Taylor Swift is having a busy week, to say the least. The pop star, who won four Grammys on Sunday, is currently in Tokyo for the Eras Tour, and is expected to fly back to the US to support her boyfriend Travis Kelce at the Super Bowl on Sunday. Here is what you need to know about Swift’s hectic schedule and how she is managing it.
Swift’s Grammys triumph: Four awards and a record-breaking win
Swift started her week on a high note, as she attended the 66th Grammy Awards on Sunday, where she was nominated for seven awards. She won four of them, including album of the year for “Midnights”, her ninth studio album. She also won best pop vocal album, best pop solo performance for “Cardigan”, and best song written for visual media for “Beautiful Ghosts” from the movie “Cats”.
Swift made history by becoming the first woman to win album of the year three times, following her previous wins for “Fearless” in 2010 and “1989” in 2016. She also became the fourth artist to achieve this feat, after Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon, and Stevie Wonder. She thanked her fans, her collaborators, and her boyfriend in her acceptance speech, and said that she was proud of the album, which she made during the pandemic.
Swift’s Eras Tour: Four sold-out shows in Tokyo
Swift did not have much time to celebrate her Grammys victory, as she flew to Tokyo on Wednesday for the international leg of her Eras Tour, which kicked off in September 2023. The tour features songs from all her nine albums, divided into six eras: Debut, Fearless, Red, 1989, Reputation, and Midnights. The tour also showcases Swift’s evolution as an artist, from country to pop to indie folk.
Swift is performing four sold-out shows at the Tokyo Dome, which has a capacity of 55,000 people. She performed her first show on Wednesday, and received a warm welcome from her Japanese fans, who sang along to her hits and cheered for her. Swift expressed her gratitude to her fans on Instagram, and said that she was happy to be back in Japan after four years.
Swift’s Super Bowl plan: Supporting her boyfriend Travis Kelce
Swift’s last show in Tokyo is on Saturday, which means that she will have to fly back to the US on Sunday, just in time for the Super Bowl, where her boyfriend Travis Kelce and his team, the Kansas City Chiefs, will face the San Francisco 49ers at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Kelce, who is a tight end for the Chiefs, has been dating Swift since July 2023, and the couple has been spotted together at various events, including the Grammys.
Swift has not confirmed whether she will attend the Super Bowl, but many fans and media outlets are speculating that she will. Even the Embassy of Japan in the US has weighed in on the matter, and assured the fans that Swift can make it to the Super Bowl from Tokyo. The embassy posted a statement on X, formerly known as Twitter, filled with references to Swift’s albums, and said that they are rooting for her and the Chiefs.
