Taylor Swift & Matt Healy are ‘inseparable’, Taylor has ‘never been this happy in my life’

Taylor Swift’s 2016 summer is still burned into my mind. The summer of Tiddlebanging, the summer of the Worldwide Tiddles Tour, the summer where Tom Hiddleston wore the “I Heart TS” t-shirt. Gossip-wise, it was maybe the best summer in the past decade. The Tiddles Tour is the gossip gold-standard, and while I was happy for Taylor when she was with Lowkey Joe Alwyn, I still longed for Taylor to be messy. Well, I got my wish. Taylor and Joe broke up in maybe March or April. It’s more than likely that she had already been fooling around with Matt Healy for months before the split. And now “Swealy” is trying to give us some Tiddles vibes.

Taylor Swift declared she’s “never been this happy” amid her new romance with The 1975 singer Matty Healy.

“I kind of feel like telling you, I don’t know, I’ve just never been this happy in my life, in all aspects of my life ever before,” the singer told concertgoers at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., Saturday night, marking the latest stop on her Eras Tour.

“And I just want to thank you for being a part of that. It’s not just the tour. I just sort of feel like my life finally feels like it makes sense.” Swift continued on, telling the crowd, “So I thought I’d play this song, which brings me a lot of happy memories,” before belting out the evening’s surprise song, “Question…?”

Although there was no sign of her new beau at the show, Healy, 34, was seen sneaking into Swift’s New York City apartment a few nights earlier. According to a TikTok video posted by @brandeegaar, the “Chocolate” hitmaker could be seen running up the stairs and into the main lobby of Swift’s Manhattan building on Thursday, while someone held the door open for him. Healy cut a casual figure for the late-night rendezvous, rocking a dark sweater, jeans and white sneakers while carrying a duffel bag.

I think she is enjoying herself and she’s in love. Now, will it stay that way? I mentioned Tom Hiddleston because that’s what this romance reminds me of, the speed with which they got together, the way they burned brightly and then the flame was extinguished within four months or so. We’ll see!

A source also told The Messenger that Swift and Healy “have been friends for years and reconnected. They had talked about working on music together years ago, but reunited through mutual friends….things moved very quickly and she was swept off her feet. They have been inseparable.” Healy has also met Taylor’s family (we knew that already) and he apparently “fits right in as if they have been dating for years.” Ouch for Joe Alwyn – six years together, Taylor practically moving to London to be with him, and Healy is getting the full “it feels like they’ve been together for years” treatment.

    Really trying hard to rub this in Joes face isn’t she?
    She was with him for 6 years there seems to be some overlap in these relationships, but instead of grieving their relationship she wants him to know she was never as happy with him as she is with this guy she is been dating a couple months?

    • Millennial says:

      I definitely think some of this is getting back at Joe/letting Joe know she’s a hot commodity and is fiiiiine, thank you very much. It also has vibes of Joe wanted her to remain small so now watch her be the biggest story.

      When they got together I honestly question if Joe was a 1975 fan and this is Taylor’s revenge.

      • Coco says:

        “It also has vibes of Joe wanted her to remain small so now watch her be the biggest story.”

        Just stop

      • SAS says:

        Cmon now, the Swiftie line of Joe being threatened by her success really doesn’t hold up when he’s helped her write 3 massive albums and been around while she’s developing her directing projects and the eras tour has been in the planning for at least the last year. I don’t buy it.

      • Emily says:

        This has vibes of Joe breaking up with Taylor.

  2. Mel says:

    Isn’t this what she always says? Whatever Taylor, whatever.

  3. OzJennifer says:

    This doesn’t feel messy to me – it feels cruel. Ouch for Joe Alwyn, indeed.

  4. TIFFANY says:

    Her time with Tom was a good time and just something to giggle at.

    This ain’t it.

    Unless Tom is out here being a Nazi who loves watching Black women be degraded in p0rn, this comparison is not fair to Tom. At all.

    • Shawna says:

      Definitely not fair to Tom! The fact that Taylor is rolling Healy out in the same way is something we should feel grossed out by.

    • ChillinginDC says:

      Tom needs a cease and desist on these loons. He’s happily married to a Black woman. He’s not racist like Taylor’s latest clown is.

