Habitual Taylor Swift-Basher Diplo Spoofs ‘Delicate’ Video
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but we're willing to bet Taylor Swift doesn't see it that way where Diplo's new spoof of her "Delicate" video is concerned.
Diplo, a frequent basher of Swift, published his own reinterpretation of the video for Swift's newest Reputation single Thursday (March 15) and delivered convincing evidence that his beef with the "Look What You Made Me Do" singer is far from over.
"I'm delicate," was all the artist captioned the video, in which he — sporting a blond ponytail — attempts to mimic some of Swift's moves from the video, including her famous split over the hood of a car in...some sort of precipitation (is that snow?).
And while some fans called him out for his mocking, others couldn't help but laugh.
"Nice remake, elegant and delicate moves, pure art," one wrote, while another noted "Why you so obsessed for her?"
Diplo has rarely made his disdain for Swift's fandom unclear — in 2015, a year after notoriously criticizing Swift's ass, Diplo accused Swift's followers of being total cretins. And in a 2017 interview with Rolling Stone, he took additional shots.
"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.
