In 1975, Matty Healy stopped kissing fans out of respect for “queen” Taylor Swift – months before the two were rumored to be dating.
The British soloist told the audience of one of her group’s January concerts that she abandoned the bold move when she joined him on stage to perform a collaboration.
According to the resurfaced TikTok footage, Healy said, “I’m not kissing anyone in front of Taylor Swift, show some respect.”
“Not in front of the Queen.”
The “Style” singer was then asked if she could sing, and she covered “The City” from their self-titled debut album, The 1975.
Before Swift’s surprise appearance, Healy regularly asked permission before kissing the lucky participants.
The Sun reported Wednesday that Healy, 34, and Swift, 33, are “infatuated” despite dating less than two months. Rumor has it that their reunion comes nearly ten years after their brief romance.
“It’s very early days, but it feels right,” said an insider. “First, they came out very briefly, almost 10 years ago, but the timings just didn’t work.”
The report also claimed that “All Too Well” singer and boyfriend of six years Joe Alwyn “actually broke up” in February, meaning there was “absolutely no transition” between the actor and the “Chocolate” singer.

The new couple are reportedly planning to make their love public by performing together at Swift’s Nashville concert this weekend; however, The 1975 is performing in the Philippines on Thursday.
“Both Matty and Taylor have been on tour for the past few weeks so there’s been a lot of FaceTiming and texting, but can’t wait to see him again,” an insider said.
Representatives of Healy and Swift, who have previously dated models Gabriella Brooks and FKA twigs, did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
Just last week, it was rumored that Swift had spoken to F1 driver Fernando Alonso.
News of Swift and Alwyn’s split came in early April, when a source told Page Six privately that the relationship had “finished its course”.
“It wasn’t dramatic,” the source said.
