The 1975’s Matt Healy: ‘I am pretentious. And I’m not apologising’ 

Slated, then feted, pop magpies the 1975 are riding high. Their frontman talks about ignoring critics, his Messiah complex and what really happened with Taylor Swift

Then there were the rumours that he and Taylor Swift were an item. His response led to accusations of misogyny (“If I had gone out with Taylor Swift, I would’ve been, ‘Fucking hell, I am not being Taylor Swift’s boyfriend!’ You know, ‘Fuck. That.’ That’s also a man thing, an emasculating thing”).

I tell him I want to ask the one thing everybody wants to know about him. “Taylor Swift?” he answers immediately. Yes, I say, did you go out with her or not? “No, did I fuck.”

Did he have any relationship with her, I ask in my best Ken Starr voice. “No.” Sex? “No.” Did you kiss? “No.” So why the huge hoo-ha? “She came to a show and we hung out. We fancied each other, but then we couldn’t have it go any further, because it would be like going out with Barack Obama.” He says there was nothing misogynistic about his comments, he was simply being honest: he didn’t like the prospect of two giant egos clashing and him coming off second best.
