“So real,” a top comment reads in TikToker @king.asante’s video, which has garnered 356,000 views, detailing Banks’ posts. In the ongoing Taylor Swift and Matty Healy discourse, the 1975 frontman responded to fan uproar in a New Yorker profile published earlier this week. Along with the internet, Azealia Banks weighed in. 

In the series of posts, she cautioned the pop star’s romance, and also her love for James Mercer. “You should really tap James Mercer from the Shins…James Mercer is honestly one of the best lyricists ever”. 

Since the rumors of the duo’s coupling, Matty Healy’s emergence has garnered mixed reviews. “Does Matt Healy know that no one actually thinks the 1975 makes good music..,” Banks went on.

From his involvement in the offensive podcast on rapper Ice Spice to his onstage Nazi salute, social media is taking a close look at Healy. Banks, who has routinely shared her opinions and rants on mainstream pop culture, called out Healy’s privilege. “The outrageous small man white opinionated male musician thing works for Ariel Pink and Ariel Pink only.”

Matty Healy and Taylor Swift have yet to publicly respond to Azealia Banks.
