Taylor Swift fans think Travis Kelce’s shirt is a ‘Tortured Poets Department’ Easter egg

What if we told you he’s a mastermind?

While all eyes were on Jason Kelce yesterday as the 36-year-old Philadelphia Eagles center announced his retirement from football, Travis Kelce, 34, supported his brother in the audience while paying subtle tribute to his pop star girlfriend.

Although his gray, beige, black, and white collared shirt seemed to be in line with his usual sleek style, Taylor Swift fans took to social media to share theories that the Kansas City Chiefs player was secretly rocking multiple Easter eggs.

“he is wearing ttpd color palette omfg,” one Twitter user wrote, posting a snap of the Kansas City Chiefs tight end alongside screenshots from Swift’s upcoming album, “The Tortured Poets Department.”

“Ummm what? Travis Kelce is seriously wearing a straight up TTPD shirt! Even at his bros retirement announcement he is supporting Taylor!,” another said.

Indeed, the specific shades of his Song for the Mute colorblock shirt seemed to match the aesthetic of her album, which she announced at February’s Grammy awards and releases on April 19.

But that wasn’t the only nod the tight end gave to the “Bejewled” singer; as the younger Kelce brother dabbed his eyes during Jason’s speech, friendship bracelets featuring the phrase “T❤️T” could be seen on his wrist paired with additional gold jewelry.

It’s no surprise that Swift’s boyfriend continues to support the singer in subtle ways.

After she sported a season’s worth of red-colored and Chiefs-themed outfits while cheering Kelce on at his football games including the 2024 Super Bowl, the NFL pro traveled to Australia to watch Swift perform during the international leg of The Eras Tour.

Still, it wasn’t just Travis who gave the “Cruel Summer” singer a shoutout at the press conference. Jason also dropped a few song references during his speech.

“It’s only too poetic I found my career being fulfilled in the city of brotherly love, I knew that relationship all too well,” he said, giving a nod to Travis while quoting Swift’s song “All Too Well.”

Later on, he added that “If you go above and beyond in this city, you will be rewarded beyond your wildest dreams.”

Recently Travis shared that he had the chance to preview Swift’s “The Tortured Poets Department.”

“I have heard some of it, yes. And it is unbelievable,” he told reporters ahead of the Super Bowl back in February.

“I can’t wait for her to shake up the world when it finally drops.”
