Matt Healy, ostensibly the singer of the band The 1975, is becoming much better known as the guy who insists he’s not dating Taylor Swift, despite photos of the pair together and his regular comments during interviews about meeting her. But God, guys, why do you keep bringing it up? He totally doesn’t want to talk about it. Except he does: It’s “all bloody fake. It’s a farce,” Healy insists during a recent radio interview. “We met each other, we exchanged numbers in the same way that a lot of people in this world kind of do, and we spoke occasionally. She’s the biggest pop star in the world and I’m in Australia. There’s no relationship of anything happening. It’s just funny how people really, really buy into that.”
That’s all fine and good, but why do you have to bag on Australia like that? What’s wrong with Australia? What did the nation/continent ever do to you, aside from give you a home?
