Diplo was featured in GQ’s February 2015 list of “musicians that matter,” addressing his little feud with pop princess Taylor Swift.
Swift’s BFF Lorde defended her pal and dissed Diplo’s “tiny penis.” (
The 36-year-old DJ told GQ in his new interview, “Taylor Swift is very strategic with her friends and enemies. And I know lots of secrets. I can’t divulge, but I know a lot of stuff about her. And I’m scared. I’m scared for my life.”
He also said that her fans are “really crazy”. He adds, “They threatened to murder me and stuff. It’s really bizarre, and disgusting. They’re the worst people in the world.”
Diplo, whose real name is Thomas Pentz, said he is a fan of Taylor’s music but not to that extreme.
“Yeah. And I’m a pretty big fan,” he revealed. “But they’re like ‘I wish your kids had Down syndrome.’ They’re so evil. I dissed Lady Gaga before, and the gays were never even this mean. They’re funny. These people are like mean-spirited, evil human beings. I’m not a politician. I shouldn’t have to be under the microscope for people like that.”
Diplo said he was frustrated about making headlines for what he meant as a joke.
He stated, “It’s really dumb. So many great albums came out that week, and all people talked about, on all the big press, was Me vs. Lorde, and Kim Kardashian’s butt.”
He adds that he and Lorde were cool. “It’s funny,” Diplo explained, “because me and Lorde, we’re actually friends, and it was a funny, in-jest conversation. So many tabloids used it to make it story, when it was not.”