    • Abby says:

      Yeah nothing like the Tom situation. Tom was a nice guy, it was cute if a little over-the-top. This is not. This is super cringe.

  5. Tanesha86 says:

    So she’s fully committed to this relationship with this racist, misogynistic and antisemitic clown? I bet the Swifties eat it right up. Gross

    • TIFFANY says:

      It’s sad on so many levels.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Yep, I was on another forum (it meant nothing, I love you celebitchy!) and her fans were accusing people of not being fair to Matt, as being a scumbag is a character he plays on stage, that is not the “real” him. Why anyone would do Hitler salutes, mock Asian people and claim to watch pRon that is violent and degrading to WOC as a “character” was not explained.

    • GreenTurtle says:

      Swifties aren’t a monolith. The Reddit Swifties are not eating it up at all, and are in fact very disappointed, but it’s an older crowd. The deranged Tik Tok Swifties are the ones blindly worshipping everything she does. It’s a younger, weirder, more obsessive demographic.

  6. Michael says:

    It kind of feels like Taylor will be spending this entire tour subtly shading her ex for daring to leave her. It is not making her look too great in my opinion but I doubt her fan base really cares

    • SarahCS says:

      When I saw the quote in the title I assumed this was something attributed to her, via friends, etc. Nope, right up there on stage to thousands and captured for the worlds media. Not a great look.

  7. Ameerah M says:

    She’s truly the worst.

  8. Kay says:

    From someone who’s been there, this is giving hard rebound/ “I can fix him” energy. And Taylor, I get it. I made tons of bad dating decisions after breakups and went into situationships with full blinders on. It’s embarrassing and gross, in hindsight.

    What I hope she learns after this ends (because it will and likely by the end of summer) is that there’s nothing wrong with dating herself. Take some time, heal, write a couple of albums, go on vacation and enjoy your time and money. Jumping from one relationship to the next eventually catches up with you. At some point, you have to do the work.

    • Coco says:

      Ya no stop making excuses for her.

      She has been friends with Matt for years so she knows exactly what type of person he is. Taylor doesn’t have any blinders she went into this relationship with eyes wide open.

      The woman is showing you exactly who she is and you’re putting on your blinders so you don’t have to see the truth.

  9. HeyKay says:

    Wow. We have learned about this guy and his past awful behavior.
    She is really going all in on this scum.
    Of course, she always goes from one “relationship” to another pretty quickly.
    Even tho, lots of guys she spends time with run less than 1-2 years total.

    But this Matty, No.No.Hell No.
    She is showing us who she is by opening supporting this racist, violent against women porn watcher.
    How does anyone overlook that?

    Plus, after 6 years with Joe she seems to be just throwing this scummy guy at the PR constantly.
    Respect yourself, grow up, learn that you are fine w/o a partner 24/7/365. So juvenile on her part.

  10. Daisy says:

    It honestly feels like she’s overcompensating lmao To me it’s clear Joe ended it. And I don’t see this Matty thing lasting (hopefully, he’s horrible), she’s way too image conscious to stay with him long term.

    • Hell Nah! says:

      I’m with you @Daisy – I believe Joe ended it as well. She admitted that her scheming might play a role in Joe parting ways with her (AntiHero) and her relationship with this nasty POS jumpoff is a (mis)calculated payback on her part. I think as the heat builds up against her – and hopefully it will – she will either take their relationship underground or play the dump-and-blame act she’s used so many times before to try to salvage her image. By then, I hope it’s too late for any resurrection. We know your game, Taylor.

  11. Amy Bee says:

    I suspect Taylor was pretending to be liberal for her brand and to cement her place in the pop world.

  12. SM says:

    Granted, I’m a long time Taylor hater (beginning with the way she has always used her fans as weapons and says nothing) but I don’t know why Joe is getting such a pass. He was with her for SIX YEARS. He knows damn well who she is.

    • girl_ninja says:

      Why Joe is getting a pass in how gross Taylor is swing a racist misogynist?

  13. CFY says:

    This 100% lives rent free in my head. I was thinking about this yesterday and just how WEIRD this feels. Like, it feels fishy and like some game is afoot, right? Shades of the Big Romance with Hiddles, which we all know was to distract and counteract the big drama with Kim/Kanye and the narrative her ex before Hiddles initially tried to set, about what an unlovable, perpetually single lady she was destined to be.

