Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend Matty Healy has finally revealed what he thinks about her new album after fans claimed a number of tracks are about him

TAYLOR Swift’s ex-boyfriend Matty Healy has finally revealed what he thinks about her new album after fans claimed a number of tracks are about him.

The 1975 frontman dated Taylor following her split from Brit actor Joe Alwyn last year.

The whirlwind rebound romance saw the pair spend time together on both sides of the Atlantic, before Taylor moved on with her beer-chugging NFL superstar partner Travis Kelce.

Swifties have been poring over every track of her new record, The Tortured Poets Department, and believe tracks like The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived, Guilty as Sin? and But Daddy I Love Him are all about Healy.

The critical lyrics of ‘Smallest Man’ read: “Was any of it true?/ Gazing at me starry-eyed/ In your Jehovah’s Witness suit/ Who the f*** was that guy?/ You tried to buy some pills/ From a friend of friends of mine/ They just ghosted you/ Now you know what it feels like.”

The frontman had a mature response when a journalist approached him on the street in the US and asked for his thoughts on Taylor’s “diss” track about him.

Wearing a navy hoodie and white vest top, a surprised Matty said: “My diss track? Oh [laughs], I haven’t listened to the album much but I’m sure it’s good.”

He then politely continued on his way, casually walking along the sidewalk.

The response garnered respect from music fans.

One person said: “This is a very mature response coming from someone’s ex tbh.”

Another agreed, saying: He’s known for being incredibly mature about all of his relationships since becoming a famous musician so this is just normal Matty Healy stuff.

However, his true feelings might be different when his band’s sixth album is eventually released.

Last night we exclusively revealed that Healy is working on new music and, crucially, didn’t sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) during his romance with Taylor.

Those who know Healy told us he had no idea he was going to be referenced and only found out when his name started trending on social media last Friday.

A source said: “Matty is currently keeping a low profile working on The 1975’s next album.

“This time last week he had no idea he was about to become one of the most talked about men on the planet.

“He has opted to keep silent, but no NDA has been signed.

“Like Taylor, he uses his music as a form of release and storytelling.

“It’s naturally caused him to think about their time together and he’s never been one to hold back when speaking his mind.

“Also like Taylor, he’s moved on and is very happy with his current relationship with Gabbriette Bechtel.

“But there is nothing stopping him from writing about his romance with Taylor and having his say on what she said about him.

“Fans of the band should be keeping an eye out when that album drops.”

Healy has got form when it comes to writing about his love life.

He previously wrote about his relationship with American star Halsey, after she hammered him on her 2016 single Colours.

On the song, she said of Healy: “You’re only happy when your sorry head is filled with dope/I hope you make it to the day you’re 28 years old.”

The 1975’s 2016 track She’s American is thought to be about Halsey, and was far more favourable than her ode to him.

In it, Healy sings: “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It.”
