As the Super Bowl draws near, excitement keeps on growing. Not only the field is going to be star-studded, but the gallery as well, as multiple high-profile celebrities are expected to attend this spectacular event.
Chiefs TE Travis Kelce’s girlfriend, Taylor Swift, despite having a busy schedule, is expected to be present to support her boyfriend. However, a surprising twist unfolds as Lisa McCaffrey, mother of San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey, makes a bold claim about Taylor Swift and her music.
Christian McCaffery’s mom reveals why Taylor Swift being boycotted
Christian McCaffrey’s mother has decided to boycott Taylor Swift and her music in the lead-up to the Super Bowl.
“I refuse to listen to Taylor Swift songs for the next couple days. I love her, I love the relationship, but we are boycotting any T. Swift songs,” Lisa McCaffrey said.
The decision is influenced by Taylor Swift’s relationship with Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce, who will be playing against Lisa’s son, Christian McCaffrey. Lisa explicitly stated her commitment to not listening to any Taylor Swift songs for the next few days and declared she was dead for her.
“If she pops up on the radio station… nope. She’s dead to us this week.”
Despite being a fan of Swift with her music on her running playlist, Christian McCaffrey’s mother will temporarily set aside her musical preferences to support her son’s team, the 49ers, in the Super Bowl.
She also shared that she faced a predicament in securing eight tickets together for the Super Bowl, wanting everyone to be together. However, she found the tickets outrageously expensive.
“They’re stupid expensive as I don’t know if it’s the Taylor Swift factor. If it’s the first time in Vegas factor. There’s so much going on.”
Lisa will be watching the Super Bowl from a suite, a generous gesture from Christian McCaffrey’s fiancée, Olivia Culpo, who purchased the suite for the occasion and gifted it to Lisa.
