Let’s Talk About Love, Celebrity-Style!

Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody!

Reader here, and I hope you’re all enjoying the day, whether you have someone special to share the day with, or if you’re a single fella like me, and get to show yourself some love.

Speaking of love and romance, I got thinking today about the ridiculous overreaction to the whole Taylor Swift-Travis Kelce relationship.

So many people are way too upset about the amount of coverage the happy couple have been getting, but with the world being what it is today, why don’t we try something radically different… Instead of complaining, why don’t we, I don’t know, be happy for them?

Yes, Taylor Swift happens to be one of, if not THE biggest star on the planet, and Travis Kelce just won his third Super Bowl ring, and will go down as perhaps the best NFL tight end of all time. But just because they’re high-profile people, should they not have a chance to find love and be happy?

Just remember – they happen to be who they are, but they’re not the 24-hour news cycle that’s breathlessly reporting on anything and everything to do with them. They don’t ask for the attention – they know it comes with the territory, and took a chance anyway. And good on ’em!

The funny thing is, it’s not like they’re the first ever athlete-celebrity couple.

Remember when Jennifer Lopez and Major League slugger Alex Rodriguez were engaged for a time?

Or how about supermodel Giselle Bundchen and the NFL’s GOAT (for now, until Patrick Mahomes takes his crown), Tom Brady. They were married for 13 years and had two kids together, before their marriage ended.

Shakira and soccer superstar Gerard Pique were an item for 11 years before splitting up.

Former tennis star Anna Kournikova and singer Enrique Iglesias have been together since 2001, and have three kids.

Even the hockey world has seen this phenomenon, as former NHLer Mike Fisher has been married to country superstar Carrie Underwood since 2010, and they have two boys together.

And, of course, let’s not forget the original super couple that brought the worlds of sports and Hollywood together…

Can you imagine what the coverage would’ve been if Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio had gotten together in the present day, rather than 70 years ago, when they were married for nine months in 1954?

It would’ve been wall to wall “Mari-Joe” all the time, and folks would’ve been griping about how much we had to hear about them, just like Taylor and Travis.

I guess, all I’m saying is let them be. As long as they’re happy, nothing else matters.

And if you’re getting worked up because you see too much of them? Well, there are far bigger things to worry about in this world. Romance shouldn’t be one of them!

Frankly, as the late, great Burt Bacharach once sang…

So, Happy Valentine’s Day to you (and to Taylor and Travis!)

Let’s do it… Let’s fall in love!!!
