After the video of The 1975 frontman, Matt Healy luring a fan on stage and kissing her was labelled “creepy” on social media, the fan defended Healy.
During their show in Las Vegas, the British musician leaned into the audience and pulled a woman up onto the stage as he was singing the song Robbers.
In a fan-shot video of the event, the two kiss briefly before separating after embracing and appearing to stagger around on stage.

“On a real note I do want to state some facts before we get any farther, I had this on my phone because he mentioned at some point, ‘I can only make out with you,’” the fan, named Isabella, wrote, alongside a screenshot from a phone that read “So we making out?”
“So I did this, he saw it and brought me up, HE ASKED before he kissed me!,” she continued, “Also I’m a grown age of 24.”
In recent months, Healy’s behaviour on stage has drawn a lot of attention. Fans have shared videos of the singer crowd surfing, slamming young fans, stumbling on stage, and taking a fan’s phone and rubbing it on his crotch before slurring an apology.
His conduct off the stage has also been called into question after he attacked triple j after the band announced an Australian tour.
Healy captioned an Instagram photo of triple j’s post, “Play our music then before you start licking our arse just because you’ve finally realised we’re mint.”
Soon after, he took to Twitter to blast triple j, writing, “You literally have nothing to do with us coming to Australia, so don’t start getting involved now.” You don’t have a monopoly on cool, and your company’s CEO is a jerk, so f**k off.”
This week, The 1975 announced the Australian and New Zealand legs of their ‘At Their Very Best’ world tour, which will kick off in Perth next April, followed by dates in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane.
