Matty’s Interview with The Sunday Times Style

I wish I had a teenage daughter. Why? Because here I am with Matt Healy, the frontman of the 1975, who has just offered to take his shirt off in order to give me a tattoo tour. There’s the one dedicated to his nana; his mum, Denise “Loose Women” Welch, is on his foot; his dad, Tim “Auf Wiedersehen, Pet” Healy, is on his arm; and his brother, Louis, on the back of a calf; there’s the one dedicated to William Burroughs, the author of his favourite ever book, Queer; then there’s the one on the inside of his left wrist… of his passport number. “I got bored of being constantly woken up by a woman offering me a landing card while my tour manager, who always carries my passport, is conked out somewhere behind me. I thought it would be useful. It’s really all I need on a plane.

Welcome to the world of the 1975, whose second album, I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It (yes, really), went straight to No 1 in both America and the UK last year, and who won the best band award at the Brits in February. They have just announced that their third album, Music for Cars, will be out next year, and when we meet they are about to go on tour, kicking off in Mexico and ending in July at Latitude Festival in Suffolk, where they will headline alongside Fleet Foxes and Mumford & Sons. If you’re not familiar with their music — think Pete Doherty mixed with One Direction, maybe — it’s probably because, like me, you’re too old. That said, Mick Jagger, whom the band supported when the Stones played Hyde Park in 2013, is a huge fan — so fond of their hit single Chocolate, he has been known to put it on after dinner for guests.

Yeah, I remember that gig,” says the 28-year-old Healy, with a faint Northern accent. “It was before I had my eyes lasered and I wasn’t wearing my glasses. Pointless. There were 50,000 people there and I could only see about four of them, but out of the corner of my eye I could just make out this gyrating figure and it was Jagger dancing to Chocolate. Mick Jagger — can you f****** believe it?

NHL Playoff Teams Ranked by Name and Logo

Washington Capitals: Their logo has a hockey stick as a “t” that’s so clever! 8/10

Toronto Maple Leafs: Plural of “leaf” is “leaves”. Bad grammar, but nice logo so 5/10

Pittsburgh Penguins: Penguins don’t play hockey, that’s silly. (but if they did, that’s for sure what they’d look like) 7/10

Columbus Blue Jackets: Reminds me of yellow jackets, the wasp. But their logo is very patriotic and I hear they have a cannon. Truly embodies the American spirit 8/10

Montreal Canadiens: What is a “hab?” Still not sure about these guys 6/10

New York Rangers: I’m not 100% sure they’re not a government agency. 2/10

Ottawa Senators: Isn’t senators a U.S. thing? The old white dudes that pass laws? Not sure what they’re going for here 3/10

Boston Bruins: Logo looks like a basketball, which is deceiving 4/10

Chicago Blackhawks: Nope. Offensive. Would have been cooler if it was a real hawk. 0/10

Nashville Predators: That tiger’s teeth are far too big for its mouth. Looks menacing though. If I were an opposing team, I’d be scared of that. 7/10

St. Louis Blues: Music note? OH BLUES MUSIC I GET IT. That’s clever 7.5/10

Edmonton Oilers: Logo looks more like an oil company than a hockey team. 5/10

San Jose Sharks: SHARKS!? Hell yeah. Sharks are so cool 11/10

misfit-6uardian  asked:

"Yeah, I know I don't know you very well. But you seem more stressed out than you usually do." Scarlet lightly jabbed at the hooded hedgehog. "Maybe you could use a drink"

 Truth be told: he was always stressed. But at the moment, some time to wind down and drink did sound good-even if it was with a complete stranger. The other looked like a prime zoner,but their aura was much different. This guy he could like.

 “Yes, I suppose I could go for a round or two.”


My name is charmian. I am a 16 year old girl from England. I am 5'5 and weigh 10st 12pounds.

Puberty hit when I was 12. I went from being a flat chested, straight up straight down little girl to a 34C/D with hips. In what seemed overnight
I began to be bullied by girls, them saying that I was fat. I was also being sexualised by boys and men. I want to repeat, I was 12-13 years old and grown men were saying they would love to ‘smash my back doors in’ when I was walking down the street

My mom said not to worry, that girls will soon catch up with me, and I will love my body shape when I’m older. Except I never did learn to love my body.

In high school I got a skirt ban as my skirt was a little over my knees when my friends skirts were even shorter.

I began to hate myself, planning to starve so I could be skinny, so I wouldn’t get bullied or ridiculed anymore. But that didn’t work.

But now, I don’t care anymore, I know that I will always have boobs and hips and thunder thighs as I call them. Any amount of starving or dieting isn’t going to help me.

My name is charmian. I am a 16 year girl from England. I am 5'5 and weigh 10st 12 pounds.
And I am beautiful.

I’m 5'5, I weigh 10st 11lbs now and used to weigh 14st 7lbs.

It’s taken me just over a year to get this shape, by eating 3 meals a day with fruit in between, switching from white to brown (bread, pasta, rice), cutting out as much processed food I could, drinking  water and green tea as they’re all I really like, exercising regularly, cycling, walking, jogging, jillian michaels dvds, blogilates, and I would treat myself every 2 weeks with pizza, nandos, cookies, haribo - the lot! And not feel guilty, but just keep on going…
