From his lavish studio to very famous friends, here is a look inside The 1975’s Matty Healy’s swanky life:

He is really good friends with Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers

Matty Healy and the newly engaged Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers all seem to be the best of friends. There are loads of photos of Paul and Matty at Phoebe’s shows while she has been on tour as well as taking some of the greatest photos of Paul Mescal on film. We as a nation have got to thank Matty Healy for what he has done for us Normal People girlies.

Matty Healy also inadvertently announced Phoebe Bridgers and Paul Mescal were engaged, a whole month before it was reported as official. In October 2022, Matty wrote in a tweet: “I want to be Phoebe Bridgers. Imagine being such a lesbian icon that you just get engaged to the sexiest straight man on earth. Truly a based god.”

Phoebe also featured in The 1975’s music video for I’m In Love With You. It’s all very iconic if you ask me.

His house featured in the background of Netflix’s Top Boy

Netflix’s Top Boy is filmed in and around East London, with the main action taking place in the Isle of Dogs. In an unlikely cameo, Matty Healy’s home can be seen in the second episode of the show.

During the Covid-19 lockdown, Matty isolated in a quaint Norfolk cottage with its own studio

Matty spent time away from the spotlight during 2020 and lived in Norfolk during lockdown and spent time to make music. Speaking with The Sunday Times, he revealed he was isolating at a cottage in Norfolk with his now ex-girlfriend FKA Twigs and song-writing partner George Daniel. In an interview with Capital FM, Matty gave a tour of his home studio in Norfolk.
