She has never been known as one to hold back when it comes to sharing her views, so we're not surprised to hear that singer M.I.A took a few swipes in her latest interview, for Rolling Stone magazine.

We are, however, pretty shocked by what she has to say about her DJ ex, Diplo who, according to the Paper Planes singer, was insanely jealous of her success.

Asked about the early milestones in her career, the 39-year-old – who dated Diplo on and off for five years – said that he "sh*t on every good thing that was happening" for her.

"I just didn't enjoy it because if I was on the cover of a magazine, he'll be like, 'What do you want to do, like, be on the dentist waiting room table? Like, is that what a magazine is for? It's corny. Like, don't do magazines,'" she recalled.

She also recounted a terrifying incident where Diplo, real name Thomas Wesley Pentz, smashed up her hotel room out of rage after she got signed by a major label.

"When I got signed by Interscope, he literally smashed my hotel room and broke all the furniture because he was so angry I got picked up by a major label, and it was the corniest thing in the world that could possibly happen…So the whole two years I was with him, I just let him dictate," she added.

She says that it is only now that she realises it was jealousy that was driving her ex on.

"He couldn't wait to be Taylor Swift's best friend and date Katy Perry. But at that time I believed him. I just felt like he was right, and he was something of a political, righteous person with some values. I didn't realize it was just jealousy," she said.

Wow, that is quite the revelation. While the pair have always insisted that they are good friends, we reckon Diplo may not be too happy to learn that the truth is now out there.



It’s common knowledge that Taylor Swift and Katy Perry don’t exactly see eye to eye anymore.

The former friends are reported to have fallen out over a string of incidents including Katy dating Taylor’s ex, John Mayer and apparently stealing her back-up dancers too. Ouch!

Things got even more tense between the ladies when Katy Perry called her 'Regina George in sheep's clothing' while her boyfriend at the time, Diplo, also mocked Taylor publically

Now, Taylor Swift has pretty much confirmed that things are not well between them, by saying that she will NEVER talk about Katy in an interview.

Talking to The Telegraph, Taylor said: “I’m not giving them anything to write about. I’m not walking up the street with boys, I’m not stumbling out of clubs drunk. But I’m never going to talk about her in my interview. It’s not going to happen.”

She says so much while saying so little. Why can’t these two just put their differences behind them?! 



DJ, producer and rapper, Diplo has got a lot to say about Taylor Swift’s fans – and none of it is flattering.

Not too long ago, Diplo made comments about Taylor’s appearance, namely her bum.

The situation got somewhat out of control when Lorde intervened, defending her BFF with a hilarious comeback on Twitter. However, it looks as if Lorde wasn’t the only one who defended Taylor, and Diplo says he has been a target of online hate for some time now: “Taylor Swift fans are really crazy. They threatened to murder me and stuff. It’s really bizarre, and disgusting. They’re the worst people in the world.”

Shockingly, Diplo also revealed how some of Taylor’s fans had even targeted his children, saying that despite this, he is a fan of the singer: “And I’m a pretty big fan. But they’re like ‘I wish your kids had Down syndrome’. They’re so evil.”

The rapper also made some very cryptic comments about Taylor, that we're not sure she will appreciate, saying: "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 I'm scared. I'm scared for my life." Eek – sounds like a serious conspiracy!

Diplo had been linked to Katy Perry for some time but it is believed that she has since reunited with her ex-boyfriend, John Mayer.

Let’s hope the Swifties can forgive Diplo for slating Taylor’s bum – after all, she knows she’s fab! 

It isn't known if Taylor is aware of what has been happening and the frankly shocking extent of online abuse suffered by Diplo, but given that she has such a close relationship with so many of her fans it wouldn't be all that surprising if she addressed it. 


After Katy Perry was spotted on a dinner date with John Mayer in LA last week, speculation has been rife that the couple might be rekindling their romance.

Now sources close to the star have confirmed that the pair are indeed back on. "Katy is giving John another chance because she feels like there could be something there," said an insider.

The pair first began dating in 2012 shortly after Katy's divorce from English comedian Russel Brand. Their on-off relationship lasted almost two years but the couple split in early 2014, after Katy allegedly caught John cheating on her with fitness instructor Lauren McHale. Ouch.

But the singer seems willing to put the past behind her, despite warnings from pals that she is moving too fast. "Although her friends have warned her to be careful, she is already ignoring all of the red flags. She is not listening to anyone and is going into this full force," said the source.

John apparently began pursuing Katy "relentlessly" late last year after discovering she was dating music producer Diplo. Seeing the new couple together drove John "crazy," the source revealed.

The reunited couple have been spotted together numerous times in recent days. As well as last week's dinner date, Katy and John were also reportedly spotted kissing and holding hands at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood over the weekend.

We hope John has learnt his lesson this time around!



Katy Perry’s boyfriend Diplo is a dad again!

The musician has welcomed a son, Lazer, with his ex partner, Kathryn Lockhart it has been confirmed.

Lazer is the second son for the former couple, who are also parents to four-year-old Lockett. 

Katy and Diplo began dating in May of this year, when Kathryn was two months pregnant.

Things have started to take a bit of a downhill turn for the star however, after he took on Taylor Swift – and the world reacted badly. Obviously, it’s Taylor Swift!

Diplo took things a bit too far when he accused the singer of having no “booty” and has now hit back at Lorde who jumped in to defend her friend, accusing Diplo of having a tiny d**k.

Katy’s boyfriend tweeted: “When I’m not being bodyshamed by a teenager we are collaborating on cool music.”

Sorry, did he just say HE was being bodyshamed?!

We think this whole thing may have started with you Diplo – don’t give it if you can’t take it!

Even Russell Brand was better than this guy…come on Katy!



It's common knowledge that T-Swift and Katy Perry are not the best of buds, but things have been relatively calm between the pair for the last couple of months.

Now though, it seems the feud has gotten out of hand once again.

In a seriously catty move, Katy's reported boyfriend Diplo took to Twitter yesterday to rant about Taylor's lack of "booty." 

Katy Perry has apparently been seeing the DJ for the last couple of months, and she's definitely got him on her side, if this latest development is anything to go by!

Things are getting personal!

Diplo then took things one step further and actually set up a crowd-funding account to raise money for Tay-Tay's bum… which attracted 17 supporters and a sum total of $45. We somehow doubt Taylor will be taking the money!

Back in September, Taylor opened up to Rolling Stone about her ongoing bad blood with the Friday Night singer – though she didn't specifically call Katy out. "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not,” she said in the interview, discussing an unnamed star.

“She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'”

Taylor also admitted that the mystery star had "done something so horrible" to do with "business." It's thought that Katy poached some dancers from Taylor's crew to use on her own tour.

Well, we had hoped the two could patch things up but after this latest diss we aren't so sure!



Katy Perry and boyfriend Diplo have called it quits – because Katy didn’t want to settle down.

The 35-year-old American DJ – real name Thomas Pentz – apparently called time on their romance when it became clear that they ‘wanted different things’.

Katy is said to have freaked out when her boyfriend told her he wanted to introduce her to his parents.

The 28-year-old Roar singer thought this was way too much, way too soon!

The couple were first linked during the Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival in early April, before being spotted getting cosy at the Amazing Spider-Man 2 after party in New York.

Katy is still feeling raw following her February split from on-off boyfriend John Mayer, and just wasn’t ready to take it the next stage with Diplo.

Maybe being single for a while is the best thing for this pop star!
