Taylor Swift & Ice Spice Collab After Matty Healy's Racist Scandal

Taylor Swift Announces Ice Spice Collab After Rumored Boyfriend’s Involvement In Racist Commentary About Rapper


Taylor Swift Ice Spice Collab Matty Healy

Taylor Swift recently got social media buzzin’ after revealing that she’ll feature Ice Spice on a “Karma” remix.

The project is set to drop on Friday. In her announcement, she warmly called Ice Spice “THE ONE to watch” while proclaiming, “I’m a massive fan of this brilliant artist.”

However, given how Swift’s rumored boyfriendMatty Healy, a 34-year-old who sings for The 1975—was involved in distasteful remarks about Ice Spice earlier this year, some are side-eying the project.

Matty Healy Laughed At Ice Spice Being Called An "Inuit Spice Girl" & "Chubby Chinese Lady"

The scandal unfolded while Matty appeared on The Adam Friedland Show in February.

During his sit-down, Matty brought up Ice Spice and asked Adam if he was familiar with her. In turn, Adam called her an “Inuit Spice Girl” and a “Chubby Chinese Lady,” which humored Matty.

Then, the two men proceeded to mock Inuit, Chinese, and Hawaiian accents.


Matty Apologized After Ice Spice & Taylor Swift Embraced At The iHeartRadio Music Awards

As this commentary came in February, it’s important to note that Ice and Taylor were photographed together at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in late March.

While Taylor was still dating Joe Alwyn at this time, it nonetheless shows that Taylor and Ice appeared to be taking an interest in each other.

A month later, Billboard reported that Matty had apologized for his comments while cradling a half-drunk bottle of wine during a New Zealand performance.

After proclaiming he felt “a bit bad” and was “kind of a bit sorry,” he said he didn’t want Ice Spice to think he was “a d**k.”

“Ice Spice, I’m sorry. It’s not because I’m annoyed that me joking got misconstrued. It’s because I don’t want Ice Spice to think I’m a d**k. I love you, Ice Spice. I’m so sorry. I don’t want it to be misconstrued as mean. I don’t mind being a bit of a joker… but I am genuinely sorry if I’ve upset them because I f**king love them.”

Shortly after this apology, rumors about a potential romance between Matty and a newly single Taylor began to take off.

Check out what some fans had to say down below.


Despite these comments, Ice appears to welcome the opportunity with open arms.
