Mark Zuckerberg seen at Taylor Swift concert wearing face gems


Mark Zuckerberg’s more than just a tech mogul — he’s also a “Bejeweled” Swiftie.

The 39-year-old Meta boss was pictured with gemstones in a heart shape around his eye while attending Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour” in Santa Clara, Calif., over the weekend with his wife, Priscilla Chan, and three daughters.

“Life of a girl dad,” Zuckerberg wrote in his Instagram post.

Another photo showed his glitter-covered hand and wrist, which sported five different beaded friendship bracelets that spelled out Swift’s popular albums, including “Midnights,” “Red,” “Fearless” and “1989.”

Handmade bracelets like the ones Zuckerberg was wearing have become a staple for attendees of “Eras Tour,” where Swift has performed her chart-topping singles including “Bejeweled.”

Zuckerberg’s post was flooded with comments from users lauding the tech tycoon — who boasts a net worth of $118 billion — for spending quality time with his family.

“Zucc is getting better at showing his user base that he’s an actual human,” one user commented.

“Probably hands down the best dad of all the tech giants,” another wrote.

Meanwhile, other users questioned why Zuckerberg’s seats were so high up despite his fortune.

“Bro owns the biggest social media platform but gets such high up seats,” one user wrote.

However, Zuckerberg and his family appeared to be in one of the box suite’s offered at Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium, which are located in the venue’s higher tiers.

According to the stadium’s website, the exclusive lounges range from $15,000 to $50,000 and can accommodate up to 22 guests.

They also come with catering and business amenities upon request.

When not working at Meta’s CEO, Zuckerberg has multiple pastimes aside from taking his daughters to see the highest-grossing tour of all time.

Recently, it was revealed that Zuckerberg has taken up flying, and successfully applied for the student certificate with the Federal Aviation Administration to get his pilot’s license.

Should he ace his test to get a pilot’s license, he would join other high-flying tech aviators, including OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, Snap CEO Evan Spiegel and potential “cage match” foe Musk.

While the tech titans are reportedly “dead serious” about bringing the fight to fruition, a time and place has yet to be announced, though UFC President Dana White said he’s spoken to both parties about making it happen in Las Vegas.

Zuckerberg has also developed a passion for Brazilian jiu-jitsu, touting his promotion to a blue belt from the novice white belt.

He’s shared a host of photos while training with the top names in MMA and jiu-jitsu, including black belt competitor Mikey Musumeci, MMA world champ trainer Dave Camarillo and cage fighter Khai Wu.

Earlier this month, Zuckerberg showed off his ripped physique while standing between Israel Adesanya and Alex Volkanovski — fighters with 50 UFC wins and only four losses between the two of them.
