Sources Say Taylor Swift Was Just “Letting Off Steam” With Matty Healy And “Will Not Be Writing Albums About This One”
Welp, as predicted by anyone with reason and/or a marketing degree, Taylor Swift and her rebound beau, Matty Healy from The 1975, have reportedly broken up. This movie isn’t that shucking since Taylor was roasted for sullying her pristine reputation by dating the edgiest of edgy edgelords. The dick couldn’t have been that good–there was no way. And it sure doesn’t seem to have been because not only is Taylor cutting ties, sources are publicly tossing Matty to the wolves and washing their hands of him. They said Taylor was just letting “off some steam” and sewing her “oats.” Well, it’s nice that Taylor got to feel the excitement of dating a racist dude for a hot minute, I guess…
Taylor and Matty began dating last month after she and her previous man, Joe Alwyn, broke up in April. Taylor and Joe were together for six years. Since then, Matty’s problematic history of racism and anti-Semitism kept her fans absolutely rattled with hate over her dating him. Joe’s side also got a few shots in, with a source claiming he was “distraught and slighted“ because Matty and Taylor had been hanging out for months, and he had thought he had nothing to worry about between them. Taylor then released a song about a dying relationship where her lover didn’t want to marry her. It was probably about Joe.
But don’t expect a song about poor rebound boy Matty because a source tells Page Six that everyone in Taylor’s orbit knew that this shit was not going to last. And Taylor is already over it because she never even cared in the first place, so says the source:
“Everyone who really knows her has been saying all along that this was a fun, good time thing that would last as long as it lasted and would be no big deal once it was done,” an insider told us following news of their breakup Monday.
“It’s all stupid,” they said of the media frenzy surrounding the former couple. “She will not be writing albums about this one. It was a summertime thing. Does everyone have amnesia about Tom Hiddleston? Jesus Christ.”
The insider further noted that Swift “can’t have a good time with anyone without the press marrying her off to them.” “Then when she moves on, they have to basically have her file for divorce,” they added.
Simply put, Swift was just looking for a fun time after her “stifling” relationship with Joe Alwyn, whom she split from in April after six years of dating. “She’s allowed to let off some steam and sew [sic] her oats afterwards without people claiming first that she’s “head over heels” and then that she’s “breaking up” with the guy. It’s not a breakup. It’s a natural evolution of a fun little thing whose moment is over.”
Did you catch how this source also still had some smoke for Joe? He’s still on notice!
Well, the source could be right. Taylor won’t write any songs about Matty, and not because she can’t come up with a word that rhymes with “antisemitic.” But because she doesn’t want to remind us all that she made a bad branding decision by dating him in the first place.
