AceShowbiz - It seems that Diplo never learns his lesson. After previously getting into a feud with Taylor Swift, the co-founder of Major Lazer called out the "Call It What You Want" songstress again in a leaked interview with Rolling Stone. This time, he took a shot at Taylor's track "Look What You Made Me Do".
When a topic about music streaming came out, Diplo didn't hesitate to call out musicians whom he thought are doing good and not. "Music is in the hands of the kids. Streaming is literally what kids want to listen to over and over again," he said. "They want to listen to 'Rockstar' and 'Bodak Yellow'. They don't want to listen to, like, 'Look What You Made Me Do'."
He continued, "That music doesn't relate to them at all. I don't think it ever did. They were only given by radio and marketing budgets. I'm impressed with Post Malone. I can relate to him more than Taylor Swift."
Swifties immediately took to Twitter to come to their idol's defense. A fan tweeted, "Diplo trying to lecture Taylor Swift on relatable music is like Trump telling Obama how to have manners." Another fan wrote on Twitter, "No one ever talks about or gives a s**t about Diplo unless he talk about Taylor Swift."
In 2014, the "Cold Water" DJ was in a feud with Taylor after starting a campaign called, "Get Taylor Swift a Booty." Even though he could only raise around $85, that didn't stop people from hitting back at him. Taylor's best friend, Lorde, was among them. "@diplo should we do something about your tiny penis while we're at it hm," she tweeted.
The feud eventually calmed down, and Diplo seemed to have regretted starting the campaign as he spoke up about it in an interview with British GQ Style in 2015. "[Taylor Swift] has like 50 million people that will die for her," the 38-year-old DJ said. "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."
