  • A Philadelphia radio station has banned Taylor Swift's songs ahead of the Chiefs vs. Eagles game.

  • That's presumably due to her relationship with Travis Kelce, a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • Swift is a Pennsylvania native and has previously expressed support for the Eagles.

A radio station in Philadelphia has banned Taylor Swift's music from its airwaves this weekend ahead of Monday's Philadelphia Eagles vs. Kansas City Chiefs NFL game.

Q102, a local radio station, said that it will be doing its part to support the home team by temporarily shunning Swift's chart-topping hits in the run-up to the game, presumably because of Swift's relationship with Travis Kelce, a tight end for the Chiefs.

"Q102 is punting Taylor Swift from the radio station for the entire weekend because while Q102 loves Taylor Swift, we can't get enough of her, this weekend it's really important we show our support for the Birds," Nugget, a host at Q102, told CBS News Philadelphia.

According to the outlet, the station will start playing Swift's music again on Tuesday.

There was previously speculation that Swift would be attending the game, which will be at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

She has proven to be something of a good-luck charm for Kelce and the Chiefs: The team has won every game that Swift has attended so far, and the NFL has playfully pointed out Kelce's improved on-field performance when she's there.

But Swift will be onstage in Rio de Janeiro for a rescheduled Eras Tour concert date on Monday evening. The "Anti-Hero" singer was scheduled to perform the show on Saturday evening but postponed it amid extreme temperatures and following the death of a fan the night before.

Swift will miss out on the chance to possibly introduce her parents to Kelce's parents, Donna and Ed Kelce, because Andrea and Scott Swift — who are longtime Eagles fans — are said to be attending the game, Entertainment Tonight reported.

Kelce will be playing against his older brother, Jason Kelce, for the first time since his team beat the Eagles at the 2023 Super Bowl.

Despite showing her support for the Chiefs in recent months, Swift, who grew up in Pennsylvania, previously described herself as something of an Eagles fan. After the release of her 2020 album "Evermore," which featured a reference to an "Eagles T-shirt" on the song "Gold Rush," fans began to speculate whether she meant the band of the same name or the football team.

She put the debate to bed when her Eras Tour made a stop in Philadelphia in May, telling the crowd: "I saw some people wondering if it was the band the Eagles or the team the Eagles. Guys, like, come on, like, I'm from Philly, of course it's the team."
