Diplo just did an interview for Rolling Stone and it’s mostly about…Madonna? (Well, not mostly, but he does talk a ton about the pop superstar). Namely, the brash producer talks about why Madonna just can’t catch a break these days, and says “I don’t care” a lot. Here’s a taste:
On Madonna’s ageist critics: She created the world we live in. It already sucks to be a woman in the music industry, but to be a boss woman is even harder. She sold out her tour in minutes, but no one seems to want her to succeed — “Madonna, we’ve been there, done that, now we’re about Kim Kardashian.” Her song “Ghosttown” was a guaranteed Number One for anybody else, but she didn’t get a fair shot. With “Bitch I’m Madonna,” everyone said there’s no way it will go anywhere, but I’m like, “Screw it, it represents you more than anything.”
On his beef with Taylor Swift: We squashed it! I saw her at the Grammys and she was supernice and cool. Her fans loved the beef, though. That’s all they have — they don’t have, like, real things going on. It’s still startling when these artists pay attention to my Twitter. Like, Ed Sheeran unfollowed me when I said something about Taylor — I can’t believe these people even know who I am.
