prominence in the NFL, particularly in light of Taylor Swift’s recent romantic relationship with Kansas City Chiefs tight end, Travis Kelce.
In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, the veteran basketball player said, “Exactly. Well, the NFL is very happy about that whole situation” concerning the relationship between Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce.
Travis Kelce’s ongoing relationship with the award-winning singer started in July when he tried to hand her a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it during her Eras tour stop in Kansas City.
He then invited her to a football game, which she accepted on September 24, when the Anti-Hero hitmaker shocked American football fans and Swifties alike when she spent the day cheering on the Kansas City Chiefs from Kelce’s suite alongside his mom, Donna, as the team played the Chicago Bears.
Since then, Swift has attended several games to support Kelce, which has helped the NFL’s bottom line.
It can be recalled that Taylor Swift, recently expressed her gratitude to her fans for making her album a success. Swift recently released her re-recorded album, 1989 (Taylor’s Version), and in all her social media activity since the release, has been to thank everyone who made “her wildest dreams come true”.
She began by thanking rapper and singer Kendrick Lamar for re-recording his Bad Blood remix verse, and then she thanked her “precocious young son”, Jack Antonoff, for their first collaboration.
Reports indicate that Taylor Swift’s 1989 (Taylor’s Version) sold over 1.1 million copies in the U.S. in its first six days of release (Oct. 27–Nov. 1).
Out of that total, $580,000 comes from vinyl purchases, making it the biggest week for vinyl record sales since Luminate started keeping track of sales back in 1991. Swift smashes her own record for contemporary vinyl sales, which was achieved by the release of Midnights in its first week of sales (ending Oct. 27, 2022).
