The 1975’s lead singer recently made headlines for kissing a fan onstage, which some have called “creepy.” However, the woman has since defended the British singer.
During a show in Las Vegas, the 33-year-old was midway through performing the song “Robbers” when he reached into the audience and brought a woman up to the stage.
Video of the incident shows the two in an embrace before the woman is pulled away as they stagger around on stage and kiss momentarily.
Who is Matt Healy?
Born on April 8, 1989 in London, United Kingdom, Matt Healy is a British singer and the lead vocalist of the band The 1975 (since 2002)
Healy was born to actors Denise Welch and Tim Healy and grew up in Newcastle, Cheshire.
He met Ross MacDonald, Adam Hann, and George Daniel as teenagers at Wilmslow High School in Wilmslow in 2002. When a local council worker organised a number of gigs for teenagers, the band was formed. Hann approached Matty Healy and said he wanted to play one of these shows.
According to Healy, the band began by playing covers until they “eventually wrote a song.” He added , we began there, and we’ve been making music together since we were about 13.”
After Hann invited the members to form a band, they spent their early days in a local club covering punk songs. Healy was the drummer at first but took over vocals after the previous singer left to form another band (this being Elliot Williams of the indie rock band Editors). To round out the final lineup, George Daniel was hired as the new drummer.
Healy has been candid about his struggles with addiction. his His heroin use was “the first time where there had been anything that one of us was doing, or was into, that the others weren’t… It was the first time I had to tell them something. It was the first time that the idea of a secret existing even came out. It’s almost as if, well, is there anything else that we’ve not known? Because that’s a big thing,” as per The Rolling Stone.
