Diplo Has Learned Nothing, Decides To Take Another Dig At Taylor Swift
Remember when Diplo tweeted that someone should crowdfund Taylor Swift a booty back in 2014? Oh, you tried to block that gross bit of social media use out your brain? Us too.

Well, it seems like Diplo isn't too afraid of Swifties, who came down hard on him over the above tweet, which he then compared to an attack from North Korea. Why? Because he's decided to publicly diss Taylor Swift once again. Or, more to the point, her music, which at least is a far more valid criticism.
Speaking to Rolling Stone about streaming services, the megastar producers didn't hold anything back when talking about Taylor Swift's divisive 'Look What You Made Me Do', but did show some love to Post Malone's 'Rockstar' and Cardi B's 'Bodak Yellow.'
“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.”
With all due respect to Diplo, it's hard to believe that a middle-aged man is as in tune with "what the kids want" as he thinks he is, but we understand his point nonetheless.
We're sure that Swifties across the globe are spamming Diplo's socials rn, and we're sure that Taylor Swift's seventh album will be a non-stop, petty, scathing response to Diplo.
Another day, another drama, drama.
