Diplo on Taylor Swift: I Know A Lot of Stuff About Her … And I’m Scared For My Life
In an interview with GQ, DJ Diplo, who studied at Temple University and started Philly’s Mad Decent Block Parties, opened up about his recent Twitter beef with Pennsylvania native Taylor Swift—you know, last fall when he made fun of her non-booty.
GQ: You couldn’t pay me enough money to piss off the Taylor Swift fans.
Diplo: Yeah. And I’m a pretty big fan. 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.
Then there was this head-scratching comment:
She has like forty million Twitter fans. Forty million! Yeah. It’s crazy. I’m a fan, though. Her powers—she’s big. She’s strong, bro. 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 she’s definitely … there’s definitely scary stuff going on. And I’m scared. I’m scared for my life.
