The 1975's Matt Healy says rock stars now are very self-aware

"Somebody Else" hitmakers The 1975 have enjoyed a successful rise to fame, but frontman Matt Healy has revealed that it's tough being in the public eye as your every move is scrutinised. 

Healy told America's Rolling Stone magazine that "the days of being a rock star without any kind of self-awareness are dead" and explained that you can't do anything now without someone photographing or documenting it.

He confessed that it's impossible now to "get away with anything": "The days of being able to get away with anything and be glorified for it are dead. Thanks to the Internet, everybody's got everybody else's number. How do you go out and be fucking Jim Morrison? The world isn't gonna allow for that, so [stardom] needs to incorporate humility and self-awareness – or, in my case, some awkwardness."
