Jason Kelce is singing his praise for Taylor Swift!

In an interview with WCPO 9 that was shared on X (formerly known as Twitter) on Friday, the Philadelphia Eagles center discussed the attention that has followed the “Blank Space” singer, 34, by the NFL, as she dates 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, 36, said.

“She's a world star, she's the quintessential, you know, artist right now in the world,” he continued, then describing the “singer-songwriter” as “immensely talented," as well as an “unbelievable role model for young women across the globe."

“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 added.

Jason's latest comments aren’t the first time this week that he has celebrated the pop superstar.

He previously called Swift the “newest member“ of the Kansas City Chiefs fan club during this week’s episode of the New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce podcast.

“Shout out to the newest members of the Chiefs Kingdom,” Jason said in the Wednesday episode, before he joked, “Taylor Swift, who has officially reached the Super Bowl in her rookie year."

“Shout out to Tay!” Travis, 34, then responded with a laugh, adding. “Thanks for joining the team!”

“You keep your shirt on this time?” Travis joked to his brother — referencing Jason's shirtless antics at the Chiefs game against the Buffalo Bills on Jan. 21. “I did ... for right now. We’ll see how it goes," Jason responded.

The father of three then choked up as he congratulated his younger brother on the Chiefs’ 17-10 victory over the Ravens, which allows him to return to the Super Bowl for a second consecutive year.

“I know it wasn't easy. I know it was a hard year,” Jason said. “Finish it. Finish this motherf—er!”
