Diplo, 36, just dipped in hot water with Zedd, 25 — again. While discussing his fellow music producer’s career that used to be “cool” in a new interview, the “Where Are U Now” deejay took things a step further when he claimed that Zedd’s “fake” relationship with his “I Want You To Know” collaborator, Selena Gomez, 22, was just to sell records!
Shade thrown. Diplo took major aim at Zedd’s personal life and career in an interview with Radio.com, saying, “I just think that [Zedd] came from such a cool place, and now he’s been pegged as a money-maker for a major label to do EDM, which to me isn’t even a genre. But they’ve pegged him for that, they’ve marketed him, even the fake relationship with Selena Gomez, all the things to sell records took away from the music.”
Hold up — fake relationship with Selena?! Sel and Zedd started becoming close in January at the Golden Globes, and then spent a ton of time together promoting “I Want You To Know” and its music video. They had amazing chemistry, and even when they weren’t together they would Skype all the time! Since they peacefully decided to go their separate ways in April, Selena has continued to show support for his album True Colors.
Let’s also not forget that Diplo is Katy Perry‘s ex, and like Katy, they have both feuded with Selena’s bestie Taylor Swift. So perhaps Diplo’s diss to Zedd and Selena was also expanding the bad blood! We can’t imagine Tay will be too happy about Diplo attacking her BFF.
Not only has Diplo slammed Zedd’s EDM career and personal life with Selena, but he also slammed the DJ’s entire new album, tweeting, “True Colors is such a pile of [crap]” on May 22. His tweet was deleted, and fortunately Zedd did not escalate any sort of feud with him. However, we wonder if he will respond to the Selena diss!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Selena and Zedd’s relationship was fake? Sound off below!
