Rina Sawayama spoke out against 1975’s Matty Healy during her powerful 60-minute set at the 2023 Glastonbury Festival on Saturday night. The actor and singer dedicated her song “STFU!” to her label mate without calling him by his name. Instead, she was referring to the controversial comments Healy made during his February appearance on “The Adam Friedland Show” podcast.

“I wrote this next song because I was tired of these micro-aggressions,” Sawayama said. “So tonight this song goes to a white guy who watches Ghetto Gaggers and mocks Asian people on a podcast. He also owns my masters. I’ve had enough!”

Sawayama’s “STFU!” is an anthem about someone reaching their breaking point with a person who refuses to listen. The lyrics include lines like, “How come you’re not expecting me / Get mad when I’m mad? / You’ve never seen it, though I know I’m not the only one / Why don’t you respect me?/ expecting fantasies/leaving our reality.”

POPSUGAR reached out to Sawayama and Healy’s label Dirty Hit for comment on the singer’s claim that Healy owns her masters, but did not receive an immediate response. Dirty Hit is run by Jamie Oborne, who also manages The 1975.

During his appearance on the podcast, Healy made derogatory and racist comments about Ice Spice, including misidentifying her heritage. In the same episode, he also discussed watching pornography that demeans and abuses black women. Sawayama’s comments on Glastonbury are part of a growing discourse surrounding Healy’s behaviour.

Healy then apologized to Ice Spice at a show in Auckland, New Zealand in April. “It was never my intention to hurt anyone,” he said videos shared on social media. “I’m sorry if I offended you and, Ice Spice, I’m sorry. It’s not because I’m annoyed that my joke was taken the wrong way, it’s because I don’t want Ice Spice to think I’m ad*ck. I love from you, Ice Spice. I’m so sorry. I don’t want anything misinterpreted as mean. I don’t mind being a bit of a prankster…but I don’t want to be seen as mean.”
