Diplo Calls Out Taylor Swift…Again
Three years after Diplo first went in on Taylor Swift, the DJ and producer is once again firing shots.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone (first previewed by Perez Hilton), Diplo said the ramifications of taking an anti-Swift stance have been damaging to his career. That considered, he made no qualms about going back in again.
"That was something I was never prepared for... one of the biggest mistakes of my career was definitely f------ with her," he said. "Music is in the hands of the kids. Streaming is literally what kids want to listen to over and over again. They want to listen to ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Bodak Yellow.’ They don't want to listen to, like, ‘Look What You Made Me Do.' That 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. I'm impressed with Post Malone. I can relate to him more than Taylor Swift,” he said.
Diplo has never held back his disdain for the Swift fandom — in 2015, a year after notoriously criticizing Swift's ass, Diplo accused Swift's followers of being the lowest form of human life.
"Like, Taylor Swift fans are really crazy," he said. "They threatened to murder me and stuff. It's really bizarre, and disgusting. They're the worst people in the world."
