Earlier this month, Diplo had tweeted that “someone should make a kickstarter campaign to get Taylor Swift a booty”, leading to Lorde jumping to Swift’s defence and replying: “Should we do something about your tiny penis while we’re at it hm.”
Now, speaking to Fader, Lorde stressed that the tweet had been sent in jest and that her and Diplo are “friends”.
“I love Wes [Pentz, Diplo’s real name] and he’s a big brother to me and one of my first friends in the industry, and part of having a friendship with someone like that is not letting them say stupid shit,” Lorde said.
“Taylor’s my friend as well, and I’m a girl, and if I see some weird body-shaming on my feed I’m going to be like, ‘Hey man…’ We do still love each other, hopefully.”
Diplo had previously remixed Lorde’s ‘Tennis Court’ and contributed to the soundtrack for the upcoming film ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1’, which Lorde curated.
Meanwhile, earlier this week Diplo named his new son ‘Lazer’, possibly an homage to his side-project Major Lazer.
