Did Taylor Swift Cut a Lyric From Her Latest Surprise Song Because of Travis Kelce?


Taylor Swift's Eras Tour surprise songs are always a big conversation on TikTok—and her most recent mash-up was no exception.

During Swift's Eras Tour concert in Singapore on March 6, the 34-year-old pop star combined “Fifteen” from Fearless (2008) with “You're on Your Own, Kid” from Midnights (2022), two songs about melancholic yearning for young love, released 14 years apart. Swifties were freaking out about this mash-up for multiple reasons—the nostalgia of “Fifteen,” the friendship bracelet lyric in “YOYOK,” a potential math-based Easter egg that doesn't make much sense to me—but at least one fan noticed something missing.

As user @Audrey_Ratjack pointed out, Swift omitted the “Fifteen” lyric, “In your life you'll do things greater than dating the boy on the football team / I didn't know it at fifteen.”

“Take that information as you will,” the user wrote. Of course, the insinuation here is that Swift left out the lyric because she's currently dating three-time Super Bowl–winning NFL player Travis Kelce.

To be fair, some lyrics are bound to get cut when mashing up two songs, so this may have been a practical choice more than anything else. Still, this is the same artist who changed those “Karma” lyrics from “guy on the screen” to “guy on the Chiefs” during the Midnights portion of the set list. Plus, she knows that her fans enjoy reading into her surprise songs lyrics and may not have wanted the football lyric interpreted as a dig toward Kelce. Honestly, it could go either way.

Of course, whether she sings that lyric or not, Swift has done way greater things in life than date the guy on the football team—just ask Travis Kelce. During the latest episode of his podcast, New Heights, the 34-year-old athlete spoke to his brother about all those Australian-zoo date photos, revealing that they were not taken by drones like Jason Kelce suggested.

“There were full-on helicopters just flying around,” Kelce said. “They helicoptered us! Well, not us—Taylor. This is all because Taylor is the biggest and the best thing possible.” And don't you forget it!
