Kelly Clarkson says she never bashed Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift's romance.

Kelly Clarkson says that she never intended to disrespect Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift when she spoke about their relationship on her daytime talk show. She had been complaining about every NFL broadcast featuring the Kansas City Chiefs focusing on the couple's relationship. Clarkson clarified her comments during a statement on Instagram, on Saturday.

“Just a quick public service announcement everybody since this seems to be breaking news… Do not fall prey to clickbait, trash reporters twisting the facts again. I did not bash anyone’s romance,” Clarkson wrote on Instagram. “I am pro romance. Yay romance Did y’all even watch what I actually said on my show? I just said I want to watch football when I tune in to watch football. Seems an appropriate request. Okay, carry on, and GO COWBOYS!”

The NFL has been facing scrutiny for the constant coverage of Swift and Kelce for weeks. The league even addressed the backlash with a statement of its own. They wrote: “We frequently change our bios and profile imagery based on what’s happening in and around our games, as well as culturally. The Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce news has been a pop cultural moment we’ve leaned into in real-time, as it’s an intersection of sport and entertainment, and we’ve seen an incredible amount of positivity around the sport.”
