|A football game broke out at a Taylor Swift appearance.
Sunday nights during the NFL season are typically reserved for marquee matchups, but this time around the biggest star in attendance didn’t step foot on the field.
Swift was at MetLife Stadium, with actors Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds in tow, to support Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs as they took on the New York Jets in the newest development in their situationship.
Before the game even started, the announcers acknowledged Swift’s presence.
“Oh, and yea, she’s here,” NBC’s Mike Tirico said at the start of the game’s broadcast.
The Chiefs ended up nabbing a closer-than-expected 23-20 win, but Swift seemed to be the real winner, securing plenty of screentime.
Swift’s NFL takeover is the latest conquest in what has already been an impressive run for the artist. Her Eras Tours has injected billions of dollars into the US economy, prompting the Fed to give her a shoutout.
Meanwhile, a film documenting her tour seems likely to be a box-office hit when released later this month, giving Hollywood a much-needed boost.
Simply put, Swift has become one of the most influential players in the US economy.