    But – her tour is literally her singing songs about other known men, including a whole album about falling in love with another guy, two albums containing songs she wrote WITH that guy, and an album that leads off with wanting to stay in a loved up glow with him. And New Racist Guy has attended her shows and sang along with his hand over his heart. Anyway. I continue to watch, which I know is what they want, but I feel mystified and like some manipulation is going on. Which they probably also want. Poor Swifties – but she did warn them in Antihero that this who is she is!

  14. Cat says:

    I’ve really become to like Taylor again after disliking her after the way she treated Tom Hiddleston and made him out to be some attention seeking nightmare when we all know that shit was mostly on her terms. (It’s no surprise The Sun has had all her relationships exclusive including Tom, Joe and Matty)

    But now, I’m really turned off. I’m a big fan of the 1975 but Matty is so gross/racist/pos. It definitely feels like she’s got an axe to grind and she’s trying to hurt Joe.

    Wish she would stay single for a year. It’s strange, she was getting rave reviews for her tour, people felt sorry for her after the break up news came out but now the general public has switched…. Bad PR moves all around.

    • Ameerah M says:

      Wait, what? Matt Healy is a gross/racist/POS?? But you’re a BIG FAN of the 1975? How does that work exactly??

      • Natalie_K says:

        I like The 1975’s music and I like George and Ross and Adam. I don’t support what Matty does as a person and would not follow him if he launched a solo career.

        That’s how it works for me at least.

  15. Teee says:

    Hey, let’s not forget Matt is scum. Taylor already has a long history of caring only when power, applause and money are at risk. She’s a narcissistic personality with no regard for WOC, BIPOC, Feminism, social justice — all the sorts.

    It’s shameful how many articles, like this one, just gloss over the scumminess of these people.

  16. Olivia says:

    Wasn’t Matty addicted to heroin and recently out of rehab? I know nothing about the guy, but how recent is his sobriety?

    • Hollz says:

      He went to rehab in late 2017. I haven’t seen anything about a relapse since, but I didn’t even know who he was until he started dating Taylor, so it definitely could have happened and I just didn’t see an article about it.

    • Kim says:

      I think Taylor is using him. I don’t think he has been out of rehab that long or he took a break-something, maybe less than a year. And I don’t think the drug use was an act because he looked out of it.

      This is what people like Taylor do. They don’t have any stories because their lives are easy. They befriend people with problems and Trot them out. I just hope for this guys sake she doesn’t cause him to relapse.
      She is building him up and introducing him to a totally different audience. That’s a lot.

      • Polly says:

        This guy is incredibly racist and misogynistic. Don’t waste your time worrying about him.

  17. girl_ninja says:

    She doesn’t care. When this ends she will somehow make herself the victim and move onto the next. She’s disgraceful the way she plots and schemes.

    But women like her and Waity get a general pass for schemes. As does her friend Blake Lively. Gross. Just gross.

    • Hell Nah! says:

      @girl_ninja – 100%!!

    • GreenTurtle says:

      Yup. I would fully buy that Joe did nothing wrong, and they did just grow apart, but Taylor is so addicted to playing the victim that she’s going to act like she’s justified in rubbing her relationship with this Matty person in Joe’s face. It’s now totally clear that the secrecy/privacy of her relationship with Joe was not growth and maturity, but just an exciting, temporary kink for her (our secret moments, they have no idea about me and you, they don’t know us, blah blah. It’s referenced all over the Joe love songs) and she’s going back to her attention wh0ring Tiddlesbanging love tour ways.

      It makes me ill that she won’t defend any of her exes against the rabid part of her fan base.

    • Spillthattea says:

      All of this. And now (most) of the world finally has caught on to her act.
      Watch her set him up that he did something heinous, and guys, she didn’t know! Really! Feminism! Girl Power! FKA Twigs is her new BFF! 🤮🤮🤮

    • Spillthattea says:

      Agreed 💯
      And what do they all have in common? Rich white girl privilege. Disgusting.

  18. Trish says:

    I don’t like her.

  19. NYC212 says:

    Are we gonna leave out the most relevant details about him and why it makes her proclamation of joy so awful? I’ll do it.

