Diplo and Taylor Swift

Yes, according to Diplo.

At the end of last year, Diplo decided to poke fun at Taylor Swift, joking that someone should start a Kickstarter campaign to get Taylor "a booty".

Oh dear.

Understandably, the totally inappropriate comment caused the Swifties to leap to the defence of Taylor, as did her best friend Lorde, who quickly put Diplo in his place.

Then everything went pretty quiet for a while, until Diplo shared this photo on his Instagram in February. Was the feud over?

Well, according to Diplo, who's been speaking about it for the first time, the Major Lazer producer and DJ has woken up to the stupidity of his comment.

"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 f***ing with her."

Oh, and in case you're wondering why Diplo didn't go after Lorde, it's because they're cool.

"I didn't go after Lorde because she's my friend and she's a young girl and the one person I kept it cool with.

Which kind of makes sense because there was a time not long ago when Diplo and Lorde were total BFFs.
