Donna Kelce lauds Taylor Swift’s album, The Tortured Poets Department!


The Tortured Poets Department (TTPD), formerly associated with Joe’s WhatsApp group titled ‘The Tortured Man Club,’ has sparked intrigue as fans decipher the inspiration behind its eponymous title track. While initial speculation linked the song to Joe, closer examination reveals subtle nods to Matty, a figure with whom Taylor Swift shares a significant connection. Matty, known for his affinity for typewriters as disclosed in a 2019 interview with GQ, finds mention in the track’s opening lyrics, “You left your typewriter at my apartment.”

Donna Kelce, mother of football star Travis Kelce, has emerged as a vocal admirer of Taylor Swift’s latest musical endeavor, The Tortured Poets Department. Speaking at the Age of Possibility summit in Las Vegas, Donna effusively praised the album, divulging her penchant for listening to its entirety upon its release. The album, dropped on April 19, comprises 16 songs alongside an additional 15 tracks as part of an unexpected ‘double album’ surprise. Donna lauded Swift’s talent, deeming the album among her finest works.

Speculation abounds regarding Swift’s personal life, particularly her rumored romantic involvement with Travis Kelce, potentially referenced in tracks like ‘The Alchemy’ and ‘So High School’ on The Tortured Poets. With the album amassing over a billion streams within a week of its release, it has shattered records, including Spotify’s most-streamed album in a week.


Describing The Tortured Poets as “an anthology of new works reflecting experiences, opinions, and sentiments from a fleeting and fatalistic moment in time,” Swift delves into the intricacies of her relationships, past and present. From poignant reflections on her bond with Matty to introspective musings on love and fame, each track unveils layers of Swift’s emotional landscape.

In a revealing commentary for Amazon Music, Swift characterizes the album as “pretty fatalistic,” marked by hyperbolic expressions of love and existential ponderings. Throughout its 31 tracks, Swift navigates the complexities of her personal and professional life, delving into themes of love, fame, and self-discovery with trademark introspection and vulnerability. From revisiting past relationships to grappling with the pressures of celebrity, The Tortured Poets Department emerges as a testament to Swift’s evolution as both an artist and a storyteller.
