In August, Swift was said to have given $100,000 bonus checks along with a handwritten letter to each of her 50 bus drivers on the Eras Tour. People Magazine reported that the 34-year-old also gave bonuses to to everyone working on her show from her dancers to riggers, sound technicians and caterers, among others. The payout totaled more than $55 million. She’s also said to have been quietly making financial contributions to food banks in cities along the Eras Tour route.
“They said they wanted to make a gift to help the areas that they were performing in,” Michelle Beck, chief development officer of Three Square Food Bank in Southern Nevada told TODAY. “For us, that was a pretty amazing day.”
Isn’t that the kind of thing we should be talking about?
Following the Kansas City Chief’s Jan. 28 win against the Baltimore Ravens, Swift was seen on the field hugging her boyfriend and ecstatic over the team’s win. During that game, Kelce broke the NFL record for career postseason receptions. Swift was shown on screen for 32 seconds of a three hour and forty-three minute broadcast. Dads, Brads, and Chads across the internet had things to say.
It’s important to emphasize that what our daughters are hearing from the loud minority is, “be less.”
The Kansas City Chiefs are set to play the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday’s Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas. Swift is believed to be in attendance with millions all but tracking her flight from Tokyo, Japan to the big game. Her first concert back on the Eras Tour is Saturday night in Tokyo.
Whether you listen to Taylor Swift or not, People says in a follow up video is not the point. “Young boys are going to hear how you address these women celebrities and they’re going to say, ‘Oh, my dad is doing it … that’s how I should go about my business.”

Swift’s appearances at Kansas City Chiefs games are a display of two wildly successful role models showing up for one another. And THAT is what our kids need to see us championing.
