Muse frontman Matt Bellamy reportedly voted for Brexit.
In June, the UK voted whether to stay in the European Union. The leave campaign won the referendum, provoking protests and petitions for a second referendum.
The High Court recently ruled that the government cannot trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty – which would formally begin negotiations to leave the EU – without a vote of Parliament. The government have appealed the decision.
Bellamy reportedly attended a CNN party last night (November 8) to mark the US Presidential election. The Sun journalist Harry Cole tweeted that he had learned that Bellamy “voted for Brexit”. The Independent‘s Jacob Stolworthy also seemed to suggest this in a separate tweet.
Muse’s PR tells NME of the reports: “We have no comment to make”.
So, what have we learnt so far tonight? At the CNN party it turns out that @MattBellamy, the lead singer of Muse voted for Brexit. ?

Meanwhile, Bellamy recently shared a photo of himself meeting Hillary Clinton, along with the caption: “Trump can’t trump that”.
This comes after the band’s live director has recently revealed that the band’s plans for their next world tour involve them ‘levitating on magnets’. The band have also revealed that they plan to tour select US festivals next year, before returning to the studio to record new songs.
