We would never advocate for hounding celebrities out and about, but in this case, gotta say, we salute citizen journalism (aka paparazzi). Matty Healy, lead singer of The 1975, was just asked how he feels about his ex Taylor Swift’s blockbuster album The Tortured Poets Department, which fans have speculated is largely about their relationship.

For those who haven’t listened or caught up yet, TTPD covers a lot of ground, being a double album, but one idea referenced in many songs is a passionate but all-too-brief affair that left the singer heartbroken. It’s Swift’s first album since her split from longtime boyfriend Joe Alwyn, and over the course of recording it, she dated and split from Healy.

But no, she doesn’t “just write about her exes,” there are also songs about childhood, fame, self-loathing and depression! The Swiftoverse is expansive!
