Matty Healy of The 1975 isn’t very good at making friends. In early November, he angered metal fans by calling Metallica the “worst band of all time“. Now he’s facing backlash from his own fans, and even his own mom, for fondling himself while eating raw meat onstage.
Matthew Healy From The 1975 Fondles Himself And Eats Raw Meat Onstage
The controversial snack choice took place at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on November 4th. During a slow instrumental part of a song, The 1975’s frontman Matty Healy pulled out a slab of raw meat, got on his knees, and started eating it on stage.
Shirtless, he then began fondling himself shocking the audience filled with large groups of younger teens and their parents.
Even Matty Healy’s Mom Was Grossed Out
Matthew Healy’s bizarre on-stage behavior is nothing new for fans of The 1975. They are all too familiar with his onstage antics. But even Healy’s mother, actress and author Denise Welch, tweeted that she was shocked with what she saw him do onstage.
“I saw it too,” she wrote with three cry-laughing emojis in response to Rolling Stone reporter CT Jones who tweeted: “There is no way I could possibly explain to my 18-year-old self that I just watched Matty Healy grope himself onstage and eat a raw steak before crawling into a television.”
Why Did Matt Healy Eat Raw Meat Onstage? Was It All Just A PR Stunt?
New York concert goers weren’t the only one to witness the bizarre incident. The show was also being broadcast on Twitch as part of an Amazon Music UK event.
Is it me or does this all feel like a PR stunt? Let’s add it up. A new tour. A new album. A live stream. Add in a raw steak and some onstage self-fondling and you have an instant PR opportunity.
Don’t agree? Where did the slab of raw beef come from? When was the last time that you went to a concession stand in Madison Square Garden and ordered a raw steak? It was there for a reason.
And think about when the raw meat moment took place during the concert. It wasn’t improvised in the middle of a song with lyrics. Matt Healy’s raw meat buffet took place during a slow instrumental part of a song. He then got on his knees and slowly ate the meat while fondling himself. Finally, for dessert he did a few push ups while Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg was on a TV screen and then crawled through the TV.
Artsy and symbolic? Maybe. A cry for attention? Absolutely.
Here’s another video of Healy’s meat incident without the fondling:

Matty Healy, The 1975’s front man,
Was just eating raw meat on stage.
And it looked delicious.
Matty Healy, eating raw meat,
Oh God, he’s so stoned,
He’ll never get off stage!
Yah, call me crazy,
But watching you eat raw
Meat on stage
Was like watching
A kid dying
Just to kiss your beefy lips
I lay in your bed at night
I can’t take no more of this onstage thing
I wanna cuddle with you so bad
Come let me suck on your raw meat
Let’s make out while I get reckless
Baby I got a menu
But I’m still missing that one thing
‘Cause I’m not talkin’ bout love anymore
So tasty, so tender
Eating it raw,
My hand felt god-damn good.
