Earlier this year, Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn called it quits on their long-term relationship, and Swift was seen with a new man – The 1975’s Matty Healy. This news shocked many fans of Swift and Healy alike.
Healy is known for his daring acts on stage during concerts – including his love for kissing fans. The 1975 frontman often brings one lucky fan on stage and makes out with them in front of the crowd. During one concert, he took things a step further by sucking on a woman’s fingers, sparking a debate online. However, he ditched the tradition in January 2023 after Swift attended one of his shows.
Healy has been in hot water on numerous occasions. He caused an uproar in November 2022 after eating a raw steak while touching himself on stage at Madison Square Garden. During the show, the shirtless singer got down on his knees while chomping on the meat in between songs.
Amid backlash over Kanye West’s anti-Semitic comments, Healy was accused of doing the Nazi salute while marching on stage during a performance of “Love It If We Made It.”
During an episode of the “Adam Friedland Show,” Healy sat idly by as hosts Adam Friedland and Nick Mullen made a slew of racist remarks about rapper Ice Spice. The podcast episode was so offensive that many platforms took it down, prompting Healy to later apologize to the rapper.
As if that wasn’t enough, Healy also made a jarring confession about his porn preferences during the disturbing podcast episode.
Confession and Past Remarks
Although Healy has been an outward critic of religion for most of his career, the singer shocked fans after referring to himself as the “Messiah” on multiple occasions. In a 2016 interview with the Guardian, the rocker said he was never misquoted, doubling down on the fact that he should be held in high regard.
Before Healy and Swift were reportedly “madly in love,” the rocker was appalled by the idea of dating her. After being blasted for the apparent misogynistic remarks, Healy later backtracked, explaining that he wasn’t trying to “shade” Swift and her love life.
