Kylie Kelce enjoyed an afternoon on the field with two of the women from Team USA’s field hockey team recently, and she took fans along for the outing!

Kelce, 31, posted a video on TikTok with Ashley Sessa and Kelee Lepage, whom she agreed to interview for a segment on NBC Philadelphia.

“I could not have said yes faster,” she said of when the network “reached out and asked” if she’d like to interview two of the Olympic-qualifying athletes for the USA field hockey team.

To start the post on TikTok, Kelce, a former collegiate field hockey player and high school coach, continued her running joke of “places Kylie has no business being,” which began when she attended the Alberta Ferretti show during Milan Fashion Week in February.

“Hey guys, we’re back with another edition of places Kylie has no business being, and today we’re on a field with women’s national field hockey players, Ashley and Kelee. I have no business out here,” she said.

Kelce told her viewers that Lepage and Sessa “just helped the US field hockey team qualify for this summer’s Olympics in Paris,” adding, “which is all the more reason why I have no business being here.”

The TikTok included clips of Kelce, Lepage and Sessa shooting and running drills on the indoor field. Kelce poked fun at her shots in comparison to the Olympic qualifiers, joking, “Here comes grandma shuffling along,” in a voiceover.

Over a clip of her taking a shot, Kelce wrote, “I’m a self-aware granny,” on the video.

“Before anyone tries to critique me, I know head down, chest down. I am rusty as anything out here playing with elite field hockey players, cut me some slack,” she said.
After she spent time with Sessa and Lepage, Kelce said the meeting “was such a cool experience” for her. “Such an honor to hang out and chat with Ashley and Kelee,” she said.

“I am so excited to cheer on Team USA when they head to the Olympics this summer, and stay tuned; this interview will be airing on NBC.”


In November, Kelce hosted a youth field hockey camp in Kansas City with the help of her mother-in-law, Donna Kelce.

Speaking with Spectrum Sports KC at the time, the mother of three explained how she hopes her camp will inspire the next generation of female athletes on and off of the field. “Sports teaches teamwork,” Kylie said, adding that playing for a team teaches kids to “come together to work towards a common goal.”

Kylie, who said she began playing field hockey when she was going into the second grade, added, “And all of those things are transferable skills to the rest of life, so what better time to start than as early as possible?”

Since discovering her passion for field hockey, Kylie said she “hasn’t had a Fall without” the sport, “between coaching or playing,” since 7th grade. “And I have no intentions of breaking that streak anytime soon,” she added.

Noᴛ onlʏ bᴇautiꜰul and rich, Tᴀylᴏʀ Swɪft’s way of hanᴅling crisis and inᴊustiᴄe is also a master lesson in ᴇmotɪonal iɴtelligᴇnce that everyone ᴄᴀn learn: Singᴇr-songwrɪter Taylor Swift brings to the audiᴇnce a poᴡᴇrful messagᴇ: Don’t fᴏcus oɴ ᴡhat yᴏu can’t change, focus ᴏn whᴀt you can.

Through her new album, singer-songwriter Taylor Swift brought the audience a strong message

Don’t focus on what you can’t change, focus on what you can.

Recently, the 31-year-old pop star made headlines when she released Fearless (Taylor’s Version).

This is a new recording of the super successful album that made her a star.

The project is the culmination of a years-long battle.

In it, Swift claims she was “stripped of her life’s work”, when her former record label Big Machine sold the master recordings of her first six albums to music executives and criminals. Swift’s nemesis – Scooter Braun.

“This process has been more fulfilling and emotional than I could have imagined and has made me even more determined to re-record all of my music,” Swift said in a statement posted on Twitter.


Swift’s new album isn’t just a business move, it’s also a signal to artists and professionals everywhere in the world about a major shift in the balance of power.

And at the heart of the story is a brilliant lesson in emotional intelligence.

Why did Taylor decide to re-record her old albums?

The answer is quite complicated. The New York Times wrote a great summary that may help you understand the story better.

The short version is as follows:

In 2019, music executive Braun acquired Big Machine Label Group. This is the music label that signed Swift to her first recording contract when she was a teenager and later acquired ownership of the master recordings of her first six albums.

Swift quickly publicly described the deal as her “worst case scenario,” as she recounted stories of Braun and his client Kanye West defrauding her for years.

However, Swift is not resigned. She soon hatched a plan to regain control of her music by re-recording the masters of her old albums – starting with Fearless. In doing so, Swift will now have new versions of the songs her fans love.

She then encouraged fans to stream or buy the new version instead of the old one.

But there is a more important part. Although Swift does not own the original copies of those early albums, she does have publishing or copyright rights to the songwriting (instrumentation and lyrics) of the songs – many of which she wrote herself.

This is important because as the publishing rights holder, Swift can veto the commercial use of her (original) songs. Such as in movies, TV shows, commercials and anything else – in effect and requires anyone who wants to license her music to use the new versions she owns.

In other words, by deciding to record new masters for old albums, Swift potentially devalues the original assets and takes artistic control.

But that’s not all. In addition to recording new versions of all the songs on the original Fearless album, Swift added six previously unreleased songs. Swift describes these as songs that she “absolutely loved, but was holding back for different reasons. Typical reasons like not wanting too many breakup songs, not wanting too many songs with a beat low pitch, it’s impossible to fit that many songs on a physical CD”.

“Artists should own their own work for many reasons, but the most obvious reason is that the artist is the only one who truly understands that work.”

Swift’s bold move has the potential to dramatically change the landscape of the music industry and beyond. On the other hand, if she succeeds, it could prompt record labels to try to amend their standard contracts. It may take some time before artists can re-record songs or other restrictions apply.

Besides, the world today is quite different from when Swift signed her first record contract. With the rise of YouTube and social media, it’s easier than ever for artists to gain a following and make money from their work.

By setting a new standard, Swift is sending a signal to artists across industries that they don’t need to give up control of their work to reach a large audience.

But there’s an even bigger lesson through Taylor Swift’s actions.

Besides, what does emotional intelligence have to do with this?

Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage emotions to achieve goals. Additionally, it is the ability to make emotions work for you, instead of against you.

An accomplished performer and musician, Swift has a gift: She can channel her emotions through music to touch the hearts of others on an emotional level.

But Swift’s talent goes beyond that: She’s built her career and a large fan base by combining her musical genius with her ability to remain authentic and relatable. .

Swifties don’t consider their idol untouchable but quite the opposite: They consider her their sister, their best friend, someone like them. And even now, after becoming a global superstar, Swift continues to solidify that image when she surprises fans with private parties or mailing out graduation cards.

With Fearless (Taylor’s Version), Swift is tapping into all of her emotional intelligence: Years of practice honing her ability to grasp her own emotions and the trust and love of fans when she taps into them. their contact.

By taking control of her music, Swift offers a great lesson for artists, entertainers, and entrepreneurs of all types. If you encounter a seemingly insurmountable problem, there are only two ways to handle it.

You can:

• Indulge in negative emotions and feel sorry for yourself.

• Or, use those emotions as a catalyst, as motivation to act. These actions can lead to success.

So next time you seem to be losing control in a situation, do what Taylor Swift does.

Instead of focusing on what you can’t change, focus on what you can and turn “emotional” into emotional intelligence.
