Matty Healy responds after Taylor Swift savages him in brutal tracks on new album

“We were all nervous about what she might have said on the album.”

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Taylor Swift dropped a new album yesterday.

Marking the songstress’ fifth brand new album in the same number of years, the new release has already smashed records, becoming the biggest debut on Spotify ever with 313 million streams, smashing her own record of 185 million streams with Midnights.

However, everyone has been talking about the same thing following The Tortured Poet’s Department’s release – that Matty Healy must have been a really bad boyfriend.

It’s reported that Swift and Healy dated briefly last year, with him being spotted at multiple Eras Tour shows. The pair are also said to have had a fling a decade before.

However, Swifties noted that the lyrics that appear to be about Healy on the new album are particularly brutal, with fans pointing to ‘The Smallest Man That Ever Lived’ as being particularly representative of The 1975 singer.

Sources close to Healy have spoken out, and claimed that he ‘couldn’t be happier’ with Swift’s new album.

“Matty still thinks very highly of Taylor but we were all nervous about what she might have said on the album,” they said, per Mail Online.

“Matty’s family were worried that Taylor was going to rip him apart. Matty has struggled with life in the public eye, and he’s been doing really well, but the last thing that he needs is for every Swiftie in the world to think he’s a villain.”

Another source told the outlet Healy ‘was worried that their story would be shed in a negative light,’ but was ‘really appreciative of the heads up’ that Swift gave him.
