Healy concluded that dating Swift would have been “emasculating” in 2016 while speaking to Q magazine (via Elle).

“It’s just interesting to me how interested the world is about Taylor Swift,” he said. “The reason I mention that is because if I had (properly) gone out with Taylor Swift, I would’ve been, ‘F—– hell, I am not being Taylor Swift’s boyfriend.

I personally have a lot of respect and admiration for her. Why would I not?”

He added, “I didn’t even date Taylor, but the media’s incessant and brutal obsession with her has meant that even a guy who DIDN’T DATE HER has been so battered by their never-ending questions that he’s inevitably said something that can be lifted and molded into something that resembles ‘shade’. It’s really sad.”
