Matt Healy puts swift stop to Taylor rumours

The 1975's Matt Healy thinks it's "funny" that people believe he is dating Taylor Swift.

The frontman of indie band The 1975 had the celeb world buzzing at the end of last year when he revealed he'd swapped numbers with the singing sensation.

However, he insists it was all business and that any gossip about a blossoming relationship is laughable.

"It's fake. It's all b***dy fake. It's a farce!" he assured Australian radio station 2DayFM.

"Yeah, we met each other, we exchanged numbers in the same way that a lot of people in this kind of world do and we spoke occasionally."

Taylor, 25, has been busy promoting her latest album 1989, which became the best-selling record of 2014.

Meanwhile, 25-year-old Matt has had his hands full touring with his band, which also includes Adam Hann, Ross MacDonald and George Daniel.

"And she's the biggest pop star in the world and I'm in Australia. There's no like, relationship or anything happening. It's just funny how people really, really buy into that," the British star continued.

Taylor fuelled romance rumours last year by stepping out in a shirt bearing the band's name and heading to several of their gigs. Matt also got fans excited by joking he "wouldn't say no" to the pretty blonde.

However, Taylor's rep confirmed in December that she remains "happily single". And in recent interviews, the singer, who has dated the likes of Harry Styles and John Mayer, has insisted she will stay unattached for now.

"Dating or finding someone is the last thing on my mind, because I can't picture how it could work with the way my life is," she previously told British Vogue.

"I don't know how a guy is supposed to walk next to his girlfriend when there are 20 men with cameras, and he can't protect his girlfriend because that's the life she chose."
