Taylor Swift knew someone like Travis Kelce would be hers to love and behold more than a decade ago.
In a resurfaced 2009 interview with Glamour, the 12-time Grammy winner described her ideal man as being someone very similar to the Kansas City Chiefs star.
“It’s more a question of confidence,” she replied when asked whether needs to date a guy at her level of success.
“I wouldn’t want to be with a pushover who would let me make all the plans and have all the control.”
Taylor who at the time had only released her first two albums — added, “It’s really natural for me to go into planning mode, but I’d rather be with someone who has his own voice and passion and ambition.”
Swift also envisioned herself in a long-distance relationship where she would be “flying to see him and flying him places to see [her].”
At the time, a 19-year-old Swift said she needed to be with someone who had “confidence” and wasn’t a “pushover.”
“It feels like it would involve more scheduling, and I already deal with a lot of scheduling in my life,” she explained.
“Of course, if I met somebody who was worth it, I would probably stop thinking that way!”
Since going public with their romance, Swift and Kelce, both 34, have spent time travelling between Missouri — where he lives in a new $6 million mansion bought for extra privacy — and New York City where the pop star resides.
The music superstar has also flown to support her NFL boyfriend at several away games, including in Massachusetts against the New England Patriots and in Wisconsin against the Green Bay Packers.
Also, Travis famously flew to watch her perform at her second sold-out Eras Tour show in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in November 2023.
