Celebrate The 1975 frontman's birthday by looking at some of his most outrageous quotes.
Despite being born nine years apart, Matt Healy and Johnny Borrell have a lot in common. Both have birthdays in April, both front hugely popular bands, and both come out with some cracking one-liners.
So, what better way to celebrate Matt Healy's 28th Birthday than to look back at some of his outrageous and most Borrell-esque quotes and moments so far?
Examine the evidence here:
On his goals for The 1975's third record:
Speaking to Q Magazine about his plans for The 1975's third album, Healy cited two huge seminal albums from Radiohead and The Smiths, saying: “If you look at third albums, OK Computer or The Queen Is Dead, that’s what we need to do.”

On Radiohead copying claims:
Radiohead didn't copy The 1975 they're fucking Radiohead. They could steal my actual legs and I'd not be bothered anyways— matty (@Truman_Black) May 2, 2016
On being pretentious:
On gun laws in America:
In 2015, the Love Me singer shed light on a story which saw an 14-year-old muslim student arrested in America for making a clock, which his teacher deemed to look like a bomb. Healy's response was succinct, to the point, and absolutely priceless.
America - a country where white people can carry guns but brown people can't make clocks— matty (@Truman_Black) September 17, 2015
On violence towards him:
On shutting down his critics:
