Diplo (please resist the urge to start twerking) got really real about his frenemy Zedd. He basically said that Zedd used to be cool, but now he's a sellout and everything is just used to sell albums. He also says that Selena Gomez and Zedd only dated as a publicity stunt a la Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Allegedly, the music label wanted them to fake a relationship to promote their song, I Want You To Know, and Selena Gomez wanted to fake a relationship to manipulate Justin Bieber. Two birds, one fairly transparent stone. Zedd looks like a less gay Frodo, so the theory isn't totally ridiculous.
Then Diplo said that Zedd just makes EDM, which "isn't even a genre." Ummmm excuse me, non-recognizable songs with an insane beat that inspire a dance floor make out is most definitely a genre or at least a theme. He also described Zedd's new album with the poop emoji. Classy and subtle. Last time Diplo went after another musician it was the kickstarter to crowd fund Taylor Swift's ass implants and it didn't go so well, so let's see how he handles round 2.
