NFL player Jason Kelce voiced admiration for the multi-talented pop sensation Taylor Swift, referring to her as "immensely talented" and an "unbelievable role model for young women."
During an interview with WCPO 9, which was posted on X (former Twitter) on Friday, the centre for the Philadelphia Eagles delved into the scrutiny faced by the Lover singer in connection with her relationship with Jason's younger brother, Travis Kelce.
“The attention's there because the audience wants to see it, I mean, if people didn't want to see it they wouldn't be showing it, I know that,” Jason said.
“She's a world star, she's the quintessential, you know, artist right now in the world,” he went on to characterize the "singer-songwriter" as “immensely talented," and serving as an “unbelievable role model for young women across the globe."
Jason continued, “I think that the NFL would probably be foolish not to, you know, show her and ... be a role model for all the young girls out there."
Jason's recent remarks mark another instance this week where he has expressed admiration for the pop sensation. In a prior episode of the New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce podcast, he affectionately referred to Swift as the "latest addition" to the Kansas City Chiefs fan club.
It is pertinent to mention that after the Chiefs' triumph in the AFC Championship on Sunday, the Kelce family and Swift were seen in celebration.
After Travis' team's victory over the Buffalo Bills, earning them a place in the Super Bowl on February 11, he was photographed sharing a kiss with Swift on the field.
Following this heartfelt moment, the tight end also located his brother, and the two exchanged numerous warm embraces and handshakes.
