Diplo is in hot water with the fandom community again.
Leaked images and excerpts from the upcoming Rolling Stone November issue show the DJ talking about everything from rumored collaborations to Drake's creatives methods to the future of music streaming. This lead to the leaked excerpt below from the Mad Decent head honcho:
“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,’” he said when asked about the effects of music streaming. “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.

Diplo is the voice of a generation but Taylor Swift leads an army. While he is right about the future of streaming you never want to pick a fight with one of the biggest names in the industry. Back in 2014, Diplo tweeted: “someone should make a kickstarter to get Taylor Swift a booty.” Which is a post that sparked an army of backlash from fans which he later regretted. Fast forward to 2015 and Diplo said in a GQ interview, “All I know is, don't ever get into a feud with Taylor Swift.”
It is evident that he did not learn his lesson from that one…
Diplo trying to lecture Taylor Swift on relatable music is like Trump telling Obama how to have manners. https://t.co/PkoW2GFPQM

Lily Allen responds to Diplo shading Taylor Swift: “Maybe 40 year old man should stop lecturing much younger and more successful woman.” pic.twitter.com/5duwSKmm6j
