Shooting your shot and getting turned down isn't just for us normies, as even celebrities can get rejected every once in a while - just ask NFL star, Travis Kelce.

Travis Kelce, the Kansas City Chiefs player attempted to get this pop sensation to accept his number and it hilariously flopped. Ahem.

If anyone is trying it with Taylor Swift, you’ve got to have buckets of confidence, and even more pride to deal with the humiliation when it doesn’t quite work out as planned.

So, when this Super Bowl champion admitted to failing at getting T-Swift to take his digits at her recent concert, he really meant it.

Because honestly- who would willingly share that?

After hashing out his plan of action to shoot his shot at the world-famous singer during her Eras tour night at Arrowhead Stadium, the NFL star went on to detail everything that went on during his 'New Heights' podcast this week.

Kelce admitted that he made friendship bracelets with his phone number on them in a bid to give one of them to the ‘Bad Blood’ singer, who is newly single after her recent split from The 1975’s lead man, Matty Healy.

Kelce explained that he found out that Swift doesn't meet with people before going on stage and that it was something that disappointed him, especially because he wouldn’t be able to bestow upon her his number.

He said: "I was disappointed that she doesn't talk before or after her shows because she has to save her voice for the 44 songs that she sings, so I was a little butthurt I didn't get to hand her one of the bracelets I made for her.”

Explaining why to his brother, Jason, he stated: "She doesn't meet anybody -- or at least she didn't want to meet me, so I took it personal."

His brother found it hilarious that Kelce was so hurt, and laughed at him, saying that it was because the singer was a fan of the Eagles instead and held a grudge over the Chiefs winning their Super Bowl match.

But Kelce took it all in good fun in the end, expressing how awestruck he was to see how many people attended the concert.

"I've only seen Arrowhead filled like that for Chiefs games with that much excitement, and everybody was dressed in pink and purple going crazy for her. It was wild. It was a wild show,” he admitted.

So, maybe he didn’t get the girl, but at least he got to see our girl perform!
