Lauv is apologizing to Matt Healy of The 1975 for similar music videos.
On Thursday, Lauv released the video for “Tattoos Together” but many pointed out that the video was nearly the same as The 1975’s “Sincerity Is Scary”.
Lauv later shared a text conversation with Healy which he captioned “i wanna be one to own up to s**t, i’m sorry.”
It started with a message from Lauv, “hey man. i just put out a video for my new song and saw comments about similarities to the sincerity is scary video. i honestly hadn’t seen the video till now, but after seeing it im completely horrified and wanted to reach out and apologize directly before i said anything online. as somebody who’s genuinely a massive fan and who respects your artistry so much, please believe me when i say this was an honest mistake. if you have any strong feelings about me saying something specific or anything, i want to do whatever i can to make this right.”
And it turns out it didn’t bother Healy one bit.
“Ur moms a hoe. OMG. Lol Bro honest idgaf if anyone is giving you s**t just post this screenshot,” he responded.
The two then continued to talk about their love of music.
