5 Seconds of Summer kept it real during a recent interview with Howard Stern. Delving into their drinking habits (they don’t get buzzed for a performance but they do have Whiskey and Whitesnake Wednesdays) and nude photos (“Nothing else can come out that’s worse”), the Australian pop group — comprised of Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood, Ashton Irwin, and Michael Clifford — held nothing back when the topic of conversation turned to dating Taylor Swift, ignoring, for the moment, that Swift has expressed no interest in dating any of them.
“She feels a little destructive to me,” Irwin said about the pop star, known for turning her real-life relationships into monster hits. “I think it’s interesting, I think it’s cool, she’s a deep thinker. She has a lot of songs about some messed up relationships. I think some good songs would come out of it.”
While fans wait with bated breath for a potential Swift and 5SOS collaboration, here’s some more good news: the guys don’t plan on splitting up. When asked about creating solo albums, the band said they have “creative freedom.”
