She’s got loads of vintage clothes, and we have the same body type, so I just wear her clothes. And as a cliché, I love the Sunset Marquis in Hollywood.
London, it’s where I know my way around and where I have the most time.
On Tuesday night, she sang her heart out on the Victoria’s Secret runway at the lingerie company’s annual fashion show.
But earlier this week she had time to spark up a “Twitter-mance” with 5 Seconds of Summer guitarist Michael Clifford. Michael, 19, sent Taylor a flirty heart-eyed emoji – which then prompted the “Blank Space” songstress to send Michael a belated congratulations to 5SOS on their big night at the AMAs on Nov. Obviously, Michael reciprocated, jokingly noting that Taylor’s performance that evening brought tears to his eyes. Her new song, “You Suck,” is allegedly about her past romance with Clifford – which, apparently didn't end well.
[laughs] But when I have six months off, I’ll be like, dude, get me on the road. Everybody loves that venue—there’s something about it. I collect everything that these kids give me, and I have to buy a suitcase every time I leave a country for other people’s emotional stuff that I take home and try to read through.
It wasn’t just the people, it wasn’t just the show, it was the view I had of what we’d achieved. But I think I put myself out there and I’m really honest, so to tell somebody not to be honest with me would almost be hypocritical.
Fans really put a lot into the idea of who you are. I wear a lot of Saint Laurent because it’s so classic rock star. So like leather, fringe, all the kind of archetypal silhouettes. I love Vetements, but I tend not to wear on stage ’cause the sleeves are too long and I can’t play the guitar.
The girl that I’m dating is probably going to dress me tonight.
Ever since 2012, when their early synth-tinged pop-rock sound drove teen girls in the U. mad, eclectic Brit band The 1975 have spent more time on the road touring than not. It’s made us see our fans and watch the cultivation of this community.
(Although they were kind enough to take some time to flex in summer’s best suiting for and a globetrotting world tour that’s taking the foursome from Malaysia to Michigan and finally London, which frontman Matty Healy calls home (it’s where his dog is, after all). Before he hit the massive summer festival stage, we caught up with the always stylish lead singer to find out how he likes to unwind after a good show, his creature comforts on the road (hint: you can find him at Nobu), and which designers are on his must-cop list. I’ve been on the road for like years; besides making the record, I’ve not not been on tour.
This weekend, Healy and his high school mates turned bandmates from Wilmslow, Cheshire, made a stop in Chicago to play Lollapalooza, a gig that turned out to be their largest U. To say the purity of touring is still there would kind of be lying.
I haven’t been at home for longer than three weeks in one stint over the past four and a half years. It’s when I want to get my washing and can’t, I resent it. The crowd is literally on top of you, peering down, and it’s like the roles are reversed a little bit. But I always say I literally tour with emotional baggage.
