“You hear that Meredith? Let this be a warning; you don’t fuck with Queen Butterscotch.”
Everybody has made dumb mistakes at work (flashback to me drinking the last of the Champale in the Dlisted lunchroom before realizing Gob Bluth-style that I’ve made a huge mistake), and for professional iTunes jockey Diplo, the biggest mistake of his career was coming for the head cheerleader of the recording industry Taylor Swift and her flatter than flat ass on Twitter back in November. Diplo told GQ back in January that his life had become a living nightmare thanks to Taylor Swift’s army of hardcore ride-or-die fans, and I guess he didn’t get all his thoughts out the first time, because he recently spoke to GQ Style (via Daily Mail) about it once again, this time adding that dragging Taylor Swift was a big mistake. Big. Huge!
“All I know is don’t ever get into a feud with Taylor Swift. She has like 50 million people that will die for her. It’s like an army that’s worse than North Korea. You can’t step into that arena. That was something I was never prepared for. One of the biggest mistakes of my career was definitely fucking with her.”
Uh huh. I totally believe you regret doing the thing that has gotten you 1000x more attention than you ever got pressing play in iTunes. Sure.
Of course, Diplo has since made up with Sprinkles Jong-un, but I’m sure he still nervously checks over his shoulder every time he enters an American Girl Doll store for Taylor Swift fans who might recognize him as the man who dared to insult their beloved leader.
And speaking of both DJs and Taylor Swift, Heat magazine (I’ll wait while you grab a handful of salt) says Tay Tay might be currently humping on Rita Ora’s former DJ piece Calvin Harris. Tay Tay reportedly went to see him perform in Las Vegas and was seen hanging out with him after the show where they talked to each other for 8 minutes. I know that an 8-minute conversation seems like a major reach, but to be honest, I’m pretty sure Taylor Swift considers anything over a 2-minute conversation with a boy to be a serious date.
