Who could forget about this bad blood?
While discussing his philosophy on sharing on social media, Diplo told the magazine, “I don’t take it that seriously. When I first started using social media, it was a big joke for me. On Twitter, I was an unabashedly crazy person. And I didn’t realize that there was power in those words. I would make fun of other artists, and that really came back to hurt me in the end.”
And no, he didn’t leave a blank space. “Like I had huge beefs with Lorde and Taylor Swift at the time,” Diplo continued. “And I thought it was so funny, but you know, people hold you accountable for your Twitter in such a strange way. It’s not real life. Sarcasm doesn’t come through on social media.”
“But at least on Instagram, I just try to be silly, because I don’t really want to take selfies all day long and show off how cool I am,” he added. “Every day, I’m learning how to use my Instagram, to be honest.”
