The Ice Spice and Taylor Swift Controversy Explained

Ice Spice went viral on Sunday after one observant fan snapped a photo of her looking perplexed during the 2024 Super Bowl, while pal Taylor Swift jumped up and down in delight.

In the photo, which was posted on X, the “Deli” singer is dressed in all black, with her hands entwined beneath her chin and gasping at something on the field.

The couple, who are watching the game from Travis Kelce’s VIP suite, were joined by Ashley Avignone and Blake Lively, who held hands with Swift during Post Malone’s performance of “America the Beautiful.”

However, the “Munch” rapper’s appearance at the game sparked viral memes, as she wore a puzzled expression for the majority of the time.

At one point, Swift’s friend Ashley Avignone appeared to Ice Spice (Isis Naija Gaston) and explained the game rules. The stylist was seen pointing toward the field from their VIP box while speaking into the rapper’s ear. Users on X, formerly Twitter, reposted the video and were amused by Ice Spice’s blank expressions.

“Ice does not know what is going on,” commented one user.

“I am Ice Spice, and I honestly have no idea what is going on,” a second fan laughed.

“I am telling my kids this was ‘Inside Out,'” a third person said, referring to the 2015 children’s film.

This was not Ice Spice’s only meme-worthy moment. Before the game, the “Deli” rapper was spotted in Allegiant Stadium’s box suite with Philadelphia Eagles player Jason Kelce. The father of three leaned forward and shook the rapper’s hand, resulting in viral memes based on their unlikely pairing.

During Super Bowl LVIII, the Kansas City Chiefs won their fourth title by defeating the San Francisco 49ers in overtime. Swift rushed to the field after the win and kissed Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

“Come here, girl,” Kelce said to his girlfriend before hugging her.

The couple, who have been dating since the summer of 2023, celebrated the Chiefs’ victory at a star-studded after-party in Las Vegas. Swift and Kelce were seen serenading each other to a remix of her hit song, “You Belong with Me.” The host of the New Heights podcast pointed at his girlfriend from the DJ booth, and Swift happily returned the gesture with a drink in hand.

Another video shows the couple kissing and dancing to a remix of Taylor Swift’s “Love Story.”

“Princess Diana” songstress Ice Spice also went viral when Swift introduced her to Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, who was there to support his younger brother, Travis.

“Jason Kelce getting introduced to Ice Spice was not on my 2024 bingo card,” one X user laughed.

The rapper’s Super Bowl LVIII appearance comes a mere week after she was nominated for four Grammy awards, including Best New Artist and Best Song Written for Visual Media.