    Taylor Swift is a vile human being. I don’t believe for a minute that she didn’t know about this dirtbag’s vile views and conduct. But, if she didn’t, she knows now and is still proudly parading around with him. If she’s happy to be with him, then she most certainly shares his views. His behavior is so hideous and grotesque that only people who agree with them are okay with voluntarily being associated with him, friends with him, working with him, or dating him. Anyone who denies that is in denial about her.

    It is astounding to see her stans defending the fact Taylor Swift is, according to her, happier than she’s ever been now that she’s with a racist and antisemitic cretin who gets off on racist sexual humiliation of black women. They don’t realize that when they defend her, they are defending him too. A lot of people are telling on themselves and it isn’t just TS. If you are a Swiftie, your girl is so comfortable doing this because she knows you guys will defend her, defend him, still listen to her music, and buy tickets to her concerts. She knows you’re trash and that your morality is about as deep as a sheet of paper. Now the rest of us do too.

    • Ameerah M says:

      Round of applause for ALL OF THIS

    • Hell Nah! says:

      AMEN NYC212!!

      You’ve said it ALL.

      • OriginalLeigh says:

        Yep! Much like Trump, Taylor obviously knows her fan base very well. She knows they will support her while she proclaims to the world that she has never been happier than she is with a man who literally gets off on watching Black women get tortured…

    • Teee says:

      100% a million times over everything you articulate here.

    • Polly says:

      All of this. She, along with her PR team and her stans, is helping to whitewash his reputation and downplay the terrible things he’s done. She is not a good person.

    • February Pisces says:

      She comes across as a huge psychopath, who probably calls her boyfriend 100 times a day. I can’t imagine anyone actually wanting to take her on, she’s such a vengeful lunatic that she has to resort to dating this creep.

      So glad joe escaped, he never looked happy being around her.

      • Elgen says:

        Isn’t she the one who made two music videos recently about ex who briefly dated her more than decade ago where she acted like total crazy ex, hoping how her ex tots still is in love with her (loool), and crashing his imaginary wedding and everything, tried to nominate one of those for Oscars – while her relationships with Joe were sinking? Yea, she sounds like a psychopath.

  20. Hell Nah! says:

    I believe Joe dumped her and her revenge meter is now set to ‘Destroy’. She’s a mastermind after all and we know every public facing word out of her mouth is highly calculated. Not knowing any more than what I’ve seen from her over the years when her relationships go south, she runs her PR games and sets the narrative to how awful/jealous/attention-seeking the guy was and she comes out clean. The eternally wronged party. The innocent victim of all these bad, baad guys. I’m so sick of her bashing and hint-hint songwriting about the guys who didn’t cater to her ego or decided she wasn’t worth the trouble. She’s the problem, it’s Her!

    We’ll never hear from Joe’s side (and she’s absolutely counting on him remaining silent) and this latest confession that she’s never EVAH been so happy before is a cruel fist punch to Joe. She’s a revengeful mean girl to her core. That many (mercifully, not all) of her fans are continuing to sing her praises as she doubles down on dating this nasty, racist, misogynist scumdog speaks to the hold she has over her fans. How they can excuse her going all in with this extremely problematic man is an absolute wonder to me. Taylor has no shame and is only interested in staying on top in the hearts and minds of her supporters — what excuse do they have to offer?

    • TwinFalls says:

      There’s no way those song writing credits didn’t come with an NDA. We’ll never hear from Joe. She wouldn’t be popping off so shamelessly if he could refute any of it.

    • The Hench says:

      There’s a saying which I feel could be adapted to Taylor. It’s ‘if you meet one a*sehole in the morning, you’ve met one a*sehole. If you meet a*seholes all day, YOU’RE the a*sehole’

      In Taylor’s case the story is always that AALLL the men are somehow at fault and she’s Little Miss Innocent. No, Taylor, YOU’RE the a*sehole.

  21. Fina says:

    My theory is that both Calvin Harris and Joe Alwyn really broke her heart, when breaking up with her or not proposing (which was the case for Joe right?) and that then to show them what they lost she went on these very public revenge missions. I am not even sure her thing with Tom and now Matt Healy was even real or just something fake for joint benefit, raised profile for him and „see I am winning these breakups“ energy for her. If that was true I can only say, I wish I had a Tom Hiddleston to be my pretend boyfriend to make my ex jealous.

