If The 1975's Matt Healy doesn't like something, chances are he ain't gonna bite his tongue. After recently calling out One Direction over their 'artistic integrity' and supposedly yappin' on about Taylor Swift in new track 'A Change of Heart,' he's only gone and had a pop at the entire Kardashian klan. Oh gahd.
Yup - in The 1975's tune 'Love Me' our Matty refers to the family as the 'Karcrashian' bunch; and he reckons it's all down to this 'superficial oversaturation' they're promoting in the 'new kind of media world.'
Matty explained the lyric to radio.com, saying: "I think if you are in that family you have to at least appreciate that you are representative of the culture that you kind of created. You are the figurehead for what people are gonna talk about. When they're talking about the kind of saccharine, superficial oversaturation of the new kind of media world, who is the ultimate person? Probably one of the Kardashians.
"And 'A Karcrashian panache and a bag of bash for passion,' I'm talking about that attitude, that desire, the desire to be one of those people and all of the girls now who want to look like those girls, and want to be like those girls. I don't know where the substance is, but there's something going on.
And I don't wanna start slagging those people. I also don't wanna start slagging off anything to do with Kanye.
"I love Kanye. But I think you can't live in the world today and not appreciate what someone means when they coin a phrase like that."
So not slagging 'em or anything, just sayin'. Cool.
What d'ya make of Matty's comments, eh? Agree? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape or something. That'd be nice.
