Rina Sawayama Has Her Heels in Matty Healy’s Neck — Again

We love to see it.

UPDATE (July 11, 2023): Rina Sawayama calls out Matty Healy during another live set.

“It’s just funny how some people get away with not apologizing ever,” Sawayama raged during her NOS Alive set. “For saying some racist sh-t. For saying some sexist sh-t.”

Clearly frustrated with the 1975 singer’s lack of response, she makes her anger clear: ”Why don’t you apologize for once in your life without making it about your fucking self.”


Rina Sawayama calls out racist Matty Healy during a recent concert — here’s why.

At the Glastonbury Festival, queer pop star Sawayama loses her sh-t before performing her song “STFU.” “I wrote this because I was sick and tired of these micro-aggressions,” she exclaims. “This goes out to a white man that watches Ghetto Gaggers & mocks Asian people on a podcast,” she spoke in reference to Healy’s horrid comments towards Ice Spice.

“He also owns my masters,” she said. “I’ve had enough.” For those not familiar, the Japanese singer is signed to Dirty Hit Records, owned by Matty Healy’s band The 1975.

Whereas most musicians fear speaking out against men in the industry out of fear of being blackballed, Sawayama’s fans have come together in solidarity, denouncing Healy. On fan commented, “Great to see an artist calling out a gatekeeper for blatant racism. More power to you, @rinasawayama. ❤️”

For more on the PR nightmare that is Matty Healy… did Taylor Swift collaborate with Ice Spice to cover for her racist (former) boyfriend?
