Taylor Swift Arrives at Super Bowl

The pop singer had to travel across the globe (and through time, in a sense) to make the game. How did she get there? That and answers to other Taylor-related questions.

The Kansas City Chiefs are making the team’s fourth Super Bowl appearance in the last five seasons. While some N.F.L. players go their entire career without playing for a championship, one of Kansas City’s newcomers had their ticket punched after only 12 games.

As Nicole Auerbach of The Athletic said on X, shortly after the Chiefs’ championship win: “Taylor Swift makes the Super Bowl in her first year in the league. Elite.”

Ms. Swift, who has been dating Travis Kelce, Kansas City’s star tight end, has changed the N.F.L. conversation all season, attracting a new audience for the league and inspiring strong emotions (both positive and negative) among fans. Her critics as well as her detractors may have some burning questions ahead of the game. First and foremost, they wondered if she would be there.

As expected, she is at the stadium and cheering on Mr. Kelce and the Chiefs. While Kansas City did not have many highlights in the first half, trailing San Francisco, 10-3, a video of Ms. Swift shown at Allegiant Stadium chugging her drink and slamming her cup down played well on social media.

Ms. Swift, as you may have heard, is good at keeping secrets. Her plans, beyond concert dates, are rarely announced in advance. That has led some to devise their own methods for figuring out what she’s up to. Ahead of a Kansas City game in October, for example, an NBC producer said he had a spotter plane searching the area around MetLife Stadium for police escorts in hopes of alerting the television crew if she showed up (she did).
