Another day, another Taylor Swift media circus: talk of the pop phenomenon is omnipresent, from her forthcoming concert film to her dating life to her wildly successful global tour. And as the 33-year-old’s power grows all-consuming, renewed discussion of her potential political weight has followed.
Swift is taking a break from playing sold-out arenas before heading back on the road for the remainder of her Eras Tour, which is poised to become the first tour to make USD 1 billion. But she’s still gracing stadiums, as she cheers on her rumored beau Travis Kelce, a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs.
The presence of Swift — who got her start in country before becoming one of pop’s most dominant forces — at two of his games saw television ratings spike and sales of the NFL player’s jersey soar 400 per cent.
With hundreds of millions of social media followers and a staunchly loyal fan base, she can move any dial with the tiniest of efforts: late last month, Swift encouraged her fans to register to vote, directing them to the nonpartisan nonprofit Vote.org. Source: AFP New York
