Watch: Taylor Swift's FULL SPEECH from Eras Tour Film Premiere

Taylor Swift's admiration for fans never goes out of style.

The singer gave a heartfelt speech at her Eras Tour movie premiere in Los Angeles on Oct. 11.

"This is a core memory for me," she shared on stage. "Let me just preface by saying I've always had fun doing this. I can't believe music is my career. That's crazy to me. I've always loved it."

However, as Taylor noted, "I've never had a fraction of the amount of fun I had on the Eras Tour before, ever."

"I think you'll see that you absolutely are main characters in this film, because that's what made the tour magical," she continued. "That's what made it different than anything I've ever done in my life—is like your attention to detail, your preparation, your passion, your intensity. Like, you cared so much about these shows and that made all the difference for us."

Why Travis Kelce Could Be "The 1" for Taylor Swift

As for her red carpet fashion? It's a look Swifties know all too well. Taylor donned a blue Oscar de la Renta gown and short bob hairdo in honor of her 1989 era, along with her signature red lip classic thing. And when it came to accessories, the pop star was bejeweled in a delicate diamond necklace and matching bracelet.

Taylor's fans made their way to The Grove shopping center, where they were enchanted to see the 33-year-old show up for the debut of her concert movie—which hits theaters Oct. 12.

And this has been anything but a cruel summer for Taylor, since along with coming off a world tour and a movie premiere, she has been getting major buzz on her rumored romance with Travis Kelce.

Although the Kansas City Chiefs player was absent from the movie premiere, he has made it clear that hanging out with Taylor has been a total touchdown for him.

"As all the attention comes," Travis said during a press conference Oct. 6, "it feels like I was on top of the world after the Super Bowl—and right now, even more on top of the world."

But the tight-end doesn't need an assist when it comes to the media attention. 

"We're learning with the paparazzi just taking photos all over the place," he confessed. "At the same time, it comes with it. You've got a lot of people that care about Taylor, and for good reason."

As for how Taylor feels with all eyes on her? Well, she's able to shake it off like the pro she is and enjoy the Sunday night lights. The "Anti-Hero" artist attended two back-to-back football games, even bringing along her close pals—including Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively and Hugh Jackman—to MetLife Stadium for the Chiefs vs. Jets game Oct. 1.

Even Travis' mom Donna Kelce feels the media frenzy is something out of her wildest dreams.

"I feel like I'm in an alternate universe," she admitted on the Oct. 6 episode of Got It From My Momma podcast, "because it's something that I've never been involved with ever before."
