The 1975’s Matt Healy has responded to claims that he is a misogynist after a Q Magazine released its interview earlier this week featuring the singer saying he never dated Taylor Swift. Matt has spoken out against those claims via Twitter saying that his words were “totally taken out of context.”
He went on to explain that again the two never dated, but the speculation of the romance gave him a fear of being “someone’s boyfriend before even being recognized for my music or presence as a person in my own right.”
Matt goes on to put blame, not on the writer of the article, but the publication that decided to misquote him “knowing many others would follow.” With one final message, he adds “Go fuck yourself.”
