The It Gets Better Project is maybe Dan Savage’s most ingenious creation, and that’s really saying something given that I’m referring to the man who made Rick Santorum’s last name synonymous with a frothy mix of lube and fecal matter. The initiative Savage formulated in 2010 with his husband Terry Miller in the wake…
We cherish Diplo for his music, and we cherish Diplo for his propensity for getting into dudefights on Twitter. We most recently saw the DJ/producer Wesley Pentz getting scrappy at Pitchfork’s “balding music critics” for misreporting the timing of a stabbing in Vegas (it did NOT happen during a Jack Ü set), but now it…
In today’s Tweet Beat, Diplo has an epiphany, Courtney Stodden finds her niche and can you feel Ariana Grande’s love?
Diplo has had it up to here with music critics, specifically “balding music critics who can only review Future and Drake and terrible indie rock.” That’s very specific.
Jezebel Quickies is a new video series in which we get to know our favorite dynamic musicians, artists, actors and other creatives in a snap amount of time.
Two days ago, DJ and well-known dick Diplo posted to Instagram a photo of a fan at a concert—ostensibly Diplo-themed—holding a poster. On the poster is a picture of a towheaded toddler, flaunting a spectacular bowl cut. The words “I love ü Thomas West”—Diplo’s first and middle name is Thomas Wesley—are written beneath.
Diplo and Skrillex are having a banger summer, both individually (Major Lazer’s “Lean On”; Skrillex and Katie Couric’s “Untitled”) and together as Jack Ü. “Where Are Ü Now,” their chart-topping dance jam with Biebs, rides on the strength of Biebs’ lithe falsetto and a melancholy squiggle of synths; in the new video,…
Do you think god conspired to allow the passage of gay marriage on the same day as Shade Court to honor Dorian Corey in the manner that she deserves? I like to think so.
That there image above is a screenshot of Katie Couric, noted talk show host, and Sonny Moore, noted dance music producer, just cutting a hot new EDM track together in the stu. Chill.
In today’s Tweet Beat, Adrian Grenier looks very chill, Diplo misuses “shade” and Erykah Badu is still the flyest.
Diplo heard some of the criticism against Madonna for...being Madonna...in the “Bitch, I’m Madonna” video and figured he should say something. He probably went about it the wrong way.

In today’s Tweet Beat, let’s all pour one out with Diplo, Wiz Khalifa has a type and Brandi Glanville over-shares.
The wolf continues to howl at the moon, the fish continue to swim in the ocean, and Kate Moss continues to get disruptive when someone—this time a flight attendant on an airplane—refuses to bring her a goddamn drink.
TGIF, am I right? Oh, wait. Whatever! Here’s a brassy, jangling, ass-clap remix of “Bitch Better Have My Money” from noted female ally Diplo and Canadian producer Grandtheft—it is a jam, and sounds like pouring tequila in your best friend’s mouth (and your worst enemy’s, too).
This week marks the ten-year anniversary of MIA's Arular, an album which quite literally changed pop music and presaged the way the internet would create an avenue for marginalized genres across the globe to thrive outside their communities. Of course, part of this is due to MIA's collaboration with Diplo, who only…

GQ wrote about producer Diplo for its Legacy Project, which highlights important "musicians who matter." But somehow this nifty quote about Taylor Swift was edited out from the story right after it appeared online.