    • Lara says:

      Yeah, wouldn’t be surprised to know that Calvin ended things also . She is so desperate to win in every situation that being dumped isn’t acceptable to her.
      I do think these rebound bfs are real but she is using them for revenge and they are using her to up their profile.

    • Plasma says:

      “My theory is that both Calvin Harris and Joe Alwyn really broke her heart, when breaking up with her or not proposing (which was the case for Joe right?) and that then to show them what they lost she went on these very public revenge missions. ”

      She needs to have a heart first for somebody to break it. I doubt that’s the case. I think she is incapable of real love. Infatuation, lust, obsession – yeah, love -no. She has a huge ego though -and so as somebody say above, when men didn’t cater to her ego or decided she wasn’t worth the trouble, she goes mad. Good for all the men who dumped her and dodged the bullet.

  22. Lara says:

    This is so transparent. She’s rubbing this in Joes face. And it screams I got dumped and I am going for the petty revenge. If not then she’s a total sociopath.

  23. TheOriginalMia says:

    Messy and disrespectful. I mean…even if you are over the moon with this new guy (yuck!), no need to rub it in the face of the ex. Especially when he’s been quiet as a church mouse about the possible overlap.

  24. Spillthattea says:

    Look at this piece of 💩 doubling down on dating a mouth breathing knuckle dragger. I think she’s on a path to destruction, all right. Self destruction. That’s the only ride I’m along for. 🍿

  25. Veronica S. says:

    This has sex infatuation + dramatic flameout written all over it. Let’s meet back in a year for reevaluation. 🍿🍾

  26. Olivia says:

    I do wonder if Tay’s going through a manic high episode…

    Performers often say tours are delicate times of intense highs that can mess with your sense of self and stability.

    Taylor went from a somewhat stable relationship and keeping a very low profile for six years, then wham! A massive tour, her return to being a media darling and in the public’s good graces, a break up, falling ‘madly in love’ (over face time allegedly) and now proclaiming she’s ‘never been happier’ with a very problematic dude that super sketchy – all within less than 8 weeks. This is a ‘Pete Davidson unraveling’ level of whirlwind and impulsivity.

    • Sandra says:

      No – Kanye’s (still inexcusable!) behavior was a manic episode. She’s on a power trip.

      People use the word so casually but when you see a true manic episode you will never forget it.

      • Mash says:

        You know a lot of people confuse BP with BPD…not that I know her in the slightest to make such a serious accusation, but if we want to speculate on episodes and compare Davidson (who has BPD?)

  27. Smalltowngirl says:

    I 100% think Taylor cheated on Joe with Matty. Question…? Is about a relationship that never really went anywhere that she still thinks about and I do think it was about Matty and that when they got together to work on Midnights, she started thinking about the past/him a lot and at the same time, her relationship with Joe had stagnated. I don’t think she liked the quiet as much as he did and I think Taylor will always be a girl that needs a reason to leave. So her relationship with Joe is failing, she is working with Matty and thinking about their brief fling way back when and building it up in her head and things go from there.

    Is she really in love with this guy? No idea, but I think she built him up as a “what might have been” and when she became bored with her relationship with Joe, he became her exit strategy and I think she enjoys the drama and the intensity more than the quiet and calm.

  28. Plasma says:

    Happy people don’t need to talk like this about how happy they are though. Is she trying to convince us or herself? She’s really spiralling.

  29. brianne says:

    I’m guilty….I love me some Taylor music. Don’t really care who she dates except that I hope whoever it is makes her happy because happy Taylor albums are my favorite. That’s all I got 🙂

    • Polly says:

      Her boyfriend gets sexually aroused by videos of black women being ‘brutalized’ (that was the word that he himself used to describe it). He makes vile jokes about the holocaust and does Nazi salutes on stage. If you don’t care about that then that says a hell of a lot about you. But hey, as long as you’ve got some great tunes to listen to, who cares? Taylor fans really are the worst.

  30. SallyW says:

    Taylor is going to die alone, forever bitter, on a huge pile of cash, surrounded by 13 cats.
