Ice Spike on the Matty Healy Controversy
Speaking to Variety for a new interview, Ice Spice spoke out about her thoughts on the Matty Healy controversy. She said, “When I had heard that little podcast or whatever, I was so confused. Because I heard ‘chubby Chinese lady’ or some s— like that, and I’m like, ‘Huh? What does that even mean?’ First of all, I’m thick. What do you mean Chinese? What? But then they apologized or whatever. And the whole time, I didn’t really care.”
Ice Spice further added that she had a run-in with Matty Healy at SSENSE’s Jean Paul Gaultier event during New York Fashion Week a few weeks ago. She said, “But that’s funny because I saw him at the Jean Paul Gaultier party a couple days ago, and he was like, ‘Hey, you okay?’ and I’m like, ‘Of course.’ He apologized to me a bunch of times. We’re good.”
