A few years ago Diplo learnt that it’s never a good idea to start a feud with Taylor Swift but it seems he’s forgotten because he’s fired even more shots.
In 2014, he asked his fans to start a campaign to get Swift “a booty” following the release of the ‘Shake It Off’ video and faced the wrath of Swift’s fans.
He then told GQ Style, “don’t ever get into a feud with Taylor Swift,” comparing her fans to, “an army that’s worse than North Korea.”
It seems he’s ready to take on the “army” once again because he’s now taken a shot at Swift’s ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ off her forthcoming album Reputation.
Speaking with Rolling Stone (via Perez Hilton) about streaming habits the producer 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.”
These latest comments are no doubt going to stir Swift’s fans again. It also doesn’t help matters that they’re out in full force right now, anticipating the release of Reputation this Friday.
Diplo should also be wary of Swift because if we’ve learnt anything from her feuds with Kanye West and Katy Perry, she doesn’t give up easily.
