Call it what you want, but Diplo is reigniting his feud/beef/vendetta with Taylor Swift. The popular DJ did not have very nice things to say about Taylor, just days before the release of her new album Reputation. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Diplo pretty much called the pop star unrelatable — and not what the kids are listening to these days. Ouch.
"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,'" he said in the issue that was leaked early by Perez Hilton. "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.”
So we think it's safe to say Diplo, 38, is on team Kimye… Back in 2014, Diplo tweeted, "Someone should make a Kickstarter to get Taylor Swift a booty." Her BFF Lorde came to her defense, responding to the diss, "Should we do something about your tiny penis while we're at it hm." A few months later, he revealed he regretting targeting Taylor and her army of Swifites.
"All I know is don’t ever get into a feud with Taylor Swift," he told British GQ Style. "She has like 50 million people that will die for her. 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–king with her."

In his defense, Diplo did give Taylor, 28, some props after her fans called him out on social media. "Calm down swifties 'All Too Well' is one of my fav songs." Taylor has yet to respond to the comments.
