Matty Healy has admitted he kind of wants to kiss guys.

The 1975 frontman is currently loved up with actress and model Gabriella Brooks but admitted he still thinks about locking lips with the same gender.

Speaking to Shortlist magazine, the 29-year-old revealed that while he isnt attracted to men in a sexual way, he has shared some same-sex smooches in the past – and would happily do it again.

Asked if hes attracted to men, Matty replied: Yes, but not in a carnal, sexual way.

The other sex is still attractive, its just that sex is weird, isnt it? Do you know what I mean?

Were not entirely sure what you mean, Matty, do expand…

Its, like, “Do I want to do blow jobs with a guy? No. Do I want to kiss a guy? Yeah, kind of…”

Mattys comments come after he revealed the first passionate kiss he ever saw as a child was between two male dancers, as he lingered backstage at one of his mother Denise Welchs shows.

The event, which he saw as sexy at the time, went on to change his perceptions of sexuality entirely and made him crave the same intimacy regardless of gender.

The singers upbringing also meant he was exposed to varying sexual orientations from an early age and he recalled how he used to look up to his parents successful gay friends.

Consequently, Matty associates those comfortable with their sexuality with freedom of expression and finds the openness engaging.

When I was a kid most of the people [around me] who were successful and doing what they wanted to do were gay, he explained.

I think I looked up to them, not as pariahs or outsiders, but as people who were truly themselves. Ive always found that engaging.

Last month, Matty also addressed his addiction to heroin and publicly apologised to his mother Denise for what he put her through during his darkest times.

The Chocolate hitmaker, who went to a rehab facility in Barbados in October 2017, spoke to Q Magazine about getting clean and insisted his addiction was completely not his mothers fault.

Addressing her sons comments earlier this month, Loose Women panellist Denise said: Im just proud of both of my children because they are following their dreams. Theyre both doing brilliantly.
