AceShowbiz - Matty Healy low-key owned up to his mistake when performing in London over the weekend. When addressing his past controversial remarks onstage, The 1975 frontman subtly admitted that he was wrong.
"I was always trying stuff and some stuff I got right and some stuff I got wrong," the 34-year-old said. "But you know what, there's a lot of things that I've said, jokes that I've made, that I would take back. You know what, there's probably a couple of f**king songs that I'd take back if I had the choice."
Matty went on to let fans know that his "favorite art" is about making his fans "laugh and feel good." He also noted that he's not "a nonchalant person," adding, "I'm not somebody who takes things for granted, so I was excited. The 1975 isn't a dry band - there's a lot of irony in it."
Concluding his message, Matty declared, "I get a bit excited." The "It's Not Living (If It's Not With You)" crooner then stated, "And you know what, I'm f**king proud of myself."
Matty didn't mention which controversy he was referring to. However, the musician faced criticism recently over his response on "The Adam Friedland Show". At that time, Adam and co-host Nick Mullen also made a comment about Ice Spice, calling her an "Inuit Spice Girl" and "chubby Chinese lady" while mocking Chinese and Hawaiian accents.
Matty, who was a guest in the episode, laughed along and did not stand up for the "Princess Diana" raptress. He also encouraged the hosts to do an "impression" of a Japanese Nazi.
Matty has issued an apology though, admitting he's "kind of a bit sorry" for the Ice Spice comments. "I don't want anything like that misconstrued to be mean," he said during a concert in New Zealand. "I don't mind being a bit of a joker... It's OK for me to be, like, a trickster or whatever, but I don't want to be seen as, like, being barmy."
