The Patriots are making it clear they are not fans of Taylor Swift ahead of their game against Travis Kelce and the Chiefs on Sunday.
The popstar has become a regular at Kansas City games in the past few months as her relationship with tight end Kelce has dominated the headlines.
She could be in attendance in Foxborough on Sunday when the Chiefs look to get back to winning ways against the struggling Patriots.
But, just a day after coach Bill Belichick dismissed questions about the pop star on a radio show, quarterback Bailey Zappe has admitted he’s not a fan of Swift’s music.
During a radio appearance, he said: ‘No ma’am. No ma’am. This is not a shot at Taylor Swift.

‘I’m not not a fan, I just don’t listen to that music.
‘Is she Country? I’m a Country guy. So that’s probably why since she transferred over to pop.
‘I know some of her old songs whenever she was in Country. I mean…I don’t dislike her.’
On Monday, Belichick was equally dismissive when asked about the prospect of meeting Swift on Sunday.
During a radio appearance on WEEI’s ‘The Greg Hill Show’, Belichick was first asked whether or not he would be meeting the 12-time Grammy winner.
He replied: ‘I’m really focused on trying to get our team ready to play Kansas City.’
Then, later on, he was asked by co-host Courtney Cox whether or not she could get a spare ticket in the hope she would meet Swift.
Belichick, unenthusiastically, replied: ‘I’ll pass that along to our ticket department… I don’t really know anything about tickets.’

He was previously happy to discuss Kelce and Swift’s relationship after her first outing at a Chiefs game, however.
The eight-time Super Bowl winner said: ‘Well, I would say that Travis Kelce has had a lot of big catches in his career. This would be the biggest.’
He also called her ‘tough’ after the 71-year-old saw her perform in torrential rain during an Eras Tour show in Foxborough earlier this year.
Sunday’s loss to the Bills was the sixth Chiefs game Swift has been at this season and probably the most controversial.
She watched on as Kelce tossed a lateral pass to Kadarius Toney deep into the fourth quarter, allowing him to run into the end zone.
However, the play was called back by the officials for an offside against the receiver and the Chiefs went on to lose.
