In December 2014, just before Taylor Swift met Calvin Harris, she was rumoured to be dating The 1975 singer Matt Healy – and now he’s come out and hit back at Taylor big time! Ouch!

Yep, she was the ultimate girlfriend, going to his concerts, wearing his band t-shirts, and at the time, Matt even told a radio host, “We exchanged numbers. Let’s see what happens.”

But now, Matt tells Q magazine that it was ‘just a flirtation’.

He said, “So the one time I did have a flirtation with a girl, it ends up going everywhere…I mean, I got on E! News and people were like, ‘Who’s Matt Healy?’ so that was cool.”

“But I didn’t make a big deal out of it myself. It’s not really anything to talk about, because if she wasn’t Taylor Swift we wouldn’t be talking about her. She wasn’t a big impact on my life.” Yikes!

But it didn’t stop there…

He continued, “It’s just interesting to me how interested the world is about Taylor Swift. The reason I mention that is because if I had [properly] gone out with Taylor Swift, I would’ve been, ‘F***ing hell, I am not being Taylor Swift’s boyfriend. You know, “F**k. That.”‘ That’s also a man thing, a de-masculinating, emasculating thing.”

Seriously? Who wouldn’t want to be Taylor Swift’s boyfriend!?
