In a recent interview with Variety, Ice Spice opened up about Matthew Healy, a member of the popular band the 1975, and his controversial stint on the Adam Friedland Show podcast. Ice Spice didn’t mince words when she shared her initial reaction to the podcast episode, which caused quite a stir. The episode, hosted by Adam Friedland and Nick Mullen, had taken a troubling turn as they made racially insensitive comments about the rapper and even attempted to mimic what they perceived as her accent. All the while, Healy could be heard laughing along.
“I couldn’t help but be puzzled when I listened to that podcast,” Ice Spice recalled. She specifically referenced the moment when she heard the phrase ‘chubby Chinese lady’ and couldn’t help but question its meaning. She humorously pointed out, “First of all, let’s get it straight – I’m thick, not Chinese! I mean, come on! But then, they did issue an apology or something like that.”
Interestingly, Ice Spice admitted that, at the time, she didn’t pay too much attention to the controversy. She maintained a rather nonchalant attitude about the whole situation. However, fate had a funny way of bringing them face to face again. Ice Spice revealed, “That’s the funny part – I bumped into him at the Jean Paul Gaultier party a couple of days ago, and he was like, ‘Hey, you OK?’ And I’m like, ‘Of course, I’m good.’ He actually went ahead and apologized to me several times. So, we’re all good now.”
Healy’s guest appearance on The Adam Friedland Show initially saw the light of day in February but has since been scrubbed from most major podcast platforms. In April, during a 1975 concert in New Zealand, Healy took the opportunity to address the situation directly. He confessed to his tendencies to take things too far, especially when faced with a large audience. In an effort to make amends, he declared, “I don’t want Ice Spice to think I’m a dick. I love you, Ice Spice. I’m so sorry.”
This unexpected twist in the tale reveals that sometimes, even in the world of entertainment, apologies can mend bridges and lead to unexpected reunions.
