Taylor look away – Matty Healy is now kissing security guards on stage

The 1975 frontman has been known for his on-stage smooches, which seemingly went on the backburner after he started dating Taylor Swift.

Matty Healy has been known to kiss fans, and even one of his bandmates, as part of his stage act with The 1975 during their song ‘Robbers.’ One time, he even sucked someone’s thumb, which was rather traumatising to witness. And now, he’s making out with security guards.

But since Healy’s been rumoured to be dating Taylor Swift, fans have favoured analysing their apparent romance over his onstage antics. Recently Healy was busy showing up for Swift during Eras Tour weekends in Nashville and Philadelphia, and now he’s back on the road with his band.

At The 1975’s performance at Denmark’s NorthSide Festival this weekend, the kiss returned. This time, Healy, bottle of alcohol in hand, knelt in front of a smiling security guard at the fest and smooched him on the lips. “Wanna kiss me?” he mouthed to him before going for it, which is exactly as creepy as it sounds. 

While Healy hasn’t dropped snogging from his routine, he did make it a point not to lock lips with anyone right in front of Swift when she made a surprise appearance at The 1975’s show at London’s O2 Arena in January. At the concert – where Swift gave an impromptu live performance of her own ‘Anti-Hero’ and The 1975’s ‘The City’ – Healy announced to the audience, “I’m not kissing anybody in front of Taylor Swift. Have some respect. In front of the queen? It’s not happening.”

During The 1975’s set at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend festival last weekend, Healy seemingly brought up the Swift dating rumours. He cleverly addressed them by revealing nothing at all. “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,” Healy said, presumably referencing his rumoured relationship. 

Recently, Healy also officially left all forms of social media in April, telling an audience in Australia: “The era of me being a fucking arsehole is coming to an end. I’ve had enough.”
