On Saturday, Matt Healy performed with his band The 1975 at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Dundee, Scotland, and while he didn’t mention Taylor Swift by name, he did allude to their romance while on stage. Or at least to people’s curiosity about his relationship to the Midnights singer.
Just before their set began, Healy asked the crowd, “Is it all a bit? Is it sincere? Will he ever address it? All of these questions and more will be ignored in the next hour. Ladies and gentleman, this is The 1975.”
It was reported this week by The Sun that Healy and Swift’s relationship is progressing very rapidly and that he is even considering moving into her home so they can “spend as much time together as they can.”
“He and Taylor are so loved up and want to spend as much time together as they can,” a source told the publication. “Matty has already told the 1975 team that he’ll be doing all the band demos in America for the foreseeable. He will work on his parts for their collaboration while she is on tour and has scheduled time to attend select shows to gather inspiration for her next album.”
At the moment, however, they’re both touring with their own music and making time to meet whenever they can. Swift is currently on her Eras Tour, with a show in Rutherford, New Jersey, this past Saturday. But he has been spotted at other tour stops for Swift’s North American concert leg, like Nashville, even taking to the stage during the opening act to perform with friend Phoebe Bridgers.
Before she was linked to Healy, Swift was going through a breakup with actor Joe Alwyn, who she dated for six years. But while on stage in Boston, Swift also made vague comments about her relationship with Healy that implied things have never been better.
“It’s insane. I kind of just feel like telling you, that I don’t know, that just…I’ve never been this happy in my life in all aspects of my life ever before,” she told the audience. “And I just want to thank you for being a part of that. It’s not just the tour, like, I don’t know, my life finally feels like it makes sense.”
