The 1975 singer Matty Healy was recently spotted at the Bleachers concert, and he looks a bit sad in the photo seen below.
Matty Healy admits to feeling ‘sexualized’ by The 1975 fans.
Healy has admitted that he felt ‘sexualized’ by The 1975 fans in their early fame as he discussed finding romantic relationships difficult. The 33-year-old singer went on to discuss the fans’ ‘romantic’ relationship with the band and said he felt ‘sexualized’ for smoking cigarettes and wearing a leather jacket.
He told The Guardian:
“People were having a romantic relationship with the band, I was sexualized to a certain extent; it was sexy, in the way that leather jackets and smoking and all that kind of s*** was sexy.”
But he admitted he found this depiction difficult because he was struggling with his mental health as he hadn’t dealt with some traumatic ‘early sexual experiences’:
“I’m not going to be specific, but I had some early sexual experiences that, as I got older, were really, really difficult to deal with,” he said.
Matty went on to say that it wasn’t to do with anything that happened at home but said his mental health had become shaped by his sexual experiences and romantic relationships as a teenager. The star, who recently broke up with singer FKA twigs, also admitted he struggled having romantic relationships because he’d worry over things he’d done in the past.
“It’s hard to have romantic relationships with people when you’re on tour, so the one part of my life that I found difficult got really hard, and I would focus on it, so I would never be in the moment,” he admitted.
Matty said he would stand backstage ahead of The 1975 performances and dwell on things he had done in the past as he candidly spoke about his mental health. He admitted he was “really traumatized” at the time, but said he is now much happier in himself after going to rehab and having therapy.
