Matty Healy Was Spotted At Taylor Swift’s Nashville Show
Now that Taylor Swift is officially a single woman again, it’s reported that a new tepid romance is fully underway. You’d think her recent split with her boyfriend of six years Joe Alwyn would be enough content for her next album, but nope! She’s gotta keep things interesting for the fans by dating another English dude, The 1975’s Matty Healy. And while it’s not official-official that they’re going steady, Matt kept the rumor mill chugging along by showing up to her Nashville show. As we are all aware, true love is engaging in a carefully crafted series of appearances with your maybe boyfriend for PR purposes. L’amour!
It was recently reported that the two singers were dating and although it’s “super-early days” they are “madly in love.” While that may shock some of you, remember that this is par for the course for TayTay. She’s got albums to churn out, after all! Pre-contract, Taylor showed up to a The 1975 performance in January, and now that Matty’s signed the NDA, he returned the favor by stopping by Taylor’s Eras tour. via People:
Fresh off his own tour, The 1975’s Matty Healy has been spotted catching another show: Taylor Swift’s first Nashville Eras stop.
Fans started buzzing online earlier this week after The Sun reported Wednesday that the musicians are dating. On Friday night, Healy, 34, was snapped by concertgoers watching Swift, 33, perform at Nissan Stadium in Tennessee.
Reps for Swift and The 1975 did not immediately return requests for comment.

I dunno if that’s the look of love on Matty’s face or the look of a man debating whether he’ll have a Big Mac or Whopper after the show. So far, the fans’ reactions to the dating rumors have been mixed. If you didn’t know, Matty’s kiiiiind of…problematic. He’s made some racist “jokes” about rapper Ice Spice, peaced out of Twitter after being accused of using the BLM movement to promote his music, and some other controversies too long to get into. The fans aren’t alone in their disapproval. Even Matty is against dating Taylor Swift, as he declared in the past. via Page Six:
Back in 2016, when asked if he was afraid of losing himself in a relationship, The 1975 rocker reportedly said, “Yeah, Absolutely.”
“And the reason I mention that is because if I had gone out with Taylor Swift I would’ve been, ‘F–king hell! I am NOT being Taylor Swift’s boyfriend.’ You know, ‘F–K. THAT,’” he said, per The Mirror.
“That’s also a man thing, a de-masculinating, emasculating thing.”
But Healy, 34, claimed that his entanglement with Swift, 33, was nothing more than a “flirtation.”
“I don’t do anything else, right, so it doesn’t leave a lot of room for me going out, or shagging someone,” he told Q at the time. “So the one time I did have a flirtation with a girl it ends up going everywhere…. I mean, I got on E! News and people were like, ‘Who’s Matt Healy?’ so that was cool.”
Cut to 2023, and Matty hearts Taylor. The things we do for getting a higher profile and famewhoring love, eh! So is this Taylor’s attempt at dating a “bad boy”? I guess we all go through the phase of dating an edgy Reddit reject!
