It isn’t the first time that there’s been a beef between the Grammy-nominated DJ, Diplo, and the beloved Taylor Swift.
This cold war has been an ongoing matter in the recent years which has grabbed the attention of not only the general fans of both artists but several other celebrities as well.
The 36-year-old DJ encountered the wrath of the ‘Swifties’ in 2014 by calling on his fans to start a campaign to get the ‘Shake It Off’ hitmaker ‘a booty.’
And as expected, that didn’t end well for Diplo as he admitted.
‘You can’t step into that arena. That was something I was never prepared for … one of the biggest mistakes of my career was definitely f***ing with her.’
Diplo then further compared the pop-star’s fandom – who affectionately call themselves ‘Swifties’ – to that of the organized military forces of Kim Jong-Un. Now that’s a risky move, right?
Diplo dated the gorgeous and talented Katy Perry at a time. Katy and Taylor have a well-documented rift that everyone is well aware of.
With the latter’s track ‘Bad Blood’ from her best-selling album 1989 thought to be about the former, it was the talk of the town for several weeks.
However, Swift told The Telegraph: “I’m never going to talk about her in my interview. It’s not going to happen.”
The feud between Katy and Taylor ignited when three of Taylor’s dancers quit going work for Katy.
Taylor told Rolling Stone: ‘For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not.”
‘She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, “Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?”
‘Then last year, the other star crossed a line. She did something so horrible; I was like, “Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.” And it wasn’t even about a guy!’
‘It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.’
Diplo however, now seems to forget his quote which has some scratching their heads with confusion and curiosity.
‘All I know is don’t ever get into a feud with Taylor Swift. She has like 50 million people that will die for her.”
And he stepped up for a second feud by reportedly saying to Rolling Stone: ‘Music is in the hands of the kids. Streaming is literally what kids want to listen to over and over again.’
He allegedly continued, ‘The music doesn’t relate to them at all. I don’t think it ever did. They were only given that by radio and marketing budgets.’
He finished with: ‘I’m impressed with Post Malone. I can relate to him more than Taylor Swift.’
Soon after that, he had to disable his comment section on the Instagram account as it was filled up with snake emojis by Swifties.
Taylor’s song ‘Gorgeous’ which Diplo thinks people don’t want to listen to reach to the number 1 hit on Billboard’s Digital Song Sales chart.
This also granted Taylor her 14th number 1 on the chart successfully!
Lily Allen commented on the alleged leaked quote and Tweeted; ‘Maybe 40-year-old man should stop lecturing much younger and more successful woman about how to do her job.’
Diplo hit back comparing Swifties with Kim’s army calling them “Evil” and “Crazy.”
He said ‘they threatened to murder me and stuff. It’s really bizarre and disgusting. They’re the worst people in the world.’
He claims to be a “Fan” and a month later appeared to make up with Taylor as seen on his Instagram account.
She seemed to be using him as a chair as she enjoyed a drink at the 2015 Grammy’s After Party held at Chateau Marmont.
Taylor yet has to respond to this new comment, however.
In the last one, Taylor’s mate, her pop star friend Lorde went off at him saying: ‘Should we do something about your tiny penis while we’re at it hm. ‘
Diplo later mentioned Lorde in the interview: ‘I can go head-to-head with anybody. I don’t care who you are. I didn’t go after Lorde because she’s my friend and she’s a young girl and the one person I kept it cool with.’
Taylor is yet to respond, she may be planning her revenge but let’s just wait and see.
Diplo himself is well aware of this, quoting himself back just in time in an interview published.
He stated: ‘Taylor Swift is very strategic with her friends and enemies. And I know lots of secrets. I can’t divulge, but I know a lot of stuff about her. And I’m scared. I’m scared for my life.’
The Swifties glided in immediately to protect their beloved star and draw conclusions as well as comments regarding Diplo’s behavior.
Despite knowing and admitting all the facts as a result of his first feud, Diplo is still talking about Taylor to which Taylor fans have concluded that this might be the only way he gets attention.
