Swifties are spotting some pretty striking similarities between Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce's “Love Story” and High School Musical, which was not lost on Vanessa Hudgens.

A user on X (formerly known as Twitter) recently compared Swift and Kelce's relationship to the plot of the Disney Channel franchise.

“The chiefs game and the golden globes being within hours of each other reminds me when Troy and Gabriella had the basketball game and the academic decathlon at the same time as the audition for the school musical,” X user @TheLuckyMia tweeted on Jan. 7.

Swift, 34, could be seen in the stands rooting for her Kansas City Chiefs boyfriend Kelce, 34, on game days during the 2023 season. However, on Jan. 7, the “Blank Space” singer skipped Kelce's matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders to attend the 81st Golden Globe Awards, where her Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour film was nominated for cinematic and box office achievement.

The tweet caught Hudgens' attention on Instagram last week. “Hilarious,” the 35-year-old commented on an Entertainment Tonight post.

“East High is taken by storm when Troy, the star captain of the school's basketball team, and Gabriella, a brainy new student, connect on a level that's more than a school crush. When the two discover they might have a real passion for singing, they take their place in the spotlight, setting off a chain of events that puts all of East High into a musical frenzy,” a synopsis of the film reads.

It seems that life imitates art, because both Swift and Hudgens are happily in relationships with star athletes.

Hudgens recently tied the knot with her Major League Baseball beau Cole Tucker, who reportedly signed a minor league contract with the Seattle Mariners.

“It was genuinely the most magical weekend of my life,” she told Vogue about their Dec. 2 Mexico wedding. “I am so grateful that we got to have a private wedding, and it helped that I took everyone’s phones away."

She previously revealed that the two met on a Zoom call during the pandemic, and she later sent him a private message.

"I fully just slid into his DMs and was like, 'Hey, it was nice to meet you.' So I think there is no shame in making the first move," Hudgens said on The Drew Barrymore Show in May 2021.

As for Swift, when she was named Time's 2023 Person of the Year in December, she revealed that she and Kelce began dating before October 2023.

"I think some people think that they saw our first date at that game? We would never be psychotic enough to hard launch a first date," Swift said.
