The fact that we’ve been together for so long, meant that there was so much kind of, so many foundations to our relationships we weren’t worried about ego taking center stage and maybe losing who we were and we’ve kinda really invested in our relationships with one another and I think we’ve just realized that it really is about making music-at the risk of sounding like a hippie douche or whatever-it’s just about doing that because the number one album and stuff it’s all amazing and it is a real validation and it stands for a lot, but those kinds of things-statistical material things-they don’t really resonate like, you know, meeting people who your music has truly, truly affected or…it’s all about having a creative existence. That’s what I realized. That’s how I’ve changed. I used to chase things.

Matty : I was doing acting. I did some really good actin’ as well.

Interviewer: Were you the Christian Slater of True Romance?

Matty: I was the Christian Slater meets a young Leonardo Dicaprio-that’s what other people said that weren’t me so I don’t know.

if this is Matt Healy’s idea of ‘off the grid' I'm 100% OK with this.

HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII. It’s cold here today and I’m a little sleepy so this is definitely more of a chill/sitting in a bay window/AU where Zayn Malik has to open the local coffee shop so it’s probably 6AM and he has to ease into the day (we all know how much Zayn hates waking up)

Question from fan via Twitter: @shewayout @ROUGHofficial do you ever worry about the scale of which the 1975 has escalated & that people will get disinterested?

Matty: Yeah, but not really, because I can’t really worry about that. That’s totally not under my control and there’s no point in worrying about things I have no control over, that’s just a vicious circle. If we keep true to ourselves, we’ll control people’s perception of who we are and what we are doing and if people get bored of it then that’s hard, but that’s what happens but there’ll be plenty of people who aren’t.

Well if I could use art to make people be more conscientious and make people understand each other through looking into themselves, if I could make people more introspective… that’s what I’d really like to do. If I can connect on that kind of level and make people better people through indulge in myself, that’s good.

questiun:

Send me your name and I’ll make you a mini playlist that start with those letters

LET’S JUST THINK ABOUT HOW MATTY SAID HE’S PLAYING A MIX OF CHRISTIAN SLATER MEETS LEONARDO DICAPRIO IN THE NEW ROBBERS VIDEOS.

JUST THINK ABOUT THAT.

Most days, I wake up and think , ” UGHHHH I have to go to work” which is followed by:

But then I remember Harry Styles and Tumblr exist:
