Matt Goss dumped his girlfriend because she was obsessed with social media.
The 53-year-old singer was frustrated that her partner was constantly using sites like Instagram to share details of his life because he was more private and wanted them to be in the moment.
Discussing the song ‘Saved’, from his new album ‘The Beautiful Unknown’, Matt told The Sun newspaper, âMy last girlfriend just wanted to be on social media all the time and it’s just not like what I want to live.
âI said, ‘Either we have a life together where we hold hands and go out and have dinner as a girlfriend or boyfriend or you post our life online.’ I realized that a life on social media wasn’t going to work for me.
âAnd so there’s a song on the album calledâ Saved, âwhich is about the pain you go through to find joy, and that good person.
âEven though the song is about adultery, it’s positive – how you broke my heart but saved my life.
“It’s a song about hope coming out of a dark situation.”
Matt rose to fame in the 1980s alongside his brother Luke Goss and friend Craig Logan in Bros, and despite being in the limelight for decades, he still feels “young.”
He said: “We were only young in Bros and that’s why I always feel young. I’m grateful the fans stayed interested.”
Matt and Luke saw a resurgence in popularity thanks to the 2018 documentary “Bros: After the Screaming Stops” and hitmaker “I Owe You Nothing” praised the film for helping it get closer to its twin.
He said, âMy brother and I are much closer because of this. He swept the nation. It is the most downloaded documentary in history and it was on every plane in the world.
âI can’t tell you how many people say, ‘It lets me know we’re not the only dysfunctional family.’ It was such a compliment because we were dysfunctional.
âWe had to relearn each other’s language. But me and Luke today? Well, we’re there for each other.
âSee, there’s a PlayStation over there, the hotel put one for me, because that’s how Luke and I connect.
“We’re here for each other. We’re for each other now.”
