 Ed Sheeran & Matty Healy

Matty Healy doesn’t want any misunderstanding with Ed SheeranThe 1975 singer recently clarifies in an interview with The New York Times that he was offered — and declined — an “insane” amount of money to open for the pop star on a stadium tour.

“I just got offered a four-month tour next year of stadiums with the biggest singer-songwriter in the world that would’ve made me money that I’ve never even seen or heard of in my life,” he said in the interview.

Though he didn’t initially name Sheeran, the interviewer asked if that was who he was referring to. “Yeah. And I got offered to be main support and do whatever I want,” Healy said. “Think about the money you think I’m getting offered – it’s not just offered, it’s what he can afford because of what he makes for shows – and then just triple it. It’s insane.”

“The thing that’s stopped me just doing that is because – I don’t care. It’s not worth it,” he added. “Not because I don’t like Ed Sheeran. I think he’s, in a lot of ways, a genius, and he does what he does better than anybody else. But opening up for somebody and not just being real, that’s the kind of stuff I think about.”

After the interview was published, Healy clarified his comments on Twitter. “Just to be clear I have mad respect for Ed Sheeran and I didn’t decline sharing a stage with him I just wanted to do our own shows instead and he’s always been so nice to me personally and publicaly [sic] so don’t start a twitter thing for fun,” he wrote.

The 1975 are gearing up to release their fifth album, Being Funny In a Foreign Language, on October 14. A few weeks later, they head out on a North American tour.
